I replaced some rendering on the side of the house over the weekend but
in spite of my best efforts to try and keep it damp it has already dried
out in this hot weather. It's quite hard so I am not too worried, but
my question is a general one - if a cement mixture dries out before it
has cured properly, when it gets damp again through rain or atmospheric
moisture, does the hardening process recommence or does it stay as is?
I put it to you that it is very unlikely that cement render,
or even cement mortar, was used on many houses much before 1920,
let alone 1850.
