    I really want to go in there but am concerned I might end up spending a ridiculous sum I can't afford on a Japanese knife cos I really want one

    Im not sure. Best to call Tony. Think he prices by job. Sounds like it'll need two workers so obviously the price will be based on that too.

    It was shut of an odd one!
    We eventually found it was the water tank in the attic which had an overflow pipe that should stick out beyond the wall. It had slipped and was gushing the water down the wall. It must have been happening for some time as there was green slime on the outside wall.
    Anyway easily resolved if that is the issue but lots of redecorating needed.

    bit of a random one this... does anyone know who may be able to make us a new spindle for the bannister? have tried to find one 'out of the box' but the design we have doesn't seem to be standard. it's such a small thing but needs sorting as i'm worried small child will fall through the hole sooner or later.

    Hi All,

    Can anyone recommend a good divorce solicitor in the SE24/SE5/SW2 area that will try to prolong a divorce case?

    Looking for a plumber to diagnose / fix / replace a shower/bathroom pump with an annoying intermittent fault: sometimes it gives pressure, sometimes not (though always seems to make a pumping sound).

    Colin may be good but the phones haven't been answered in the last 24 hours and I've had no response to the voicemails I've left. Guess it's a bad time of year. Had to go with another bunch now.

    Hello everyone.

    We have a rather interesting situation in our roof, where some pigeons have managed to get in and cause mischief.

    Does anyone know a suitable local tradesman who could clean up the mess and fix a covering over the hatch that they are getting in from?

    I can recommend roofer Steve who did some repairs in the summer for us & also for friends - nice experienced reliable old-school guy - tel 07476599909 or 07719080311. He's not really online. I don't know how he'd feel about cleaning though.

    Anyone know of a decent TV aerial installer who can install and run TV cables to 4 - 5 rooms?

    Not quite Brixton - but a recommendation for Balfes bikes on Streatham High Road
    The manager repaired the puncture on a tubeless tyre and resealed it etc for me as a walk-in today. £15 all in for probably 30 - 60 minutes work. He didn't mock me once for being an incompetent for not being able to do it my self. Also showed me all his tricks of the trade so that I can try to sort it myself next time

    Can anyone recommend Corgy registered gas engineer, we need someone to replace an overflow pipe on Vaillant Ecotec boiler. (currently in copper, needs to be in plastic)

    Steve sorted this for me. Prices have gone up a bit since 2011, but he has done a great job for me (despite accidentally breaking a window when his tools fell out of his tool belt and landed on my glass porch roof - which he is sorting out). Thanks for the recommendation.

    I used Denmay in Station RD a few years back. Nice people and the cost was considerably lower than the JLP.
