    Keep or sack

    Lots of young lads after a job. No point wasting your time on slackers when there's plenty grafters out there. I employ my girls little brother so when he's not doing as I tell him I tell his mum and he gets proper roasted haha

    plastic dust sheets

    I've used them also for the past 5 year. Takes a while taping everything up and maybe a bit more expensive in the long run but as you say at the end of the day you just roll up into itself and in the bin! Also handy incase you get the odd spillage, stops the carpet getting stained!

    Congratulations. . . ..!!!

    Sorry I thought I made it clear but I can't even make sense out of this. (Been a long day off sick). Option 2 was the board finish but I never knew he used a bonding agent. Why's the need for this over new boards? I'm f**k**g puzzled here.. Back to my bed!

    Congratulations. . . ..!!!

    If it's been troweled up then this texture is coming through then it's got to be 1 of 2 options, and as its on top of fresh boards, you have to assume the board finish is at fault. I would contact BG and not use the board finish for a while. No issues with it when I last used it Out of...

    BAD WORK

    Haha this looks like one of my very first homers I done whilst a 1st year apprentice. I thought I could get away with not using pva on an artex ceiling. I got a call back a few days later and the whole lot was hanging, just had to touch it and it fell down! Learnt an expensive lesson that day...

    Pricing help!!

    Not this post again! You can't seriously expect us to tell you how to price a job. Every job is different. Some jobs might be small meterage so will be a greater m2 rate than say a large job. As above post says, if you can't work out how much to charge per meterage then maybe pricing per day...

    Refina trowel

    So I've just received an email from Refina and after explaining to them I wasn't bothered about getting it replaced as I didn't have the time to send it back and wait on the replacement but they are just going to send one out to me anyway. Said it should be with me Monday. All they asked was...

    Refina trowel

    Yeah, they were actually pretty good but unfortunately I don't have time to go to a post office, plus it's my only rendering trowel so if I were to send it away I'd be without one till they sent it out. For the record I never use it to scoop render out the bucket/wheelbarrow as I hate having...

    Refina trowel

    Here is the trowel after approx 100-150m2 worth of base coating. Spoke to Refina and they said they would replace it for me. I've just not got the time to take it to the postal office and wait for them to send another one out, as I only have one rendering trowel. I'll just go back to my trusted MT

    Refina trowel

    Refina trowel

    Lol I'll just buy a new one and see what happens. Well it only says Refina on the trowel and nothing else so I'd be guessing at what one it was?!

    Refina trowel

    Hi, does Refina do warranty on their trowels? Bought a new one two weeks ago and the top rivets popped already. This is the first Refina ive used and actually like it. Don't want to buy another new one of the rivets are going to pop as quick as this one has, after very light use.
