Insulated Renders

This type of external render is typically applied in areas where external wall insulation is wanting. It may be that the walls are deteriorating, or there are wall cavities that cannot be filled, the exterior needs updating as part of a renovation, or a greater than normal amount of insulation thickness is required.

Licata products used to perform this type of render are accredited by the BBA (British Board of Agrément). The installation of an insulated render is considered a specialist project with the work performed by approved contractors, who also issue any guarantees.

Thin Coat Renders

Thin coats are a thoroughly modern render finish that offer a wide range of colour choices and are crack resistant, breathable and surprisingly durable. When choosing thin coat renders you have your choice of silicone, acrylic or mineral.

Silicone thin coats are undoubtedly the most popular, perhaps because of silicone’s ability to repel dirt, resist staining and prevent algae from taking root. A silicone render is highly water-resistant and produces a clean modern look. Acrylic renders have a lot in common with silicone thin coats in that you have a lot of colour choices and acrylic is nearly as hydrophobic as silicone. While mineral renders set fast and are designed primarily for cold climates.

Monocouche Finishes

This is a cement-based external render that has the colour mixed right in. Monocouche rendering is comprised of a single coat and is typically applied over brick or blocks. The finish can be manipulated to produce an array of effects or simply scraped smooth to provide a clean, modern look. In addition, because it is through-coloured, you will not need to paint this type of finish. It is also highly water-resistant and will resist algae growth.

Plaster Renders

The Licata plaster rendering system is extremely versatile and can be applied to any standard substrate. Our plaster renders are available in a dizzying array of colours so no matter your aesthetic considerations you will find one to match. Our plaster renders dry fast and provide robust protection against mould, algae and other malicious microbes. A Licata plaster render is also quite light and will not put undue stress on your walls. In addition, they exhibit excellent adhesive ability, are highly breathable and will last for many years.

Benefits of an External Coloured Rendering System

One of the most important benefits of a through-coloured render is that you will never experience chipping and flaking of the colour as often happens with painted wood, stucco or concrete. This type of external render is easy to apply, enhances the kerb appeal of your home or business, is low maintenance and extremely durable.

But a coloured render is more than just attractive and easy to maintain. They are also weather-resistant, while at the same time being quite breathable, which is good for the overall health of the structure they are applied to. If you are looking for a fast, affordable way to boost the integrity and value of your property, think Licata coloured rendering systems.

The Right Choice for UK Home and Business Owners

Britain’s status as an island means it never receives the type of outrageous snowfall seen in other cities at a similar latitude, nor is it burdened with bone-chilling sub-zero temps. But that doesn’t mean that everything in the UK is dry warmth and sunshine. Quite the opposite. The environment of the British Isles is extremely damp and that can have an enervating effect on standard building materials.

Our high-quality render systems provide the barrier you need to protect your home or business from the onslaught of high humidity and all the secondary threats that come with it, including dangerous moulds, structural degradation, the need for constant repainting and more
