Rendering is a great way to easily update the look of an old home but it is also extremely appropriate for new buildings.
The look achieved is sleek, modern and timeless.
Best of all, the rendering process is quick, with a home usually being completed in about a week.
There is no need to worry about the cost of new rendering as the improvement in your home’s resale value will more than make up for your initial outlay.

There are two main types of render – cement and acrylic – and it can be applied to a variety of surfaces, making it an extremely versatile building material.
Think that you can only achieve one look with render?
Oxides can be used to create coloured finishes or, alternatively, you can paint over render.
Render can also be applied in a variety of textures, from as smooth as concrete to a rough, raked finish.
Cladding is a material that covers a building in order to protect it against the elements.
Commonly, cladding is thought of as weatherboards but metal, cement sheeting and even bricks are included.
Weatherboards come in a variety of materials but the most popular is timber, which can be painted or stained.
Red cedar weatherboards are great for a classy look.
Other options include PVC, aluminium and vinyl.
Cladding can be installed over virtually any surface.
External cladding is a great way to hide imperfections and update your home.
Rendering and cladding are not jobs for the average home owner but should be done by a business specialising in this type of home improvement.
Only an experienced renderer can achieve the smooth, uniform result that is the hallmark of a professionally rendered surface.
And not only will an expert finish add to the look of your house but it will also add value, usually more than paying for itself since it can dramatically improve the appearance of a home – especially those built with cheap or unpleasant bricks.
It can be a time consuming job, but you are encouraged to shop around for quotes from reputable businesses. It will be worth it in the end.
