    Hardwall

    Smet and bg do a one coat plaster might be worth a shot if you got a good sized to go at

    Hardwall

    I sprayed it once had no problem mate but would say nowadays you’d be better with a one coat plaster instead, bg have demo video of the hard wall sprayed they apply gyprime then skimmed , I remember Mike Attis had a good video too spraying a place with his ritmo a while back

    Rendering with machine

    That’s true mate Weber recommend two passes Tbf you’d be better doing @Ollielake88 as @Plasterers1StopShop says ,I know two lads who use a m200 they spray that way too

    Rendering with machine

    I use a ritmo m mate one pass Weber but depending on the building I’d also do two passes if it’s needed only small jobs mainly after hack off I’ve never seen an m200 spray one pass though like you say they always spray really wet and in two passes on videos I’ve seen

    Could you use a one coat plaster instead, if it’s float and set the one coat would save you half your time bg do one and so do Smet

    Ocr preferred choice

  20. Vincey

    Correct or not correct??

  21. Vincey

    Ocr preferred choice

    Everyone mate rendaid is good , i agree with Dan too most ocr do see some cracks even the Smet does but most of us slap it straight onto old brick work , rendaid first it’s always a better job I feel anyhow , especially if the op has tried a few types and had same issue He could even try a...

    Looking to get in the game

    Being able to do a good quality job and be as tidy as you possibly can be is top priority mate rather than thinking you are gonna be on £250 a day just like that

    Has anyone here ever worked for a council ?

    My mate took a council job as plasterer a lot of quick easy patch repairs each day which he said was piece of piss to do but the problem he got was it was totally depressing dealing with the council folk politics and going into shitty houses for crap jobs

    Hardwall onto Thermalite Newbie Advice PLEASE!

    It’s very lightweight mate lime in it too fibres and polymers in comparison you can apply it in one coat at a good depth with no slumping say at 15/20 mm thick no problem and finish it within a few hours if you used it as render finish too outside I recon you’d love it and prefer it even if you...

    Hardwall onto Thermalite Newbie Advice PLEASE!

    Tbf there are better materials available now , times have moved on a lot , we use a Smet product which can be applied direct onto any block including the thermalite with no need to prime the block or the backing coat , saves time on labour and materials and when skim is applied it sits there...
