Picture Folder Name Pages:-

Since 14 June 2019 I have also started to put my own full-sized 4000 x 3000 digital Camera images into the relevant topics in this website again for use in the Public Domain - since there may be 9 or more to a page the resulting
43 Mb website page may take some time to load
. Since I have more than 26,522 photos using 111,460 Mb of my disk space, then the extra upfront cost per annum before creating more folders like Photo coleus is just over 3.16 pence per photo has been paid for the total number in that entire photo collection before any are sent to the website.

It is hoped that you may find them of interest.

Damage to Trees in Pavement in Madeira caused by the action of man during January/February 2019.

Solution to holes in trees.
Remove mesh covers and rot within the hole. Then blast the remaining rot with a high pressure water hose to try and clear more of the rot. Spray with Boron (a water based preservative kills only wood boring insects - not spiders, birds or bats) as a treatment for insect, wet and dry rot attack. While it is still wet, apply a layer of Expanding Foam to the bottom of the hole. Immediately place bottles on this 
and allow to set for 5 minutes. Apply another layer of expanding foam and another layer of bottles. The aim of the bottles is to occupy space, they are not there as a deterrent. That is why the foam has to be in contact with the inside of the tree not the glass bottle. The poisons in the foam will kill anything eating it and the foam does stick better when wet with water. Keep up this operation until the hole is covered. 
Leave to set and then paint the foam surface twice with a recommended water-based, but not oil-based, sealant.

Solutions to stop creating holes in trees.
When a branch is cut off, remember to cut it off on the other side of the Branch Collar. (See Figure 1 - Optimum position of the final pruning cut in "Guide to Tree Pruning" by the Arboricultural Association which shows the branch collar within and outside the tree. My Comments: I disagree with their recommendation not to apply wound paint as you can see the result if you do not paint trees which are dehydrated, starved and gassed as these trees in the pavements of Madeira are.) 
Once that is done, then immediately apply Boron and 2 coats of protective sealant as used for holes in trees above.

Solution to current problem on these mosaic pavements:-
Carefully remove the existing marble mosaic, concrete, tarmac, or paver and 
the concrete/metal enclosures round the trees. If any further solid material like gravel, bricks, stones etc can be removed as well, then do so. Level the ground with sharp sand (Sharp sand is like pyramids which lock together, builder's sand is like ball bearings which displaces itself elsewhere if it can when downward pressure is applied to it). 
The time to execute the above and complete the refilling with sharp sand must 
be completed within 20 minutes, otherwise the exposed roots will dry up and die. 
It is useful to now water it to settle the sand and keep the roots wet. Put the roll 
of continuous geotextile over the top before laying down the
CEDAdrive slabs on 
top. Fill the slabs with the required colours of marble pea-shingle and leave a 
3 inch (7.5 cm) gap between the trunk and the CEDAdrive section (Besides black 
and white marble, you can get many other colours). Spread Green Manure seed in 
the gap and cover to the same level as the top of the CEDAdrive with its pea-shingle; 
with sharp sand. The Green manure will provide a little nourishment for the tree 
and protection for the expanding trunk, together with protection from cigarettes. 
Further protection can be carried out by providing seating round the trunk, so that 
old fogeys like me can rest.
Pop-up irrigation water pipes can be supplied from these water manholes currently in the pavements and they can be set to irrigate each section in rotation from 
Midnight to 06:00 in the morning. A dissolved mixture of seaweed, fully composted animal waste and fully worm composted human food waste from restaurants/hotels can be applied over a pavement an hour before that section is irrigated 3 times a year to provide the same fertilizer regime as practised by the gardeners at the Pestana Mirimar for that hotel's garden. The drained solids from the above fertilizer solution can be applied over the sand between the tree and the CEDAdrive.
An alternative to using marble pea-shingle is Topmix Permeable Concrete within the
CEDAdrive slabs. This would perform the same function as the marble pea-shingle, but it may be cheaper and quicker to use in other pavements. The depth of the Cedadrive slabs might have to be increased if traffic is allowed to cross or park on this type of pavement surface.

