Over the last 25 years or so I've owned four houses which were in various states of disrepair and (with my wife) have renovated them all. As well as general painting and decorating I've fitted underfloor heating, renovated sash windows, fitted a wet zone shower, fitted two kitchens and three bathrooms as well as building cupboards, laying patios, insulating and boarding a loft and other jobs too numerous to mention.

comment Should tiles of “stones” be removed from the backing?
@JasonYoung - the fact that there is variation with some OK and others not should be enough to allow you to discuss the work. It all comes down to how reasonable you and the tiler are willing to be - something we can't help you with here.

comment How to tell if a house is equipped for a gas stove
A lot will depend on the construction of the house. Can you give more details on your location and what you know about how the house is built.

comment How can I remove faux brick from a kitchen wall?
How well are they attached? The better the finish the more likely you are to damage the wall etc.
