    Boarding ceilings

    I have a hoist but the support frame buckled, still usable, but I find the thing hard work to transport anyway so invested in these, they're expensive for what they are, but they're brilliant, easily attached (I use 60mm drywall screws), very strong, can be used on all domestic jobs as opposed...

    Who's right about this plastering/rendering: my builder or "the one with the attitude problem" ?

    Looking for a new collated screw gun

    Looking for a new collated screw gun

    I'm currently using 60mm collated with dewalt, the length of screw causes a problem at times but they go in effortlessly

    well you got the tape going around the bead, if you cut it off the actual corner, how strong does it hold? or am I missing something silly here?

    Plasterers pregrit

    I find a space beforehand I can prep, not ideal and becoming a bit inconvenient since I've been back doing this full time, but I was comparing to other grit products, I'm not against going back to pva

    Roller v brush

    This room was plastered 4 years ago for £1500, the ceiling lines were beyond repair after coving taken down, plasterer done the coving lol. The plaster came off with the coving on one wall and I scraped the whole thing off easily, another patch had blown so I took that off, could probably have...

    Bonding plaster on to a conservatory brick wall

    Make sure theres a dpc between your door frame and wall, you can't have the inside meeting the outside, if not, expanding foam, then bit of waterproof in s+c, then skim

    Bonding plaster on to a conservatory brick wall