166 trees in the pavements in a short section of a road in Funchal, Madeira are being slowly, starved, dehydrated, asphyxiated, poisoned by tarmac and concrete, burnt inside their hollow trunks, roots pounded by 40 ton lorries or shoes of pedestrians, and allowed to rot until killed off during February 2019 (see information in Problems with trees in pavements in Funchal, Madeira in January/February 2018 Page, which appears to have had no effect) as shown by my 433 photos in the following pages within the Home Topic:-

  • Ways to install trees at the bottom of pages 26-37 includes the following on watering - "Throughout the warm, summer weather, the tree will need the equivalent of 1 inch (2.5 cm) of rain per week and this water needs to be applied about twice each week (My Comments - since this is over the entire root area of this tree - which is at least the radius from the trunk of the height of the tree - then if the CEDAdrive slabs are used, apply 0.5 inchs (1.25 cms) of irrigation twice a week to that entire area).  Approximately 5-10 gallons (20 – 40 liters) of water is sufficient to moisten a 20-inch (50 cm) diameter root ball.  A 40-inch (100 cm) diameter root ball has more than twice the volume and would require 35-45 gallons (130 – 170 liters). 
    Another way to measure water need is with the following formula:   The tree needs 5 gallons minimum and 5 additional gallons per inch of diameter (DBH); hence a 3 inch DBH tree needs 20 gallons of water per week to equal 1 inch of rainfall, in other words, 5 gallons minimum + (3 X 5) 15 gallons = 20 gallons."
  • The Pruning and Maintenance of Mature Trees:
    • 'Lifting' or the removal of the lower branch systems,
    • Crown Thinning and
    • Crown Reduction
    • at the bottom of
      pages 38-45
  • Explaination of watersprouts and watershoots in the Watersprouts on Trees in Pavements in Funchal, Madeira Page. These should be removed from the trees since they are weakly joined to the branch/trunk from which they originated and are dangerous to use as supports for electricians or tree surgeons; as well as likely to fall down in a storm.

IMG 0034.JPG
Some years later she asked to replace the sloping back lawn, patio and crazy paving with a level patio.

Work Item 3 is
abbey gate cottages plan 7
IMG 0086.JPG
so I came up with a proposed plan.

Work Item 3 is
abbey gate cottages plan 36
IMG 0536.JPG
When I started I looked at the crazy paving outside the house

Work Item 3 is
abbey gate cottages plan 39
IMG 0539.JPG
and the entry garden gate, I found that I could not get my wheelbarrow through because the new gate had been installed too far down the hill and the roof of Firewood Store stopped it going at right-angles to allow full access.

So -

Work Item 3 is
abbey gate cottages plan 6
IMG 0084.JPG
I replaced the open fronted Firewood Store with a new roof structure which was then felted, battened, retiled with Kent Peg Tiles and leaded to stop the rain going down the house wall or the back wall of the Firewood Store.

Work Item 3 is
abbey gate cottages plan 5
IMG 0082.JPG
Having reached the back door, I found that rainwater was coming into the cottage .
As you can see from the plan; the rainwater was then stopped from coming in.

Work Item 3 is
abbey gate cottages plan 9
IMG 0099.JPG
But, in removing the crazy paving by the kitchen, I found that the drain was broken
and that the mains water pipe was leaking, so

Work Item 3 is
abbey gate cottages plan 8
IMG 0098.JPG
they were replaced.

Before I could get back onto my landscaping job the neighbour requested that I descale his hot water pipe to his bath. Was I now a fully qualified plumber? So having become a sanitation engineer, a joiner, electrician, roofer and water engineer, not being a plumber; I immediately did it for him.

Work Item 3 is

IMG 0085.JPG
So I got on and did the requested patio, electrical sockets and water taps. Then, she requested a dry stone wall. So, I became a dry stone waller in contructing 66 feet of waal that could be sat on using ragstone.

Pages 10, 11, 12, 13 contain information concerning the complete rewiring of my home, with the report by a qualified electrician about the result and his statement:-
"The result of my observations and testing, I am recommending that all the fixed wiring be recovered and a complete new fixed wiring installation is installed. Unfortunately the work previously carried out is of such a poor standard I cannot re use any of it."

Unfortunately, any electrical work carried out at your home is your responsibility.
If it is not carried out correctly, then you are stuffed :-

  • you need to get another electrician to make out a report so that your contracted electrician cannot claim any more from you,
  • then there is no point contacting the organisations that the contracted electrician is a member of, since they wish you to use the same elecrician to make the job up to standard,
  • so you write off the expense and go through the rigmarole all over again, if you carry out the work yourself then you still need a qualified electrician to check your work and give you an electrical certificate, so that you can eventually sell your house. You used to be able to put up your own scaffolding, but not anymore - you must employ a recognised firm instead.
  • if your gas boiler is fitted the wrong way round as mine was, and the annual maintenance engineer did not discover that for 6 years, then your house could have blown up before it was found out and then you had it installed correctly - others who had their gas boilers incorrectly installed have refused to have them changed and so their boilers could also blow up. If the Grundfos pump that pumps the water from the boiler round your house to the hot water tank and radiators is incorrectly positioned, then its motor will not be lubricated by that water and will need replacing within 6 months - another job for an incompetent plumber.
  • the government is acting as a complete terrorist by building the new school opposite me, with its entry from Otterham Quay Lane instead of Seymour Road. The stationary traffic will kill the drivers and the pupils when being dropped off and collected at the end of the day, but this notification to the Department of Education who have paid for the school has been entirely dismissed and so asthma will occur for pupils who will not have access to doctors, since Medway has an insufficiency.
  • the building going on in the country, especially the South-East is crazy, since the amount already built within the last 5 years has exceeeded the proposed increase of water supply by Southern Water up to 2035.

