    Roughcast Ritmo

    There's no green increments on the back Tom. We had a new R/S on just for the Roughcast and it was a bit tight so machine would JAM. In the end,we mixed up in gorilla tubs and poured it into the hopper which worked well.

    Cracked flow tube

    It happened to me when the inlet to the hopper was blocked.I didn't realise this at the time and turned the water right up putting too much pressure within the tube causing fissure cracks everywhere.

    Weber Pral M - Large Patch of Different Colour Render

Pitfalls for over rendering would be stop beads on external corners on view,also scaffolding,'re bead, Rendaid keycoat and Mono top coat. Also consider if window reveals can be...

    Weber Pral M - Large Patch of Different Colour Render

    Painting the elevation with Weber sil p will solve this problem as it doesn't put a sheen on as other masonry paints can do. The texture won't change as it's basically an external colourwash. If you Google Rendit, they specialise in this sort of repair.

    Needs to be a render carrier board ideally.You can't render onto ply,it would need to have S/S mesh (not Galv) to accept the render,also building paper over plywood first.
