    Attaching Render Beads


    I'm rendering the outside of a property with sand and cement render them tyrolean. Do i attach the drip beads, corner beads and stop beads whats the best method to attach them with? Pink grip, using some mix and dabbing them in, nails or some other adhesive?

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    "Thick dry wall adhesive 1st do 1x scratch coat let dry for 1/2 days mix thick dry wall adhesive stick beads thay will hold stick like to a blanket can plumb beads level won't fall down above windows like wet soft render.
    Or can fix nails and washers so nails don't pop throw mesh on beads
    I WOULD stick drywall adhesive if I was you hassle free.
    Going to render with waterproof in it the mix anyway don't matter .
    Just don't stick with multi finish or bonding or hardwall or artex or filler.
    Dry wall adhesive is quite water proof anyway just p.v.a the adhesive before render it you worried make sure 've is dry .take hour or 2 hrs mix bit water for that I WOULD say 50/50 mix"

    "Secure all beads with tacks. I suggest stainless steel.
    You can also bed the beads on with sand and cement, the same material you’re using to render.
    Or both.
    I wouldn’t suggest using any other method.
    Adhesive can retain moisture, non-stainless beads and tacks can rust."

    "Use your adhesive and stick them on. This is the best way and you can fill the beads out with the adhesive so it takes less render when you do the work."

    "Yeah any type of grip fill will do just to hold them in place while you render 👍👍"
