  • Can I improve my heating efficiency?
    Regular maintenance, proper insulation, and upgrading to energy-efficient models can enhance the efficiency of your gas heating system.
  • Why is my water pressure low and how can it be fixed?
    Low water pressure can result from various issues, including leaks, blockages, or problems with the water supply. Identifying the root cause can be complex, so it's best to consult with a professional plumber who can assess the situation and provide an effective solution.
  • What to do if my boiler is creating strange sounds?
    If your boiler starts making strange noises such as banging, whistling, or gurgling, it could indicate a variety of issues such as air in the system, low water pressure, or a problem with the pump. It's important to contact a professional to diagnose and fix the problem to avoid further damage.
  • How to spot a gas leak?
    Common signs of a gas leak include a distinctive odour, hissing sounds, and physical symptoms. If you suspect a gas leak, evacuate the area, call your gas company, and avoid using any electrical devices.
  • How long does rendering/plastering take to dry?
    The drying time for rendering or plastering depends on several factors, including the type of material used, the thickness of the application, and environmental conditions such as humidity and temperature. Generally, rendering can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to fully dry, while plastering typically dries within 24 to 48 hours. It's essential to allow adequate drying time before painting or applying any finishes.
  • What is the difference between rendering and plastering?
    Rendering and plastering are both techniques used to cover and protect walls, but they serve different purposes. Rendering is typically applied to external walls to provide weatherproofing and aesthetic enhancement, while plastering is primarily used for interior walls to create a smooth finish for painting or wallpapering.
  • Can rendering or plastering be applied to all surfaces?
    Rendering and plastering can be applied to most surfaces, including brick, block, concrete, and plasterboard. However, proper surface preparation is crucial to ensure adhesion and a smooth finish. Surfaces should be clean, dry, and free from any loose debris or contaminants before applying rendering or plastering materials. Additionally, some specialized surfaces may require specific techniques or products for optimal results.
  • How do I know if I have a leak?
    Signs of a plumbing leak include unexplained increases in water usage, damp or discolored spots on walls or ceilings, musty odours, and the sound of running water/drips when no fixtures are in use. It's best to call in an expert as soon as you see the warning signs to get ahead of the damage.
  • How often should I have my plumbing and appliances inspected?
    It's advisable to have your plumbing/appliances inspected or serviced annually to catch any potential issues early and prevent costly repairs.
  • What should I do if a pipe has burst?
    Locate the main water shutoff valve in your home and turn it off to stop the flow of water. Turn off utilities and central heating. If the burst pipe is near electrical outlets or appliances, turn off the electricity to avoid the risk of electrical shock. Open all taps to allow any remaining water in the pipes to drain out. Call a plumber. Manage the damage as much as possible and contact a trustworthy plumber immediately. Address water damage: Clean up any standing water and take steps to dry out affected areas to prevent mould and structural damage.
  • What type of tiles should I choose?
    The best type of tiles for your project depends on various factors such as your design preferences, budget, and the level of maintenance you're willing to commit to. Porcelain and ceramic tiles are popular choices for floors and walls due to their durability and water resistance. For a more luxurious look, natural stone tiles like marble or travertine can add elegance to your space, although they require more maintenance.
  • How do I choose the right grout colour for my tiles?
    Grout colour can significantly impact the overall look of your tiled surface. For a seamless appearance, you can opt for a grout color that closely matches the colour of your tiles. Alternatively, contrasting grout colors can create a striking visual effect and highlight the individual tiles. It's essential to consider factors such as the size of the tiles, the desired aesthetic, and the level of maintenance you're comfortable with when choosing the grout colour.
  • Can I tile over existing tiles?
    In some cases, it's possible to tile over existing tiles, but it's essential to assess the condition of the existing tiles and the substrate before proceeding. Tiling over existing tiles can save time and labor costs, but it may result in increased thickness and weight on the walls or floors. Additionally, the surface must be clean, flat, and free of any loose tiles or debris to ensure proper adhesion. It's advisable to consult with a professional tiler to determine the feasibility of tiling over existing tiles in your specific situation.

  • What Is The Cause Of Damp/Rising Damp?
    Damp is caused when external moisture penetrates the walls of your property. Damp is caused by external factors, so it could be attributed to damp underneath the building, high water levels outside, or it could be down to a leak or bad drainage. All buildings should have a DPC (damp proof course) which is a damp proof membrane which stops the water from getting through, however with older buildings this often isn't the case and will require a DPC injection (damp-proof injection). We would send a RedRing specialist to investigate the cause of the damp first, treat the damp itself and aim to fix the problem from the source.
