So What Actually Is Rendering

Similar to how plaster is applied to interior walls, rendering is a protective coating that is put to a building’s outside, all of our render is mixed on-site, resulting in a solid and long-lasting product that will provide a waterproof shell to shield your home from the elements. This render can be painted when it has dried. Broadly speaking, there are three main categories of render:

  • Mineral
  • Acrylic
  • Silicone

Acrylic and silicone representations have extra man-made materials, as their names imply. Mineral renderings, on the other hand, are created from raw materials. That might be anything, including lime and cement

Different Types Of Render

One of the most fundamental and classic types of render is cement render. For a flat covering on walls, a mortar made of sand and cement is placed. It dries with the appearance of cement, which can later be painted. To give the render its own colour when applied, a pigment can be added to the mortar. Although cement render is straightforward and affordable, it isn’t very beautiful, durable, or weatherproof. Lime render is another unique type that is produced by mixing lime with sand to create a mortar. Lime gives this render a flexible characteristic that reduces its propensity to cracking and gives the finished product a more appealing natural appearance. Acrylic Render is created by adding Acrylic resin to the render system to create acrylic render. By doing this, the render acquires properties from the acrylic such as flexibility and water resistance, making it less prone to breaking, however, this man-made additive also lessens the environmental friendliness of acrylic render and decreases breathability when applied to your walls. Silicone Render is similar to acrylic render, silicone render is a cement-based solution with silicone added. This increases water resistance and lowers maintenance requirements.
