ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

However, ebuild will remain on-line in archive mode (ie no posting facilties) for several weeks so that users can use it as an information resource.

I Went To The Builders Merchant To Buy Air Tightness Tape.

The flexible sealant I got from that above link was very sticky. Put a line along the block work and pushed the window tape on to it. As it was blue you could see it spread out so if you missed any bits it was very obvious. As its flexible you can move it to suit the strip that goes onto the window.

Did you need to seal / prime the blockwork before using your blue sticky stuff Declan?

Declan, was that the Orcon adhesive you mean? In theory use:

Or is there a more appropriate tape for window frame to masonry whilst using something like Orcon for the adhesive on to the masonry?

thanks
James

This is the tape I used. Has a sticky bit you attach to the frame and the rest you stick to the wall with the fortax 6400 sealant. Link to it on site not working.
Didn't seal the wall as I had a scratch coat over the tape then a wet plaster finish so it was well sealed in.

Perfect, will get these bits soon. Thanks declan :)

Declan, did you order the Winflex and fortax from clean energy Ireland or get it from that German site as I can't see where I can actually buy this online?

thanks
James

Yeah from clean energy Ireland. Got my membrane and the jointing tape from them as well. Send an email to both with a list of what you need and see who works out the best.

No, because they are already here, no one is talking about sending people home ( back to the country of their origin, home is here )

I imagine the restricting MBC operations in the UK might cause more consternation in these parts ......

Just means the next MBC whether Irish, French,German or other EU won't get a chance in the UK. The fact that MBC have got a foot in the door before it's slammed shut is irrelevant. MBC are a presence in the UK because of the EU not despite it
