Listen to daddy brown.
Use a stone or the toe of an old trowel to get rid of the worst lines and then mix yourself a wet slurry mix of basecoat and apply to the wall as tight as you can putting more pressure on the heel of the trowel so you are leaving no lines.
Any lines you have left just...
Can anyone recommend where to buy DECENT 180mm fixings with metal pins?.
Really fed up using the crap that Parex, Mapei and the like specify as notated how well you drill the hole they rarely sit flat to the wall.
The best ones I have used are the Marmorit fixings but you...
I used stainless 15mm stop bead as they were for my fireplace. Just had a woodburner fitted with a stainless flue, handles etc so wanted to see an edge of a stainless bead against the slate.
Yeah maybe I need to go back to college you cheeky cont lol.
Having just fitted stainless stop end beads in my front room then floating out with hardwall and skimming I see on the web it says not to use stainless beading when using gypsum.
Any ideas why?.
Have a very small refurb Parex Ewi job which is a hard to treat rendered and painted house. I had the lads stick the eps yesterday with maite as an adhesive and this morning the whole lot has popped off the wall.
Any ideas lads?
You are missing something.
Of course I send the damaged sheets back and request replacement but this slows the job down as it takes a week at least for them to sort it. What I really want is for the manufacture to give me a satisfactory reason to why I am getting more and more damaged sheets...
Recently I have been having lots of what looks like fire damaged Ewi sheets within the sealed packs being delivered by my supplier.
At first it was just the odd sheet here and there but the last order there was quite a bit.
I have sent an email to kaymetzler and to my...
I have a large job coming up where the client wants Parex monerex gm sponge finished.
I have scraped back plenty of this product but not sponged finished any.
I would appreciate any tips from anyone who has sprayed and sponged finished this product.
You'll not catch richy brown banging out ewi for Â£17m2.
I'm far too slow and fussy.
When I walk away from a job i make sure the client is delighted, the job is immaculate and fitted to spec and I'm happy to send future clients there to see our work and speak to the owner of the house to get...
So what would happen from a warranty point of view Ade. British gas told this fella he would have a 25year warranty. If the job fails and they find out it had failed due to poor prep work who is liable??? The polish subbie who is now back home? The main contractor who supposedly instructed the...
If like your views and opinions on this please.
I have priced a few ewi jobs recently and have lost them to the likes of British gas etc who are part funding the work so the customer THINKS they are getting a bargain.
The last job I lost involved removing and replacing...
I ******* hate geka fittings and the wanky fittings on the material hose.
They are lovely when it's warm and everything is clean but add cold hands and those wank geka fittings make me want to have a stroke and get a grain of sand on one of the lever cams on the material hose and it'll refuse...
