Anyone got recommendations for dealing with mould on a garden shed roof. Im positive its not leaking, I think the moisture was in the wood at the time of building. I've seen anti mould paint, should I just go ahead and give the roof a coat or would there be anything else needed before this?

Roof or celing majestic? I've used anti mould paint on a shed ceiling (hardwood) before, good job. Haven't had to reapply in over a year

Ceiling, what brand did you go for?

This is what I used, on the recommendation of a builder. Says exterior, but worked a treat, and still is.

Just got a new washing machine (still have the older one), the newer one has a bigger capacity and after the first wash the waste water couldn't get away quick enough and pished out all over the place. Waste pipe on new washer is 1.5 in and 1in in the old one.

Any idea what can be done? Other than put the old ones back in

Anyone here ever hire a mini digger to do a small job even though they ve never used one before?
Just wondering are they hard to get onto ?
Thinking of going for it, hiring one and mess about with the controls , get the  hang of it and get the small job done by the end of the day

Once you've been on it for 10 mins you'll be flying.
