Types of House Rendering

We offer a variety of renders for you to choose from, including:

  • Cement renderings – The most common type of render is a cement render. We begin by preparing and applying the cement render in coats. We apply the final coat thinly to produce a smooth finish and ensure that the render is ready for painting.
  • Polymer renders – White cement and lime are the polymer rendering materials we use. The materials for our polymer renderings are pre-mixed by our professionals. We add plastic components to the mix to improve the render’s crack resistance and hardness.
  • Acrylic renders – We use acrylic renders as a thin finish to seal and improve the appearance of the underlying coat. Acrylic renders give your home that excellent, smooth finish.
  • Monocouche renders – Monocouche is a French term that translates to “single layer” or “bed”. Monocouche renderings are a recent development in rendering. Pre-mixed with water, the single-coat render can be applied by hand or machine. We usually use white cement, but we colour it ahead of time. Monocouche renders are easier to apply than other renders since they only require one coat.
  • Lime renders – Lime renders are becoming increasingly popular. However, they are more challenging to install than other renders. As a result, lime renders are more suitable for renovation projects.
  • Insulating Renders – We can use insulating render to refurbish a home. It is useful when external walls are poorly insulated or are deteriorating. Are your external walls causing water damage or leaking? External rendering can help.

Factors to consider

What type of render is most suitable for your property

At Gaffney & Guinan, our team of experts will guide you to make the best decision for your property. One type of house rendering might be more suitable for your property.

For example,  if you lived in an old house, a lime render would be the ideal option. Why? Because any movement in an old building can lead to cracks in the cement render.


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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

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.
