Thincoat render in Croston

This house was a smooth Accrington brick made up of many extensions. The first port of call was the sheet up operation. All windows, soffits and roofs needed protected prior to any work starting.

Next job was to give a thorough anti fungal wash on affected areas to kill the mould. As it was Accrington brick it needed a key coat primer . This is a tight rough coat to give the property a grip to work to.

We was now ready for the beads. Each bead was levelled , squared and bedded on with base coat . Next was the first pass of the high performance basecoat two thirds thickness . Ruled and serrated with mesh embedded close to the surface. Any stress areas needed double meshed.

Now we was ready for the next coat of basecoat. This was a coat ruled and rubbed to leave the job as flat as possible..

After the curing process it was ready to prime. The colour chosen was Connie. This was applied with rollers and brushes for cutting in.

It was now time for the topcoat to be applied. This was put on as tight as possible. Then rubbed up in a circular motion to create the finish. This has to be done quickly to avoid drying lines occurring. It was also key to keep an eye on the weather as it’s very important.

After the silicone thincoat was set and hard . We could start taking the sheeting off. This is when the time and effort put in at the beginning of the job really pays off. If done correctly it can be cleaned very quickly.

This job was completed in Johnstone’s storm-shield thincoat render . The colour was done in Connie and the grade was 1.5mm
