If you live in Cambridgeshire and are thinking about rendering or re-rendering your home, then you first have to decide which kind of render to choose.
Below we have detailed three of the main types of render to help you make your choice.
This is a relatively midrange render in terms of cost, so it’s great if budget is a consideration. Acrylic keeps its colours for longer, so if you’re going bold this is a good choice. However, it doesn’t breathe as well as some other options, so if you need air to circulate to the bricks this may not be a great option.
Some mineral render can be breathable and dries quickly. It is also very impact resistant and durable. It is entry level of the cost range for renders so is a popular choice for homeowners. Breathability is important, which makes lime mineral render the preferred option for some projects.
Silicone render is sometimes considered a top-of-the-range system. It’s the easiest to apply and is hydrophobic, often self-cleaning and flexible. In addition, it’s highly durable and breathable as well, but can be problematic to apply it in cold weather as it takes longer to dry than other renders. It can also be the most expensive option, but comes highly recommended by professionals.
