    Hi Robert.

    It would depend on the condition of the existing render, if it was in a poor condition we wouldn’t advise to render on top of this as it is likely to cause damage to the new render eventually.

    It may be possible to removed damaged or loose areas then re-render everything. We would recommend speaking to some local rendering companies who will be able to come and give you some advice.

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission.
