What are the Benefits of Rendering your Home?

There are many benefits to rendering the exterior of your property such as improving the look of your home, saving energy and increasing the value of your property. Continue reading this blog post to discover the main benefits of rendering your home. 

Protects your Building 

One of the main benefits of externally rendering your home is the protection from harsh weather conditions it offers to the building. Rendering the exterior of the building will act as a waterproof layer of protection for the brick or stone underneath. 

Over time, harsh weather conditions such as rain, wind, hail and snow can deteriorate the building’s structure, rendering can help prevent this from happening. The waterproof properties of the render can also protect your walls and floors from dampness and condensation which will result in mould and rotting. 

Use a high-quality product such as K-Rend to ensure the render is waterproof and doesn’t crack over time. At APS, we use K-Rend for most of our rendering projects as they are the leading rendering manufacturer in the UK. 

Transforms your Homes Aesthetic 

It’s clear to differentiate a freshly rendered home in the UK from a property that has old, cracked render or even a building that hasn’t been rendered. Rendering your property completely transforms how your home looks as it offers a smooth, well-maintained, clean and modern look to your home. 

There are many different colours and textures of rendering which means there’s a choice for everyone. You can choose a specific type of render which suits your style and personal taste for your home. It also makes your home much more appealing to potential buyers if you choose to sell your home down the line.

House extensions are becoming increasingly popular in the UK as people desire a larger living area, especially as a family grows. An issue with home extensions is that depending on various factors such as an older home, you will likely be able to tell where the extension has been constructed. Rendering the outside of your property will create a seamless finish between the old and new, giving the appearance that the home was all constructed at the same time.

Better Insulation 

Rendering will better insulate your home, saving you money on your energy bill and decreasing your carbon footprint. Adding render to the outside of your home will help keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer. This is because the layer of render will act as a barrier for heat trying to escape. 

In an uninsulated home, around a third of the heat energy is lost through the heat escaping. Although your home won’t be as insulated as if you used external wall insulation, rendering your home will still add a layer of insulation, saving you money and making your home a nicer environment to live in year-round. 

Increases Property Value 

Due to all of the benefits that come with rendering your home, it will increase the value of your property. The improved aesthetic and thermal efficiency will make your home much more appealing to potential buyers which will increase the value of your home. Not only will the price of your home increase, but you will also be saving money on your energy bill as you won’t need to use as much heating or air conditioning.
