We have been removing old renders for many years. In 2008 over 65% of the renders we removed had been installed less than 4 years. They had all failed because of poor workmanship and incorrect materials.

Mrs C--- in Burton on Trent paid £2000-00 to have some rendering on her house.

Six months later it started to fall off. The person who installed the render, (I will not call him a plasterer) came and repaired the render but It failed again. The second time he would not come and repair the render.

After two year Mrs C--- contacted Chembond to ask for a quotation. The quotation was £2200-00. We then removed the old render and installed a new reinforced render.

Mrs C--- could not get any compensation from the first company.

Mrs C--- paid a total of £4,200-00.

£2000-00 to the cowboy and £2200-00 to Chembond.

CAN YOU AFFORD TO PAY DOUBLE?

This situation is common. In 2008 most of our customers had a similar story.

This is a picture of texture coating that has been installed onto a render with very little cement in it, and no stabilizing solution.


This is a picture of slate falling off a gable wall. The slate was too thick and heavy.

The person who installed the slate did not remove the bitumen paint. The little chip key marks are not enough for the cement to bond to the brickwork.


This is a picture of a texture coating installed onto a gable with a PVA.

PVA does not set on damp brickwork.


This is a picture of a smooth render with what is called mapping cracks.

It was probably caused either with the temperature dropping over night, or the render was installed too thick in one coat.


This is a bad case of a render that has been glued incorrectly with a PVA.


This is a render that has been installed less than three years. It fell off because the wrong sand was used, there was not enough cement in the render and it dried out in the sun too quickly.


This it a typical cowboy, one coat, scratch coat using the wrong sand. The cracks appeared after two days.


Another case of not removing the paint before rendering.
