    Does this rendering look acceptable?

    Could the reason for the unevenness seen here be because the workers did not take off all the old render like they were supposed to? At the front of the house you can see some of the old render they didn't take off. Or more likely just bad technique? Front of house with old grey render...

    How bad is this plastering?

    Oh I was talking about the exterior rendering, not the inside plastering. Forgot there's two threads. Inside I can't explain-either incredibly incompetent or done on purpose.

    How bad is this plastering?

    We are very bothered. The man won't communicate with us so we are seeking legal advice which is why we won't name and shame just in case it affects things. After it's all over I will name the f#######. Feel free to have a look and you'll see it's not a wind up. I'm still after a definitive...

    Feltham, SW London. Anyone is welcome to come and give us a quote to fix/redo if they are nearby. Or just to have a laugh at the worst job ever.

    Does this rendering look acceptable?

    Hey Thanks for you input, much appreciated. Do you think it's advisable to fill in the cracks with something and wait until good weather to start over? I'm worried about getting damp.

    How bad is this plastering?

    We were living away from the property and our one month son was in and out of hospital very ill. We were not paying attention to what the people we thought we could trust were doing. Do you think it looks like it should be completely redone? The walls they didn't plaster are all smooth.

    Looking for plasterer and renderer

    As have been shafted by a so called builder who's men did outside render and inside plaster(there's a couple of threads on it), we are looking for someone who knows what they are doing to do the whole lot again. We are especially worried the render will lead to damp inside and with two very...

    Actually they did all the work at the same time. I'd seen previous work and it looked fine. He's been in he trade for 40 years and told me he was booked for two years. So we left them to it. You look at the inside in the daylight and it looks ok if you don't know what you are looking for...
