Reveals

Good morning folks,

i’ve recently plastered my new house bar the reveals (as told by the window company) however, now they’ve fit the new windows they have sat smaller than the old ones meaning i need to dot and dab new reveals on.

However, how do i go about putting the angle beads on? I’ve already plastered the window walls and putting a new bead on the newly dabbed reveals would mean i have two beads, will they both show through when plastered and painted?

As well as this, how would it be working the plaster into the already plastered walls to blend into the old bead?

Thanks in advance for replies!

Easiest way is to get a closing bead around the window, whoever fitted them can do this. Otherwise bead up again and easi-fill around the the angle bead to save you skimming the whole wall.

That's a helluva slope outside!
In theory you could pencil bead it all round and make it a border feature, but Tony Rover has the best answer.

Sorry to let you know but the windows are too small and the whole job looks a little poor, a lesson to be learned for the future.

Get window fitters back and ask them to put a window in that fits.
what’s all the beef with his skimming it looks ok to me
