    Help! Dodgy Cowboy Plasterer

    You could've sbr slurry the wall then sand & cement with feb or lime then multi. Or I seen someone use this dry coat from gyproc then multi on top. I did the 1st one on my friends house a year ago after he injected it & it's ok still.

    Render mix?

    Lol. Another spunky :RpS_laugh: I have done a search on other forums & i was under the impression that when renderin using a sand and cement mix, add a little washing up liquid, it will help it stick to the wall! True or not!!
