Not chemically, pressure washed it off and micro'd it.

there was a tree/bush growing up that area of the house taken down before I took shot.

any suggestions for future reference?

was up there the other day and was done near 9 months ago and still looks ok.

why did you not fit a drip bead to the head of the square window on the ground floor?

She had old/odd windows, this one being nearly flush, concrete was very brittle above window and didn't want to disturb it when pinning fir trees, I suggested options to customer and she agreed she wanted this.

if you look above French doors you'll see a slight drop in the bead, as I was struggling to get a grip with fir trees. Concrete was coming away, right pain in the ****

you want to be killing off any green before rendering, pressure washer alone aint enough, using something like parex lanko mousse

Why didn't you just stick the beads on then?

Oh and the work looks tidy.

I believe you may have a problem with your camera. As you mention the pics are a tad bright which you put down to the sun, but I see you're from Yorkshire so I'd say a problem with your camera is much more likely.

That top photo I priced for but she was keen to have someone from Rotherham who drove an American pick up?

I agree with Andy, stick your beads in future. To be honest I would say its the beading that lets the job down a little. Was that expansion needed down the middle, or was it to break the panel down? And the bead colour is not a good match.

As I remember she did epc's and her husband was coining it in on Green Deal boilers. She was smartening up the house to sell.

when we fit drip beads, we fix a temp. battern, screwed and pluged. then stick the bead with external quality ceramic tile adhesive . you can then just lay the bead onto the battern and know it is correct.

I prefer to pin beading up as you can level out and move them letter on, next day even, your not under pressure with setting gear less mess also, Just my preference.

think of it as stapling beads up to sticking them on with gear on internals.

i put bead down middle to break the wall up and make it a little easier, as I'm still learning.

apologise rigsby, I spoke to them earlier in year and they said they didn't have any other quotes, if I knew you had priced/viewed it I wouldn't have put it up, sorry again bud.

both customers were happy with work, they were offered all colours and different beading, it's what the customer chose not me, if it was up to me I would have moved house as render is a pain in the arse.

it is weber pral m,

thanks for for the feedback, positive and negative,

That was not me.

She rattled on about a house what was done across the road by a Rotherham spread driving an American pick up. I didn,t particularly like her Malc, just had a feeling she was after a comparison quote so no problems. Seems daft to me, she lived in a very expensive area and wanted the front rendered when all her neighbours was brick? Looks good now but in a few years it will lose value rather than gain.

Maybe some brick feature 1m high from the dpc? Not just this house Malc but whole walls rendered looks a bit bland to me. I like to see some features built in. Looks a good job though. I think I priced for render and bucket coat. I was in my keep away from monocouche render at all costs era. Going to start doing them again next year but not with Weber. It will be Parex, SAS or Envirowall.

Thanks buddy, really appreciate that.

its what they asked for, she specifically asked for weber pral m cream, so she must have picked up a sample panel from somewhere.

I'm not in the game to take on work I couldn't do or wasn't confident of doing, I worked for a rendering company last year and did a few mono jobs and a couple of EWI/thin coat jobs all hand applied, learnt a fair bit while there.
