ADD VALUE TO YOUR HOUSE
The number one reason historically for rendering a property is to improve the look. Adding a render coat can really brighten up a shabby looking wall, and it gives the opportunity to give the whole house a facelift.
Some properties can have a real mish-mash of brick types, unattractive wear from years of exposure, or just look tired and unattractive. Adding a layer of render gives you the opportunity to completely change the look of the property – giving you a smooth uniform finish. Back in the 70’s that seemed to mean pebbledash, but nowadays the standard is usually a white smooth render.
Another reason people choose to render their homes is to deal with water ingress and penetrating damp issues. Some forms of brick, especially in exposed areas, can be liable to damp if exposed to the elements over a prolonged period of time. Water gets through the solid brick wall and in to the house, causing a host of problems in the home. Adding a layer of render to the outside wall of the home blocks the path of water in to the property and prevents this form of damp from occurring. Of course, this is only really the case on older solid brick properties. If you have a cavity wall, you shouldn’t be getting penetrating damp like this.
If your render is old and tired, or perhaps cracked, it might be necessary to re-render also. This will involve stripping off the old render and starting afresh on the exposed wall. You may also have painted brickwork, which tends to get scruffy looking very quickly; in which case installing render would be a good alternative to having to re-paint every few years.
