Plastering Question

Would a tradesman use one coat plaster

May be a bit late in this answer but as a plasterer of 40 years i would almost never use one coat plaster the procedure is float and set floating being backing coat and then setting the top coat i may use it in an emergency but i would know how to handle the mix as would any good plasterer but one coat i think is basically for amateurs or diy and they will struggle to get a finish,thanks Barry

Totaly agree with Barry . At college never used it and the hundreds of building sites, never used it.
