    Is this acceptable finish? Work is done, but not sure about quality

    I was a newbie like you but the good people here have welcomed me with open arms and and I feel I am part of the clique now. I recently had half of my house replastered and though it wasn't as bad as your situation, it wasn't up to our standard The experts here deemed it was rough. So I...

    Hi all

    I know Jack s**t about plastering but I might give it a go. Will probably do a better job than most of the chancers :P

    Hello all

    After getting some helpful advice, I've decided to stay here and say hello to the wider audience... Hello..

    Is this acceptable?

    You would add hardwall in to the cavity as well or you would fil it with form? If it's the former, you are not worried about Hardwall being close to the outside elements? I think the end of the cavity is the other other side of the door frame.

    Is this acceptable?

    Fellas, I've found another plasterer. He said he can fill it up with Hardwall and reskim. On his profile on the website, it says he has qualifications, he's been there for over 10 years and has loads of good reviews. He wants £200 which I think is a fair price? Question. Should the backing...

    The decorator has done excellent work to be fair. Even though he recommended the guy (basically said he's worked with him in other projects and he's OK) he said he was happy for to go with any plasterer. I just think it's not fair if he has to do all the work to sort out the plasterer's mess...

    Is this acceptable?

    The bricks look dry to me however it is right next to the front door frame. so wall might be getting a lot of moisture. Maybe I was exaggerating when I said it was like a paste, OK not that wet but it wasn't dry/hard. Didn't notice any patches when the lining paper was there and don't remember...

    Is this acceptable?

    So I've removed all the bonding (some of it was very wet, like a paste) and now it's back to the bricks. Area is about 150cm x 40cm. Needs to have Hardwall or Limitelite as the backing plaster and then reskim up to the rest of the wall. I'm thinking it's less than a half a day's work. What...

    Is this acceptable?

    Bit fussy? Jesus, I just want a decent job. Not expecting a perfect job (we are aware the old walls aren's straight) but there shouldn't be noticeable bulging in corners. And not paying £750 buddy :p We are going to have to give the decorator more money to straighten some of the crappy...

    Is this acceptable?

    So here's an update. The guy game today and he tried to bullshit me again and I called him out, there was an argument and he left. Also saw one of his guys emptying the bucket with dirty water in to the toilet after cleaing trowels and stuff. Don't think we'll have them in our house again...
