    Hi all,

    Now the good weather is coming we are looking at painting the exterior of the property.

    On the newer extension there is a failing in the set coat of render / textured paint but I need to identify which it is before I try to fix. Can you help me identify this? Looking at other threads it may be textured paint.

    If it is textured paint, how is best to get the finish in the images? I am happy for product recommendation from the experts out there :)

    Thanks Clive - that's a great help. Had never seen or heard of this stuff before.

    Looks like I need a hand operated gun and a bag of mix and away I go!

    Will come back with some finished pics so everyone can have a good old laugh at my patch job, ha!

    OP,
    Yes, it does appear to be a Tyrolean application.

    But either the mix wasn't mixed correctly or, more likely, the background was not prepped - for example, the render background looks to be very sandy.

    The consequences are that you have a "skin" of Tyrolean, & the skin has not bonded to the background.
    Its possible that the whole extension application of Tyrolean is barely "sticking" to the background, and would come away in sheets if you attempted to strip it off.

    If what I say is whats actually happening then the whole application must come off, and the background be carefully examined for suitability - if not, moisture will get behind blown Tyrolean, and cause further damage and unsightliness.
