Re: How to repair the render wall

Hello @Shanman


Thank you for sharing your question about repairing your render. I recommend using a Mr Clean Handheld Iron Scrub Brush or similar to brush out the loose render that is still stuck in the wall. I suggest using a Sabco Jumbo Wash Sponge to dampen the exposed render before patching it with mortar. You will need a Craftright 150mm Pointing Trowel to mix the mortar and apply it to the damaged area. 


I propose using the Dingo Fast Set Mortar - 3kg mixed with water to repair the damage. Mix only the amount you think will need to repair the damage. Make sure to place the unused mortar in a ziplock bag for future repairs. If you have an old brush in your garage, I suggest using it to create the stippled surface in order to match the original render.


Here is a handy step-by-step guide: How to render
