A Full Face-Lift

Through Coloured Render, Thermocromex, Lime Based Rendering

 

During our initial visit to the property, it was apparent that the rendering to the exterior walls was in a bad state of repair. Many cracks had appeared over the years, and in certain areas it looked like it would not take much for the render to fall off of its own accord.

On speaking with the client they informed us that at some point during the property's history, a new coat of sand and cement render had been applied to all the walls, however, there was already a layer of render underneath the sand and cement render that we could see; this went along way to explaining why many of the cracks had appeared, and the area's of hollow render which had de-bonded. 

We discussed what the desired outcome for the client would be, and then discussed the options which we could provide. Ultimately, all the render would need to be removed, both layers, otherwise the same issues would keep reoccuring.

Due to the age of the property, the differing substrates which became known on removal of the render, and the overall finish that the client was looking for, the product which was chosen was a lime based through coloured render from St. Astiers.The client also wished for the 'faux' stone pediments above the windows to be recreated.

Our skilled tradesmen were ablve to recreate these in a contrasting colour, built up over several days using a series of hard formed angles.
