    yeah love the sand cement way mate. I never really done much hardwall float. that is long gone round here. 90% of it is dabbing now but clueless builders dabbing onto bear brick solid walls and wondering why it's damp in 2 months!! As I was always told, you can't beat waterproof sand cement.
  21. roryston


    I'm doing 3 rooms sand cement float and set at the moment. it's a pleasure to do. Glad I was shown the way when I was as most lads my age (26) and younger can't do it.

    I love doing ceilings. done a 32 sqm one on my tod last Friday as the other plasterer couldn't handle it. I asked him why he didn't do it he said he doesn't really do ceilings. judging by his walls he don't do them much either

    Weber pral.

    I thought the same. looks like it's been lightly patches over.... I'm guessing I could just get the weber prime on the panel and go back over the lot..... I've never had to rectify damaged texture coat before as I'm sure you can tell
