What Is House Render?

House rendering in London is a process that involves doing an external wall covering designed to protect the exterior exposed walls of a house from rain and cold weather, with external rendering on all London properties finished with a top coat of paint to reduce the chance of the render layer from cracking and damp penetrating.

Rendering external walls on London buildings helps negate the amount of weather damage and erosion a house undergoes, with a layer of cement, lime, or modern resin-based making a smooth render.

House rendering in London not only increases the life expectancy of the building, it helps reduce maintenance costs on the exterior of your building. When rendering external walls on London structures the amount of protection afforded by it relies on the house render materials, the quality of the work, and of course, the  local weather.

A quality house rendering in London will have to consist of cement, lime, or resin base powders or liquids, which when mixed with water, or other chemicals form a paste-like substance. The paste is then smoothed over the walls, using hand tools such as a plasterer’s trowel, to create a barrier layer impervious to water.

What Does House Rendering London at Your Property Entaill?

Understanding the process of house rendering, or external wall rendering on your London property is key to the success of your project. Here are few pointers from TJ House Rendering:

Wall Preparation

When it comes to house rendering, London homeowners should always understand the importance of preparation, with particular attention needed with regard to the structural stability and any repairs made to brickwork. Any external rendering of the walls finish is dependent on the quality of the walls that the facade rendering work is being done on.

External Feature Preparation

Alarm boxes, drainpipes, and weather flashings should all be removed before any external rendering, London property owners must do this before work starts. To achieve a smooth finish when rendering external walls, complete with clean edges and corners, an external bead of metal is attached to any corners, sometimes around every door and window frame.

Insulation Options

At TJ House Rendering our team offers an insulated render system for London homeowners, where we apply a base insulation layer before applying your chosen render, usually in the form of sheets, or block cladding. For this insulated render system, London clients should carefully consider the method chosen to affix this insulation as this can affect the application of your house render.

Render Foundation

At TJ House Rendering we believe that a good foundation is critical for all house rendering. London customers deserve the best final product, and our top quality house rendering involves the use of a render mesh embedded into the first layer of render applied. For all our external rendering, London properties get the benefit of this mesh reinforcing the render from cracking and stress, allowing one or more thin coats to be added on top.

Render Layers

For all our house rendering work in London, the number of layers of render varies and is dependant on the materials chosen and the desired finish our clients request. With external rendering, London teams use materials including polymer cement, silicone or acrylic.

The Finish

For external rendering, London clients often want and request a render that has a modern resin base, often pre-coloured on arrival. For those not using pre-coloured render for their house rendering project in London, a final coat of primer is used which is then followed by painting render. For an exceptionally smooth external render, London properties get a coat of primer and paint to seal them.

Final Touches

Once the external render has cured and the paint dried on any painting render, London homeowners must reattach drain pipes and external features removed earlier. With TJ House Rendering, London customers can expect this house rendering process to take approximately three to four weeks to complete, depending on the size of your property and external render used.

In these instances, a full render removal can be done before new materials are applied .Depending on the age and quality, a painting render can be done.

TJ House Rendering:

When is the Best Time To Render a House?

When it comes to house rendering and external rendering in London, it is highly recommended by our team of leading industry professionals to do the work during the spring season, as this is when the weather is neither too hot nor too cold for hydration to occur properly.

With that said, external rendering can actually be done properly all year round if that is what your schedule demands or requires.. For all external rendering work, you just need to follow the given tips and recommendations below in order for the rendered walls to dry properly, that’s our best advice…

If you are doing external rendering on your London property walls during the cold season it is advisable to use a quick dry render mixture in order to adapt to the cold weather. This is because quick-dry render mixtures have a faster curing time than other render mixtures available in the market which makes it more appropriate to use during cold seasons. For external rendering and house rendering done during the hot season, it is recommended that you start rendering your walls early to avoid the exposure of the render mixture to direct sunlight.

Tips on Rendering during Hot and Cold Seasons

When it comes to house rendering in London during the colder months and seasons, our external rendering experts always advise the use of a quick dry render mixture in order to adapt to cold weather. With this kind of house rendering, you can use a rendering accelerator to reduce the drying time of render mixtures and to quickly eliminate excess moisture on your walls.

For external rendering on London properties during warmer months and seasons, we advise rendering your walls early to avoid the exposure of the render mixture to direct sunlight. Applying render mixture during hot temperatures can cause render to dry out too fast, with cracks and patchy finishes, not a great look when rendering external walls in London.
