There was a decorator on Twitter asking for a bag of multi.

The shortage is going to make it very difficult for domestic spreads if the lockdown is lifted in a week or so.

Anyone buying at that rate wants there F*****g heads checked.

Anyone selling at that rate wants a glass smashing twisting and repeat straight through there kite!

Presumably the cost will be passed onto the customer. Given that they're inviting randoms into their houses in the current circumstances they deserve the bill they're getting and more.

You can't blame people for wanting to keep food on the table. Deciding you want plastering done in the middle of a global pandemic on the other hand is utter madness.

Everyones going to be in the s**t site & domestic likewise it will knock on to other trades also!

Its ok were going to get a politician pc bullshit update from British Gypsum on Friday.

Merchants havent had correct stock for 2 years I dread to think how bad it will be!

80% of domestics i do,dont involve other trades..
So in my case it will be the individual plasterer and customer who will suffer until stocks go back up. Cant see stocks being up for weeks if not months.

When Smiths open I'll see if they can deliver a pallet to me. If they will I'll post a competition on here and the winner gets the pallet.

Not sure what the competition will be though. Last man (or woman) standing maybe?

I bought loads on the Friday that the schools got closed. Still have about 30 bags and 30 boards but that won’t last long. Luckily I’ve got loads of mono to do but now the cunting weather has turned typically English

You missed a trick there pal. Should have said yes, rolled up and cleared the lot out and left him £3:65 a bag so he couldn't say you nicked it. (y)

I heard for a reliable source start of June we will start to see trickle of bags whatever that means :frenetico:

Hi first post here, I managed to get 40 bags (£8.50 a bag) on Friday was a 2hr round trip but couldn’t get any elsewhere for a reasonable price. Branch manager said he has 2 more pallets of multi probably all sold now but worth a shot lads. NDI in Birmingham is where I got it from.

I had a customer ring me up last week begging me to plaster 2 bedrooms I said you can't afford me she was like why I said the materials will cost twice as much as the Labour at the minute, I told her to stop being impatient and I'll do it once it blows over as I only live 10 mins told her it's very unlikely any plasterers will work on a domestic at this point but she's probably still rang around
