No matter how well maintained a property is, one thing which is inevitable is our harsh UK climate and this can cause problems on your properties exterior. Although the vast majority of cracks which appear on the surface of a property are nothing to cause concern structurally, they do cause a headache on the appearance of the home. In the vast majority of cases where these cracks occur this reduces the value of the property as well as decreases its saleability.
How Can Rendering Enhance My Property?
Rendering the exterior of a property is a great way of giving it a refreshed appearance as well as maximising the property’s value. This solution is highly durable with a minimum 15 year guarantee making it hugely cost effective and long lasting.
There are several types of rendering options available from traditional fine sand and cement mixtures through to rapid drying acrylic based options that suit your taste, budget and property style. With numerous colour and finish options available you can give your property that eye catching curb appeal or can choose to make it blend in with its natural surroundings.
Another significant improvement your property will benefit from is that it will be much more energy efficient. Those small cracks which cause the loss of heat will be eliminated reducing your bills as your property will be far better insulated.
How Can Rendering Increase My Property Value?
Perhaps you have purchased a property for an investment to resell or let to tenants and are worried about making a good return for your investment. Choosing to render the exterior of the property is a great way to increase value as well as secure that tenant or buyer. You can vastly improve the look of the property as well as protect it against the elements.
The amount that you invest is minimal compared to the return you will benefit from having a blemish free exterior and the increase in value your property will see once the project is complete.
It may seem a daunting task to undertake a large scale project however the process is relatively simple. Unlike simply repainting the surface which will still show the damage and cracks after it has dried, rendering fully protects the exterior of the property for years to come as well as makes it more structurally sound by reinforcing the bricks or stone.
