The remit on this job was to produce a finish that would look like it had been there for many years. The customer is intending not to paint the render but let it age and weather nauturally.

With this in mind , bare edges of stainless stop and angle bead would ruin the authenticity we set out to acheive. There are elements like the quions and mouldings run in situ that obviously cant be acheived using beads.

Wow!

That's stunning Mark! Some real talent and long days went into that I bet. You must have a good team of lads around you to pull that off to such a standard.

I'm really impressed!
