    That why your mug of tea and bowl of cereal every morning drink your brew and milk? (Baked clay) look mate believe in rising damp I’ve spent most my life treating it. I just don’t think everyone knows the facts

    9 inch wall

    Clay (waterproof) shaped and naked into a brick is waterproof by design. Blue engineering brick is a much denser tighter packed brick. Used as a dpc moons ago but all bricks are technically designed as waterproof

    9 inch wall

    No I don’t Usually because of wrong plaster, bonding/browning. I personally believe in rising damp but I also know not every situation is either or and know how to treat it

    9 inch wall

    Rising damp is a bit of a myth. Cold condenses on the lowest part of the wall, giving evidence to the myth of rising damp. You need to raise the thermal temperature of the wall with either thermal boards or limelite or sand and cement with waterproofed to stop it gathering

    9 inch wall

    Bricks are waterproof by design mate, limelite or waterproof s/c is another barrier from your bricks. Then if you water repellant on top of that, rain will be no issue

    Plastterers for beck row suffolk

    To be honest I’d love to know this out of pure amazement that you can do that. Not doubting you either. How do you mix it up, rolling sets or one big mix? If one big one how on earth has it not set in bucket/spot board by time your getting close to the end. You animal @algeeman and @Gibbo and...

    Newbie Here!

    Get a speedskim will be your best friend. Just the plastic blade. Pva is best to skim when dry anyways but if it’s your friend maybe use grit that kills some more suction. First coat, speedskim fresh second speedskim, speedskim again then trowel as you wish. Good luck pal

    Limelite plaster

    Wonder why they’ve specced one coat, didn’t know you could get that in full size bags either

    Outstanding progress

    We did, didn’t even bother with dust sheets as it’d just make them vile. Luckily wasn’t much in the kitchen really. It’s a rental so was bits everywhere in bottom flat. Bedroom was disgusting aswell

    What am I worth

    How much do you want? Your obviously not happy with 40 which is understandable but there’s a lot your not telling us. Age, own tools, your on your first year, you’d just be at college if it wasn’t for your relative. You’ve gotta pay your dues a lot at first. You was probably costing him more...

    Beast of a hop up.

    That looks a top bit of kit, how much was that mate? Any chance of putting a link up for it

    Does or has anyone used the speedskim with the metal edge blade? What did you think?

    I don’t like my metal edge one really, tiger stripes galore off it. I like my plastic one for good flatten. Wouldn’t recommend

    Help on this issue

    If it’s good enough for cellars with ground water pressure it’s gonna piss an above ground chimney breast. I would say it’s the dabs still drying get a dehumidifier in there.

    dot and dab onto blockwork ( Porfix)

    Surely stud work in front of the blocks with a sheet of ply then board would be an easier solution or just render the wall and leave off the boards completely?

    ox speedskim

    I like my 1200 for first flatten, wouldn’t really say it gets used after that. I got the 600 stainless steel one and hate it. It’s meant for finishing. Looks shite when you run it over. Tiger stripes everywhere. Have get the trowel out anyways so stays in the van

    s**t gear again

    That’s how we do it mate, 2 coats. Get it with the sponge fairly quick don’t need leave it for ages. Wet your sponge spray your wall and float. Then turn round and speedskim/trowel. One more after that. Done

    s**t gear again
