I’m doing a thin coat silicone system. Wasn’t sure if I should stop bead under soffit, as is all over the place, or should I just drop 10mm and level through that way ? Also do you you tend to stop bead round everything, how about going into a flashing for example, or quoins ? Ok...
Hi all, I’ve been using Weberplast and k-rend acrylic top coats which are fine. But it’s expensive, any cheaper products that are just as good? If not where’s cheapest place to buy the Weber or k-rend ? Why I’m at it,I usually use lac for backing coat, again any cheaper version, and what u lot...

I know I should get right colour I’m asking if using white on magnolia background will show ? If I can get away with perfect as haven’t got local stockist for beads and I have white on site !

I've got a customer with Timber framed extension with aqua panel on! Wants pebble dashed to match the house, surely this will crack. Should I tape joint or lay a coat of rend aid on with mesh first , will that help, all suggestions welcome.
Well its a mixture some on block some on brick some on painted so need to mesh i guess. Nightmare think ive under priced oops. do u think for 35 a metre im better of leaving it? could i maybe put a scratch coat of render on, then top coat with k rend to keep material price down?
That takes the piss people working for that are screwing the game up, your right can do a hundred metres a day for a bit, but f that. Other professions they have standard rates in our game everyone is undercutting everyone else. get what u pay i think.
Doing a slurry dash job, does it matter if scratch coat is totally dry before slurry, also backing coat is 4 to 1 i was going to do top coat 5:1:1 plus bucket of stones does that sound about right. cheers
