f**k**g clueless these guys who did your work. How the actual f**k can they have so little knowledge and have guts to do work in people's houses for money. Let's face it, £800 is cheap but for most customers thats a lot of money, but for things to work, it has to be done step by step, you have to sell your knowledge to customer, and tell em its gonna be expensive but there's no other way.

I had one the other day, did some work for this family, they were really happy etc. Got phone call last week, can i do some rendering outside and give them opinion on something. So go there and its a utility room they had reskimed, little toilet and another room for washing etc. Plus new roof and floor £1500 lol. You should see the state of it, they "floatet one of the walls, instead of multifinish used fine fill to skim it with lol, all of the walls lack of beads, look on the floor, obviously ox trowels brand spanking new, used maybe once. The customers asked for them to sort it and their answer was, because its a utility room they thought it doesn't have to be to high standards. f**k me lol

If you did the original plastering and they was happy why did they go somewhere else?

Was a much happier peaceful page before I posted my rubbish stuff haha
No it wasn't, you should see some of the other old threads. But they all like a lass who'll stand up for herself, ('cept they're afraid of Jess - she puts "potatoes" in the post to them)

What do you advise…. So two of them come to do the job. One the plasterer the other that works with him sometimes who is more a painter and decorator by trade. So he sent the decorator one back to repair. Basically he cut out more of the crack and filled it and rubbed down areas I moaned about , also filled areas and rubbed down. But some areas haven’t been corrected at all like the plug area has a hole and is bumpy as filler isn’t smooth and they didn’t take sockets off to plaster. Other plug socket apparently he can’t get too to rub down so that is rough. So some issues have been corrected fine as just needed a rub down, but the filler areas some are still s**t as it’s raised over plaster lol what shall I do now? Try sort it myself , give up or kick off more

Was plastering the skirtings in the quote? Best thing to do here is hire a Flex and blitz it.
