How to identify and repair cracked external render

How to repair cracked external render

‘Exterior rendering’. You may never have actually heard the term before, but if you want your home to have any chance whatsoever of standing up to the weather for years to come, you are going to want to get it acquainted with it – and fast.

Fortunately for you, we have put together this post that aims to outline everything you need to know. In this crash course on rendering you will learn how to identify whether your home’s render requires replacing as well as how and why getting the rendering process right is so important.

What is render?

Fundamentally, render is a mixture of cement. External render is the outermost layer of your home and – as the outermost layer of your home – it is tasked with braving rain, wind, sleet, snow and sun and emerging unscathed.

How do I know if my home needs rendering?

Identifying whether your home exterior needs a refresh can be relatively straightforward – it all depends on the current state of your home’s exterior. Cracks and crevices are of course an obvious signifier of a problem.

On the other end of the scale, less visible but just as serious, is an inadequate product coating your home. Unfortunately, most masonry paints aren’t designed in the same way as weatherproof coatings are, meaning that they are unable to mount a serious and sustained defence against the attacks of the weather.

So, unless your exterior surface is flawless or you have recently invested in a quality weatherproof coating for your home, it is well worth considering the merits of exterior wall rendering.
