Lime render is a very breathable render and can accommodate limited movement without cracking which makes it particularly suitable for use on period properties and wooden framed building. Animal hair has traditionally been used as a binding agent within base coats of lime renders.
Pebble Dash is a decorative exterior masonry coating applied to a wall using a wet mortar with pebbles (or spar) cast onto it.
Sand and Cement Render
Sand and cement rendering is the application of a premixed layer of sand and cement usually intended to be textured or painted after application. Depending on the finish required, rendering can be fine or coarse, textured or smooth. Different finishes can be created by using different tools including brushes and sponges.
At DTL we use The K Rend range of modern renders. K Rend is the UK's largest independent silicone render manufacturer. K Rend products are designed to give a durable weatherproof coating and a natural finish, incorporating silicone water repellents as an integral part of the cement based render system. The silicone technology imparts a high degree of water repellence to the render surface whilst allowing water vapour to pass through the render and let the substrate breath. The water repellent quality of the product ensures a freshly rendered appearance for an extended period of time.
K Rend has a prestigious BS EN 998:2003 Kitemark® so you can be ensured of the best quality product.
There are many options in the K Rend range these are just a few of the most popular:
