    sqm per day

    All depends on the job as no job is the same, some jobs you can prep in 1 hour, others could be 3 days prep, also 9 times out of 10 u don't just get a big wall to skim u could get 1 small area with loads of angles & fiddly bits which would take the same tile to skim a big wall or ceiling so...

    pricing this job

    Iv done a 6 week course & I know others on here have also, I price jobs fair depending on the work needed, instead of focusing on people who do courses in a negative light I would suggest u focus on ur plastering, u say u have been plastering for 10 years yet u don't know how to fill a gap in...

    While you're here!

    Those 3 words equals 2-3 extra hours work it's painful to hear but to keep your customers happy u do it anyway, I just find it so funny how many people say it & look at it as if it would take u 5mins even when they ask while your finishing your second coat lol

    Best Vans

    I just got the 270 but I just copied & pasted this from the ford site "It ranges from 2500kg to 3325kg to provide 683kg to 1484kg of payload" if you do get one I would highly recommend getting them to ply line it it was only £150 with Evans Halshaw but made a lot of difference.

    That's what I thought, I was even taking the piss out of it with my mate saying it looked girly, then I actually went and had a look at one as my man died on me & looks truly can be deceiving, plus they are practically giving them away at the moment. This pic was taken a couple of weeks ago, I...
