Plastic backed ones are shite on carpet mate, they ruck up and slide everywhere. Buy decent double cotton twill sheets and take them to a laundrette for a clean every now and then. I haven’t bought any for a while but screwfix probably have some??

We get ours from Costco, think they are about 8 quid each , unfortunately we have a knob of a health and safety guy who is insisting we can’t use them as they are a trip hazard apparently, so they supply us with roll and stroll, must be costing them a fortune

Yes it can be I give the customer a option as I explain what going to happen and most of them are fine to cover if not I shall get sheet from merchant and charge for them and labour
I can see the attraction to this. I just try to get the customer doing as little as possible as they usually f**k it up lol.

No me to much hassle
No me to much hastle I miss the company I skim my self only look for a hand on big render jobs
I’ve tried many times to find one that’s keen but all I find is lazy fucks. No way I’m paying a bone idle c**t to wash a few buckets. I don’t trust em to pva correctly, just becomes a hassle.

I know of a few bums who will do a day here and there for cash so that works for me if I have a big boarding job or one that involve carrying a load of bags up a few storeys etc

Is a bit boring on ya todd tho I agree

Too right, last thing you want of a morning is to find out the customers idea of sheeting up is some shitty plastic and an old bed sheet.
