Hi all , been plastering and damp proofing for 25 years but have come across a new problem , a client wants me to render over her painted pebbledashing , i normally would take off the dashing but it is very sound , do you think it would hold up with 2 coats of PVA and a PVA in the scratch coat enough for me to gaurentee it ? or does anyone know of a better adhesive or method
I have a similar issue to the one below. My house has old pebble dash with several coats of paint on it (The last one was Dulux) I want to smooth render the whole property (or have someone else do it), and want a perfect finish.
The answer below is useful, but is there a 'By the book method' that is 100% failsafe? Ideas that come to mind (Apart from hacking it all off) are to mesh the wall first to give a stable base, but I am guessing.
Lastly what would the correct mix be and what are the materials used.
