Cheers guys I guess you have to have one and just try it out and get the hang of them. I can see it as a great addition to the tanking services I carry out and spraying the tanking on also. Do you clean out every couple of hours? Probably be running SBR through it too so I am guessing every...
If I get one I will get some 4mm mesh and screen it before I put it through the machine, was thinking plenty of feb and slightly wetter. All I wanted to know really is will the machine handle it and also how many metres would you get done in say 8 hours?
I just want something that I can get in places that is compact enough. Like I said its for a few jobs a year so I can speed things up. for internal work only really. I will have a mesh so I can pre screen out any lumps before it enters the machine.
Just wondering if anyone has used a eze24 with S&C render, looking to use a machine for basecoats and spraying tanking coats. Don't want to go down the big money route as its only for a few jobs a year. Something compact too, that's why I thought the EZE 24.
Anyone got any ideas or is...
That looks more like condensation to me lol, I have saved customers about £40k this year because of arseholes without a clue round my way lol. Tanking condensation, embarrassing at times to be in the same trade lol.
If you have not got a clue why be doing the work?
You are suffering from high humidity probably, that is why the dabs are probably showing up and you have some black spot mould. Ventilate more and put your heating on also more. Is the loft insulated ? and how thick
I see condensation all the time, its only mainly due to peoples lifestyles, yeah the piv works but so does opening a window two when you have been cooking or used the bathroom. people feel hard of opening a window so they are trapping in the humid moist air and all it does is condensates on the...
Ideally you need to get on to tanking the next day, its all to do with the curing process. I read somewhere if you leave it to dry out then start to go over it then there is a chance the coats won't stick to each other and it will go boxy ?
I always get on it next day, yeah it does condensate a...
Piss corner lol, You need to take a damp reading to see if its wet, might be a case of chopping it back anti sulphate and re-plaster or it could be something more. What is on the other side of that wall?
Just get the salesman/rep to tell you the spec but remember them guys aint doing the job so really if they f**k up its not there arse. Always remember that.
Me I would get them to dig out the floor.
Blind it with sand
Then crack on with your SBR backing coat and...
Looking at the pics I would say its probably a rising damp issue, but you need to check to make sure the plaster is chopped back from the floor also to ensure its isolated. What I find in older brick houses is they tended to incorporate a form of dpc in the external walls of the house. But on...
Right lets try and work out your issues first, yes a pic is good but not always gives you the full view. Could you tell us your internal floor heights compared to external ? Also the drainage around your property is it good or does the garden get sodden ?
It looks to me that you have...
Dehumidifier after you hacked off should have been used I do this now on properties that have really bad dampness issues. I leave one running for a week to try and get as much moisture out before I start to re-render
I reckon you might get away with spending your spare time sitting there with a hair dryer on it full blast. It might work ? lol
Sorry it was a job I looked at, the woman actually did that to try and cure the damp lol You meet them I tell yaaa !!!!!!
I was going to say its either Piss or salts from the floor lol
It amazes me how so many people miss diagnose salts as damp. Saying that I have lost count of the amount of halfwits mistake raising damp for condensation. Argh well it keeps the money changing hands I guess lol
Makita do good breakers, personally if you get a couple of years out of one then they have paid for themselves I think, £400 is about the right price. no point hiring unless your only using one 2 or 3 times a year.
I always find the hilti stuff is a lot lower rpm than other stuff, I hired a...
Have you gone over it with a damp meter ? also is there salt's coming through the wall ?
Its not a case of throwing on a render and hoping for the best.
Is the ground heights different between you and next door ? is the dog pissing on the wall lol
More info please
If you are using K11 you need to be using the sovereign SBR in the red tub, its thicker than the everbuild etc stuff you see on the shelf. the pissy stuff is good for priming walls.
Make sure you use the correct spec as on the bag or the spec sheet, also don't mix more than you need.
