On building matters you can disagree with me as much as you like. :)

I always just used sand and lime it was only when I asked why one sac was more expensive that the other when it was the same make.
One had some cement which he said you used on the exterior.

I’ve only rendered stone buildings and would be worried about the breathing capabilities of any mix with added cement. This week I’m an expert on woodwork, one pair of shutters have been reborn.

Before and after of the front. It's just been put on not finished till later when it starts to set.

Fantastic result !
Ready made mix is definitely the way to go when you can.
With a minimum precautions, it stays in place for decades...
Sadly, in some places, Bâtiments de France ban this stuff...
I remember a building in the center town (XVI th century) a few years ago that a friend of mine (a builder) had rendered with lime + sand according to the requirements of BdF.
He had predicted the disaster but had no choice : 1 year after it had started to peel and crack !
You learn from your mistakes but it's much quicker and cheaper to learn from the mistakes of other people ! :D

It makes a big difference- definitely more kerb appeal.

If you remember back far enough it's what I repaired the stonework around my windows with, I also remember getting lots of flack about the cement content, Oh those where the days on FE.
