Final post, but it's been helpful to get your responses thank you. Even if we are providing comedy value in the extent of our being conned...
When we realised he had not removed the wallpaper (and it was definitely patterned wall paper not lining paper- I have photos of it before) we asked why they hadnt removed it this time and that this seemed wrong.
In your house you do not have wallpaper in the bedroom, you have lining paper that strengthens the walls against cracks because your walls are soft and are done on matting not brick or solid plasterboard. Once that was the technology for strengthening the walls, if the lining paper was to be removed it is highly likely the old plaster to come off with the paper, this will lead to complicating the job thus significantly higher price for plastering.
Because of the circumstance we have taken measures to fully strengthen the walls and ceiling with specialist hardwall (tougher than the normal one we use) and render mesh.
Prior to each operation we have prepared the walls with a specialist waterproof impregnator that does not allow the moisture to soak into the surfaces and additionally strengthens the walls and ceilings in depth. This is more than enough to strengthen all kinds of surfaces and prevents further problems such as cracking and softness of the surfaces.
Multi-finish plaster has been done on two coats to thicken and further strengthen the surface.
After completing the job cleaning of corners and imperfections is to be done immediately before painting by the tradesman who is to complete the paintwork. All processes to complete the job have been done to follow manufacturer specifications, this guarantees the quality of the work.
Until the plaster is fully dried the material does not allow any further corrections, as a result the painter has to do making good not the plasterer. This is because of the plaster drying time. Technologically any corrections for plaster are done after first mist coat with diluted paint (ratio 1:1) after paint is fully dried.
I hope we have been detailed enough in the information we are sending you.
As you have now found out, you have been bull shitted. They’ve spun you a good yarn though...and why would you know any different. TPF is not CAB so anyone who participateS on here is under no obligation to help you as they’re not getting paid etc blah blah. What you will get though is honesty, but it’s not always pretty.
Hope you can get some resolution
