Spraying does take a fair degree of skill and the mistakes with runners due to overspray are almost impossible to eradicate. Also the cleaning of an airless sprayer is a tedious task before you leave it back to the hirer. Don't think of buying a cheap sprayer and taking on a house.

Best to buy the paint and to pay a painter by the day to roller the whole hose white.

Also wait until the skim is well dried out as the undercoat won't take and will be forever flaking on you.

What sort of fee would an architect charge for designing a house? Do they charge per square foot or what way does it work?

My extension fee was 350 and I saved that twice at least when getting a contractor.

Looking some advice on damp. Had a small patch of damp appear on an interior wall and when I stripped back the paper its a lot worse than  i thought. We had gas installed last year and this room in particular (kitchen) used to be freezing but is now really warm. A friend reckons it is rising damp and i will need to get the walls chipped back, injected and replastered.  :'( :'(

Have a specialist coming round to look at it but has anyone any idea what sort of quote i should be expecting. Wall is about 8 feet long. ALso are there any alternatives?

Thanks in Advance

Yes, a single external wall, about 18ft long with 2 chimney breasts, plaster stripped to 1m, injected, plaster replaced and the job certified.

What way do I go about getting Septic tank, electric, water applications sent in? I can't find much online about it.  Are there any other applications I could submit while waiting for planning to come back?