 

I am currently working on updating the Common and Botanical Name Galleries of the UK Wildflowers - 2 June 2021.

Having discovered that the National Trust is deciding as to whether it will put plant labels for each of the plant groups in Sissinghurst Castle Gardens or not, I am disappointed to note that the current ones are getting broken, unreadable due to age or not existing at that garden. They also do have the manpower to provide these plant labels - They are currently looking for a head gardener to look after Sissinghurst Castle Gardens and other gardens with a total of only 8 staff. I have pointed out to the manager the lack of foundations under the paths in the garden and the fact that the concrete slab paths either side of the stone path in the middle going down the Lime Walk are all topsy-turvy. This means that people could fall over when they are wet from the rain - this is due to heave by the roots of the pleached limes. I have suggested that they lay weed control fabric over the existing ground where these conrete slabs and insert a depth of 4 inches (10cms) of Type I Rodstong, with 2 inches (5 cms) of sharp sand over the top before laying the consrete slabs back on top for those 2 side paths. Lift up the stone slabs from the central path and repeat the process. That is providing that the soil is based on sand not clay - if clay is involved then the Type I Roadstone depth may need to be extended to 8 inches (20 cms).

Due to lack of money, there is no money to improve the situation until the possibility that the returns from this current year might make up for their losses during the last pandemic year and things might improve in the following years. It is a shame that the 250,000 visitors to the garden have to put with lack of safety due to this slipshod maintenance procedure as do the ones in the Wisley Royal Horticultural Society Garden in 2014 for the same reason. Wisley only has 1,000,000 visitors a year and after 5 requests it takes from April to November for the pivoting slabs to have some sharp sand inserted under them to stop that and then for that sand to grow grass by April the following year, indicating that there was no foundation under that path in the Mixed Borders bed even after repair.

Why do institutions in the UK that have visitors to their premises ignore the correct installation procedure of providing access throughout their gardens as these minute organisations such as the RHS and the National Trust for year after year? One man and his dog do the maintenance at each property - unfortunately the man is still on holiday and the dog cannot keep up with demand.

 

 

 

 

 

Plant Labelling - A suggestion for plant labelling to help visitors

A different solution is that each gardening member of the RHS staff at Wisley be provided with Large White Plastic Angled-Head Labels which are 20 inches (50 cms) in height with a 6 x 4 inch (16 x 10 cms) writing surface and a Marker pen with Black ink to provide a good temporary label for the above broken label (in Lost Flowers page) or for missing labels.
Then, the black background permanent label could be ordered at the end of that working day to replace this temporary label, which has been inserted into the ground in front of the relevant plant section.

If you are concerned about these labels going on "Walkabout", then insert another white label behind the plant and make it invisible to the public.

Mr Manderson of Manderson Electrical Services Ltd was employed to rewire our home,
due to rodents eating our cables.
Mr Manderson is a Part P Registered Electrician with Napit; Registered Competent Person
Electrical; Approved Electrician from Napit; City & Guilds Qualified; Part P Electrical
Safety; and Honest & Transparent.
His firm was employed to replace all the wiring, power sockets, light switches and lights and
make sure that rodents could not attack them to chew through the cables or cause an
electrical problem.

"Concerns about electrical work with its photos

The work was needed because we had an infestation of rodents and cables had been
chewed through, so as well as restoring all power, arrangements to stop this happening
again were paramount. We are not confident that this has been achieved, but it is what
we thought we were paying for.
Not all wires have been encased in a sheath and even when they have, there are still areas
exposed. We relied upon Mr Manderson’s expertise to provide a very high level of protection
from rodents, so we would have expected other arrangements to be made to protect ends
of the metal sheath:-

