    Cement needs time to cure and really harden. So a few days after laying can often be still easy to take down. I think in hotter weather stuff goes off faster.

    Appreciate the update.

    That guy is a clown. You'd have done a better job yourself. If worse comes to worse, get yourself the 'Bricky' tool and crack on with it until you're comfortable laying to a consistent 10mm mortar bed yourself.

    I was always going to do it myself but got a bonus from work and to speed things up I thought I would hire as its mostly blockwork so fairly straight forward
