  2. Erect a double scaffolding without making a hole in the wall (Or erect a single standing scaffolding by taking support of wall as directed by the higher authority).
  3. Fill the external gaps on the side in masonry & beam or column joints with rich mortar and complete the socketing work.
  4. Fix 6” wide chicken mesh on the joint of RCC & Masonry wall (Nailing of chicken mesh should be at a distance of 230mm interval).
  5. Take the plumb or line from top to bottom at all the edges to ensure the accuracy and keep the thickness of the single coat plaster at minimum 10-12mm uniformly.
  6. If a beam or column is bulged out, then chiseling is to be done with a small concrete breaker or a sharp chisel and hammer, only after the RCC designer permits it.

  8. Ensure that masonry work is complete in all respect and the surface to be plastered should be dampened a day before plastering.
  9. The above process should begin at least two days prior to the plastering so that it may gain strength.
  10. Sand sieved properly and silt content within permissible limits i.e., less than 8%. If silt content is more than 8% then wash the sand before use.
  11. Take sand proportion 1:5 with machine mix and the mixed mortar should be placed within half an hour. Add waterproofing chemicals per bag into the mix as per the recommendations.
  12. After the preparatory measures, start plastering, ensure that no uneven surface is observed.
  13. Roughen the surface with wires for better bonding with the second coat.
