    Hi All,

    Our house has render on the external wall between our roof and next doors which is about a foot lower (we are a terrace) this is in terrible shape and has a selection of holes leading to damp in our front bedroom and draughts in the loft.

    Is it a bad time of year to do this sort of work due to the weather conditions? Its doing our head in and making a mess of things so we want it done asap and its been suggested to us that we need to wait for better weather.

    Suggestions, comments etc please folks

    Thanks in advance. Rob

    You can certainly prepare and scratch coat it , then you know there is no more damp or draughts. As long as it sets before a frost gets into it.

    Then wait until you get a bettter window of weather and finish it.


    Rendering is done all year round, and a mild winter day is far better than a hot summer day!
