Newly plastered wall is bumpy.

Hi there, I recently had one of our rooms plastered and after painting I have noticed that the wall is very bumpy. I’m not happy with this but I don’t know if I am being pedantic, I want to contact the plasterer and ask him to fix it but I don’t know how we would do this now. Would I be in the right if I did contact him? Is this normal? It’s really noticeable when I have my lamp on at night and it’s really bugging me.

Not great, but not terrible.

It would be possible for you to fill the hollows and fade the proud areas, using a taping knife and Polyfilla or EasiFill

Then (ideally 24 hours later) sand it with 220 grit sandpaper and then paint it.

Are you blind in one eye geez??

I take your point - it might be terrible to you and me, but what I meant is that it's not terrible compared to some of the horror stories we've both seen on TPF. You know how shocking some of those are. This one's quite tame, by comparison!

Everything is relative, and this one could be remedied adequately with a taping knife.

Yes it’s not the best!!
Easy fix if you sand down the effected areas.
Obviously sand the thick of it off first with a courser grit then finish off with a finer grit.

I just feel like I shouldn’t have to do this. I would have no idea what to do and will end up making a right mess. The room had to go back to brick so cost a lot of money and I feel like it should be fixed with no cost to myself.

Not terrible cmon mate it's fckin rough

Yes, it is rough, but jeezus - some of the abominations we've all seen make this one look like a sunday picnic.
I was just trying to be supportive to the original poster and offer her a solution which would make it look better than it does now. Please don't interpret that as me feeling that the original job is to an appropriate standard, as we both know it isn't (y)

He should apply for NASA's 'photography' department!

I hear they need spreads to work on their film sets, for all their "Honest, it's real, Guv'" photographs of 'moons' and 'planets'
