Where is render most often used?

Many different types of surfaces can have render applications – brick work/block work, fibre cement, polystyrene cladding and Hebel block and panels are just some of these. As long as the surface is structurally sound, render can be applied on almost any surface.

What kind of rendered finishes are available?

One of the advantages of rendering a surface is the wide range of finishes to choose from. Some of the different types of finishes are: pebble-dash, rough cast, scraped finishes, textured, smooth and machine applied finishes. The choice of type and/or colour will depend on the desired aesthetics of the building and its surrounding.

Is rendering a messy process?

Yes it can be. However, a good, experienced renderer will make sure that all adjacent surfaces are taped and/or protected with thick plastic which remains in place throughout the rendering process.

Can I have metal angles on external walls?

Yes. A good renderer will use quality metal angels to ensure straight corners and a strong and durable external angle that is able to withstand those common knocks and bumps around the house.

What are the advantages in rendering my walls?

Rendering your walls can dramatically increase your house’s value by modernising the look of your home, making it more appealing to buyers. Rendering also protects your home’s wall by forming a water barrier over the bricks and protecting the walls against cracks and water damage.
