Does this look acceptable at all?

Hi, previous to some earlier posts,i had my house fully skimmed last month and have noticed after painting the door sides look very unprofessional. I have attached some images below. Is that at all normal after re skimming a house?

Sorry, but that's not a good standard of plastering.

You can improve it using Gyproc EasiFill 60 (sanded when dry), and then repaint, or you can bite the bullet and pay a competent spread to reskim it to the standard it should've been.

Get it rubbed down and a bit of filler in it. How’s the rest of the house? Bit out of order slagging someone for round one door when test of work could be spot on.
Exactly, how often do you come up against a rounded reveal. Just rub it down with some sandpaper and move on if rest is good standard

The rest is generally okay. I just thought that looked terrible. Thanks for the feedback guys. The whole building works has been a nightmare.

Hi All. I am still concerned about the ceiling. I am just sitting here noticing plaster board lines on various places. Hard to get a decent picture but I have attached latest one. What should I do to get rid of plasterboard joint lines?

To better honest I am asking for advice as the builder I used got someone he uses to do the plastering and whatever I ask him regarding anything he has done even if it not good he will lie and tell me it's good which has already happened so I just wanted independent advice.

I notice it mostly at night with the downlights off and the side lamps with a strong light on. When the downlights are on it is harder to see.

No s**t stop coming on here trying to get money off you bill. The builder isn't wrong the plastering is good enough your house ain't the sistine chapel. You want better in future source a reputable plasterer yourself