I have a supaflex I only use it for flattening in and troweling up, stick to the trusty old MT Gold for laying it on. I have the supaflex mini trowel too that's a class little trowel for tricky areas.
If you used a supaflex to lay on its would be like a rippled mess.
The refina 36in ss spat is...
I have seen a lot of plasterers these days rendering over the old stuff, I personally don't do external rendering as my area is mainly damp and timber treatments and renovations. What system is it they are using for this?
They are using big rolls of what looks like scrim ?
From what I can work...
I was told that, more people know about you the more work you get, its just making sure you don't advertise in the wrong places where your not being seen.
I know a guy who told me you can pay so much on face book to have your advert be seen by people in your area
I think we all know guys in different trades and I know enough that if I am stuck I can give them a ring.
My work is mainly private customers, rarely site work. I do get the feeling YP is on its way out, I think they will end up more as an online directory than a printed version.
I have chatted...
Yeah I get word of mouth from old customers but I also get a bit from the yellow pages, just wondered if anyone had found facebook and google better options these days.
I kind of think the yellow pages now is a dying format really. Just wondering if I should scale it back a bit now and maybe try...
Just kind of nosey and thought it might be an idea to see what you guys think.
Where do you advertise and also would you use a yellow pages now or do you just google for anything your looking for ? I mean services not porn :bananas:
I have heard everyone is using the old facebook or...
I think they call that finish rustic :wtf:
This is the trouble with people going for cheap they get what they pay for, also why do they not ask for references or examples of where they have worked so they can ask a previous mug/customer lol
Looks like they aint even put a rule over it lol. I...
I was just called in to sort out the problem its the story of my life, the amount of "experts" out there is amazing when it comes to dampness. Basically the house was an old stone cottage that had been left for donkeys with no maintenance.
They pointed it up and re-plastered the inside without...
Here is some salt damp/salts contaminated plaster for you to look at.
The house has been repointed over 18 months ago but the customer was still suffering from what they thought was damp penetrating.
I inspected the property and it was clear it was salt damp, also they had 2 chimneys in need of...
Yeah I got mine of amazon, just took out the light that was in there and got a 12v connection block. Wired them up kind of easier than I thought. I just made sure I had one of them battery tester screwdrivers so I could tell what was live.
They really make a difference in the winter think I paid...
Hack off the affected area, treat with an anti sulphate a couple of times then re-render with a sulphate resistant render then skim.
The plaster at the moment that is on there is going to have to come of as its full of migrating salts, you will be constantly plagued by salt damp if not.
FFS sort yourselves out, make yourselves some shelving to suit yourselves I will take a pic of mine for you.
You end up carrying less crap then or breaking stuff as its all in one place.
My van is a lot tidier since I sorted mine out.
Also I have put in led lights in the back its bright as the...
I use a fair bit of this nowadays, the sovereign renderlite I use it is all the same s**t, I use it mainly due to the amount that can be put on the wall in one day and also the thermal qualities it has compared to S&C, I find it good tackle but it takes a bit to get the hang off it.
Different approaches for different scenarios I think, but making sure you dry the wall out is the most important thing to do. I sometimes hack off the render and then lend a customer a dehumidifier for a week or two until they have dried out the walls as much as possible.
I have worked for...
Make sure you get it dried out for a start, dehumidifier going till its not filling up and ensure you keep the room sealed doors closed etc.
Then anti sulphate the wall and either sbr scratch it and spot insulated boards or renovating plaster as external walls are always colder you need to help...
Yeah same as barrier mortar I reckon, that sets within 30 to 45 mins. its a pain in the arse to use that stuff only really used to do wall to floor fillets and internal corners.
It must be costing them more in materials to do it in a day than the cost of coming back ?
Why they don't just have a...
Try some plastersizer maybe? waterproofer is not really a good way to fatten it up, just go pissy.
I am going to hopefully do the PCA stuff within the next 12 months, it looks easy enough as I am surveying a few times a week now and on the tools too so its actually a nice break when u get sick...
