    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...

    With the old brickwork, it may need it to be able breath, so a breathable scratch or lime render may be more suitable... modern thin coat renders are more hardy and lower maintenance, but will seal the brickwork in... Renders all need maintenance, but you do get what you pay for.....
