House render is a type of cladding for the exterior of the house. It is applied to the exterior of a home, much like plaster is applied to the interior walls. There are two main reasons for house rendering:
- to protect the underlying walling material from the effects of weathering and rainwater penetration
- to provide an attractive appearance to the house
Aside from protecting the brickwork against wind and rain, rendering your walls can make the building more efficient. Around 30% of the energy used to heat a home is lost through its external walls, Using a product such as an acrylic-insulated render is a clever way of upgrading energy efficiency without compromising your interior living space, and also saving you money on warming up your home.
