Choosing your render colour
Choosing your render colour Don’t be afraid of white
We often hear people say that they don’t want to choose white because of the discolouration that tends to happen with white walls. The difference is that our silicone render does not allow water droplets to collect on it – it is hydrophobic. This means that the render tends to keep its colour much better than your typical painted sand-cement wall. Around half of our customers go for a white finish, and we haven’t had any complaints yet!
White doesn’t mean bright
Many people also avoid white because it can be a bit too bright and shiny. The good news is that because of the texture of the silicone render, the white is much duller than on a perfectly smooth surface – it isn’t too bright in our opinion.
Lighter colours last longer
When choosing a colour, you should be aware of the differences between the lighter and darker colours in terms of their cost, suitability for certain walls and longevity.
