Plaster and render required on large extension and renovation in Bedfordshire

#1
I am in the trade and am doing a fairly big project on my own house in near Whipsnade Zoo. It's a bit too much for my regular guy (who I've worked with for over 15 years) to do without compromising our other work.

There's about 200 sq. m of render to do, some of which will be on new EWI (fitted by us) and some on new blockwork.

I don't have much experience of through-coloured renders, on the smaller extensions we do we normally use sand and cement to match the existing, however I have been looking at Monocouche and K-Rend scraped finish.

I'm open to advice as I'm looking for the best product for the job, and also someone to do it.

It should be ready early September.

you will be better off using render mesh then EML if poss. EML will expand under different weather conditions and crack your rendering.
a render carrier board may be another option.
