    Sponge finish coloured render?

    We float and sponge k-rend k1. Rubs up lovely if you catch it right just keep water off it and the colour stays uniform.

    Rendering over pebbledash

    If you need advice on prepping for render you shouldn't be doing the job.

    Patchy/drippy KRend, what went wrong?

    What product is that? It looks like lime render with formed corners. Was the house stone originally? If they've done that over block that's wild unless you wanted it not to look modern and wanted a cottage look? It's a strange one

    Patching thin coat

    Never seen a properly seemeless thincoat patch. Some much better than others but it's never 100%.

    K Rendered borders in garden

    I suggest you tell the builders who got this joker in not to use him again he is not a renderer.

    Obviously the rendagrip manufacturer won't stand by going over painted substrates there's too many variables and you'd have clowns trying to sue them after rendering over flaking paint. Grind, wire brush, jet wash and whatever paint is still on the wall rendagrip over that.

    Roughcasting is rough.

    That's shocking.

    The f**k**g sun

    It's a b*****d for sure but it's a hand finish it's never 100% perfect in glancing sunlight.

    Basecoat dragging not flattening

    What a miserable b*****d. There's plenty of Plasterers out there who struggle with polymer basecoats so you my friend have no chance.

    Its a new craze mostly for younger people to show off their new build shite house they overpaid for.

    Not excusing that work as it does look particularly bad BUT these lights are a joke. Some downlights don't effect the look of the render if they're out a few inches more on the soffit but these f**k**s are too close to the wall. Shine a bright light directly down substrate internally or...

    Flaking roughcast

    Insufficient overhang. Not your problem.

    Celtic park last night

    This dump is looking more like barlinnie prison by the day with the celtic board erecting fencing around the parimeter to stop the animals getting to the players and coaches. Best fans in the world my arse. 10 is gone

    Wet dash

    K-rend silicone wet dash is superb. Takes a bit of getting used to right enough mix it too stiff and it looks horrendous

    Ecorend - advice needed

    Feel sorry for the builder. You're on here behind his back asking what its like, why not chat with the builder about it?

    Corner beads

    Suppliers would sell you 50mm beads if they could get away with it. We use the smallest bead we can get away with, less work, less material.

    Self employment, is it really worth it?

    It is worth it to some people, not to others. Keep your prices high and your work perfect and you won't have any pressure. Its definitely not for everyone I know guys out busting their balls for beer/coke money and wonder why they don't have a pot to piss in. Like most things in life you need...

    Pebble dashing

    the stones we get come in 25kg bags already washed we just load the scaffold with them.

    Pebble dashing

    People often think of dash as that horrible brown stuff you get on 70s houses but the new systems and colours are actually quite nice when done properly.

    Pebble dashing

    Glasgow pal dry dash is very popular here for its longevity.

    Pebble dashing

    You're right I've not a got a clue about dashing. Only do between 2 and 4 houses per month as well as countless other bits and bobs.

    Identify the stones!

    Huntington beige or harvest

    That little notched out drip on the cope is where the water pools and drops from. Ideally you want that a few inches out from the render. 90% jobs I go to the coping are too narrow.

    Garden wall render. help!!

    bad scratch coat and insufficient overhang. The fact you’re asking if you can do It yourself and stating it doesn’t have to be perfect tells me you’ll be wasting some renderers time soon requiring a free quotation which will invariably be too expensive.

    They will say it's been stored damp. Has it?

    Really upset with my rendered house...

    Shitty situation made worse by the drama queens on here. If the guy is apologetic then I'm sure it will get sorted you hold all the aces as you haven't paid anything yet. Relax.
