Hi,

I am trying to find an alternative to Parex...is there one? It is for external rendering.

Many thanks

D.
Parex is a good product, easy to use, of good quality and a reasonable price. Weber is a good product but costs 50 percent more.
Killseran is pretty good to use though only used it once and the newer k rend I haven't used so can't comment but people saying it's better than before.

Hi all,

New to this forum so please go easy on me, I'm looking for your professional advice/ opinions on my situation.

I have many years exp in the building trade and did a 5 year apprenticeship and then went on to work for several different company's. Cutting a long story short I was forced to set up on my own during the recession and wasn't really prepared for it. I couldn't afford to advertise, Got odd job coming in but no where near enough to keep me going So I decided to take a job with an electrical generation company working in the control room. I earn 25k a year but miss the building trade and using the skills I was trained in. I'm thinking of setting up again this year doing bathrooms, kitchens, tiling and plastering but I'm worried i won't earn the same as I am doing now, I have a young family and a mortgage to consider so any help on this subject would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,


Danny

Try making a start as a second job alongside your existing job, so you will still have something to fall back on if things dry up.

Thanks for reply,

I have tried this approach before but wasn't as motivated to get work because it was on my weekends off. I feel as though I never committed 100% because I didn't need to. I was thinking of saving a couple months wages to cover my initial start up then just throwing everything at it , all or nothing approach kind of thing.

I met an older woman at a bar last night. She looked pretty good for a 60-year-old. In fact, she wasn't too bad at all, and I found myself thinking she probably had a really hot daughter. We drank a couple of beers, and she asked if I'd ever had a Sportsman's Double? 'What's that? I asked. 'It's a mother and daughter threesome,' she said. As my mind began to embrace the idea, and I wondered what her daughter might look like, I said, 'No, I haven't.' We drank a bit more, then she said with a wink, 'tonight's your lucky night'. We went back to her place. We walked in. She put on the hall light and shouted upstairs: 'Mom...you still awake?'
