If you are considering a render or re-render project in Hampshire, then there are two key questions that you are probably asking yourself.
How long will render last?
Render lasts a long time. Often it has a lifespan of around 30 years and can come with a guarantee reflecting this. However, in reality, it generally lasts even longer. Look around on any street in the UK and you will see properties that haven’t been rendered in 50 years or more. That’s why it’s a sensible long-term investment in your property.
How much does it cost?
Rendering isn’t cheap, but that doesn’t mean it’s not good value for money. It involves scaffolding for multi storey properties, and if you have existing render then that will need stripping first before the new coat is applied. There is also no way of getting around the man hours involved. Typically you pay around £40 to £60 per square metre for application, with additional costs for stripping render. There are also further costs if you choose to insulate at the same time. But once it is done, you don’t have to worry again for around three to five decades, so it is long-term peace of mind.
