Installation is done over various stages to complete the works. A very basic overview is as follows:
- Firstly the walls are scrubbed with an anti fungle and any loose render removed along with drain pipes and other furniture on the walls.
- A layer of adhesive is added and the insualtion boards are places against the walls and then pinned into place as well.
- A basecoast is added followed by mesh to give it strength.
- A render primer is then used to flatten and smooth the system and provide a surface for the render,
- A choice of renders in almost any colour can be then be added for the finshed look.
- Pipes and fittings are then added back on the wall once more.
