I have just had the side of my house rendered, and am concerned about the danger of water penetration at the edges. The picture below is of the corner with the front of the house. You can see the brown stopbead to the right and gaps where it meets the pointing at the front. I think that the plasterer should have covered these gaps in mortar to prevent water seeping in behind the render. I would be grateful if anyone would agree with my plasterer who seems to think it is not part of doing a proper job. Big thanks in advance
Yes, there are chances of water penetration at the edges. The plasterer should have covered these gaps to prevent water seeping in behind. Ask them to reconsider the rendering as it is not done according to the requirement.
