    "Yes you must remove old render before rendering with k render or monocouche render I hope this helps"

    "Best advised to remove existing render before a re render, due to not knowing the strength of the current render and new render needs to be applied on a stable substrate, hope this helps"

    "Hi there
    It depends on what type of product you are using
    Sand and cement or through colour as there are different methods
    If the render is solid as not blown off the wall in places
    With sand and cement it can be wire-meshed over and re-done
    With through coloured render we can base coat and fiber mesh so it leaves a solid base then new beads can be applied and a top coat applied that can be up to a choice of 50 colours meaning no painting after less time paying for scaffold to be up and can be finished much quicker then traditional method as we can machine apply
    Hope this helps"

    "All depends if the old render is stable enough to put your bonding of R10 render aid on top which will then allow you to put your base coat and kay render on top of that."

    "There is a lot of products on the market now that you don’t have to take all the render off but the bottom line You’re only going over the top of rubbish which will make the top coat fall off .These products are not tried and tested I can almost guarantee you they won’t work in the long run."
