Have looked at a job today with 7n block and all he was arsed about was the cheapest method, he was happy with our meter age price labour wise
S+c, cheapest but will need painting
Thin coat, can this be put on at 6mm, spoke to wetherby and they said it's OK but does anyone have any experience with this?

Cheers
, also would the full job need mesh on this or just strain points, we normally always do full mesh

Thin coat won't be the cheapest. Far from it.
Sand and cement it for cheapness. Throw him a price in to paint it too (y)

Problem you have is you know fine well that if there is any problems with these cheap methods and cutting corners that he will have you back to strip and redo and your own expense. I never change a price to accommodate a customer as I know how it'll end.

good chance of ghosting at 6mm and you would probably see the mesh bleeding through also.
i,ve been using weber ocr its nice gear on 10mm beads and stops with full mesh no ghosting or mesh bleeding through.

I would never use sand and cement again after using polymer renders. Too many come backs

What's the score with Weber OCR, same as s+c scratch and then top out or is it literally one coat and rub up?

And u can have problems with ocr. But I use ocr because it's faster and u can get it to try a consistent colour. I pay £5.20 A bag
