Here are some Handy Tips from DIY Dave Handyman Service

Turn Your Balcony into a Loggia

Does this sound familiar? You basically no longer use your balcony.

The neighbours are too loud, it's always too windy and you cannot stand the smells from the fish and chip shop down the street. In that case your balcony is wasted space. But there is a solution: turn your balcony into a loggia.

We use a special window system which will turn your balcony into a new, airy room of your apartment. Just give us a call today.

Create a New Vista with a Garden Plateau

Does your garden end at your neighbor’s fence? And the Lake District starts right behind your neighbor’s garden? In this case you should move to another level. We will design a stylish and well-proportioned garden plateau for you, which you can use for a set of patio furniture, a group of trees or just for a little stroll.

Our plateaus have a solid foundation and are framed with picturesque nature walls. On request we can further enhance your new landscaping with a matching lighting concept.

Fixing things to walls

This seems like a simple thing to do but there are several important considerations.

First you need to know what type of wall it is, as this sets the type of drill and drill bit needed. Brick, timber, plasterboard stud, cement block all these have different requirements.

Once you know what equipment to use you need to check to see if there are any wires or pipes behind the wall and to see if the wall is strong enough to carry the weight you are loading onto it.

Hanging wallpaper

Hanging wallpaper isn’t as complicated as it might seem thanks to new techniques like “paste the wall” wallpaper. This has been made simpler because there’s no need to apply the paste to the wallpaper, fold it and let it soak in before hanging it.

With “paste the wall” wallpaper, there’s no need for a pasting table, which means you might be able to save up to 30% of your time compared to traditional wallpaper hanging methods.
