    Vitcas heat plaster

    Has anyone ever had skim come off around a stove because of the heat? I know it's always said it will blow the skim but I've personally never heard of it happening or seen it so just curious to hear from others.

    Tax returns

    That's the problem there isn't enough reward in working hard when you can do well not working. I would hate to see people struggle but the way it is at the minute the working man is not much better of than the man that can play the system. Plus the people that aren't fit to work don't get much...

    Neck pain

    I'm 32 and had pains from the plastering for the first time this year. A few of the lads I work with that are 40+ are killed with back and shoulder pain. It is a seriously tough job on the body! Then you have some people saying plasterers were charging too much money at one time! I think any...

    north,south,east,west and in between!

    I think it will be up to £4.50 again. The firm we are with are happy enough to pay £3.50 at the minute so they must be getting better rates than a year ago. It's supply and demand and if the demand keeps going up so will the prices. I don't think you could get paid to much for this game!!

    Busy year for us. £3.50 m2 skim only in Belfast. The worst it ever was, was £2.50 so good to see it up. Still a good bit off the £4.50 it was 8 years ago tho!!

    Shortage of Plasterers.

    Things are getting better here for sure. Work and rates are on the rise. It's well due!

    Sika waterproof

    This would be my choice also. SBR is a good product but but needs to used correctly at least with the rendaid it is more straight forward.

    Site Plasterers required for contracts in North West and nationwide

    So if someone was offering skimming at £1 m2 you think no-one should say anything?
