    The camera just doesn’t show how utterly crap the plastering is.
    Small loft extension after mist coat. How much filling ????? Every wall, ceiling and join was rubbish, utter rubbish.

    3 spires I like the no nonsense approach me Bar Member

    Trouble is I feel sorry and embarrassed on these jobs and tend to take a bit of a hit knowing full well the job will not be as good as it should be.

    A answer would be to shoot the plasterer in the head but this is frowned upon in our society!

    Did you see the plastering before pricing @RonyT?
    I did a refurb last year and put in a 'extras' invoice to sort out some of the plastering as I'm not taking 'a hit', as @3 spires puts it, anymore.
    I can sit at home and earn nothing, don't have to graft sanding some idiots crap work to earn nothing!:archieslap:

    Did I see the plastering before? Yes and no. In the loft extension the builder hadn't reconnected power and I didn't have a site light to view and it was a bit dim up their.
    In hindsight, the builder probably hadn't reconnected power so they couldn't actually see the chit state of the plastering ! That's probably on me and I have made a judgemental error when I priced it.

    The whole job is on a VERY tight time frame as the H/O is heavily pregnant so "it just needs to be finished". They appreciate and accept that the finish isn't going to be perfect, but as always, that doesn't sit well with me. It's my name on what's visible.

    100% agree with your last line and it's sentiment.... I just can't help myself.
    Guess I am my own worst enemy :fool:
