One of the fastest and most cost-effective ways to add street appeal to your clients home is to render the external walls. Rendering involves coating the external walls of a building with a versatile paste-like substance commonly made using cement or acrylic.
Render is typically applied wet and dries into a clean, modern looking facade. Render can be used on new or existing homes and is a great option for clients looking to seamlessly blend a building extension with an existing home.
Key advantages of render cladding
- Improves street appeal
- Protects brickworks
- Seamlessly blends building extensions
- BAL rated systems available
- Non-combustible with the right system
