Render mesh I think will do the job... But you will need to bed it in or it won't be as effectiveI want to scrim out a whole wall with plastering scrim tape. But I don't want to use the normal type cus I'll be there all day. Where can I get a wider scrim tape for a good price? Is there anywhere in Stoke on Trent that sells this?
Is it ex council house but the walls are sound?Hair line cracks but they are all over the walls.
I always forget about putting fibres in the first coatIs it ex council house but the walls are sound?
If so just get some fibres from Wickes or selco put a good half bag in water stir then add powder, I don’t bother for second coat. If it’s the odd hollow here and there and you don’t want to strip off then use render mesh and be patient until it really pulls in before generous second coat.
They are around £3.50 a bag Danny and just another addition for customer to see we are trying to give a smooth finish for painting with as much prep as possible instead of hack off and dab and skim which is not always necessary.I always forget about putting fibres in the first coat
They can be used for both, they are very fine and you don’t notice them at all except on beads very slightly. There are other fibres specifically for render or screed and they are bigger and thicker, usually sold at jewsons etc.Are these fibres normally used when mixing cement? If u put this in with your multi finish, won't it be full of bits?
