    damp proofing> sand and cement onto a plastic membrane

    It is cheaper, except you have to do it in 2 coats. So he'll save 50 pence on gear and spend 100 quid extra on labour. Do it in sand and cement mate and take more money off the thick c*nt :)

    damp proofing> sand and cement onto a plastic membrane

    Unsuprisingly the builder is a f*ckin moron! He wants sand and cement because he thinks its more 'water proof', what does he think the plastic membrane is doing? Thick f*ck!

    where do u think i stand with this

    Of course he didnt want to get involved, because you arnt complaining about being over paid are you! Try this, phone him up and say youve been over paid by £1000, I'll bet he's happy to get involved then. When he does offer to be helpfull and intervein, say "oh sorry I meant under paid"...

    where do u think i stand with this

    The order was worked out on a price per meter which on the BOQ added up to £3600. However the final tally was less meters so a smaller over all price. I think this is a deliberate stunt by the QS to get a loww rate per meter by pretending it was a bigger job. I've said it 10 million...

    CSCS Card Renewal -----

    Such a scam! Why is there any need to re-new it other than to take money off you?

    where do u think i stand with this

    He will probably win if it went to court to be honest, unless you have anything in writting about the £3500 as a fixed price. The cheeky **** has had you right over and he knew it from the start, otherwise why would he have bothered with the boq? What I'd do is follow him home one night...

    skimming, do you give you 1st coat a flattener once its on the wall/ceiling?

    Well is deffinately easier for second coating if you do flatten it. Some dont think its worth the extra time doing it.

    Never done mono need some advice

    I was doing a lime course a couple of years ago and they did this stuff called glaster its basically lime render with a load of crushed glass in it. It looks rather good so I am ordering some of the glass and going to add it in the mix, not too much cos that will weaken it a bit, and see how...

    Water/Fat drip marks showing through paint

    I think he means - It says dont use too much water. However fat marks happen!!! especially on reskims. I have been trying to work out why it happens, and im 99% certain its this. The very nature of a reskim is because the walls are all over the place, when we 'trowel up' we are...

    first go on stilts

    I was about 35 when I first tried them. They take a bit of getting used too but it aint that hard. I used to spend a few minutes each night walking up and down my kitchen. Just so I didnt look like f*ckin bambi when I went on a job with them :)

    Never done mono need some advice

    I only chose mono because I liked one of the colours to be honest, I am totaly open to suggestions. It might have to be 2 coat though , this tyrol thats on is really thickly done, and the bottom half is bare brick.

    Never done mono need some advice

    Top half of my house is covered in a pile of wank otherwise known as tyrolean its as skanky as f*ck too. I fancy one of the coloured renders and was looking at monocouche. My questions are - can I scratch it with normal sand and cement and just top coat it in the colour, and is there...

    First Bigger Ceiling on my own

    That IS a big ceiling for a first attempt, just dont panic and dont f*ck about fannying with bits. You can PVA it to slow the set down, it stops the boards sucking the watter in. Get a bag of jelly babies, they are great for energy, and I'm not taking the p1ss either.

    spraying finish

    spraying finish

    Maybe they have developed a plaster that can go on thick (like mp45) as well as thin like skim. Ad if they havent they should do, and if they do they can pay me cos that was my idea :)

    tricks of the trade

    I wouldnt one coat on a reskim either, troweling up compresses the plaster and thats when bits of the old wall start to show through.

    H section

    H and I are the same shape but one has bigger flanges :) Maybe we need a treminology thread. I remember all the confusion over mix, set and batch in a few threads. Mix, set and batch are all the same thing, it means how much you put on in one go.
