Should we be disappointed with this job?

We've just had an attic wall plastered, and we've noticed a few issues with the finish. Some of these may be due to the plasterer following the frame of the window.

1. Plaster line does not match with window

2. The plaster is at more of an angle on one side of the window than the other

3. Poor straight line finish at the top of the window

This is shocking, how they get away with this ? You should have metal edge of the bead visible all the way round, nicely wiped to create sharp corner. Same with internal corners, looks like they never used twitcher in their life...

Looks like beads are on there to me, zoom in
About 8mm coat applied to try and bring walls flush. Joker
Sand it, fill it, sand it, fill it, sand it, paint it
Why is it wet? Is the velux flashing correctly fitted?

Tbh, it actually looks a perfectly decent finish on everything other than around the velux. Did you board it yourself? It's not really any justification to leave the work as s**t as that around the edges but you can't plaster that badly if it was boarded well.

The beads are out of line by about 10mm on the top right corner, no plasterer could of done it that badly unless the boarding was s**t imo and

Yeah, sort of agree, but who ever done the board work should use angle finder to use off the velux frame, leaving them equal...

Don’t know enough of what was there. What was asked for and what was payed. Don’t seem to want to say he much was payed. If it was bad you could of easily spent half a day sorting the revels out. I have done that before. But if the dish isn’t there you won’t send the time
