In January 2021, the government announced the creation of a new national construction products regulator. The primary responsibility of the regulator is to ensure homes in the UK are constructed using 'safe' materials.
The regulator will have the power to remove any product that represents a significant safety risk and to prosecute companies that break the rules.

We have moved home and the amount of work we have to do is daunting. Having you both rabbiting on in the background is making the work so much easier and pleasanter.
I love it when you talk about mistakes and struggles... we are living the ‘dream’ here!!
Love your work Roger and Robin and now this podcast is fantastic. So nice to just hear simple chat, putting the world the rights and discussing the trades. It’s like being down the pub with you.
Can’t go back further than episode 5 for some reason on iPhone podcasts app...
Really appreciate this podcast and YouTube channel. I’m an electrician by trade but am fixing my own house up and have found the plumbing and joinery videos have really helped me. Sometimes it’s hard to know/find out what the best way of doing something is, your videos and information make it a lot easier. Thanks
