messy job

#1
Hi
can anyone help,ive just spent £1300 on having my hall,stairs and landing plastered,but have holes in the stair skirting,the plasterer has said i need to cork it,because decorators do that before they decorate,but i thought having it plastered would leave clear clean (filled ) skirting.can someone advise? (their are actually quite alot of holes in corners,above skirting,and troll lines on most of the walls )

I can't see a single thing wrong with the job.

Was it as messy as this one? Holes everywhere. Got to be home by 3. Late start. And a f**k**g Sunday? Brand spanking new kitchen to be painted NOT tiled. Led strip lights beaming off plaster.

Can you imagine a site monkey unleashed in there? Write it off in a heart beat

Well here's my Sunday I'm genuinely feel like telling him I've had enough of them I'm always the daft c**t who loses out.. Pick the materials up.. End up working late whilst he earns thousands and I get a mere share..

Why oh why not just finish at ceiling line!

Couple more handboards for such a better job imo!
Listen if it was down to me I'd rip the lot off and start again and then skim it all... He specifically says not to do it.. I don't no how many times I tell him trying to dab a board on the membrane to match the existing which is ruffled out is a nightmare at the best of times.
He charges silly money for it too if its for a landlord he says do it half way but in someone else's house he says do the opposite I bang my head against the wall.
