    What like you don't need Pva or maybe you do we suggest doing a trial panel first before you commit to buying too much, if unsuitable you obviously don't know what your doing so ring a certified plasterer from our list.

    Don't remember being that low, only for a local builder we used to do float & set skimming board & screeding floors for £ 2 a yard without taking windows/ doors out cos he did'nt like measuring and multiples of 2 was easy to add up.

    Uni failure

    BG are on a winner, they charge double for a load of crap, then when it falls off you get to use another of there crap products to put it right. 2 sales for the price of 3.

    How flat & level should it be?

    Depends, If your paying top money for a perfect job it should be straight and plumb.
