Having a tub of fibre lime sorts cracks out a bit of a piss about cutting the cracks out and filling but sorts the problem.
Artex sealer kills the suction on old painted lime walls , have you not tried paper tape.
I give mine 2 coats pva if your skimming over plasterboard which has been artex then tell them when the ceiling drys they may get some cracks showing through which you will not be
able to see because off the artex.
Yep I was the first one down our street to use it:RpS_thumbup: Did a gable in it was not on blocks but bricks have to to say
I had total control over the suction . I would use it over blocks do not really see a problem, feel the fear and go for it.
It's not just about price mate it can also be how you are with people and how they see you. Job like that price there and then and it's a days graft even for an old fooker like me, unless the walls are really shite.
Pvc window fitters cause more problems to render then anything else. I live on the seaside and pebble dashed , rendering s+c with no problem and here we get winds from the east and Northerly blast . and looking at jobs 20yrs ago little tired looking but still doing the job.
Am afraid not zombie 50 a day , not sure about there work thou. Flynnman looked at a job last week ceiling and making good , but one of our local firms had been working the guy feck them off, it was dog rough and this firm you will have seen drive a long wheel base van with green lettering.
Not what you know mate but who you know, that's how you survive if that is the right word. Domestic is cut throat as site work.
The big battle in your mind you hold the key to wealth or poverty your choice.
I know of a few who are working on Â£50 day when ask why they just say better then nothing. I think they are also getting working tax credits but saying nothing.
For myself I know my worth and are worth a lot lot more then 50 day I always go the extra mile .
I often think when folk telephone for a price what they think is the price they thought that it would be. They may get prices of friends on what they have had done and use it as a yardstick and so on. But sometimes I think they seem to think that plastering is no big skill and just a stepping to...
I can only think over the years the render is so dry from pvc windows and central heating. , I did a bathroom last week and on one wall which had the problem off patches of skim blown from the render, so when I re skimmed on these patches was small craze cracking on my first coat yet the top...
I get this a lot on houses built in the 1970.s on re skims when the wall paper has been taking off it lifts the skim coat off. The render
is so dry it's hard to find anything which will control the suction on the render , pva a waste of time at present am giving it a coat of
sbr leave over night...
