    Rendering over painted render

    That's not true mate. I'm not Parex approved but they'll give me a written spec. to pass on to customers if necessary.

    I'll bet you didn't let the sand and cement cure properly.

    EML galvs vs SS (rendered dormer cheeks)

    EML definitely needs to go on battens not straight onto membrane on ply. If he says otherwise he's no perfectionist trust me.

    Clean Skirting Line

    Do you then polish the stop beads once finished?

    Clean Skirting Line

    I mean clean/rub them down with a fine sandpaper or scouring pad.

    EML galvs vs SS (rendered dormer cheeks)

    Ok, the last outside render we did where we were removing and replacing, there was just one smallish projection of a timber construction. Galvanised EML onto battens fixed to building paper covered ply. The two side elevations were only rusty in places, the back, well it's a miracle it hadn't...

    EML galvs vs SS (rendered dormer cheeks)

    So you'll happily spend 30k on the kitchen but shy away from an extra £400 for SS riblath? You sound like just the sort of person I don't want to work for. Nice apt user name.

    Clean Skirting Line

    I do, as you say, clean the beads down, even on site work. But you will never, ever catch me putting scrim along the skirting line. Just work neatly and I can't see any need for such nonsense.

    Rendering over painted render

    Well of course it is, what would you expect?

    Rendering over painted render

    You can check whether the paint is oil based by using a blow torch on it. If it bubbles and burns it's oil based, if it just goes brown and smoulders it's water based.

    just starting out advice needed

    First question; if you wanted to learn the trade why didn't you do it the proper way and work with your uncle rather than shitty, fulloffuckingbollocks course? Second question; why the f**k did your relation get you, a complete no nothing, to do the job rather than your uncle, obviously...

    Redundancy to retrain as a plasterer, and questions inside..

    Oh dear god please don't. Are you too thick to train as a plumber or sparks? I'm guessing so as you're too thick to have already realised that they're way better trades to get in to. No offence.

    Has anyone ever had any freebies from British gypsum?

    They've given me the bollockache with every bag of Multi for years now so this should be a doddle for them.

    If @Danny 's head wasn't so f**k*d up with bees he could have arranged a group discount for us. You can be sure the c**t will mention it as the TPF get-together but hasn't helped one jot. w**k*r!

    New job today

    No need to be jealous mate. If you up your game by roughly 4000% I'll feel and say the same about you. Tony is genuinely one of the few on here whose opinion I truly value from a trade point of view. No offence.

    customers telling you what they want to pay

    You're dead right about the internet mate. At one time even within the trade people didn't know what others were charging or paying for materials. Not to mention the chancers gleaning information about how to tackle jobs from way more experienced guys. This forum itself is a perfect example. A...
