Give your home the wow factor you deserve with a professional rendered finish.
- For this job you will need a wide application roller tray, external grade tape, a bucket and sponge, a blocking stone or stiff brush, a brush for cutting-in and of course a drop sheet.
- A broom is a great way to quickly free stubborn dust and grit from your walls before cleaning with Selleys® Original Sugar Soap.
- As always, mask of any areas that need protecting such as light fittings, adjoining walls and floors.
- Begin by applying one coat of Dulux Exterior Texture Primer to condition the surface and help your topcoat adhering.
- Use a brush to cut into edges of your wall or any section that your roller will find difficult to reach.
TIP: Lightly feather your brushwork into the wall to make blending with your roller easier.
- You will need a Full Cover Texture Roller to apply Dulux Texture Full Cover Roll On. These rollers have been designed to hold and spread more material, therefore a regular roller just won’t do. Using your roller, apply the product in vertical motions, working from the ground upwards.
- Working from the ground up, hold the float against the surface so the leading edge is raised and angled at about 45°. Push the material across the surface to fill the joints and any low spots. Distribute broadly and always level the texture before it sets.
- Now you can float the levelled area with larger, lighter strokes to further fill and even out your texture.
- After a few moments, clean the float and lightly finish your render in circular motions. Clean your float immediately with a damp sponge.
TIP: It’s important to keep a wet edge as you move across the wall to prevent the texture from setting before you’ve finished with the float.
- It’s recommended you use a minimum of two coats and potentially further coats if your wall has deeper joints or a rougher surface.
