    Hack off and re-render

    A couple of months back i posted some pics of a builders own rendering 80m2 of rough , cracked render with bad beading . I told the customer (a work colleague) not to pay him and that i could sort it for less than 2k but the builder says he can hack off and do it again for £500 . :eek:

    Raking joints on retaining wall

    A customer I have been working for wants a new retaining wall tanked before it is fitted with 6mm 1200x1200 porcelain tiles. The builder didn't sort out any water penetration issues when it was built unfortunately. Have any of you raked the joints back 10 to 15mm prior to a sbr slurry coat ?
