Through Coloured Render, Holton-Le-Clay

Through coloured render

The property had a large extension to the front and sides, and some remodelling work carried out internally. We were tasked with carrying the plastering and rendering works on behalf of the main contractor Pettigrew Builders Limited. The render used is left with a scratched finish to give it a textured appearance and is through colour to negate the need for a paint finish and reduce long term maintenance issues.

As can be seen from the far right picture, the render is darker in colour whilst the material is wet, drying off to become much lighter. Colour variation should be taken into account as the weather changes, for example, when it rains parts of the render will appear darker than others and the render may take on a mottled appearance. This is not a defect in the rener, just the nature of the product and how it is designed to work.
