Today, i have been out of the house all day and the platerer was on his own.
I've come home to find:
-1.he has used plaster bond to "dot and dab" the plasterboard at the window reveals - he ran out of plasterboard adhesive so used bonding coat instead (all others using board adhesive as standard). will this provide enough strength for the boards as the window reveals?
2. He is going to skim my staircase/landing, of which has swirly pimpled artex. He was meant to be using plaster bond to provide a base layer for multifinish.
While skimming wall yesterday he had some left over multifinish, and just trowelled this onto the artex up the stairs (instead of using bonding coat) - also used no PVA, so multi straight onto the artex. It's dried and cracked all over.
Please can someone confirm that my understanding is that he should 100% be using the bonding coat, to 'take the height' off the artex?
Do i approach him about this?