  • 1. We provided wire wool, but little may have been used on only one hole in the
    wall in the lounge.
  • 2. Photo 78 shows one of the new ceiling lights hanging out of the ceiling in the
    back bedroom. Besides the lighting cables to the ceiling being partially covered by
    metal codex trunking; parts of those 2 wires are unprotected. Does that mean
    that all the other new ceiling lights have sections of wiring leading to their
    transformers without trunking?
  • 3. It would appear that all the new ceiling lights in the house for the top floor,
    bedroom floor, stairs and cloakroom, dining room, hall and lounge have these
    unprotected / untrunked cables between the transformer and light. Does this mean
    that every wire between the transformer and the new low-voltage light can be
    chewed through by rodents, which is directly against the contract?
  • 4. There was an occasion when Chris has remarked that a hole had been left
    in the lounge ceiling and not filled in (The electricians cut through the ceiling
    twice in parallel to the hall about 6 inches apart see one cut in photo 58 with
    the other hidden by the batten to the left of it. They then removed part of the
    plasterboard between these cuts closest to the kitchen see photo 23. This would
    have have given them access to that space to bring the new wiring to where it
    was required. This exposed a large hole in the ceiling with old lath/plaster ceiling
    above the new plasterboard put below it. For safety reasons, they were told to
    batten the ceiling and put up a new plasterboard under this frame.
    When I pointed out for the new ceiling in the dining room that the new ceiling
    lights were longer than the depth of the batten and the plasterboard, so that
    if they did put them up then they would have to make holes in the old ceiling
    above, they were astonished. So I said if the battening is doubled would that
    get over the problem and they said yes. This would be okay if they did not take
    down the old ceiling lights leaving holes in the old ceiling for the rodents to drop
    down into a complete open box of new cables and exposed wire. We did not
    see the state of the old ceiling before the new ceiling was up under it in the
    Dining Room, nor in the lounge or extra walling in the back bedroom, dining
    room and front bedroom. Also, anywhere where the new cable came into or out
    of that ceiling through the side walls with no filling in of those holes would also
    provide access for the rodents.
    The following day I asked about the filling in of the other hole leading to the hallway
    in the ceiling before they would cover it with another section of new plasterboard.
    They said sorry, they had not got the wire wool from me, but if I provided it then they
    would squirt foam in the other hole then the wire wool and then more foam. I was not
    aware if they took down the new ceiling and filled in the other hole. I did not stay
    there and very quickly the plasterboard went up and in that last day, they installed
    new ceiling lights in the newly erected plasterboard, without me seeing that they
    had secured that hole). This undermines confidence that other holes have been blocked.
  • 5. We provided 100 bags of anti-rodent poison so that each new light could have a
    bag alongside it, so that if a rodent got in it would probably eat it. Photo 20 shows you
    20 boxes with 4 bags in each. That means that in about 14 separate areas in the top
    floor, bedroom floor, ground floor and cellar that they had put down only 20 bags,
    when more than 20 new ceiling lights had been installed. Protection of wiring can
    also be carried by poison as well as by trunking.

Specifics:

  • 6. There are two holes in the kitchen wall above the door from the hall with bundles
    of wire, none of which is sheathed - see photos 16, 17, 18, 37, 38, 39, 96, 97 shows
    exposed wires of brown, blue and bare for modern up to date wiring), 98, 99, 100 and
    101. Jason said this was work in progress.
  • 7. In the hall, close to the kitchen door, there is a switch on the wall between the
    lounge and the kitchen. The wire from that switch goes into the void by the cellar door
    with no obvious protection - see photos 103, 104, 105-111. We know that these void
    areas are vulnerable to attack.
  • 8. There is a hole in the ceiling under the stairs with a bundle of wires including data
    wires which goes to the cellar stairs without protection - see photo 112.
  • 9. At the bottom of the cellar stairs, there are wires - see photos 116 and 117 going to
    a junction box in the ceiling where new wires seem to be connected to old wires and
    new lights - see photos 118, 60, 61 and 62. Areas of this are not protected, but we were
    told the cellar was finished.
  • 10. In the cellar, there are new power sockets with wire in plastic conduit - see photos
    64, 65, 66, 119, 120, 123,124 but again, so is it all protected. ??? Photos 120, 121 and
    122 show that the wire comes out of the white plastic trunking and is then tacked to the
    wall round the corner before it goes up into the ceiling and probably into the acoustic
    wall built in the Dining room in Photo 73 without any trunking.
  • 11. In the hall, there are wires in the wall by the dining room that are not protected.???
    Would these not be plastered over??? See photos 138, 139 and 140. Yes they might well
    be plastered over, but these are in air gap behind the plaster so could be attacked by
    rodents, unlike the cable in the wall in Photo 103 which would be plastered over, but the
    cable above the ceiling would not be in photo 103. In looking closely at photo 139 the
    conductor colours are brown, black and grey, which is Three-Phase wiring. Why has
    new single phase and three phase wiring been used? Since “household wiring does
    not usually use three-phase supplies”.
  • 12. On the main stairs, middle landing, there are wires not protected. See A in Questions
    concerning electrics.
  • 13. Front bedroom new stud wall. Lights don’t appear to have any protection. No
    insulation visible
  • 14. Ditto back bedroom In addition - see photos 74, 75 and 76, there is a light hanging
    from the ceiling with some codex, but also a length of unprotected wire see 1 above.
  • 15. In the cloakroom, we are not sure if any of these wires go towards the second fuse
    box. No evidence of protection. New Fuse box 2 seems to have only the power from one
    socket downstairs in the hall on the old fuse board see section E on Questions concerning
    electrics. Is there any wiring between new fuse box 1 and new fuse box 2? If not then
    part of the new ceiling in the dining room will have to be taken down to accommodate this.
  • 16. Given findings regarding insulation behind new walls see photo 73, is the dining room
    new wall sound insulated?
  • 17. Also in the dining room, the wire for the pendant light (a 6 candle-shaped bulb
    candelabra) doesn’t feel as if it has codex round it - see photo 133.
  • 18. Also there is wire for a light on the other side of the dining-room door to the gap
    between the new ceiling and the wall, which seems to be unprotected - see photo 137."

