    Tape and joint new builds

    Haven't done much t&j not sure speed would be much different?(maybe because I do more skimming) skim is more durable,I know which one I'd choose for my own property.

    A message to you all

    Merry Xmas to you and the p1ss staff,have a good one.

    What went wrong?

    Flatten earlier and fill misses earlier,as its a re skim you may need to control the suction better to give you more time.fair play for posting pics hope you get it sorted.

    It's early days yet £19 isn't a lot really if you consider when you would normally quote a job you drive to the location which could cost £5-10 on fuel then spend your time measuring up and talking with the customer say £2o for an hour of your time,i think you've done right setting a £100 as a...

    Nela hawk

    I have a 14" nela board and a 13" mt board,I use the nela for almost everything now I just use the mt for dabbing,it feels more solid than the mt not sure if I use it more just because it's a larger size than the mt.

    British gypsum or Irish skimcoat

    @BigK said the same recently,he much preferred bgs skim by the sound of it.

    Is this right?

    If its a first floor ceiling you can run cables in the loft space but if it's ground floor he's going to have trouble without either making holes in the ceiling or taking floorboards up on the first floor,either way it's a bit arse about face he shoul have sorted electrics and lighting before he...

    Biggest ceiling skimmed on your own no speedskim just trowel

    To be honest for me anyhow using speedskim,spats and the like made the job no faster for me,i stick mainly to a carbon and a s*p*r*lex now and even on large areas I still stick to these two trowels.i still use speedskims they come in handy between door linings and flattening skim when it's thick...

    Am i missing something?

    If he had told you before That you had to wait for a check for a week or so then that's different but he didn't,he should have kept his mouth shut if he hasn't got a cash flow to pay on completion,he can't bank on customers walking out 5 minutes after you've finished and paying him in cash or...

    They are shocking all of them,we are taught to think £150 a day is a good wage it really isn't in this day and age,I think £1000 per week is fair to good but I'll never be happy on a set wage I'll always want scope to earn more, lads I know at factories tell me about their pay rises gone up to...

    Just landed a tiling job,75m2 900x150 tiles @ £25 a m2, £1900. Even if it takes me a week it's still better money than I get plastering,I hope to get it done in 3/4 days,you can see why people change to tiling,I prefer plastering even if the money isn't as good,just doing this one to help a mate...

    Day work in my area it can vary from £120 to £220 usually a decent spread that's established £150/£180ish I try to stay clear of day work and put m2 prices in or per room on refurb,if your quick enough you earn more than the above day rates and there's no arguing,it also usually sounds cheap to...

    It can be good money @£25 a m2 large floors with large tiles your laughing,sometimes just having to lay 3 or 4 tiles for £25 if you can lay 20/30m2 a day which isn't a huge amount for a decent tiler you can see how the £ can stack up.:envidioso
