Are you thinking about re-rendering your House? As with any home improvement, it’s important to weigh the benefits and determine whether they’re worth the cost. To make things easier, we’ve compiled a list of six advantages of a house re-rendering.
Nothing beats the smooth, uniform finish that re-rendering your home provides. As the before and after images in the Corksol gallery demonstrate, a high-quality re-render can truly transform the appearance of your home – from old and worn to fresh and new.
Furthermore, render is available in a variety of colours. With Corsksol, you can choose from over 30 different render colours to completely transform your home. Alternatively, choose a shade similar to your existing render to achieve the same look but with a smoother, new finish.
2. Less hassle
When old render begins to crack, it’s natural to want to repair or fill the cracks to prevent water from entering and maintain the appearance of your property. However, arranging and paying for those repairs (or even filling them yourself) can quickly become tedious and expensive.
Corksol re-coating eliminates the need for crack repairs for several years, saving you both time and money.
Cement rendering is the application of a sand, cement, and water mixture to a concrete, brick, or stone wall. It’s typically used as a protective layer on the exterior walls of modern, industrial, and brutalist homes, as well as a finishing coat on the interior and feature walls. It has numerous functional and aesthetic benefits, including the following.
3. Thermal retention
Many houses will have a render that was originally applied in the 2000s, 1990s, or even the 1980s, with render typically lasting between 20 and 40 years. Because building materials have advanced significantly since then, render can now provide significantly more thermal efficiency.
Re-rendering your home will add an insulative layer to the outside of your walls, making it more difficult for heat to pass through while keeping the walls breathable. As a result, the home is warmer in winter and cooler in winter, making it easier to maintain a comfortable temperature. You might even save money on your heating bills in the long run.
4. Noise insulation
Modern render can block more than just heat. Noise will also be more difficult to pass through with the right product. SprayCork render, which is based on the properties of cork, can provide a noise reduction of up to 12 dB.
As a result, your home will be more peaceful, with less noise from traffic, neighbours, and other sources outside.
Not to mention one of the primary functions of render: weatherproofing. When rendering wears and cracks, it offers less protection to the brick walls beneath it. Water can seep through over time, creating a vicious cycle with even more cracks and holes.
A Corksol re-coating will ensure that your walls are completely sealed against the elements, putting an end to problems with water ingress and dampness.
Finally, there is the issue of value. Re-rendering your home with a modern render product such as SprayCork allows you to create a low-maintenance property with great kerb appeal that is well insulated from heat and noise and weather-protected.
As you might expect, that’s a pretty appealing prospect for any buyer, which could result in a higher value for your property.
