    Default Patching painted render with new window

    Hi folks,
    i am guessing this is not unusual, but I can't seem to find clear information.
    i have had a new window installed in a rendered wall and now need to bring new render up to the frame. I am not really sure what to do here - mainly where I will join to the existing painted render.

    As per the pics I need to build in a reveal and join to the existing. Should I scratch back some of the existing and try to marry it in, or is acrylic render good here, I have blueboard along the next wall to render anyway.
    i saw a product called ezyreveal that is a wide galv reveal with a perforated angle and not sure if something like this is the way to go.

    Some advice here would be much appreciated.

    Generally match like with like, I'd stick with solid render, there are some holes there in the cut bricks that will need filling before you put the final coat on. Have you considered engaging a solid plasterer to do the job, it isn't easy doing a tidy job on fiddly work like that. all the same with a straightedge, trowel and sponge it isn't complicated either.

    Thank you for their reply. I think that you are probably right about getting a proper tradie in. Turns out a mason that we have used before is back from travelling and I can get him for the job.
