    Dot and dab marks

    It was my builders idea, the plasterers didn't seem to think anything was wrong with doing it either. I didn't ' hug the first proposal' I read through the responses , spoke with the lads who plastered it and another plasterer that I know and decided that it seemed most likely that it was just...

    Dot and dab marks

    Thanks kitchy. What about painting it before they are properly dry? I know there are a lot of variables but how long about would you expect before they dry properly? What is the worse thing that could happen from the spread of the dots isn't ideal?

    Dot and dab marks

    I don't think that there should be an issue with damp, it is a brand new extension all built to building regs. My builder is away this week but the plasterers here doing rendering on outside .
