Re: Premarco - Question

Yes, the premarco is like a sub-frame to which the actual window is attached, it's like a pre-forma and needs to be right!

Re: Malaga Airport Train Ticket Machine

Hi Gruff, basically the machine asks you where you want to go, all stations listed, select one.What sort of ticket you want and if you are going to pay cash or use the RENFE pre-pay card that commuters use, if you pay cash the choice is coins or notes (Two different slots).. ( You can also use a cre...

Re: Replacement number plate

When I needed one for my trailer I was directed to the Renault Garage alongside the 340 on the Mijas road into Fuengirola ( just past LIDL). I went to the spare parts desk showed the log book and told the nice man what I wanted. A "Vale", and 10 mins later, he re-appeared with it in his ha...

Re: Artificial Grass

Thanks for that Sid, I have a leaf blower/hoover...hadn't thought of that.
It will be about 20 sq.m and placed on paving slabs which are laid on a concrete screed.
Are you pleased with yours?

Artificial Grass

I am hoping for firsthand experience comments about the long term use of Artificial Grass. I am anticipating carpeting our pool deck with good quality product; I am concerned about how one maintains the area over the years. Has anyone lived with Artificial Grass for a moderate period of time please?...

Re: Giraffe Franchise Malaga Airport Airside

Katy, that was a very arrogant question. Time spent at an Airport is only part, of what can entail, a whole days travel as others have pointed out. What was your motive for asking the question I wonder? The point I was making was that the Giraffe in Malaga Airport is best avoided, whether you just w...

Giraffe Franchise Malaga Airport Airside

The Franchise for Bar and Restaurant which used to be O'Learys, just past duty free, is now a Giraffe holding.
It is atrocious, avoid at all costs. Quite unbelievable. Bad service and poor food. Anybody else suffered?

Re: Cuacho with fibre

Caucho con Fibre is very good on concrete roofs but I think on a tiled roof you would definately need the matting, there just iisn't enough "body" in caucho alone for Tiles. Just a thought...are you talking about a flat tiled roof as in balcony by any chance rather than the pitched roof I ...

Re: Roofing Costs

If you are not restricted by planning or other regulations Insulated roof sheets would easily span that ( Flat Roof Option obviously) for very little effort and cost. Just raise one long wall a couple of feet. You can even get mock tile profile if you prefer Google insulated roof sheets for a view. ...
