Welcome to the DIY Forum. (Gardening now has its own forum here)
Please take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with the rules of the Forum.

This board is intended for discussion of DIY and DIY Projects, undertaken by fellow users, and as a place to exchange tips and techniques. General rules of etiquette and good manners are to be respected at all times. Please refrain from posting personal abuse, bad language, advertising, spam or anything else that may warrant a ban.

Whilst advice might be sought/given, Posters should make every effort to verify advice expressed herein with an independent and knowledgeable third party before undertaking any major DIY project. The advice and opinions expressed on this forum are not those of Boards.ie Ltd. and the management accepts no responsibility for what is written and posted here. Boards.ie Ltd. and its contributors do not accept liability should your house fall down due to following advice or opinions expressed on this forum.

As the For Sale section is now closed, if you wish to make an advertisement for a something like free bricks/tiles/plants please go to www.adverts.ie which is our new advertisement site. All ads are free and you will also find a services section where you can request a plumber/tiler/handyman or similarly advertise the fact that you can provide these services. As threads cannot be moved to this new site like before, any such ads will be locked and moved to the recycle bin. This is a reasonable rule and as an example, the same would happen if you were to advertise a car for sale in the motors section.

Please be aware that there now exists a Legal Discussion forum on boards, however any request for legal advice on ethier forum regarding planning issues or neighbour disputes etc. may result in a ban. General planning topics can be discussed in the Construction & Self Building & Architecture & Planning forum. If you do visit ethier forum, ensure to read the charter there before posting a new thread.

Linking to websites or companies is not allowed for first time or relatively new posters.

Lastly, any defamation found in this forum will result in the thread/post being edited or deleted. Defamation is when something is said about another person (legal, natural or otherwise, that means companies can be defamed) that is untrue and damaging.

• Defamation occurs where a false statement is published about a person which tends to lower that person in the eyes of right-thinking members of society. Defamation is a generic term – slander is defamation in a transient form, while libel is defamation in written or permanent (or equivalent) form.

• Defamatory statements include accusations of professional incompetence, or of unethical, illegal or immoral behaviour.
First time posts from new users that are used purely to promote a business will be deleted.