"Questions concerning electrics with its photos

  • A. There are cables in the cloakroom with no obvious protection at the moment. We
    are not clear where they go and if they are protected from ceiling upwards. See photos
    10, 11, 28, 29, 31, 125 and 126. Photo 141 shows the bottom landing at the top of the
    stairs from the ground floor to the bedroom floor. It then shows the middle landing,
    the step up to the landing outside the dormer bedroom at the top of the picture. There
    is another step to the left to the stairs from the bedroom landing to the library/ study/ tank
    room of the top storey. When the carpet is removed and floor-boarding removed of the
    middle landing as shown in photos 145 and 146 one sees unprotected new data wire
    and grey cables in photo 145, these unprotected grey wires continue on to photo 146
    and are under a coiled bundle of grey wire and data cable as shown in photo 147. This
    wire bundle continues to the kitchen as shown in photos 16, 17, 18, 37, 38, 39, 95, 96,
    97, 98, 99, 100 and 101. Photo 102 shows the view from the kitchen along the hall to
    the front door, passing the lounge door on the right and the cellar door on the left, then
    the stairs to the bedroom floor on the left with the door to the dining room on the left
    before coming to the door to the left for the cloakroom where the old fuse box is and
    new fuse box 1, and then finally to the front door. This bundle of new cables in photo
    145 continues towards the front door and might be partly protected between photo
    145 of the middle landing and when it comes out into the cloakroom. Are all these cables
    trunked? Photos 50-55 attempt to show what is inside this new ceiling space. There are
    2 new data cables coming out of metal codex trunking, they are taped together, then they
    split up and each wire goes into another metal codex trunking, but between these 3 bits of
    codex trunking these 2 data cables are unprotected.
    When you look at photo 151 you will notice 3 cables have been laid over the top of the joist
    on the left hand side by chiselling a channel in the top of that joist, The bundle of new
    grey wires has been put through a new hole bored in the same joist. Where the original
    floorboard of the old step under these new joists were installed perhaps in 1984, there is
    a missing floorboard. The 2 sets of wire put into the joist and weakening it could both have
    been put into this missing floorboard hole. Has this weakened the landing so that a heavy
    person going down the stairs could break this joist?
  • B. The new acoustic wall see photo 132 in the dining room sounds hollow and may not be
    insulated, which we had requested.
  • C. There is a wire in the ceiling for a pendant light in the dining room; no evidence that it is
    encased in codex when it is wiggled see photo 133, so is the rest of the wiring in that ceiling
    trunked?
  • D. There are holes in the dining room wall below the new ceiling (installed because the
    old ceiling was old lath and plaster). The wires in the holes are not protected - see photos 40-47.
  • E. An extension cable is plugged into a power socket in the hall. This goes into the front
    bedroom from the stairs and is joined to a grey wire installed by the electricians and is
    connected to the new fuse box 2 in the wardrobe. The whole of the power supply for the
    attic and first floor including all lights and sockets and the hot water timer etc all seem to rely
    on this one extension cable. Is this load safe?
  • F. Are they on the same circuit as the lead from the power socket in the cloakroom to be the
    supply to new fuse box 1 (See photo 28) which we were told supplies power to the cellar,
    dining room and hall? If those 2 power sockets in the old wiring are on the same MCB in the
    old fuse board, is that safe?
  • G. There is wire from the new fuse box in the cloakroom going through a hole in the wall, but
    they do not seem to go into the second fuse box, so where do they go? To the kitchen and the
    rest of the ground floor and cellar?
  • H. Is the power and lighting for Chris’s study and the ironing room on the old circuit and fuse
    box?
  • I. Looking at photos 156, 157 and 158 at the 4 light dimmer switches beside the entry door
    and inside the lounge we find that the wires are blue, red, green/yellow (is the green/yellow
