The Advantages of House Rendering


Rendering is an age-old process used mainly in Europe but lately has been gaining popularity in other regions of the world for its versatility. It involves the use of construction materials usuallycement or lime to the exterior of a building to give it a protective coating and depending on the desired aesthetics of the building, a smooth or textured surface.  

There are several house render systems to choose from. From cement render, and acrylic textures to protective coatings to suit your specific objectives. House rendering is popular because it can significantly improve the appeal and value of your home while protecting it from the rigours of nature.

Enhance exterior appearance:rendering is a popular exterior finish to homes and buildings because of the superior finish it provides. Rendering can improve the strength of the structure while vastly enhancing its appearance. A rendered home looks neat and clean. You will be hard-pressed to find a modern home that is not rendered unless it is architecturally designed to be that way. In keeping with modern exteriors, you would have come across homes that combine materials like wood, brick and stone with rendering to create appealing exterior finishes. The versatility of rendering allows homeowners to turn even an old house with damaged brickwork into something exceptional. Rendering is available in a range of more long-wearing colours and is weather resistant than regular paint which tends to crack and peel over time. To achieve the desired colour all you have to do is mix the pigment of your choice with the render and apply. 

Enhanced protection:because rendering is applied over the brick structure and is durable it acts as a weather guard preventing rain, snow and sun from damaging the brickwork to slow down the process of wear and tear that happens over time. Protection from dampness is another reasonrendering is used in homes. Exposed concrete or brick walls soak up rainwater leaving the structure damp and susceptible to damage over time. Dampness will permeate the interior walls to damage paintwork, wood finishes and wallpaper, eventually creating mould patches on the walls. A word of caution, if your home already has damp patches, you should first attend to the leaks before applying rendering to the exterior walls. 

Enhanced insulation:speak to your contractor or local rendering service professionals about using a type of rendering to improve the level of insulation in your home. There are types of rendering when used with other materials in a certain way that can help keep your interiors cosy and dry during those cold or rainy months. The benefits of using rendering for insulation translate to cost savings on heating apart from the obvious benefits of keeping you warm.

Enhanced property value: even though rendering your house can cost you a bit of money, the advantages far outweigh the cost you will incur. The advantages mentioned above should be enough reason to make your home a good investment for potential buyers.
