House Rendering Explained

Rendering is a process to cover the exterior wall surface with either a mineral, silicone or acrylic coating. This gives the house protection against weathering and erosion.

In the case of brick-faced homes, the bricks are manufactured with a form of glaze to offer some protection however when under constant attack from the weather after a few years the brick face can become eroded. The mortar joints between the bricks can also start to fail, these together can result in expensive repairs. 

The cost to have your house rendered is going to be influenced by the size of the wall area, the current condition of the wall, access, and timescale to name but a few. According to, the cost is between £30-£60 per square metre. 

It’s also worth considering that rendering can aid a property’s efficiency and it should last between 20-30 years.
