getting house done for free wetherby system
what a mess, render everywhere except on the walls
day 16, end terraced house not a mansion
bows in bead, revels not straight
through them off the job today
the owner of the firm came round to try and sort the problem out
this is a test job for the firm to get bba approved,called the wetherby rep out
the owner of the firm came back at the same time
told by wetherby the spec is 4-6mm, mesh in top 3rd 2-3 mm top coat, that is 6-8 mm overall
so mesh should be 4mm under surface am i right?
the wetherby rep said the mesh should be as close to the surface as possible
am i being taken for a c***t

The reps right the top coat is whatever it is but the base will be 4-6mm, id be more worried about the mess and the beads, if they haven't started topping get them to sort it the ask for another gang to finish it

mesh in top third normally

Hi Paul
done a lot of weatherby stuff and its not top 3rd for mesh mate... they stipulate first pass 4mm base coat with mesh embedded... then 12 hours later another 4mm of basecoat... total 8mm so mesh is 6mm in... i dont want to even get into this but all manufactures have the same system components....
OK... why do material suppliers insist on 8mm basecoats???? when 4mm will suffice...if you use double mesh... which is stronger job... i will tell you now... its because they just want to sell material... end of.. thats the remit

Hi the problem is mate that when a monocouche render gos wrong it really gos wrong ,it needs lots of time to cover up all windows ,doors ,floors the prep for me is 70% of the job if you don't prep correctly all hell will break loose people think its easy but it's not it can bite you on the arse ,it needs to be priced correctly or you just end up rushing it and end up with results like yours I hope you get things sorted soon if u need any advice you can get my detials of my website spray rendering - hertfordshire rendering. Good luck

its not mono its a thin coat system over dry fix phenolic boards... they have put the boards on wrong, not staggered, mesh showing through top coat in places, and no mesh into reveals or strengheners over window corners... also cant believe 21 days and still not finished... WTF... 3 days should have been plenty IMO for 60 m2... anyway i would re bead the lot re mesh the lot properly and do it again straight over the top of it
my house (update)

scaff went back up today lads sat in van and watched.
the main gaffer came out just looked at the lads in van said nothing it was 2pm (nice time to start work).
no they didnt start he sent them shopping so they can sort out somthing to stop rain getting on the walls.