    the covering of the wire or trunking?) does this mean that the live of the old fusebox has
    been put with the neutral of the new system? If so, is it unsafe to mix 2 electrical systems
    together for a potential 4 separate light system of which 2 circuits have been installed and
    are working? 
The Conductor Colours of current IEC is green/yellow for protective earth, blue for neutral
    and brown for single phase live.Three Phase live is brown for L1, black for L2 and grey for
    L3. “Household wiring does not usually use three-phase supplies and the clash only occurs
    in three-phase systems. Wiring to the old standard can be detected by use of a red wire.
    The new standard colour code does not use red. Where new wiring is mixed with old, cables
    must be clearly marked to prevent interchange of phase and neutral.” from
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electrical_wiring_in_the_United_Kingdom.
  • J. Is it usually safe to mix single phase wiring with three-phase wiring and connect both to
    Pre-2004 IEE Wired fuseboard? Unless we look at the conductor colours on each switch,
    light and power socket fitted, we will not now whether it is the old wiring, new single phase or
    new three-phase?
  • K. A new double power socket was installed in the back bedroom between the windows and
    the bedroom cupboard. The old power socket was taken out, the old wires to it cut off and
    then when the electrical work was completed in that room for the ceiling lights and power
    sockets, leaving the wall light wires exposed through the newly created insulation? Wall, the
    insulation wall was plastered, the new rectangular section of plasterboard in the ceiling from
    one end to the other covering where they had cut out that section to put the new wiring in
    and the holes where the old power sockets was plastered. The power for the power sockets
    in Chris’s study went off. I was told by the plasterer that once the plaster had dried then it
    would be okay within 30 minutes. 4 hours later the electricity to the study was still not on.
    The electricians fiddled and the power came back on. When you look at photo 28, there is a
    white strip over a circuit breaker on the old fuse board and that fuse is off. Why? Is it safe
    to apply wet plaster to live ends of wire?
    If you look at photos 138-140 there is a wire that comes out of the bottom hole and up to the
    second hole where it is bent into the hole and pushed down. When you pull it out, its end is
    unprotected. In the second hole is a cut wire with red and black conductor colours. Is that
    old wire still connected to the old fuse box and live? And it has a new wire which could be
    live pushed past it, which is in contact between its grey external cover. Is this safe?
  • L. If you look at photo 31, you will see an unprotected cable coming from the new fuse
    board 1 up to the metal codex in the ceiling and another unprotected cable coming from
    that same codex to join the bundle of wires in the hole on the left. 3 other unprotected cables
    come out above of new fusebox number 1 loop over and into the area screened by the
    plywood and loop up to join the bundle of wires in the hole on the left. Are these the 3 cables
    that go to the kitchen? What are the 5 cables coming down from the hole connected to, since
    they are not connected to either fuse board or power socket in the room - are they 5 red herrings?
  • M. If you look at photo 28, then there is writing under each of the MCB’s to indicate what
    circuit that fuses. There are no markings on the new fuse board 1. Is that safe so that if
    an mcb blows that we will not know where the problem is? Is that why when the electricians
    came to take their tools away on Saturday 20 March at 8:30am, that they wanted to put the
    cover on this fusebox number 1, so that we would not know what each fuse serviced because
    there was nothing to tell the client?
  • N. From the above, we do know if there has been more than 2 re-uses of old wire in the
    new wiring and looking at the dimmer switches in the lounge, that if the old fuse box is
    disconnected, then there will be no live wires to that circuit. Is there any safe new wiring
    in the house and is the old wire left in a safe condition instead of simply being cut off?

