Flooring wasn't laid level and had high spots, walls have bulges in them and some were meant to be done prior to handover and weren't. Patching hasn't worked, so now…

Our base render was completed not long after brickwork and top colour coat was applied week of pci so there was no damage done.

Our render was done pretty much straight away but the final colour coat was week before we got keys so it's not damaged
