    Skimming over SBR

    Have you tried donkey jizz? Does it work? Do you water it down? Does it have to be tacky like pva or SBR?

    Long time no see

    So much easier than nailing scaffold boards to a banker board, they were a god send. I actually had stomach muscles then, just a load of blubbery fat now.

    That’s thrown another hand grenade into the hawk handboard debate. Now it’s dashing or harling they call it harling in the Shetland isles,

    Angle beads - Sand and cement

    Yes, scratch it then plant your beads on making sure the margin is the same from the sides of your fire place to the edge of the beads then the same distance all the way up between the beads the front face of the beads will have to be worked to the inside edge of the fireplace so you don’t lose...

    Sbr mixed with pva

    No, I call a hawk a hawk, I call a hand board a piece of wood or a thing brickies use to hold their muck when pointing

    I think it’s because they consider your render easier to climb than a brick. Can you hang your coat on your flat? Render?

    Newly painted plaster odour..

    You read so much s**t on here, plastering is pretty damned easy but people insist on making it hard and expensive, I blame all these bloody courses

    Someone going over your work.

    Just tell him to stop f**k**g your work up he is making it more difficult for you as you have to sort out his f**k ups on your work. Failing that drop him where he stands

    boarding over kingspan question please

    It depends how he has fixed the Kingspan and what he has fixed it to. I would either get him to take responsibility for the plasterboard coming away or get him to take the Kingspan off and you do it all. If he takes responsibility you need it in writing

    Has the plasterer botched this job?

    I have never seen anything like that before. I really don’t have a clue where to start but your picture above shows he is not a plasterer, you do not straight join cove, it should be mitred. You have my deepest sympathies try @JessThePlasterer and don’t tell @essexandy i told you that I will...

    Installing new staircase on brick before plastering

    Your plasterer may not know how to float and set a wall, a lot of so called plasterers only know how to scim and so will dot and dab. A solid wall is much better (in my opinion) your chippy can fix it to the wall hopefully not having to pack it out if he does this can be easily sorted with the...

    Newly plastered wall is bumpy.

    Is that one of those hawks that’s about six inches square? I always thought they were for pointing, interesting to here they are called a handboard. Do you use midget trowels as well? Good job your not down south we use a hawk and they are around fourteen inches square imagine you having to use...

    Newly plastered wall is bumpy.

    You are 100% right that is a shocking state and you shouldn’t have to pay for it to be sorted out. The only thing is if this is the best he can do then it won’t get any better. You will either have to live with it or get someone else who is a plasterer not a scimmer or a chancer who says he is a...

    Recommendations using Smarter Surface magnetic plaster

    I think the easiest way to have the different plasters on the same wall would be to use stop beads as a frame or something else to give a break between the two. As for the weight issue I don’t know is the quickest answer but I suspect that no matter how thick you make the magnetic plaster it...

    Mesh or skim ?

    Reboard the ceiling, get him to scim between doors you can fit the toe of the trowel in there it’s no problem and use whatever cove you like. Just make sure that if he over boards he uses long enough screws to go into the joist puts them in the joists and uses enough of them eight to a row on...

    Roughcast rendering improvement

    You could hack it all off then rebuild the outer skin of your house so it’s brickwork. What you have there is pea shingle in sand and cement thrown at the wall, so pretty much concrete, not that easy to rub down with a piece of sand paper. Just paint it.

    Plasterboard on window/door frames - any advice?

    After another look it looks like you had plenty of room for it to be done properly, until he stuck the reveals, tell him to take them off, stick beads up and float and set it, if he uses sand and cement make sure he sticks the beads with it too and doesn’t top coat the same day. Then tell him to...
