    Full mesh coverage, or just stress areas? Johnstones silicon enhanced

    Full mesh coverage, or just stress areas? Johnstones silicon enhanced

    Just think that all this mesh n thin coat is a good earner for the suppliers. I drive past 2 houses that I rendered traditionally 25 years ago and they look 100 times better than the krend/mono/thin coat houses down the road. I would scratch n top any day of the week over these new render systems

    Full mesh coverage, or just stress areas? Johnstones silicon enhanced

    Why can’t you just scratch and top coat like the good old days? mesh any cracks. Think there is too much money involved with extra material that isn’t needed

    K-Rend concern.

    Just a personal choice. I wouldn’t use it as I don’t like the product. Over bricks I would of gone down a more traditional method. What reason is the plasterer giving for the difference in colour? Looks like damp patches in your picture.
