Not sure this is the right place.
Today A british gas engineer came to my house to install air
ventilation. when he drill a hole on my wall, (there is a gas pipe in
the wall), he cut through the pipe. Obvouisly he will fix it, but he
plan to run the new pipe from the outside of the house, I am a bit
What can I do about it? thx
I agree with you totally on aesthetics (and convenience to the light
fingered) but at the same time I have noticed that many new builds in our
area, particularly blocks of flats, do have the gas supplies running up the
outside of the building. I assumed this was to reduce the amount of piping
inside and reduce the risk of build up of gas, and subsequent loud bang,
caused by leaks at joints etc.
THe most I concerned is the value of the house, I know some ppl will
not buy house with pipe at outside.
Should I ask BG has to install the new pipe under the floor? (That may
involves take out part of old floor, add new ones,), BG probabaly
reluctant to do it.
Should I insist that? If they don't do it, should I suit them?
or ask my house insurance to take care, (if they cover).
I was a first buyer, know nothing about house, any suggstion is
