The rendering process may seem an intimidating large scale project to undertake however the truth is that the procedure is a relatively speedy and well managed practice. Here at Rendacoat we are experienced in what we do and bring this knowledge to every project we undertake so we can ensure that the project is managed effectively, to budget and within an allocated time scale.
Following your free consultation and quote acceptance, the initial stages of the application process will involve preparing your exterior walls to receive the rendering application. All walls on the property will be thoroughly cleaned down and scarred to enable a firm grip for the Rendacoat application to hold. For properties which suffer from a more severe façade, heavy duty coats may need to be applied. This process is undertaken to essentially strip all of the existing exterior to reveal the bare entities of the buildings formation.
As a final preparation, we mask all doors, windows, fascias, guttering, patios, decorative additions and even any nearby greenery or ornaments.
The Rendering Application
Should scaffolding need to be erected this will be done so to minimise disruption, however the use of ladders is generally used for the majority of projects.
A further stage of cleaning will take place on the external surface using wire brushes or a power wash. Our power washing process uses bio washing chemicals that will act as a barrior to prevent the build-up of algae, moss, fungi and mould.
The first stages of applying the rendering mixture will be undertaking by our trained workforce. Using traditional trowel methods usually 2 – 3 coats will be applied to wall elevations.
The final coat will be your choice of colour render and will be applied by your chosen method e.g. a flat or textured finish.
Once the rendering application has been completed, our workforce will thoroughly tidy the site. We will remove any masking tape, protective sheeting and promptly take down any erected scaffolding to reveal your properties new facelift. Any and all rubble or waste will be removed from the site through the hiring of a skip.
After the project has been complete, a thorough inspection of the property will be undertaken. We will inspect the overall workmanship and quality of the project. Upon satisfaction the work force will walk you around your property and present your newly protected home.
