Long ago and far away there was a baker. Let's call him Bob. Bob the baker noticed how much money was in property at the time so it wasn't long before his van read Bob the baker Builder.
Thing is, Bob hadn't done any training, or even watched any YouTube videos because it wasn't around then...
I do wonder what goes on in people's (@Casper ) heads when they take shiyt like this on. I mean, you get better but stretching g yourself a bit sometimes, or chewing g your lip and hoping for the best but jeez. To just run at it without a clue must take some balls.
Looks very much as though they've rendered over drilled holes without any sort of scrim/reinforcement and it came unstuck.
Most likely the plasterer didn't know and maybe even the company didn't know to specify that given that it took years to come out.
Every day a school day.
What's your number?
