We've just had our ring foundation re-rendered. I queried the guy if, because of the cold Christchurch weather, the drying time would be longer than usual - and he commented that if anything the slower drying is better for curing.

 

Which got be thinking. One side of the house gets more sun and warmth than the others, so should I be wetting down that side so it cures more evenly with the rest? Should I be wetting down the whole lot for a week or so?

 

I've read your meant to do it with concrete, but I don't know about the concrete render/plaster.

 

Thanks