"Re-wire narrative with its photos

Poor advice and professional errors

The brief was to re-wire our home following an infestation of rodents which had damaged wiring
and caused lights to fail. This had happened once before and so preventing it happening again was
an absolute priority. We relied upon the professional expertise of the contractor that this could be
achieved using cable cladding – Cobex. There was no mention of the lights being left vulnerable
between the fitting and the transformer, but this is obviously the case now we can see how the
fittings are attached. (Photo 78 Light hanging in back bedroom). If we had known this in advance,
we may have had second thoughts, given the high cost quoted. No alternative solutions were
suggested by Mr Manderson.
We asked that rodent poison be placed throughout the cavities where wires were run and by each
light, for added protection and we supplied this. Despite reassurances that this had been done, the
quantity left from the order suggests this is not the case, because only 20 bags have been used
despite far more than 20 lights having been fitted.
We also asked that any areas which could not be protected by Cobex should be blocked with wire
wool fixed into place with expanding foam. We agreed to supply this material too, but again, it is
clear that not much has been used.
Work started 19th January and was estimated to take 4 to 5 weeks. Mr Mandserson did not attend
the week it snowed; he had a day off due to tooth pain, and approximately 9 other days when he
has been elsewhere or undertaking parenting duties. I asked him not to return on the night of
17th March, because we were concerned that the work was not being done in accordance with our
There has been no discussion with us regarding choice of fittings save in the most general terms,
ie whether we wanted recessed lights. As some of our ceilings are relatively low, this is what we
have had before and pendant lights would not be practical, so we agreed to recessed LED’s.
We understand that the light switch for the hall by the lounge door should have a sheath round it,
but it does not. The wires from this switch would be plastered in, but go into the void outside the
kitchen door. There is no obvious protection (phots 118, 60, 61 and 62), but this void is vulnerable
from past experience. Photos 103-111. The light switch by the office door on the second floor
should also have had a sheath.
In the ironing annex next to the lounge, there is an earth wire not affixed to anything, which we
understand should be terminated to something to make it safe..
There is a circuit protector on the system, but given the brief, we have been advised that best
practice recommendation would be for and AFD on each connection. We understand that this would
be expensive, but would have minimised risk and should have been discussed with us to make a
choice.
We have made staged payments, but not received any safety certificates.
In the hall, Photos 50-55 attempt to show what is inside the new ceiling space. The data cables
are partly trunked, but there are sizable gaps. Why wasn’t armoured data cable used, which would
have solved the problem?
We already had smoke alarms (both perfectly visible) which were allowed for in the original quote.
The contractor then credited their cost back. They were installed with our burglar alarm system
which is wireless, save for a hard wiring from the control panel up through the front bedroom to the
outside bell. We understand that there may be an issue with this from a regulatory point of view.
This was not drawn to our attention.
As the contractor kept setting off the alarms, we opted to have them all disabled for the duration of
the work, but we do not know whether the wires to the control panel have been interfered with.

Billing issues
Chris requested the fixing of new stud walls, in the rear bedroom for heat insulation, in the front
bedroom for sound insulation and in the dining room for sound insulation. These have been fitted
and in the bedrooms, cable runs behind them which does not appear to be sheathed. This may not
be an issue, but we do not know if the holes in the ceiling from which the wires drop down have been
filled in. If this is not the case, rodents would have unfettered access to those cables.
In addition, there does not appear to be any insulation behind the bedroom walls; we can see
some insulation at the bottom of the dining room wall, but it does not seem to extend right up the
wall from a test hole drilled higher up. This omission was raised with the contractor the day they
were put up and he confirmed that he had forgotten. We asked that this be rectified, and reminded
him that it was needed on more than one occasion, but it seems that this was not done. In the
meantime, because we did not realise the issue with insulation and protection of the wires, the
walls have been plastered and painted, so potentially involving us in significant additional cost to
put right.
In addition to the breach of trust, we have paid to have the walls in the bedrooms plastered; we
will have to take the board down, insulate and return the board as well as replastering it again and
decorating the back bedroom.
In the original estimate, each light is costed at £65. This may include an element of labour for
connecting new wires to the fitting, but this is not clear. I have detailed below where fittings
appear to have been re-used, but there has been no obvious credit for this.
The lights in the attic landing, office and one in the library have been re-used. Given how invoices
have been presented, it is difficult to tell, but fittings were quoted for and there is no obvious credit
for them, so potential over-charge of £325
An additional socket had been fitted that was not allowed for in the original estimate, so potential
under payment of £65
Lights in the en-suite quoted for but fittings re-used. One of the existing fittings was faulty and this
was pointed out several times. On the last occasion, Mr Manderson said that he did not know if he
could get a matching fitting. Potential over charge £520.
The sensor in the en-suite bathroom which activates the plinth lights has not been replaced.
Mr Manderson asked me what it was for on the day work was done there (including moving the light
fittings around because the faulty one is in a different place). I explained and he told me it did not
work, but the same evening, I notified him that it did and so it was not necessary to replace it. As
he said he had not noticed the plinth lights and the plinth has clearly not been moved, it is clear
that these have not been replaced. 4 plinth lights and one sensor not supplied but quoted for £265.
Main bathroom lights reused. Fittings quoted £130
Front bedroom ceiling lights re-used £390. £130 has been credited for two lights. Wall light fittings
would have been reused.

