External Render on a new build

An external Render in a very basic form is, a coating that is applied to the external walls of a building. This provides a protective coating which prevents rain and weather penetration, Render also provides various aesthetical benefits as stated above.

Modern-day Render or Rendering can be grouped into three main categories, these include;

  • Mineral Render (cement based)
  • Acrylic Render
  • Silicon Render

Render can be applied to have a smooth and flawless finish or to have a textured appearance, it’s really just down to personal preference, what finish you choose for your Render.


External Roughcast

What is External Roughcasting?

Roughcast differs from Render mainly due to the type of application. Render is generally smooth or has a textured finish. Whereas Roughcast is a dry aggregate thrown onto a wet surface, to catch the stones to form a decorative finish.

Roughcast is applied to the exterior of a building, for the same reason Render is applied; to provide decorative and water tight level of protection.

Roughcast (also called ‘wet-dash’ in Cumbria and ‘harling’ in Scotland) can be looked at as a type of Render, that has a coarse finishing coat containing gravel thrown in a premixed state onto a wall.
