Chimney demolition

Chimney Demolition

34 & 36 Richill Park Belfas BT5 6HG

6th December 2018 

Duration = Both Chimneys in 1 Day

Introduction

This chimney demolition is quite odd as both Chimneys had already been demolished and rebuilt with full Chimney lead trays costing thousands of Pounds. However when they were rebuilt they both had the very same problems symptoms as they had before they spent all the money.

Summary.

Unfortunately the costly error of mistaking Moisture & Mildew caused by Condensation for

Water ingress was made.

Conclusion

Don’t take the advice of just one Builder. If it’s going to cost a lot of cash. Get a

second opinion, preferably from an expert.

Dry Lined Partition Wall

Drylining – Partition Wall  

Mercedes Boucher, Belfast BT12 6HU

February 14th 2017

Duration = less than 1 day.

Introduction

This partition is odd as it has neither Thermal or Acoustic insulation and No Fire Rating.

Its only purpose is to stop light coming into the Photographers area were he Photographs the

Cars. It only required a very basic single boarding either side and for or effect all the uprights

and track were cut off site and Hot mud – “Easifill 20” (which goes off in 20 Minutes) was

used. On top of this we used 3 coats normal White emulsion.

Summary

Because the job was relatively small it was deliberately scheduled for one day to shove the

obvious advantages that dry-lining has over traditional finish etc when surfaces are painted

and finished the same day.

Conclusion

Drywall compound is a lot more versatile than Gypsum Plaster.
