Thanks for that. I'm considering pausing my boarding as I've finished a couple of area's and getting a plasterer in to see what they think and get a price for both boarded and not. The only downside is that I do not like getting trades out as it obviously costs them time / money and I may decide not to go with them. That's one of the reasons for coming on here to try and get some good advice and forum members can choose if they wish to spend time replying.I imagine there is a day or two rectifying involved before skimming plus you would take up a day or two talking all the time so would add 4 days to the job that’s all I’m saying so not a big extra but neither complete saving for you boarding it yourself if you was really counting the pennies expecting that part to be completely lost from your final bill
PS welcome to the forum
