Why you should render your walls
Guard against penetrating damp
Rendering your home will help prevent penetrating issues and water ingress. Certain types of bricks especially those in exposed areas become susceptible to damp when they are exposed to the elements over a prolonged period of time. Water will seep in through the solid brick wall and into the house, which is never a good thing. Incorporating a layer of render to the external part of the wall of your home creates a barrier that blocks the passage of water and stops damp from happening.
When you apply a protective coating to the walls of your home, it prevents water from getting in. Rendering is also a great way to prevent penetrating damp.
When you render your home, it will keep it warm in the winter and cool in the summer. So, you can enjoy a comfortable temperature in your home all through the year as well as lower energy bills.
One of the major reasons why property owners have rendering done on their building is to improve its look. A layer of render coat can immediately brighten up shabby looking walls and give a dull looking house a facelift. If your property is a mishmash of brick or has an unattractive/tired look from years of exposure, adding a layer of render will transform the look of your property and give it a smooth, uniform finish. In the 70s it was typically pebbledash but now the standard is a smooth render.
When done properly, rendering offers many benefits:
it’s a great way to cover up unattractive brickwork, it gives a simple clean finish to modern house design and can completely transform a dated looking house into a stunning architectural piece.
At Elite Builders London, we have over 40 years of experience working in the rendering industry. In that time we have worked with many clients in the London area in the following sectors:
We can restore the look of any type of brickwork by removing graffiti and cleaning away dirt. With our 40 years of experience, we can guarantee successfully restoration and remove render on your property in London.
For Experts in General Construction and Renovation
External insulated render
Did you know, over 30% of a building’s energy is lost through its external walls, and that in most cases, a cement solution will not give the complete energy efficiency your building needs? To optimize the environmental performance of your building, we recommend that you use external insulated renders to cover the building walls, increase its terminal efficiency and optimize internal temperature all year round in order to reduce how much you spend on utilities as well as your carbon footprint.

Our render systems
The acrylic render comes in pre-mixed tubs of acrylic resin. When it is laid, it creates a stained and water-resistant surface. Acrylic render is the cheapest render solution (in terms of materials and labour costs) and delivers a stunning aesthetic look.
Monocouchei is a French word which means one layer or a mono-layer. Monocouche renders do not need a base coat and are great for new build properties. In addition, monocouche renders can come as polymer or lime render in whatever colour you choose.
Silicones or silicone slate render is a top-of-the-line acrylic system with many advantages. It is one of the easiest render systems to apply. It has hydrophobic properties (it is a self-cleaning render) and it is one of the most flexible render systems available – the possibility of it cracking is very low.
The Elite Builders silicone render system is innovative and delivers a water-repellant surface.
The Elite Builders London team has delivered many high-quality external renders designed to produce weatherproof coating and have a natural finish. We are committed to delivering to our customers innovative, excellent high-quality renders services in London.
Through coloured render system
Through coloured render is a mix-and-match batch of render, pre-coloured during the manufacturing stage. This type of render can be applied using a spray, which reduces the amount of scaffolding needed and the cost of labor. Through coloured renders are especially great because they do not require painting and provide long-term protection any surface they are laid on. When you use through-coloured renders, it produces a stunning pebble dashed finish that perfectly contrasts the render colour against the spar colour.
Traditional cement render
Cement renders are stronger than lime render, which makes them one of the most durable types of rendering currently available. Cement renders are sealed or painted to provide extra support to a building when applied. Cement renders also prevent the penetration of damp or water through exterior walls.
Brick slips and brick panels
Brick slips are typically used in conservation areas for properties and houses that require external wall insulation but cannot be rendered. They are also used for a building where the original brick is stained or chipped.
Lime render is one of the best options for old houses, especially those built in the 17th century. Line render gives old houses a natural-looking finish that doesn’t alter the original look of the building. Traditional lime render also is more forgiving and flexible than modern cement (cement render should never be applied or used on old solid wall units).
Pebbledash is a durable rendering product mostly used in coastal towns because they keep the elements at bay. Pebbledash is also a popular choice for areas where graffiti is a problem as it cannot be written on using marker pens. Stones (pebbledash) are available in multiple colours and can be applied dry or wet, which means you can see the actual stone and still enjoy the benefits of rendering.
Polymer renders are a modern rendering solution. They are made using white Portland cement. Polymer renders has an integral lime render application provided by the silicone water repellents incorporated as part of the base of the render system. With silicone technology, a high degree of water repellency is produced on the render surface without hindering water vapour from passing through the surface, so the substrate can breathe through the nylon reinforced finish coat.
Polymer renders are also available in monocouche render, which removes the need for a base coat.
Monocouche renders are typically used on new build lightweight breeze blocks or lightweight blocks and extension joints are often needed to prevent the cement from cracking. Stop beads and colour-matched uPVC corner beads are used to improve the appearance or give the render a better contract

The first coat is usually about 9.5mm thick (or thicker for older walls) and often contain a waterproof additive. While it is wet, the coat is scratched to provide a good key for the second (floating) coat.
