    Default DIY - Help Please!

    Right this summer commences a big summer blowout on the DIY. I am going to be doing the following:
    - New flat roof
    - Installing a new bath jacuzzi
    - Installing a new shower with multijet
    - Decking in the garden
    - Hot Towel Raditator

    Now this might not sound much to some peeps but for me this is a biggie! I am good with tools.

    So far been looking and thinking of doing a EDM roof membrane over the existing stuff. All boards are solid and fine but the felt has had it. Any other ideas?

    Jacuzzi wise I want a good bath, very long wiht centre taps. Any cheap but good quality suppliers people can recommend?

    Shower wise any good suppliers again?

    Decking doesn't look hard from the online guides either.... Any recommendations again?

    Mucho thanks and if anyone can recommend in the Middlesbrough area even better!!!

    RE the roof...what looks good timber might not be, and whats your insulation like?

    Any way, EDPM roofing systems are pretty good, tackling them yourself may be another issue....if you need any drawings / technical info on any construction issue, pm me and i'll sort you something out...p.s. you could lay some additional Celotex GA 3000 rigid insulation on the roof deck before laying the rubber finish!!!!!!

    Good Luck John.

    those heating pipes btw, I wouldn't re-use them myself, after they stop getting water flowing through them they scale up, could cause you probs at the boiler eventually, all for the sake of a couple of flux sessions and some cheap copper pipe.
