I think you might be the only oneHey any veneer plasterers here in Canada? Or am I the only one!
Actually, that was one of the problems we had selling the system, you need a crew of guys to interest a builder.Hard work but the day flies by once u have a good routine down, I hate going back time and time to coat and sand and blah blah blah. With veneer you can finish (like glass) 500 sq foot per mix which takes roughly 2 hours... If you really pushed it and the job was right your talking 2000 sq foot per man, per day!!
I know the pro's and the con's of the two systems, and I did do a lot of veneer for a while. but toontowntaper just said it right in his last post,,,, you will only get the niche market.Now now toontowntaper!!! Don't be such a sceptic... Sure thing ill tell you where I working and tell you my builders name.. What could go wrong?
Mister 2 buck...veneer and taping aren't even in the same league, veneer is a level 5 finish. It's stronger, higher quality and eliminates sanding. The materials are more expensive but it's made up for in labour costs. I think I would be in a position to compete with any tapers price and still make money.. Just to get the word out. And another point about veneer is that it isn't water soluble like mud, and it adds an hour to the fire rating
And that's a shame since plaster is a much better product .I know the pro's and the con's of the two systems, and I did do a lot of veneer for a while. but toontowntaper just said it right in his last post,,,, you will only get the niche market.
So your going to get the rich, or those that really want plaster. you can't compete head to head with taping:yes:
No question the Veneer will win:thumbsup:Ok... Quick scenario... 216 sq ft bathroom, how much and how Long to complete?
