Pointing & Rendering
Rendering is the application of sand and cement to the external surface of a building. This is done mainly for aesthetic reasons; however it also aids in weatherproofing the building. We offer a number of different varieties of render and we will help you choose the right option for your home.
Coloured render is available and you can even have acrylic render which is good for increasing water resistance. We are also experienced in render repair and try to match the existing colour and texture when fixing any damage that has occurred.
Pointing is the application of mortar between stones and brickwork, to either repair damaged pointing or to refurbish existing pointing. We offer a repointing service to replace any existing pointing that may have become worn, cracked or defective through weathering and age.
It is important to note the out and out replacement is not the only answer. There are now polymer additives which you can add to render which not only colour, but also repel water and allow vapour to pass out. We can offer similar solutions when re-pointing walls to stop the degradation of the mortar over time, making it stronger and crack resistant.
