Services Offered/Wanted

Property Services: SpanishRoofTops, see poster for info/contacts. Simon, Nerja.

Wanted: Marble floor polishing and glass curtain repair. Has anyone cracked the longstanding problem of getting a lasting shine on marble floors? There used to be people offering this service but apparently not any more (maybe because it can’t be done?!). Also is there anyone out there who can carry out a minor repair/service on glass curtains? Please respond via email or text/phone. Liz +447880717427 ; lizmcgettigan@hotmail.co.uk

Wanted: Interior doors installer. We are considering having new interior doors fitted. We have got a quote from a company called Puertas Chica in Torre del Mar (near the Police Station). Just wondered if anybody had any feedback about them? Also, do you know of any other “door” shops? Reply to Carole, carolemhart@yahoo.com

Wanted: Septic tank info. Our new neighbor has recently had installed a tank very near to our property and the stench is vile they are not here all the time but the tank is mostly above ground and the sun shines on all day. Should it be below ground? How far away from our fence line should it be and should the “exhaust pipe exposed to the air? Can any one help with these questions please. It was installed by a local property seller/builder.
