Thank you. Still don't really know what I'm asking of another plaster..."fix this please?" Or "re skim this please"? Probably one of those things where they'll have to see it though, right?
You've seen the state he left it in the first place, how would he be able put it right? He obviously doesnt realise how s**t he is no1 should leave a finish like that + expect to be paid for it.Without being given the opportunity to correct work though, there is no right to ask for money back
Damp course was done by partners uncle, he's a builder. No guarantee as far as I'm aware. The floor was sinking so he went under the floorboards and the joists were damp n rotting. He replaced joists, put some kind of membrane or something down (I think?) and asked us to take plaster off a meter up the wall and injected damp stuff into the walls.Why didn't the damp course company do the plastering ? Did you get a guarantee ? If yes then it's been invalidated

I would have thought your partner's uncle would have known a plasterer? If you don't know one, or your friends can't recommend one, you can try sites like MyBuilder. The tradesmen on there have to do a good job otherwise they get negative reviews and no more work. It's as simple as that. Choose one with a good track record if you go down that route. DO NOT use Rated People. They are hated people because they are shite and unscrupulous and do no checks.
Funny you should say that, one of the three quotes I mentioned earlier was one of his mates...yet we still went with the wrong one. Mainly on account of his wait time. Now feel absolutely ridiculous going back to him...if I was him, I'd laugh at us!
Loving the song on itKate, if you can't pay out again,you could try doing it yourself. It won't be a great finish but would be better that what he's left. Take a look at this guy's series of videos - the plastering ones not the clothing. He runs through the plastering process and makes it simple and self explanatory. Here's a taster:
But if I were you, I would wait for the plasterer you mentioned. Or try a highly rated one on MyBuilder. They won't be laughing at you. How could you know? If anything, they'll make sure it's a spot on job. like they should anyway.
Should get a selfie of him next to his dog or something I say..Aye, I want to see a picture of gps's big stupid head next to the forum, he demands it of others so it shouldn't be a problem.
