Make sure you have had your boiler serviced before winter sets in. Nobody wants to get caught out with no heating or hot water.
This week JWF have been removing this very tired old boiler at Abbots Bromley School for Girls.
After getting rid of all the black cobwebs, we set to work on removing the existing boiler and replacing it with a modern alternative. This would be much more economical for the client. Saving them some pennies, which is always lovely!
Wood flooring is a fantastic backdrop in residential and commercial interiors. These floorboards are available in either solid or engineered construction, so the decision as to which type is suitable in your project isn’t always clear. Help is at hand.
Solid Or Engineered Wood Flooring
Solid wood flooring is the most popular. Each floorboard is made from 100% solid hardwood such as Oak or Walnut. Due to its solid construction, this floor will last up to 100 years and will react well to sanding, a process that can rejuvenate an old looking floor. The strength of the floorboard makes it particularly popular in commercial settings as it can cope with high footfall.
Engineered Wood flooring is the more veritable of the two. Each floorboard is made from a top layer of solid wood, but the core is made from plywood and mdf. On one hand the floorboard does not have the same service life as the solid type, however on the other hand it can be fitted across the entire interior even in wet and high humidity areas such as the bathroom and kitchen (in conjunction with waterproof UV lacquered coating).
Wood Flooring Fitting
JWF Building Solutions can help you fit your wood flooring using one of two common fitting methods. The two are nail or glue down vs floating installation.
Nail or Glue Down – This method relies on nails or bonding agents to secure the floorboards directly to the subfloor. Engineered wood floor may be fitted using this method or the next, however solid wood flooring must be fitted using nail or glue. The weight of the solid wood is simply too heavy for anything but the most secure method.
Floating – This method replies on each floorboard holding its counterpart in place. An underlay is highly recommended with a floating installation to prevent contact between the floor and the subfloor and more importantly to serve as a moisture barrier and insulation. Engineered wood flooring is suitable for floating installation, but not solid wood flooring.

The CSCS Card is an industry wide measure of your competence on a building site, both in terms of health and safety and of skill level.
The Card is used to make sure that the workers on a building site are who they say they are, and that their skills and qualifications are as they claim.
The Construction Skills Certification Scheme was originally introduced to quash problems with site safety and worker skills that were being experienced by employers in construction. From an employer’s point of view, each worker’s CSCS Card is an insurance policy: that they are technically able to work on a building site, and that they are safely qualified to do so.
There are a number of advantages to having a Black CSCS card. Firstly it will show anyone you are working for or with that you have the qualification and it will give them the confidence that you have the necessary ability and have been able to show it to the examiners. It also means that you are up to date with the latest Health and Safety and at the higher level as a manager is expected to know more than a trainee or supervisor. It is also helpful for keeping up to date with what you need to know.
