    Hi to everyone. Please could you help me? I need to order some brick specials and one of the measurements on the specials will be the thickness of render over 7n blockwork. How thick is standard, to building regs, render coat please. I can't seem to find this in the Building Construction Manual and the LABC book doesn't state it either it just says two coats. Thanks.

    between 20 and 30 mm mate but it all depends on the truness of the wall it might have to be thicker or a little bit thinner if the wall looks like the north sea.
