Mate not everyone wellies it on one coat when On site . You’ll just get money stopped . If you want to earn decent money then just do domestic and leave a mint job .

Ok reason I asked that was wondering what people put in cos there maybe 3 of us I’d be guessing at 6 bag mixes.
We’ve done rolling gauges before does anyone do them on site at all and hit say 3 rooms at once on a roll

[/QUOTE personally I think 3 people is too much .2 at the most . An average 3 bed house to skim out price would be around £1300 depending on your location . We are at around £2.80 -£3.50 at best around East Midlands.’

Why are they

Ok, Will simplify you will need to skim on your own 3 bed semi max 3 days on your own to a decent standard to keep up with programmes.

3 men gangs on would need massive areas on commercial works to make it viable.

Nobody has a labourer to skim anymore so forget that thought at best set yourself as a 2 gang.

I wouldn’t be able to do a 3 bed semi in 3 days on my own. I know that for certain think that would be to much for me.
can do a room a day easy enough been doing 2 bed apartments bathroom kitchen/ lounge 3.5 days in my own. That’s with mixing and tidying up 3 metre high

An average boarded rooms a gauge on most new builds

I’m no genius but one thing I know is you have to try whatever is going around in your head once otherwise it will send you crazy you didn’t
Life’s to short to be thinking and waiting just do it
So which idea was it that sent you crazy Pete? It must have been some big idea as you're f**k**g wackerdoodle.

I dream of finding a genuine use for a speedskim and plazi flex!
Plaziflex would be perfect for cleaning any gear off the speedskim without damaging it.
The speedskim can be used for flattening in your first coat on board lol or ruling off the topcoat on a render.
Have a good one mate.
