see what i mean LOL LOL
We all do things different, I never take a day to skim a room it would just be too long of a day I only work domestic so the earliest I can start is 0830 hrs (as most people just dont want you there before that) I only work on my own, so first thing I do is sheet up from entry point to room, then sheet up room 100%; next rad is drained the removed as well as brackets, I then run a scraper over all the walls and at the same time give them a brush down, I then apply 1st coat of PVA (5-1) and while this is drying fit and scrim all the beads; remove all plug sockets/light switches from wall and fit chocolate boxes, if the PVA has dried I then apply 2nd coat (3-1) and while this goes tacky get all my mixing gear set up, once tacky mix up 1st guage and put 1st coat on lid and 2 end walls/reveals, clean all mixing tubs etc then when ready trowel up then mix up 2nd coat and apply, once that guage has finished repeat for 2 large walls etc and again apply 2 coats, once all plastering done need to refit/fill/bleed rad; refit all sockets/switches etc; pack all gear away; pack all dust sheets; give room a clean and hoover, in amongst all that would have some lunch and afew brews. Any tips on speeding the above process up would be much appreciated
Yep, i'm a flasher lol I dont have a problem plastering in the nude And neither do my customers!!! Hey maybe i'll stop taking them off..........then again, maybe not. Why change the habits of a lifetime!! :flapper:
Wont touch rads no more after hearing peoples horror stories on here and places!
Sockets, never take em off, undo them and pull them away from the wall but just skim round and screw back up when done (or get customer to if I havent got time)
