    I only ever use it for patching in and it's usually gone within an hour of laying on

    Half time.

    It does work. But be careful how much you put in, especially if only mixing a small amount of plaster. Went solid half way through mixing with me before!

    Quoins

    Whats with the sarcasm? He's answered your question reasonably there. You didn't give any details about the job, size, detail, height etc so unless you give exact details how do you expect someone on here to give you a price for a job they haven't seen lol

    Newly skimmed walls - is this an acceptable finish?

    That's a terrible finish. No excuses. If you haven't handed over any cash yet, don't even think about it. Get the plasterer back that did your other room if you were happy with their work.

    Rendering celcon blocks

    I would give it a slurry coat with sbr. Leave it dry. Scratch coat. Top coat. Job done. I'm with you on the block work who gives a s**t what it looks like when its going to be plastered . Like a school playground with some of the replies you've had, just lads showing off acting like they know it...

    Artex or not - worried

    The floor tiles are a lower risk than artex. Only become risky if you take a disc cutter to them

    Anyone used this?

    Anyone used this stuff yet? Thinking of getting some to try as I do a lot of patching in work so would be ideal (if it actually works). Just wana hear some opinions on it before I waste my money. Thanks.

    Tanking slurry and internal render

    I've got a job starting soon that will involve tanking the walls and re plastering. Haven't used the limelight plaster before, may try it on this job. What thickness can it be layed on to? And I'm assuming you just devil float like sand and cement and skim over?

    Tapit tape fail

    So this is a tape designed for sticking beads to walls, that fails to stick beads to walls? Which means it's completely pointless? Or am I missing something here

    Tapit tape fail

    QUOTE="Neilevs18, post: 1282992, member: 40493"] Yes I always use them on reskims mate. Even on sand and cement walls they stay on fine, even the heads. I have had to put a nail in either side if there's a belly in the wall but if the walls are good they'll stay on no problem, from my experience...

    Prepping for tyrolean

    Yeah I've read a few different threads since joining and like you said theres a lot of good advice on here from plasterers who clearly know their onions, nothing wrong with asking for advice when you're not sure about something is there. I consider myself a decent plasterer so I'm sure i will be...

    Prepping for tyrolean

    The whole house was done quite thick with tyrolean it almost looks like rough cast. As long as the wall I redo looks something similar I'll be happy, it's only a small outside boundary wall I'm doing, plus it will get painted to match the existing once I've done my bit anyhow. Hopefully I get...

    Prepping for tyrolean

    Cheers for the replies all, much appreciated. I agree with Lox on this one, surely it's better to get the background as neat as i can if it's not going to take me much more time. I do think some of you need to tone it down a tad though, it's ok to have a difference of opinion we all have our own...
