    NEW YEAR NEW IDEA.

    I think that’s a valid point, if there’s how many thousand members on the forum the law of averages says there must be one or two that are properly sick in the head. I’d never put pictures of my girls on here doesn’t matter how proud I am of them I just don’t want pictures of them on the...

    That’s weird isn’t it? Go to the effort of putting a float on it but not key the surface? Obviously they don’t like the scratch in the surface taking more plaster to skim over.

    I like a devil scratch. Run the float over and press the backing coat it in a bit, knock off any small high spots and get the key.

    Perseverance John! Refina are quality trowels I’m sure if you give it a fair trial it will be a decent trowel.

    There’s nothing more thrilling than buying a new trowel! It’s more than just a tool, it’s a loyal companion for years.

    Ok so you’ve floated your wall with waterproof in it and left it to cure for a few days minimum, does it need Pva to skim over to control suction and create a bond? Or skim straight over because the waterproof will slow the suction and the devil scratch creates a key?

    I’d be seriously worried if someone would float that depth in one coat! I think you’re on the wind up again ;) 27mm lol. What I meant was with hardwall you coat the blocks then go over it again and rule off. Do people do the same for sand cement etc?

    Yeah I used to do insurance work and it was a hack off up to 1.2 high and float the bottom half and patch in. Lazy really but that’s what the surveyors would price for.

    I might be doing some work for a damp proofing company and although the technique of floating isn’t a problem or confusing my understanding of sand cement internal work is poor. With the drying times and additives etc? I’ll most likely be working off a spec but doesn’t harm to know what’s right...

    I Damp proofing aswell, plenty of places with damp problems. Definitely better materials to use but not always an option.
