What We do

Sand & Cement Render

Traditional renders comprise of sharp washed sand, Portland cement and hydrated lime. The levels of each depend on the type of wall and level of exposure to weather conditions.

Stainless-steel or plastic rendering beads are fixed to edges for protection; bellcast beads are fixed above damp proof course, doors and windows to shield them, and to deflect rain water.

Coloured Monocouche Render

This is a pre-mixed, cementitious, weather resistant, exterior decorative, pigmented render, suitable for nearly all sorts of brick or blockwork.

This is machine applied allowing for quick application with shorter programme periods, thereby reducing associated scaffold and site costs.

Lime Render

This is typically applied to houses to give protection to walls built of poor quality rubble stone or porous brick or to wall space in exposed places facing driving winds.

This specific type of render helps by acting like a sponge, taking in rainfall then letting it evaporate instead of soak into the wall. We can utilise this type of render on both repair and new build work.
