    Mono on painted brick and 2 year old exposed blocks

    I think it's the micro gobetis they used, they used it at the front of the house on the same paint, straight onto it no basecoat, been on 2 year almost and is sound

    Got a render job coming up, half painted brick and half block work that's about 2 year old, a gang of renderes did the front and 2 gables and they used some kind of red paint on the painted brick, any one know what it could be ?

    Heard people say treat it like mono and I bar it back but I didn't have enough to do it that way

    Base coat finish

    When I spatted it I didn't think it looked flat enough for my liking, just kept leaving lines, but then again I don't know how well tc covers any imperfections etc, so just ended up sponge floating it, he'd got some white base coat but realised he wouldn't have enough so orderd more but they...

    I knew they did a 1mm but didn't realise that .5 of a mm would make much difference

    Base coat finish

    Around 40sm I sprayed a good 30sm but he didn't order enough so couldn't do 1 side (around 10sm) which is the side we hand balled on

    Normal float ? Like you use for s+c ? It was fassa a96 I was using, things like chewing gum when hand applying

    Base coat finish

    Always got the impression it has to be cock on, does thin coat cover more s**t then you think ? Always thought with it being put ok that thin it will show everything

    Base coat finish

    Marvellous, thanks, I guessed it was leaving it too long, had formed a skin, some areas I wet with spray bottle then spatted but still wasn't happy with it.

    First time doing tc, got base coat on but it was tearing and dragging when spatting, can you leave it with a sponge float finish? It's for a mate, warned him several times I havnt done it before haha he's not bothered and wanted me to do it

    I'm not entirely sure, he's at Dr's on Monday to speak to a mental health nurse, I just hope he tells her everything.

    I can't let him know I know, mother would hit the roof, he's told her not to tell anyone, if he knew I know he wouldn't trust her again.
