Why should I render my house?

Why should I render my house?

On any average street in any town you will come across a variety of properties. Some will be old, some new and often they will have a mixture of exposed brick or types of render applied. This might cause you to ask yourself why some properties have rendering applied. There are a number of reasons why you might render your property some of these are detailed below:

1 How your property looks

The main reason for rendering a property is to make it more aesthetically pleasing. Adding a coat of render can really change the look of your home and gives the house a bit of a face lift. Over time your brickwork can look unattractive from years of exposure to the weather. Adding a layer of render enables you to have a smooth, uniform and fresh finish. If you already have render but it has been on your home for some time then it might be time to re-render.

2. Resolving damp issues

Another popular reason to render your home is to deal with any water ingress or damp issues that you might have through your current external walls. Some forms of brick particularly where they are exposed to the elements for long periods of time can be liable to damp. By adding a layer of render to your walls you are preventing this form of damp from occurring by putting a barrier between the water and the brickwork. Please do ensure that you get an expert to have a look at your damp problems as they may be caused by other things that render may not rectify.

3. Improve insulation

Adding a layer of render to your property will provide a slight increase in thermal performance but if you are rendering it is a good time to consider what your insulation is like. Both can be a large investment in your home but you could save money by doing both at the same time utilising things like the scaffolding for both projects.
