I thought Bondcrete reduced permeability?

G ' day Per

That is what I thought and expected as it is supposed to stop moisture
getting in and to stop cracking.  Mind you there is not a crack to be
seen on the second coat.  Maybe they think that bond crete will
prevent any chance of delamination.  I am still, open to ideas however
the experienced renderers on the job feel bond crete is essential but
then they are used to cement renders.

How are you two going?  Plenty of straw bale I hope.

Salaams John.
