    Wire poking out of K-Rend

    Hi, I've just had the rendering on our house done with K-Rend. Overall it looks really good but next to the front door there is a wire poking out which doesn't look nice. Previously this was bare brick and the telephone wire ran across the wall. The loop is just before the hole in the wall...

    K-Rend concern.

    K Rend damp marks?

    Hi - Recently I've noticed random damp patches on my 3 year old K render below a window and near frontdoor entrance. The damp markings seem to be worse when bad weather hits.

    K Rend or Weber

    I’ve recently had a new porch built and with the walls inside the porch now being plastered (previously bare brick) it’s become apparent how bad our rendering is, as every time it rains, the new plaster is soaked from water getting in. We’re now looking at knocking the current rendering off...
