    hi.im about to tackle my first big rendering job once the weather improves ive been a self employed plasterer for 18months and feel that this is an area would like to brake into. ive already done the odd garden wall but im unsure about how to add the correct amount of waterproof solution to the mix

    Hi Big T,

    I've only been going alone for a short time and am way off rendering (tried it one helping a mate out and jeez, was it hard work). I'm relatively iexperienced and still have a whole load to learn.

    Would the correct amount to add not be stated on whichever waterproofer you're using?

    Regards

    Fred

    Fill your bucket up to the 10 litre mark with water then check the ratio on the tub.

    If for example it's 30:1 then a coke can is 330 ml - cut top off with your snips and fill (just under full) with waterproofer add to water and mix thoroughly.

    Or you could buy a plastic measuring jug :!:

    Good luck!

    PS. Whole house - price for 2 i'd say.
