The Different Types of Rendering
  • The Cement and Sand Render- a cement and sand render occupies a traditional place in the pantheon of render supplies. It remains popular today for a variety of reasons. Certainly, it is effective, but it’s also an outstanding choice for those with not a lot of wiggle room in their budget. A cement and sand render is mixed on-site and applied in coats. Once dry it is painted, or not, depending on the needs and tastes of the home or business owner.
  • While cement and sand renders are reliable and affordable they are not through-colour renders, so if they get chipped the flaw will be obvious. They also need to be cleaned (typically once a year) if they are to look their best over time.
  • The Monocouche Render – when it comes to render supplies the monocouche is fast becoming a customer favourite. Some would compare the monocouche render to a sand and cement render, but they are fundamentally different when it comes to texture and other characteristics. The monocouche render is through-coloured so no painting is necessary and if the surface is damaged that damage will be very hard to see.
  • Monocouche renders are available in hundreds of colours, are very durable, will resist the worst that the UK climate has to throw at them, provide first-class insulation with high thermal efficiency and are considered by some to be the best value in render supplies.
  • The Silicone Render – you will often hear silicone renders referred to as “thin coat renders” because they are usually applied as a thin coat over a reinforced base. The silicone render is very flexible which makes it a great choice for structures prone to subsidence. Should the reinforced base crack the silicone render will usually retain its integrity. Silicone renders are highly waterproof, through-coloured and easier to apply than other renders. In addition, silicone renders tend to be self-cleaning since airborne dirt, dust and other particles will not adhere to them. Silicone renders are also breathable, so moisture does not get a chance to build up inside the wall and cause problems.
