    4-months in plaster won’t dry

    No amount of hacking off and re plastering is going to fix that. It's Victorian which means it should be dry as they knew what they were doing when building. Wooden floors should be ventilated by air bricks or metal grills. Usually front and back of property but not always. Check these haven't...

    Render times

    New builds, a few days. A few weeks then to do it properly.... Lol I just don't want the wall settling and causing the render to crack. The time to wait then makes me decide if it does need to wait till April... Lol It's going to be a sand and cement render by the way

    Render times

    Hi everyone. Got a garden wall to render but the brick layer has had to do some extensive work to repair after removing old render. Just wondered how long new brick walls should be left to dry before rendering? I should know this but in twenty years I've never had to render over a new...

    Freeflo out of stock

    Thanks guys. The reason I ask about the Waterproofer is I noticed cement one do a integral Waterproofer and freeflo. The integral Waterproofer days is suitable for rendering. Just wondered what the difference was. One more Waterproof than the other? And yes - I like freeflo. I use it all the...

    Freeflo out of stock

    Done a rendering job of an external garage. Freeflo was not in stock so used sika rendermix. Well impressed with the mix. A dream to spread but rubbing up was difficult. To sticky in my opinion. What do you guys think? Also, is integral Waterproofer an option for rendering verses Freeflo...

    Curved ceilings

    I keep hearing about this speedskim thing on a pole. last time I saw it used it was crap. A supposed flat ceiling ended up with a slight roll around the edge. I'm guessing it was operator error??? I've always just used my trusty 13" marshletown for all ceiling rolls - never had any problems...

    Seaside mix

    The house was built with patio door but it's been replaced. It looks like it has been fitted too far in the reveal and the cavity covered with a 3" wide plastic trim. It seems to let in water. That's one of my jobs to remove and re-fit the patio door. The top of the door does not have a drip...

    Seaside mix

    Sounds like not a bad idea but never used that stuff before. Touched on hydrated stuff with not much luck. Also, it's a terrace so I've got to angle grind two straight lines down each a joining property. Would lime render inbetween two S & C work?

    Seaside mix

    Right It's made by Weber. Used some of that stuff a couple of years ago with Mark Ross. Are you talking all rendaid or scratch with it?

    This is a new house built in 1984 which is already rendered which is failing in a spectacular fashion!
