No it wasn't.

That's not a £700 job.
It is here…. Prices was 400 skim only by 2 guys. Others was 670-800 for back to brick, board and skim. Ceiling was re boarded, window wall and one next to it was back to brick and board. Other two walls was a lot better so just had repairs then skim all over…. But I’m quite satisfied with it now. So I can leave you all be lol you will all be pleased

You may have already said, but how long did it take them?

3 days it was. Till I moaned about finish then they come back twice since… there was some grit stuff they put on wall that wasn’t boarded so that was left to dry one day

Ok, so enough time to do a good job.

Do you have any photos during?

All the time in the world, yet they turn out s**t like that. If you're not going to pay to get it hacked off, then it's you a bag of filler and sanding till you're happy enough to live with it.

That's the long and short off it.

Here is one … they did do something decent which helped me out to be fair. They cut up the carpet and took it with them to get rid of it. Which they didn’t need too, so appreciated that

In some ways, from what I can glean from your replies, is that they were kind of well meaning in that they almost knew how to go about the job, and prob thought they were doing a good job but clearly pushing their skill set to the limit. No excuses though.

Sorry you're in this situation mate.

I've seen some shocking plasterers but this is beyond a joke!

I hope you havent paid them?
I'd also be reluctant toask them to re-do it.

Maybe take the L, find another plasterer and put it behind you?
