House rendering is one of the most common forms of cladding used on contemporary homes, and for good reason. There are many types of renders, each lending themselves to certain uses that ensure there’s a render perfectly suited to virtually any type of property — from lime renders helping old properties breathe to contemporary, crisp Monocouche renders.
When it comes to contemporary ideas for house cladding, rendering is often used as part of a range of materials to create interesting, striking homes. Properties that also use the likes of timber or stone cladding rely on rendered finishes as a supporting character, balancing the look of the house and adding areas of relief to intense, busy finishes.
What Is The Purpose Of Rendering?
The most common reason to render your home is to protect it from weather conditions like strong winds and rain. The main benefit that rendering has is that it gives the exterior of your home a protective layer. This layer helps keep it protected from extreme weather conditions and the unwanted condensation that can come with bad weather. Rendering your house can provide you with reassurance that your home will be protected throughout the different seasons. This can be especially comforting if you live in an area with drastic weather changes.
Another benefit of rendering your home is that it will improve your home’s insulation. The coat on your home will help let hot air out during the warmer months and help your home retain heat during the colder months. In addition to improved insulation, your home will also become more energy-efficient, allowing you to save some extra money on bills. While you are considering rendering your home, you should think about adding external wall insulation to give your home even better insulation.
What Is The Point Of Rendering?
Rendering can help stop rain from getting into your home. This is another potential cost that rendering will prevent you from having. If you live in a house with older brick, house rendering can be especially helpful if you currently have a problem with dampness getting into your home. Also, if you are looking to make sure that unwanted condensation will not get into your home in the future.
Polymer is a really good rendering material that is breathable and waterproof. It is recommended for use in damp areas around the house, as well as its exterior. This is because polymer, having good waterproofing mixes, prevents walls from rotting if they are exposed to water. A good option to consider for use in bathrooms is to protect the area from the condensation of the shower.
Why should you render a property?
- Reason 1 – Aesthetics
- Reason 2 – Penetrating Damp
- Reason 3 – Improve thermal performance
However, with so many types of render available and so many applications for the external design of your house, you may find it hard to know where to begin in investigating the right render for your project.

Dry Lining refers to the process used when attaching plaster-based sheet boards to either a wooden stud framework, metal stud work or direct-to-brick or block works using an adhesive compound in a process called dot & dab.
It is popular, on both new build applications and refurbishment projects.
There are many different types of board used in dry lining, each one suited to a particular purpose or need, from standard wall boards to specialty boards: –
- Moisture Boards
Used for bathrooms and rooms with high levels of condensation.
- Fireline boards
Especially suited where additional support is required for extended fire retardation.
- Sound boards
Used to reduce sound travel through walls and partitions or coupled with resilient bar can offer sound protection between floors.
- Insulated Boards
Coupled with a layer of insulation these boards can be used to reduce heat loss and lower carbon emissions.
Whatever the application there is a board to suite, and using the correct board for the job makes all the difference. Call Professional Plastering Services today and make sure your next project has the end result you expected.
