youve no chance with sto,and as the scouse one says its up to the maunufactors of the render who they want.
 
I think it is on its way out. A couple of manufacturers I spoke reckon it is to but they want it to because of the problems it has.

That Weber Pral.m should be banned!

Rant over!
 
Yes but thin coats' like an onion with all the layers. Compared to mono its slower and dearer. Better system though if you can afford it and wait longer.
 
I think it looks a lot nicer than acrylic .....for about a week
None of mono does not look better than any thin-layer render where it is properly executed.But best one is mosaic

depends which manufacturer and on the grain size, so owt between £50 and £60 and covers between 6 and 10m2 but the average 1.5 mm you get between 8 and 10 m2 depending on how tight you can get it on and how much you get down your shirt
 
Most manufacturers do a mozaic also they do graphites marbles granites ameristones etc. you just dont see alot of them because specifiefs and architects dont ever choose them. architects like plain colours more
 
It seems strange that Architects and clients are happy to pay a fortune for real marble and granite stone cladding a high level, when you get a similar effect using these types of systems at half the cost and look exactly the same from a distance!

Its annoying really mate. because it makes a nice change using granites and mozaics
 
Flats i used to live have been EWId and they look awfull when the sun is in the right place you can see all the insulation joins and loads of hollows why is that? is it just bad workmanship.
 
K rend now offer Silicone TC15 and TC30 thin coat renders onto insulation, board, block and whatever other substrates you may have

basecoat too thin/ boards not rasped off prior to mesh coat/ too thin board. can cause all this
 
This is what happens if the boards are installed wrong, or if they were styrofoam boards that were not sanded before applying the adhesive with mesh. That all.
