There are many different types of render and depending on your requirements we can find an affordable, cost effective rendering option that matches your needs.
The external walls of your house are prone to damage caused by the weather. Rain, wind, frost, snow and direct sunlight can all erode and degrade bricks and blocks, leading to damp or crumbling walls.
External rendering of walls gives them protection, meaning they have a longer life and over time will need less maintenance.
The team at GK Rend offers affordable rendering solutions to help you deal with potential deterioration to your outside walls, whether on a new build or older property.
Depending on what rendering option you need, our expert rendering team will cover the exterior wall surface with a sand and cement render, a lime based render or a synthetic resin based colour render.
Good plastering of internal walls and ceilings is key to making any home or building an attractive place ready for decoration. GK Rend are experts at assessing the plastering needs of any project before proposing a tailor made, affordable plastering solution.
What’s the difference between plastering and rendering? Primarily rendering is involved with the coating of external walls to prevent weathering and damage. Plastering on the other hand uses different mixes and coats to produce an acceptable wall or ceiling finish to a building before decoration.
Our highly skilled plasterers use traditional hand tools to complete most work in 3 coats, consisting of a scratch coat to even out suction, a float coat to give an even surface and a finishing coat to produce a smooth finish ready for decoration.
However not all finished walls need be flat and smooth or finished in the traditional clay colour. We can also provide unique textural finishes for your project or use pigmented topcoats to add some colour to your finished walls.
Scratch back render
External wall insulation
One of the affordable decorative render finishes we can provide at GK Rend is scratch rendering. This is a new rendering technique that is normally used with coloured cement to create a render.
It involves coating the wall with two coats, firstly a scratch coat, which is then lightly scratched or scored with a specialist tool before the final coat is applied. This coat is thicker than the first. It is flattened before being given a final scratch.
Scratch render incorporates silicone technology so it has a high degree of water repellency, it has a choice of over 40 colours so doesn’t need to be painted and is very easily maintained.
As energy prices increase, it is often cost effective to reduce the amount you spend on heating your home by insulating it effectively. Many older homes and those that do not have cavity walls are much harder to insulate than buildings erected in the last 20 years.
External wall insulation (EWI) systems are becoming the affordable option to reduce heat loss and improve the thermal comfort of these homes. EWI systems significantly reduce energy loss by wrapping the building in a thermally resistant cladding before being rendered with a protective, weatherproof finish.
GK Rend are a registered external insulation contractor for South Essex and East London and can provide an affordable finished EWI system for your home, which will help reduce heating bills, reduce noise pollution, avoid damp and also give your home a facelift.
