    Stencilled Concrete

    Thanks for the replies. Am going to try to find out if covered under the builder's warranty and see what happens.... :) Checked my documents and looks like BC registered in 2004 so I might just scrape in if it is a 5 year warranty. Would still be interested in how to remove it though.

    Seeking Strata approval for tiling?

    Tiling I have a single level townhouse with 2 shared walls and have tiling in all of the living areas and only the bedrooms carpeted and to be honest because you don't have anyone above/below you, you don't hear the neighbours at all and I assume that their units are the same as mine.
