What is rendering?
Rendering systems are ready-to-use technological and material solutions, which allow the application or repair of new or existing façade finishes. They can be used upon residential buildings: detached, semi-detached or terraced, as well as commercial and service facilities, etc. Rendering systems are intended for use during renovation work and during the construction of new buildings.
Johnstones, our material supplier, have an in depth guide, specifying on what rendering entails. Contact us for how we can tailor to your needs.
Rendering, also known as ‘Stucco’, is a common feature of many residential and smaller commercial properties throughout the West Midlands region, especially among housing stock dating back 50-100 years. Residential rendering came in many different forms during that period, from thin-coat applications to highlight architectural features, to full renders with smooth or pebble dashed finishes. On older buildings, it is important to spot when a render begins to fail, and to have repairs made. Renders are less frequently seen on modern buildings, although they remain a viable and attractive alternative to other surface finishes such as cladding. At AMP da Silva Painting and Decorating Ltd, we know how to match our repair materials to your existing render, and make it look as good as new.
The primary purpose of rendering is to protect the building materials beneath, and it does this very well when kept in good repair. Other advantages are to allow for the application of various surface features and textures, rather than brick or stone. Pigments mixed with the render can provide a finish of almost any colour you can imagine, or a plain finish can be easily painted. Small image-conscious businesses, such as boutique retailers, often contact us about commercial rendering to make their premises stand out on the high street.
The rendering systems we use at AMP da Silva Painting and Decorating Ltd come from Johnstone’s, the respected building and decorating materials supplier, and there are products suitable for a wide range of applications. While rendering is often thought of as part of the work of the building trade, the techniques used for application and the importance of a finely finished job place it firmly within the purview of a professional decorating company.

Our rendering services deliver:
Protection: Rendering systems provide protection for structural elements. They help protect them against atmospheric (rain, snow, wind) and operational (ageing processes, mechanical damage) factors.
Design: Rendering systems offer a wide range of possible façade finishes: from traditional smooth plaster to modern thin-coat render with a decorative and attractive appearance.
Colour: The render and paint for façades included in ATLAS and AVAL rendering systems are coloured within the mass (body tinted) with UV-resistant pigments. This rich palette of colours allows us to be independent when choosing the final characteristic of the facade.
