This is obviously always a topic of debate and dick swinging and there are factors that differ on jobs but as a rule when doing reskims how many ceilings/walls are people putting on at a time? I have always got by by doing ceiling and couple reveals then hitting opposite walls but seeing lads on here and on fb putting on a whole room in a set and thinking where am I going wrong? I wouldn’t say I am slow nor am
I the fastest but hitting a room a day on price my way would make some serious dollar

One or two walls. I normally do all the reveals and small slithers in one go at the end, 7 or more areas. Can be a c**t but just feels better, I just get out the margins and the "Wee Nela" and run around like a loony ! Works for me mate.

Least amount of meterage for the most amount of cash is the way forward.

Always put on what you can handle in a set no more no less some spreads are faster than others that’s just life I can put on a ceiling and Maybe a wall or 2 on the average sized room I would never try to hit a room out in one gauge as I know I couldn’t do it but even now as I’ve got older I’m just happy banging a ceiling on and doing the reveals then the walls afterwards if I can be asked to do all of them one hit if not I just do them the next day

It's the ones that post on Instagram 'quick set on the way home' and post a room fully skimmed or a chimney breast lined and skimmed that boils my blood. F**king pricks. Makes me look like an amateur taking 5 days over a room.

Feel like calling a couple of them and asking them if they could skim jobs for me on the way home lol

Half a million new people coming into the country on an annual basis says this cannot happen.
