Replacing parts that aren't faulty! Shame on you Homeserve.
Review of HomeServe by sallyknight4

Advantages: Yearly service and boiler cover
Disadvantages: Can't be trusted not to make up parts and faults.

My boiler required its annual service which is provided via Homeserve. My landlord was present at the time the engineer came to carry out the service. The engineer told her that the ironiser pin needed replacing as it could be a fire hazard and that it wa ... Read review

Good on you for standing up for what is right - and shame on HomeServe for attempting to fleece your landlady. Sounds like she has an excellent tenant, and you an excellent landlady - just the way it should be! R. by RICHADA
Glad she got her money back! by ryanando

Review of Dremel Trio by blissman70

Advantages: Easy to use, good all rounder and a nice price for what is really three tools in one
Disadvantages: none

One Hell of a failure when it comes to cutting through wood
Review of Einhell BT-CS 860L 860W by blissman70

Advantages: Good weight, extra bits, guides included and easy to use
Disadvantages: Motor over heats quickly, blades stop spinning and just has not got the stamina needed

I like DIY, especially if I’ve got the right tools for the job in hand. Which is why I decided to invest in a mini circular saw as the big beast that I usually use were a little too cumbersome for the job I had in mind. So this is when I stumbled upon a ... Read review

Not for the professionals but helped me achieve a better finish
Review of Vitrex Grout Finisher by jipp05

Advantages: Just helped to smooth and give a better finish than I would have otherwise achieved
Disadvantages: Only really needed for people who can't get a good finish with a trowel

Not for the professionals but helped me achieve a better finish One of the most important aspects of tiling as I found out was finishing the grouting neatly so that the spaces between the tiles were smooth and not bumpy. When I first tried tiling m ... Read review