Poor workmanship
One of the lights in the back bedroom has been left hanging, demonstrating that a significant length
of the wire is not protected. This has been drawn to the contractors attention.
The lights in the dormer bedroom wardrobe and the front bedroom wardrobe do not work. As these
rooms are marked as complete, we would have expected these to have been checked.
Concern about how wires have been fed through the void exposed by lifting the flooring at the first
floor landing. Why were they not put through the gap left by a missing floor board? This may have
caused a weakness in the floor. Photo 151
The contractor raised concerns about drilling holes into the dining room ceiling because it was lath
and plaster. He mentioned that he had researched it and the dust could carry anthrax if it
contained wool. This was very alarming. It was agreed that a new ceiling could be put up. Once the
batons were in place, Chris questioned whether the fittings they were using would still require
drilling into the old ceiling. The contractor agreed that they would, which would completely defeat
the object of leaving it intact for safety reasons. Double battening was agreed as a way forward.
We do not know if all of the holes in the old ceiling were re-filled. If not, any rodents which get
into the area above the old ceiling will be able to access the new void.
On further consideration of this issue, it might have been possible to turn the batons through 90
degreed, so using them short edge up, but with long screws and avoided the need for double batons.
If Mr Manderson was unhappy about putting in the ceiling, he should have mentioned it and we could
have sourced another tradesperson to do it, but he seemed content to do this work.
There is a wire sticking down from the ceiling in the dining room to re-fix a pendant light; when it is
moved, there is neither noise or resistance to suggest it is in codex within the void. This is of concern.
The same issue arose in the hall, in that much of that ceiling was also lath and plaster. We agreed to
it being replaced. Chris noticed a hole had not been filled in just as it was being covered with new
board. The contractor apologised and asked for the wire wool and expanding foam, which was
provided immediately. We cannot be confident that any other holes have been filled in; certainly
no board was taken down to do so and the whole was covered up very quickly.
It has been pointed out to us since I asked Mr Manderson to leave the site that the fittings chosen
by the contractor will not sit flush with the ceiling because they are too deep. It is clear too that
there is a significant length of wire not protected. We understand now that shorter fittings are
available which would have been more appropriate for our situation, both in terms of what is
left unprotected and also how the lights fit within the new ceiling void. We understood that the
lighting in the hall was finished, so not clear if this would be dealt with.
There is a portion of wire unprotected from the ceiling down to the switch outside the dining
room door.
The same issue arose with the lounge ceiling. Two sizable channels had been cut to allow
wires to be pulled down which revealed lath and plaster. (Photo 23) Given what Mr Manderson
had said about possible toxicity, it was agreed that a new ceiling would be installed. As
this was being done, Chris again pointed out that new board was being put up without the holes
being filled in. Again, the contractor apologised and he was reminded that wire wool and foam
were provided. Given the speed at which the new board was fixed, we cannot be confident
that holes have not been left which would give easy access for rodents from above the old
ceiling down into the new void.
In the cellar, photos 116 and 117 show old wires connected to new lights. (photos 118, and
60 to 62) This is surprising. These wires are not protected. In addition, there are sockets
with plastic trunking tacked to the wall (photo 120-122), leading up into the ceiling, possibly
into the new wall in the dining room. There is no evidence these wires are protected. (photo 73).
Why was old wiring reused?
There are bundles of wire from the new fuse box in the cloakroom which seem not to be
connected to the new fuse box in the bedroom. It is difficult to see where these wires go and
establish if they are protected.
All of the power to the outside lights has been disconnected, but as we had not agreed a new
scheme for outside, we wonder why.
Apart from the kitchen, the power in the rest of the house relies on 2 extension cables and plugs,
one for power and lighting on the top 2 floors and one for the ground floor and cellar. This
seems to risk overloading. We are being cautious but have not received any warning about
loading the system.

Was this work necessary?

Mr Manderson said he would fit two fuse boxes, one in the cloakroom and one he has positioned
in the front bedroom wardrobe. We are not sure why this was necessary, but it has certainly
been costly. And the contractors who have been to the site subsequently agreed that one fuse
box would have been quite adequate. One of the boxes is labled, but the other one is not.
We appreciate that there is still work to do, particularly in terms of the kitchen, but we wonder
if Mr Manderson would have been able to recall accurately what each fuse is, even if he had
completed the work from17th March when I asked him not to return.
We accept that we agreed to the new ceilings, but this was because we were persuaded that t
here was significant risk both the contractors safety and our own because of the structure of the
existing ceiling. We question now whether this was true or simply a way of making the job
easier and more costly."

Neither Napit nor our credit card company were interested in the above. At the end of each of
their complaint forms, they recommend that the offender repairs the damage.

So we employed Taylor Electrical Limited to produce the following report on 11.07.2021:-
