    Like the title said, My wife is up in Edinburgh at the moment as her mother hasn't been well of late.She phoned me up today and said,Next doors house is getting dashed (Or Harled if you live up there) and the contractor has been round and told my wife that they are knocking the old coating off next door and re dashing it. But he said that the dash on her moms side is a bit boxy and they think that some might come off when they start knocking next doors off. And they said it is not up to them to make it good after!! Well I think they should re-do anything that comes off her moms side and make good .What do you lads think?

    I think there making excuses for any damage before they even start work Roy get her to take pics of it before they start if any damage is done it will be recorded and they have to put it right if possible record them while they do it I would

    I think they should be held responsible too. As Steve says, take some pics or even a video. Is this a terraced house Roy or what? Even if they make a neat, straigh vertical cut first, and then remove the old "harling", fit a stop bead against the cut edge, then finish harling neatly to the stop bead. I think they just want to get going at any cost, and are not worried about next door. Can't quite picture the scenario though Roy,, terraced, semi-detached?

    Thanks guys The area is up in Clermiston and they used to be "corpy" houses I think they are all semi's (2 in a block) Her sister has bought the house as it was the family house where all of the family stays when they all come down to Edin. Or in our case go up to Edin.
