    Wallpaper on one accent wall

    Gary arrived relatively promptly and was courteous enough. He prepped the wall perfectly fine. After hanging a second vertical strip of wallpaper, it was very obvious that a) it had not been applied correctly (lots of bubbling across the paper) and b) he had not pattern matched the paper. I asked Gary to fix the issue since it was not pattern matched to which he replied “this isn’t going to work” and decided to down tools and leave. He has also ruined a roll of wallpaper that he has not compensated for. He agreed the pattern wasn’t matched then quickly backtracked. I appreciate sometimes things don’t work out and I have never written negative feedback about another workman on here. But please stay away from Gary. He even then started to comment that “MyBuilder seems to attract a certain type of client” then went on to say they tend to be cheap and too high on expectation. Frankly, I don’t take well to being called cheap (never negotiated with him) and I certainly don’t take well to tradesmen not making whole on their agreed works. No doubt he will comment here in response to say I was standing two cm away from the wall and only then could I make a judgement, but equally this is my home and he has agreed to undertake works to do it correctly. If you can’t do that, don’t do it at all. Please stay away from Gary and choose someone else.

    Replace external downpipe

    I contacted Genty on behalf of my Aunt who had a problem with a drainpipe. He went round to check it out and give a quote, but it was something he could do there and then. My Aunt was very happy and I'd like to thank Genty for his professionalism and advice he gave and for resolving the problem straight away. I would recommend and contact him again if needed.

    Painting the outside front window frames

    Klodjan did a fantastic job painting the outside window frames of our first floor flat. We are very pleased with the outcome and of the whole experience of dealing with him. Klodjan was very fair with the price - particularly based on the high standard of work that he delivered too. Klodjan came to give me a quote within a couple of days of posting the job and started the job a couple of days later. The work was completed over 2 days - this was done without any fuss and he was very accommodating when I informed him that I wouldn't be in for one of the days. Klodjan left the place spotless afterwards - I would definitely recommend using him. Thanks for a great job!

    Hi novice_40, firstly, best of luck with your project - i hope you enjoy it. newly plastered walls/ceilings always need to be suitably sealed before painting begins (otherwise the paint will sit on the surface & come off very easily). you can do this either by applying a couple of emulsion 'mist coats' (dilute an initial solution of 60:40 water to emulsion, then a second mist coat with the ratios reversed, to thicken the coverage but still watery enough to allow it to continue to sink into the plaster below). or, as tom suggests, you can buy a purpose made primer. if the plasterer has 'over polished' the walls, this latter option will be the best, as the plaster will not allow the mist coat to seep in & adhere properly. if you have a large area/several walls, then the most cost effective way for you will be the mist coats - these are industry standards and a perfectly acceptable method. ordinary white emulsion is suitable and both affordable & easily available. start misting from the lowest point on the plaster and move up & out with your roller. the mist coat dries rapidly & this bottom up method stops you getting fat splashes of paint onto the plaster. cut in around the edges with a brush. if the ceiling is also bare, then progress onto the ceiling. within the hour, your walls will be ready for the second mist coat. apply this in the same order as the first. a word of caution: even with the best intentions, mist coats can involve a bit of splashing, so make sure your flooring is protected & the sockets temporarily turned off & covered. once the 2 mist coats have fully dried you can more easily assess the plasterer's handiwork. use a spatula to fill any minor dents & give these a light sanding, once cured. anything major & get the plasterer back to resolve it. you don't want to be sanding down large areas of plaster, as this will cause a rough & spoilt finish that will need copious filling & sanding to put right. now, use a proper water-based wood primer for your bare woodwork - for the same reasons as you need to seal fresh plaster. a primer-undercoat is perfectly suitable - though you will need 2 coats: one to prime, a second to undercoat. a third coat is optional, but we'll get to that in a mo. alternatively, you can buy 2 separate paints: one a specified wood primer & the second a specified undercoat. whilst the primer should be water-based, the undercoat can be oil-based - though only if your satinwood is also oil-based. this method can improve the longevity of the finish. once your primer/first layer of primer-undercoat is dry, caulk your woodwork. next, move back to your ceiling/walls. this time begin with the ceiling (either silk or matt are suitable finishes - but silk is a more reflective surface that draws the eye & can accentuate any imperfections). get your first coat on. cut in free-hand, moving your brush from 1/2 inch away from the corner inwards towards the join as your hand steadies & finds the line. don't try to leap straight into the corner unless you've got a steady hand. whether you cut in before or after rollering is down to personal preference. i prefer beforehand as it avoids a visible 'tram line' created by dragging your brush through a rollered section. whichever you choose, ensure you keep a wet edge (ie: don't allow the paint to dry between cutting in & rollering). allow the edges to dry, then move down to the walls. get your first coat of dulux endurance on. cut in free-hand. once dried, repeat the process for your second coats. if you are prepared to wait up to a couple of days between coats (dep. on drying conditions) for the paint to fully cure, you can use (yellow) frog tape to help you achieve a clean line between surfaces. be very careful when removing it however, as this can pull the paint back off if it isn't fully cured. finally, give your woodwork a light sanding to remove any splashes of paint & nibs of rough wood fibres. ideally, apply another undercoat, to improve the coverage & durability, then (when dry) apply your satinwood top coat. again, if you're happy the walls have cured sufficiently, frog tape can give you a razor sharp line where the satinwood meets the emulsion. take care when peeling it away. there you have it! any questions, feel free to give me a holla. meantime, i hope this helps. happy painting! best, alix james decorators

    Hi there, i am a painter and decorator by trade with plastering and tiling skills. when new plaster is first applied i always cover it with a layer of pva first. once this has dried i will apply the first coat and let that dry for 24 hrs. the second coat is then applied. over the last however many years, this method has always produced a long lasting finish. dulux is a good paint product but i am starting to favor some of the crown products that are now being released. if i can be of any help then please feel free to contact me.

    Hi, a mist coat is essential when preparing fresh plaster for decoration. diy stores will sell you an expensive product specifically for this purpose, but any light colour of water based emulsion is absolutely fine, so using up spare magnolia is a good idea. i mix up the paint and water in a bucket, and apply with a large brush to minimise the splatter. i know others use rollers, which is quicker, but also messier! once the mist coat has been applied, you cando any filling required, and then get on with the emulsion of choice. i hope this has answered your question. regards, david clarke (ds clarke building services)

    Dulux or crown paints (trade) are the best the rest are a rip off. wickes gloss in white will yellow after a short time. leyland paints supply wicks.
