So a customer got me to quote months ago, then the weekly texts started of “can you not do that bit but this instead and make the quote cheaper. Eventually I have become annoyed and this was the icing on the cake so I had to tell them enough was enough. Probably cutting my nose off to spite my...
Cos anyone I’ve ever passed anything to/met/seen work of that is a regular on here has been decent.
Plus they all know if it’s s**t the rest of the group would slaughter them, in fact , knowing the bants on this group even if it’s a good job they will still get some tongue in cheek stick
Project manager sounds just as much a clown as the plasterer. Chances are he’s had a nice drink off the “plasterer” to keep him sweet.!
Most the people on here are decent at what they do, I’m sure there is someone that would take on the job and do it well. Project manager has probably read a...
How long have you had the speed skim?
I bought a new one back in the summer and noticed something wasn’t right. When I took a good look at it there was a manufacturing fault and it had a warp in it. Fair play they swapped it no questions
Sounds good, don’t think I could retire
I’d do other things, would love to own a few properties that need doing up so I can give my mates work when they have none and it funds itself, I’d never be able to sit at home all day, not good for the head and the mrs would do my f**k**g head in
I’m coming off the fb group it’s boiling my piss, like u say , “3 bed house all on before lunch”
They r killing us !!! They best make their money young cos they won’t live long enough doing that sort of s**t to their body’s
This is obviously always a topic of debate and dick swinging and there are factors that differ on jobs but as a rule when doing reskims how many ceilings/walls are people putting on at a time? I have always got by by doing ceiling and couple reveals then hitting opposite walls but seeing lads on...
Hahahaha that was no fault of his, just one of those things, top fella sorted me out when I needed it wouldn’t have a word said against such a nice fella. Was a shame as the merc was definately a better quality build than the traffic
To be honest not worked it out, don’t use it all that regularly now but estimated 350-400 on a tank. Local driving that is. Took it to South Wales from Surrey last year and did less that half a tank doing 200 miles so on motorway drive I’d say 450-500 but that’s a guess
It doesn’t sound like a nice situation by my standards but as I said, my standards. No confidence isn’t good and there has to be give and take. I know a few people who give their other halves all the money and that’s what works for them as they would go to Asda and come back with magic beans and...
It’s odd like I say, total personal preference, I can’t get on with anything other than my 16. Stupid as bigger trowel doesn’t make much difference to work amount , it’s not like I’ve got a giant handboard/hawk to go with it
What’s peoples views on size of trowels for their main trowel? I always got on best with marshalltown 16inch and a friend uses a marshalltown 20 inch, I know most use a 14 and to be honest I can’t see anything other than personal preference to be reason
So a customer got me to quote a job about 8 weeks back. I arrived and alarm bells started to ring. Some rooms had been done and done well, I asked why they were looking for someone else and was met with an awkward look. Then the husband walked in. Didn’t know if he wanted a quote or a victim...
Forgive any wrong spelling but can anyone share any advice/best practice about rendering quoins. Just came back from holiday and it was very popular but can’t say it’s something we have in my area. Would like to do some
I worked at London aquarium when it was being refurbed about 14 years back. They had a firm come in who called themselves “themers”
Bunch of hippie art graduates who travel the world “theming sets/attractions”
Few of them were clever guys but majority were shite, they were earning a fortune...
I had similar when I moved into my house, the inside walls were built with some shite block which had never been plastered , just painted over( they were old farm workers cottages thrown together after the war and not all that well. Previous owner had skimmed straight over as they appeared to be...
No not for the plates however if you are very unlucky and it’s a traffic officer on a bad day they can do a thing called pg9 on your car which in theory cancels your MOT and your car has to be recovered at your own expense. Very costly day- although very very unlikely
