Water from the bathroom is leaking through the joints on the tile. Unfortunately you have to stop the source of water before any remedy could be done to the plaster.
Even if the plaster is totally scraped off, (which is compulsory) and undercoat applied to seal it, water would still find another weak spot to escape.
I should be promoting my own product, so I won't name any brand. but you could get a gallon very good quality paint in the range of N2500 in the market and get J.k white cement in 1 kg pack and mix it with the paint to form paste and use trowel to apply it to till the joint on the tiles.
The quantity and quality of the binder in such paint would be sufficient with the cement to form a waterproof grout between the joints.
The jk cement in 1kg is preferable to the other kg rates except for the 40 kg pack.
The 2, 5 and 10kg in sacks are mostly repacked here and are full of filler. besides, they are able to absorb moisture in the air and weaken.
nice observation and solution bossman .

I'm sorry I can't be of help here. I only have the basic idea of the setting process of the plasters having actually produced the pre mixed powdered form of both white cement and gypsum based screeding material packaged in dry form in sack. The spread of the product was low and doesn't last on storage so I phased it out.
It was in the course of the production that I researched and applied the various materials to study their setting characters and properties.
I could only hazard a guess based on the best ratio of aggregate to cement or gypsum to give best plaster if I knew the quantity of filler in the paint.
I do supply pop emulsion strictly on a commercial quantity to distributors and over the course of time, I get screeders to help me test for the drying time of the paint with gypsum powder. my observation of the mixing ratio from the sample quantity is usually mixing the paint to the consistency of regular emulsion and adding the gypsum into it while mixing to give a light paste.
pop emulsion is usually very thick here in lagos hence the need to thin it. but if the pop paint is light, then I assume it would be used like that.
If I were to do a screeding, I would also contact the screeders and go by the materials they quote since that's their area of expertise that they do constantly. you could only at best supervise or have someone reliable ensure all the materials are bought and used or accounted for if you are buying the materials.
The outcome would indicate if they didn't compromise on material.
As for adding binder, the ideal ratio is 3 part water to 1 part binder and used to mix cement and aggregate mix. I think 2 kg or roughly 2 liters of binder per drum of paint is ideal to be mixed with the cement or gypsum powder.
The screeders also do say a bag of gypsum powder can require 2 to 3 drums of paint. mixing with 2 drums paint would be stronger than with 3 drums of pop paint and using sufficient binder would also make significant difference.
I hope you can be able to make sense and pick points from my disjointed explanation.
I was recollecting from memory and typing them as I remember.


@ the bolded. The disjointed points are so much perfectly jointed that I can't think of a better way to join them. Thanks a million.
You did make sense even as you tried so well not to sound technical (our layman understanding is at a low level). grin
I hereby rest our case as I adjourn this class sir, having treated the topic SCREEDING so well that I believe all students like us are better informed.
May God bless you sir.
Kindly go to the academics and impact more on generations. My kobo and shillings opinion sir. tongue

This is what l think

- You have shown a strong open-mindedness, about the secrets of your trade.
- You have provided help to those who need it, without first asking them to PM or 'send me a mail' or other kind of secret stuff that others do.
- You have displayed a very deep knowledge of what you do
- You manufacture your own products and others have attested to the quality they have
All the above shows that you can be trusted fully.

So, why would you now deprive all of us the benefit of knowing your Product's Name?

I hereby demand, on behalf of everyone here that YOUPLEASE MENTION THE NAME OF YOUR PRODUCTS. angry
That is 'we' demanding for it, and as such, does not constitute an "advert".

Seconded and agreed Sir. I and few friends have used his paints in our projects so I can attest to the good quality.
Just mentioning the name of the product will constitute advertisements.
And he does have some other thread of his own on his paints, so he can post the links here without breaking the rules.
Thank you.

I'm on whatsapp. 07082715846. Also on Facebook and IG.
I had a registered business but didn't register the brand name. I assumed once the company was registered, I could give the products any name grin.
By the time I was wise to realize the brand name had to be registered, the crown wasn't available. so I had to go for the available one with the closest meaning to it.

With all due respects Bro, and as a bona fide Enugu resident, a small duplex and a 3 storeyed building of flats may not fit into the same land if the plot size is only 90 x 60 ft. Except if the flats is not a double wing of flats which should mean about 8 flats of 2 bedrooms.

For one, the buildings cannot fit into the land talk less of park and living space. Soakaway tanks and possible water tanks. I suggest you get an architect to do you a sketch of what is possible before you move any further, lands are very costly, so ensure you make the best use of it.
Good luck.
Oga Spyder, your advice have been very useful to me in the past. So, I need your help again.
Sir, help me with a rough estimate from foundation to lintel, normal size 2/2bedroom flats, excluding the decking. It's on a solid red soil in Benin city. Thanks in advance.

Even if, the cheapest and 'fakest' DB is about 27k.. Add labour of 25k. That's already about 50k. The remaining 50k for wires?

Let's assume No AC, no Water Heater just lighting and sockets. It's still impracticable.

Well, at 12'Likes' - 0'Share', it is obvious where the verdict lies.
This is a testament to your good works, in the last few years.
I can only say "keep it Up and dont let it get into your head" because "Success builds Complacency".


Regal paints is also a good name though a google search on it links one to other companies/products.

Thank you very much sir. I can't afford to be complacent because reputation in business difficult to build and sustain but very easy to be destroyed.
I can assure you that Regal paint is strictly registered to me. There could be some companies with regal as appellate though, I doubt if there is another regal paint besides mine if the registration process is efficient.
it took several attempts by my lawyer with different suggested names before we could get it as an available option.

How much would you consider reasonable to pay someone to build this exact type of closet. Considering type of wood, Nothing fancy, just modest.

My peoples, your advice needed please. Below is an estimate of tiling a 2 storey of 4 x 3 bedrooms flats building located in Sango. Just your box-standard 4 flats of 3 bedroom flats with living room/dinning, kitchen, master bedroom with en-suite and small store. Nothing fancy. The costs of the tiles is average, and will change depending on design/colour/quality one eventually goes for. I just need your advice more on the quantity of materials quoted and labour charge. Do they seem reasonable? Many thanks!
