Just lost dot , dab and skim a pair of three bed semis yesterday, go to work this morning and pick up three weeks outside rendering. Pucka result, massively undercut on the semis though.

I am expensive and rough and come to mention it very slow but we keep working year in year out on word of mouth so must be doing something right and I am going to get myself a sun hat as @zolco suggested, don’t know what colour yet though, must match my red shorts I guess

did it not cross you mind mouldy May have been very expensive ? You need to stop being so presumptuous young lady :coffe:
A bit like presuming that the plaster on old walls will be good enough to take a coat of skim. Lol:whistle:

This is why I like coming on forum before I always presumed everyone does same but obviously not

I was told very early on in career to toe poke with steel toe caps low down to assess the situation
