    For glass, must be double glazed these days. For the minimal increase, I’d get low-e coating to reflect heat. For noise, laminated is similar to double glazed but doesn’t have the thermal efficiency. So double glazed over laminated for me. I believe you can get laminated double glazed, but not sure if any window supplier can supply or fit standard window frames.

    It’s an issue with induction cooktops. Condensation forms on the grills/filters as hot steam meets cold metal grills/filters. Reason why it doesn’t with gas/electric cooktops is the heat from the gas/electric cooktops also heats up the grills/filter. I have to use a lid when boiling water on my induction cooktop. S

    Ok fair enough. I’d try the pliers first, if that doesn’t work, then the Stanley knife. There’s not that much to lose. Sent frotalk

    Take the cover off and get a torch, you’ll find out. Having said that a fan in a sealed box wouldn’t extract any air. lk

    JB1 replied to a thread Painting Toilet Bowl in Bathrooms
    While asbestos is serious, I believe it would be easy to mitigate the risk if you’re just removing the existing toilet and then replacing it with another toilet bowl. You’re not going to disturb the tile glue or grout. Can’t see any paint sticking to the toilet bowl long term. Sk

    I should get a test just in case. However I don't think I need to would need to replace the non bath walls anytime soon. Much more likely I'd replace the Tilux if I replaced the bath.

    Good point. It's there's only around say 6sqm of the stuff, and should be able to remove as whole sheets. Can DIY. Now is this (patterned tile sheeting) likely also asbestos?

    Ok Thanks for letting me know. I wouldn't have suspected it to be asbestos as it looks more like Masonite rather than the fibre cement sheeting asbestos. If I do remove it in future, I'll definitely get it tested. Sk

    Thanks Phil. I got a great deal on the vanity. Easy to find bargains when you don't care so much. $800 reduced down to $200. Very well built. 30mm thick carcass and Hettich soft close runners. Only thing I don't like about it is the vanity top material- polymarble rather than glazed porcelain. Polymarble can stain.

    Thanks. I don't think a trim is necessary but is too late now anyway for aluminum angle. The edges aren't sharp. The tiles are ceramic with rectified edge, I suppose I could run some sandpaper on the corners. Quite impressed with the hybrid flooring and it's brilliant value at $25sqm. If I lived closer, I would do the kitchen and laundry with the same stuff.
