Good evening fine folk .
I saw a feature on local news last year about a foodbank not far from me. It showed some of the people using them and the extremely commited folk running them.
I was surprised to see some genuine hard working folk using them and others that had just hit hard times...
@Groove37 aka Mike ..
Mike jumped in on a big job I have going so I could get on other stuff and did a bloody lovely job, kept the job running... Bloody nice bloke to boot :love:
Gave him a little bit of sausage today, should of seen his face light up . :bananas:
One for @Runswithscissors or anyone else in the know, viewed a job and client has fitted Knauf Aqua panel and asked for it to be skimmed, I advised that this wasn't suitable for plaster. Client told me Travis Perkins said they were.
He called for clarification and was told again yes suitable for...
:coffe: I was on a job recently and chaps installing a log burner finished the alcove with universal one coat claiming it has sufficient heat resistance to prevent cracking. New one on me, they said they do it all the time.
Any validity to this claim do you think? If so it would save an awful...
Evening fine folk, hope everyone is well and safe.
Been asked to evaluate the render on side of this house. The render is solid but has a crack from corner to corner. Few other houses showing stress but no sign of subsidence or settlement issues. Lack of expansion or belcast along the apex...
Good evening @BritishGypsum

Deliveries down here in the Southwest are getting sparse, how do you expect output this month?
This is a quick update on the Charity 'Jolly Josh' that we raised money for on here through our last fundraiser.
For anyone new or that missed it we ran a fundraiser on here for a small independent family run charity created out of the tragic loss of their little boy Josh...
I've been doing this for a few years now so thought I'd share it for anyone that doesn't think a good whisk could take it.
On smaller renders I find using a large tub and whisk easier than a belle.
I find it much quicker as I can mix up the equivalent of 4 or 5 belle mixers in one go and has...
Morning Bryan ;)

A client asked if there was a chance of any asbestos in his Artex ceilings, we had an asbestos test and these were the results. Ceilings are all light stipple Artex, the kind we've all scraped and skimmed a thousand times.
After seeing the report I asked how much of a risk this was, testing...
This topic often comes up so I'd thought I'd share this story, bear in mind this all happened pre-lockdown.
A friend of mine is a retired policeman of 18 years, prior to that served in the Army. He has always done his own renovations and has picked up a solid skill set.
Last year he told me...
...wants to move to the North East. :rayos:
I'm heading up there end of March for a gander, hopefully if the moon's align I can catch up with @Arti for a brew.
Any insight would be interesting, :frenetico:
