    Just make sure wherever your working hasn't got aircon on at full chat. Makes the skim craze like mad, I did some offices last summer and was chuffed it was nice and cool in there, by last wipe it was crazed to hell, had to reskim again following day with air con turned off, pulled all the moisture out and dried too fast

    I know a builder that will be in the pub today. He says you can't work in this heat. Anyone that dose is an idiot he's says. I'm at work. Just about to skim with no fan.

    I'd imagine that's a recipe for disaster. Had doors and windows open the other day and it dried it out too quick. It was peeling on the last trowel. Today I was meant to be on a tower doing a velux window opening (size of some box rooms) and decided I might just take today off lol

    I'd think thays because you had a 'through breeze' pushing air in one end with it being sucked out the other.
    With a fan in the room the same air is just being re-circulated.

    Thats my theory anyway :envidioso

    Nor do I generally but window plus door with massive breeze the other day defiantly dried it too much. It peeled even using a nelaflex2
