    Hi All
    At some point soon i will be rendering my extension and have a couple of questions. The size of the extension is 6m x 6m x 6m so its pretty large.

    1. I need to put some beading above the DPM (i forget what the name of the beading is) but the question is, how to i dress the blocks below the DPM?

    2. 6m is pretty large, should i break the area into 2 or 3, if yes, whats the best method of doing this.

    3. Was looking at a ProRend solution instead of mixing everything together but looks expensive, has anyone used it and is it really worth it?

    Thanks

    Lee

    Regarding the DPM and the bell cast bead. Where exactly does it go? I am assuming that it needs to be fixed just above the DPM? Not too sure on this point. Can i render below this?

    I think thats a silicone monochouche system.

    they can be difficult to apply.

    Here is a picture of where i was at, the roof has been done a bit more now. At the bottom you will be able to see the vent panels at which run pretty much in line as you would expect with the bottom of the door there. The DPM sits just above these vents.

    I get that i have to install a bell cast bead and this will be just above the DPM but not too sure what i can do below the DPM
