External Render Cost

Prices for external rendering

Rendering has seen a resurgence in recent years due to the introduction of modern silicon and polymer renders and the more efficient application methods that have have been developed alongside these to make them quicker and easier to apply.

The original and very popular pebble dash is now seen as perhaps a fairly dated exterior finish, it consists of a thick base coat, covered with a render of small stones. These older styles of render can degrade over time with blown cement and cracks appearing, this happens when the surface coating has become separated from the thick base coat or the whole surface has separated from the wall behind.

Modern renders are often a more flexible single layer to accommodate building movement and in some cases breathable as well, reducing the moisture build up which can cause havoc with damp and damage in freezing winter conditions.
