See this a lot on sites in winter. The walls have had a good soaking so blocks are full of moisture. Doors and windows open for a few days will help but if it was my place I would remove boards and give it a few weeks to dry
I usually use trade point or wickes purely cos I find it quicker to get in and out. Plus most my work is on site so rarely buy materials. I only used this particular supplier cos it was close by. Next time I will rather drive across town than get shafted.
Has anyone on here noticed huge price differences on materials from one merchant to the next?
I bought a 2.4 bead from Jewsons yesterday and with vat it was £2.06.
This morning went to another well known merchant and they charged a whopping £4.80!!!
I said it can't be right and what I paid day...
I've read that because the first rung of the home ownership ladder is out of reach now until your in your late 30s, there's no new customers coming through the doors to buy stuff for their homes. Most of the younger people rent now so they aren't buying diy materials.
Nela s*p*r*lex mk2. I thought the black coating was to give extra protection? My first s*p*r*lex delaminated but that was apparently a bad batch. Other lads I work with have had mk2 quite a while and no sign of the black film lifting even when they are put in a bucket of water overnight.
I start flicking water around or splattering the gear in their direction. Only if they're really getting on ya tits though.I got watched for 5 days solid back in the 80s. I mean an armchair job! Then when It was pay time, not a soul in the house
Was thinking same thing last week.Nobody I know on site has a labourer anymore. Shows how the prices are way behind.You get nothing for prep anymore, nothing for extra height, nothing for detail and there's no money on the job for labourer.We were all better off 20 years ago.
Yeah been using my work Buddy's speed skim but so set in my ways its hard to convert even though I clearly see the benefit! Must change as its all about metres now and you gotta be a metre eater on site now or your wasting your time.
Sounds good. So can you use a s*p*r*lex much sooner than you would a plazzi? The plazzi has made my life much easier so if the super flex is as everyone says, better then I can't wait to get mine.Started getting arthritis in my hands so anything to cut down the trowelling is a must now.
