    "Depends on the sub-surface and style of the bungalow. My advice is if the old reader is cracked and falling off to strip it all back to brick and start again. You can then apply a normal render and a resin-based paint or go for a k rend. There are multiple options and finishes, the world is your oyster."

    "Remove the old render, then we would use Johnstone's storm shield render, two coats with fiberglass mesh and finish with silicone-enhanced 1.5mm render paint."
