Andy how often do you use primers? High suction backgrounds only?
how i were tought aswell mate proper plastering not this college crap learnt on site all day everyday lol though i can free hand it pretty straight aswell lolDunno why this thread was brought back up from two years ago, setting screeds is simple.. I ont do the box screeds like some of the guys off here, I just do vertical ones about 6 inches wide, floor to ceiling, level them off with me straight edge and level..
When they have firmed up enough, fill between and rule off using the screeds, perfectly flat and plumb wall every time, simples.
I doubt it, Im not a site worker, dont claim to be fast but good at what I do! Essex Andy I THINK uses screeds on site though! obviously theres a knack to site work, just something Ive never needed to or wanted to do! Dont wanna be a machine or a number knocking out ridiculous metreage, no other trade does, all about enjoying ya job, it aint the 18th Centuary!
