Just had a job done and it's not turning out well, so looking for some opinions/advice about what to do.
Plastering job included skimming one of the bedroom walls, as well as boarding & skimming ceiling.
It looked ok, but when I was applying the mist coat the plaster started to come away from the wall. Plasterer came back and (easily) pulled a large circle off. The painted round all the edges with PVA and came back the next day to plaster in the patch.
Question 1 - Is this satisfactory? Is the quality of finish going to suffer?
Upon his advice I lightly sanded down around the patch and have applied 2 mist coats. It seems like there is a fair amount of exposed PVA on the wall now and the paint is not covering it well. I'm also starting to get uneven patches - some with a solid coat of paint and some still looking dirty.
Question 2 - Any advice? Should I worry about it?
Feel like I've paid a small fortune for this little job and I though I was paying to get an excellent finish. I can hopefully use responses here to argue under the 'guarantee' I was given and get what I've paid for. Thanks in advance.
