    Monocouche on render carrier boards

    For people reading this post now and in the future…… DO NOT APPLY MONOCOUCHE OR SCRATCH OR SAND AND CEMENT RENDERS DIRECTLY TO RENDER BOARDS, HOW YOU WOULD ONTO BLOCKWORK !!! These renders are traditionally heavy and brittle and not suitable for direct application to substructures that may...

    Ventec board

    Check with STO, but their board is not a cement based board and will have issues if you use a cement based render on it…. (from memory, their board is a glass and epoxy board, and their renders specifically for the board are all acrylic / mineral based….) If they sent the wrong beads, surely...

    Ventec board

    Sure you will need to use a specific STO product… their board is a bit unique, don’t use a cement based product on it!

    fixing SS mesh to ply

    Seriously bud - sounds silly… but there are billions of people in the world, and while it is unlikely they will all pass your house and see it… getting someone experienced to render the outside it a VERY wise investment!! More people see the outside of your house, so get it done right by someone...

    Cement fiber board

    What’s the board fixed back to? Board for renders are usually fixed to substructures that will move (timber settles, metal expands and contracts) S&C is a hard, heavy and brittle finish… if directly applied to a board, back to a structure that will move, it will crack and fail quickly - maybe...

    Cement board to drywall

    If there is a batten top and bottom, I would take out what boards are already there, fix vertical studs in between the top and bottom studs at max 600mm centres, fill inbetween with insulation and fix the new boards to them… Hope this helps Richard

    Cement board to drywall

    Hi bud Don’t use gypsum dab adhesive with Aquapanel, the suction in Aquapanel pulls the water out the gypsum adhesive so it effects the cure (will work but not as strong) but issue more with moisture from the shower re-activating the gypsum dab adhesive later and tiled boards being heavy might...

    Render on timber?

    hi feel free to drop me a mail and I will send you some details of how to correctly apply a render carrier board to a timber frame As Owls says above, you need a sheathing board and breather membrane to the current structure. The vertical battens tower create a drained and ventilated (top and...

    Render carrier board

    Do not use drywall screws outside... over time they will rust (especially if covered in a render) will end up with rust spots coming through, and maybe have the soffit boards fall if the corrode too much...

    Determining the dormer render finish

    Hello buddy what @themucky1 has said is correct.... now that you have the roof tiles on, the only way to make good is by taking off the boards to do the remedial works - you really MUST do this before you put a render on.... Not withstanding the board issues (go search MGO boards - you have...

    Aqua panel question..

    Knauf Aquapanel boards are NOT waterproof - they are water resistant (un-effected by water)... they will suck up water, then let it go again without being effected at all also - DO NOT use gypsum dab adhesive... same issues as gypsum skim... ....use tile adhesive and drill and rawl plug and...

    Aqua panel question..

    Several problems buddy.... 1 - that is the 6mm thick flooring product on a wall... too flexible for a wall (even if multi layered) 2 - traditional gypsum skims are not suitable, even after priming. The boards have VERY high suction and gypsum skims need the moisture to stay in them for so long...

    Rendering over dpc on a new build cottage

    Don’t bridge across the DPC with cladding or render. Whatever is below the DPC could and will get wet and may allow the water / moisture to wick up above the DPC - hence the comments above about breaking the render with movement or back to back beads at the DPC Also, not all renders and or...
