Hello

Just need a bit of advice if ok.

My builder has said that the decorator will finish off the plastering and thinks its fit for purpose.

We have decorated ourselves and noticed patches all over.

I have attached a couple of the many photos we have.


Do you think we have a case to get sorted ?

Many Thanks

That is not an acceptable finish, who did it, plasterer or builders mate from down the pub?

The number of times I've heard this one "The decorator will sort it"
Your plasterer needs to sort it out, we're busy enough as it is fixing other trades with the same attitude!

The odd little spot here and there I would deem acceptable for a plasterer to miss and a decorator to sort out, if you are doing a whole room or several rooms it is not unreasonable for there to be a couple of spots that need some attention. However what you are showing there is a bodge job.

That's a really poor finish, we had issues similar to yours with a plasterer before and he filled the imperfections with joint filler. After that I learnt how to do it myself and got a better finish on the second try!

That is rubbish plastering, there is about half a day to a days work at least for the decorator to fill the holes and rub down even then it will not look very good! :angryfire:

I disagree toolbox a good decorator will have that looking perfect in a day (or maybe two)

The point is that the decorator shouldn't have to make good another "so called" trades work.
