Need advice.

Hi guys I’m fairly new to plastering I’ve always worked with other people who have been on sites for 20+ years and know the ins and outs so I’ve never really had to think for myself. I’ve always asked questions but never really get an explanation because they’ve found it easier to just do it if there’s something I’m not sure on. I’ve been involved with rendering and plastering for 4 years now. Anyway I need advice on a couple of things. I’m doing a private job for a family friend and they want render knocked off a couple of walls with the tiles and want it boarded. What board should I use? Normal 12.5mm or insulated? One of the walls that need boarding is on an external wall so do I need to do anything damp proofing wise or will board just be ok? There isn’t any damp but I don’t know if the render has any waterproofer in and obviously I’m taking that off. Like I said I’ve always been told what board to use on what walls on site so I’ve never really learnt it for myself as much as I try.
Should I just put a layer of sand and cement with waterproofer in up to 1.1m just to make sure then Dot & Dab on top or am I overthinking it? Any advice would be really helpful, cheers guys.

You've got 25 lads working for you and you'd advise moisture board then skimming it? Firstly you haven't asked if any of the walls are being fully tiled, if so you shouldn't skim it, secondly if you are going to skim it why waste money on moisture board?

And personally I can never see any point in using moisture plasterboard unless your tape and jointing. Otherwise you're covering it in a moisture proof covering anyway lol

Skimming it is just a waste of time and money and actually makes it weaker for tiling onto, as you can add less weight to skim than you can board.

Obviously if a customer asks me to skim it I would lol

Your supposed to prime moisture board to skim , I only use PVA but rasp the board as well

Clean board rated at 32 kg/M2 for tiles and Addy
Skim it and it's down to 22
I know . Well didnt know exact numbers just with robbo saying it shouldnt be skimmed . I work for some who always want it skimming . Even customers after telling him its best not to still want it skimmed.
I allway try n talk em out of it purely because it bores me to tears

I don't always dab the boards , so often skim out level to hide builders sins

If the rooms being tiled floor to ceiling then dot and dab and tile it. If it's being painted dot and dab, skim and paint it.
How have you been plastering 4 years?
