back in the day we used to always remove ourselfs on jobs, but after many potencuail and actual problems always state to get a plumber in to to it if they want it skimmed behind. water troubles can get expensive , f00k that.
for future referance, wind sends it off like f00k! lol
this morning got in at 7 coz i was worried and it was borderline ok, come up good but fking took some scraping1
i put on the rest tooo at around 11ish and the sun come out and hit about 14 degrees! worried for that lot now :$ think i...
we ended up using 32 bags of top coat on the flank this morning, but i found at end of the day some areas had started to hairline crack, like shrinkage ones, you know what you get if you add too much lime to s/c, those sort..... also the wind didnt give me much time to go back and close it in...
honestly mate, done hundreds just get off all the soot you can with stiff brush, wet it down and scrubb it too, then just pva it bout 50/50 and hardwall/render over.... never had a bleed yet. 15 year in game
so i finaly got all the prep done!!! after starting the job last monday!!
right nightmare, had to lay off the other guys due to shite weather and plod on myself getting it preped, took 2 days this week just to do the main flank , by myself on 3 levels..... arrrhhh!
but question please guys...
hmmm, over here iv done hardwall or sand cement, it will most likely crack ming over there to shrinkage.... youd have to leave it for weeks to help it not.
as KK says, wet blocks in or even pva to aid with fast curinging...goes without saying.
