One of the most significant and recent developments in construction is anti-crack rendering. At Gaffney & Guinan, our installers have a vast amount of experience rendering various properties, including both modern and old historic buildings.
Today’s rendered finishes are rapidly improving in quality, durability, and look. We use polymer-based basecoats and reinforcement meshes for our render solutions.
Our rendered treatments suit a variety of architectural styles. In addition, we provide a selection of ornamental finishes for your render, ranging from bold, vivid hues to pastel tones.

Benefits of our Nottingham House Rendering Services
- Maximises your property’s structural stability – rendering the exterior of your home can not only help to protect the layers of your home, but it can also smoothen uneven brickwork.
- Extends the life of your home’s materials – house rendering typically lasts between 20 – 30 years.
- Refines the appearance of your property – rendering your home can make your property appear more modern, and you can adjust the render to your preferred style.
- Rendering can provide mild insulation – rendering can also help your property retain heat, as the outer render would minimise the amount of heat passing through the walls. External house rendering can reduce heat loss by almost 30%.
- Various styles to choose from, with a wide range of colours and textures.
- Helps to fight against dampness– Although rendering cannot eliminate dampness, it can be effective at stopping its spread through the walls. Cement and Sand renders are best at tackling damp.
Types of House Rendering
We can provide you with the right render to suit your preference. The types of render we provide include:
- Cement renders – The most used type of render is cement render. The cement render is first prepared and applied in coats. Then, we apply a final, thin layer to ensure a good finish and that the render is ready for painting.
- Polymer renders – The materials we utilise for polymer renders are pre-mixed by our professionals. The polymer render materials we use are lime and white cement. We then add plastic components to the mixture to increase the render’s toughness and crack resistance.
- Acrylic renders – Acrylic renders provide a stunning, smooth finish for your house. We use acrylic renders to seal the underlying coat and improve its appearance.
- Monocouche renders – Monocouche is a French word that translates to “single layer” or “bed”. Monocouche renders are a relatively recent development in the rendering industry. We pre-mix the single-coat render with water, applying it by hand or machine. White cement is typically used, but we normally colour it ahead of time in various shades. Monocouche renders only require one coat, so they are easier to apply than other renders.
- Lime renders – Lime renderings are becoming more popular these days. These types of renders are more difficult to install than other renders – as a result, lime renders are more suited for renovation projects.
- Insulating Renders – Insulating render can be used to renovate a home. This type of render is beneficial when your outside walls are decaying or not adequately insulated. Is the exterior wall of your house leaking or vulnerable to water damage? If so, insulation render can be of assistance.
Factors to Consider
What type of render is most suitable for your property
One type of house rendering might be more suitable for you depending on the building of your property.
For example, a lime render would be the most suitable option if you lived in an old house. Why? Because any movement in an old building can lead to cracks in the cement render.
At Gaffney & Guinan, our team of experts will guide you to make the best decision for your property.
Will you require planning permission to apply for external render?
Whether or not you can apply external render to your property depends on a couple of factors:
- Type of building – If your property is a listed building, you will need planning permission to render your home. Listed buildings are buildings of special historical and architectural interest. You will find these buildings on The National Heritage.
- Location – If your property is situated in a National Park, Conservation or Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, then you’ll need to apply for planning permission before applying the external render.
What if your property is outside of those areas? Then, you’re in luck; you won’t require planning permission to render your home. However, you will need to make sure that the materials you use are similar to those used in the original construction.
The best thing to do is liaise with the Gaffney & Guinan team and we will review your case individually and advise you on the best option.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Can I do external rendering myself? – A smooth render requires the expertise of a skilled and experienced team. If you’re not a professional, rendering a home may result in an inconsistent, unattractive finish and appearance.
- Does rendering make your house worth more money? – Yes. Rendering can improve your house’s value by enhancing its appearance and adding a protective layer over it to preserve the structural materials. These added improvements will likely make your house more desirable to prospective buyers.
- Will rendering a house stop damp from getting in? – rendering will not stop damp from inevitably entering the properly from its original source, but it can prevent damp from entering through the layer of render.
