    Pva advice

    A coat of 1-1sbr will control any suction, put a strong coat of pva on that and skim when tacky...

    Damp rental property

    Are you sure its damp and not condensation pal as the living conditions dont really effect rising damp.. I would always recomend a piv fan... It brings clean air into the property and puts it under postive pressure.....

    Another new trowel from NELA - PREMIUM ELITE

    I have been using the trowel now for the last few days...as usual with nela trowels its well made and comfortable in the hand .its nice and rigid when putting on, the only negative is probably down to personal preference, the blade is too flat for me, a new perma shape has a slight bend in it...
