    Remove the boards you f**k*d up and replace them, meshing new boards is a joke and you already sound like a cock.

    Glancing / critical lighting or plastering issue?

    Sunlight is in the range of 100000 lumens on a wall and a 100watt led worklight is around 10000 so judging a wall with sunlight at a severe angle is not fair and realistic!

    Danny will have to rename to "Is this acceptable plastering forum"

    Is this acceptable finish? Work is done, but not sure about quality

    Mark up

    Of course they do, if bg put the price up the merchants pass it on so the cost goes up. So your saying bg haven't put there prices up ever? and its just the merchants being greedy!

    Is this acceptable finish? Work is done, but not sure about quality

    Seems to be the normal standard of finish now, so woodchip paper may be the best option!!

    Is this acceptable?

    Being serious for a moment, do you have a damp issue, bonding should not go to paste!

    Is this acceptable?

    £749 :)

    Is this acceptable?

    As you've got £750 to finish the job I'd do it but unfortunately your a bit fussy ;)

    Is this acceptable?

    Can you use multi finish on limelight? Thought the idea of not using bonding/hardwall is because of the gypsum drawing the damp
  25. S

    Is this acceptable?

    Theres many on here would be more experienced than me in that type of work but I dont think hardwall would be any better than bonding from a damp point of view

    Is this acceptable?

    You shouldn't have to tell him anything, if he's anygood at all he'll apologise for his mens work, know how to put it right and do it. Plasterers dont leave bad work, theres no point as it takes the same time and effort to do good or bad. Chancers leave bad work because they dont know any...

    Is this acceptable?

    The issue is working around picture rails, architrave etc. Not insurmountable for the right price but I'd rather do more straightforward work for an easier life.

    Is this acceptable?

    Is everyone’s phones still ringing?

    Dont get me wrong. I've earnt well, spent well and drank my fair share but have also realised after many years, nice things need to be replaced again and again and life ticks along quite happily without spending loads.

    Is everyone’s phones still ringing?

    I did 4 small jobs last year, nothing booked in for this year so far, Just how I like it Worked on sites for years chasing money. Finally realised you dont need the big money. Just learn not to spend. They can stick there £60000 cars and £40000 vans.

    Cheeky b***rds

    Just another chancer. Take pictures of completed work. Then write a letter telling him you've done everything quoted for and give him 7 days to pay or you'll take legal action. Keep copies of quotes and letter/photos Dont dig it up that gives him the upper hand legally even though you might feel...

    Has the plasterer botched this job?

    Unfortunately you've been done. If you were quoted/charged £100 for this crap you've still been done. Good quality plastering needs no prep before painting. Ask for a refund or take him to court, hes not a plasterer!!

    Vans in Manchester

    The big issue is when all towns/cities and even some major roads charge or maybe do not even let any vans that aren't zero emissions in. Then the value of your euro 6 will drop like a stone. Hopefully this wont happen for a while, but its definitely coming. I'm keeping my euro 4 for as long as...

    Euro 6 was only brought out in 2015 and with the big "climate" push coming I think things will be changing very quickly especially around the next election. Push bike and trailer coming soon

    What to do with belongings whilst plastering?

    Pisses me off when people say they cant clean out rooms. What are you going to do when carpets are fitted a carpet fitter will expect all rooms to be clear. Take it outside and burn it, then buy new after its plastered and painted!
