All Advice by BASE Advice

Sometimes you need a little bit of advice before hiring a trade. Our community of professional trades are here to help.

Speech

How long do you have to wait before painting over new plaster?

Anything from a day to week or more. Once the plaster has dried it will be a uniform pink colour. Plaster on plasterboard will dry much quicker than plaster that has been applied to internal render, after damp proofing. Do not leave heating on to dry it quicker as this could cause shrinkage resulting in cracks in the plaster. Once fully dried apply a mist coat of water/emulsion paint to seal the fresh plaster.

Speech

How long does it take to render a house?

To render straight onto brick 2 bed terraced can take anything from 2 days with sand and cement. 3 bed detached can take roughly about 5 days. Things that need to be taken into consideration are the preparation, does the property have pebble dash or old render applied? Good practise is to remove this first before applying new coating which will take longer. New coloured renders can usually be applied quicker as it goes on in one coat, can also be machined applied on large areas.
