External renders incorporate basic materials but high levels of knowledge and skills to choose the right type of render for your wall. People render external walls for many reasons but chiefly to protect the walls from the effects of the weather or to make the walls look good. This is particularly common on contemporary buildings.
Whatever your reason, choosing us to carry out your house rendering is a smart choice as we have highly skilled tradesmen specialising in this area who can advise you on the right type of render. Here’s a list of external renders we are experts at:
Lime render is primarily used in the conservation of buildings originally built using lime mortar, but may be used as an alternative to ordinary portland cement. It is made principally of lime (hydraulic, or non hydraulic), water and an aggregate such as sand
Sand/Cement smooth finish
A sand/cement render is a mortar consisting of cement and fine aggregate, usually together with lime or a plasticiser, which is applied to a wall surface, generally in two or more coats. The hardened render provides a durable weather resistant finish that will enhance the surface of a building. This finish will be grey in colour, smooth and ready for painting.
Pebble Dash is the application of two coats of sand/cement render with pebbles or decorative aggregate embedded in the topcoat. Pebble dash was originally used to render large areas or multiple structures as it is quicker to apply therefore saving on labour costs.
