    Going it Alone...

    Bit of advice, may sound obvious but work out what percentage of your weekly income is taken up by van costs, insurance etc. otherwise you may think you're earning enough but in reality it's getting gobbled up with costs.

    Plastering a concrete ceiling- need advice

    I'd agree with the batten and board plan but if you are determined to skim straight on use blue grit/WBA or bondit instead of pva.

    Foil backed plasterboard.

    Need a sh*t ton of this for my loft conversion. Where's best bet to buy from and what price should I expect to pay? Cheers guys

    General question on all of these flexi trowels. Do you actually achieve a better finish or is it just easier to finish with? Compared to a mt for example.

    Black stains on wood after a splash->how to clean it?

    Looks like oiled veneer oak doors mate? Defo not the sort of thing u want plaster on so in future cover up. Lacquered woods are sealed so comes off easier. You could sand them but will have to re oil after.

    Best Patching Plaster

    Pva and multi finish is what I do but I'd advise you to talk them into skimming the whole wall. I normally say a patch will be seen if you know it's there and the price difference won't be much by the time you've got there, set up etc.
