Rendering is the application of a mortar mixture onto an external elevation. It can be used to protect perishing or defective brickwork or simply as a decorative feature to enhance the appearance of a building.
The addition of a good quality, expertly applied render system such as SM Rendering Contractors can provide, could increase the lifespan of the brickwork below by protecting against penetrating damp and weathering.
There are several different types of rendering. SM Rendering Contractors specialise in the following six types of rendering: –
Monocouche Coloured Render, Rough Cast Coloured Render, Heritage Lime Render, EWI Insulated Render, Brick Effect Render and Liquid Screeds.
are applied over a flooring surface to give a smooth, level surface for carpets or tiles to be laid onto. They can also be poured over the heating elements of under-floor heating systems because they are self-levelling and only require a thin layer to be applied. This creates a more efficient and environmentally friendly under-floor heating system as more heat penetrate it.
SM Rendering Contractors favour machine application for both applying rendering and liquid screeds. It has many benefits to both our team and the customer by creating a consistent distribution of render product so helping to produce a high-quality finish. Therefore, it is both highly efficient and cost-effective as a method of render application.
We use the Putzmeister P11 spray pump machine because it has a low-noise diesel engine which has varying speeds for precision application. It is able to pump renders and flow screed up to 70 meters as well as being able to reduce mess and waste whilst working due to its slow-move air supply making delicate areas easier to spray.
All of the team at SM Rendering Contractors are fully trained and experienced in its use.
