At BeConstructive, we make sure we use only the best products. As the render is the final stage of an external wall insulation system, it’s got to be perfect. That’s why we only use coloured-through renders. Whichever colour you choose, you can rest assured it will stay looking great for many years to come.
What makes our coloured render different?
Traditional renders comprise a mixture of sand, cement, lime and chemicals. When these renders are used, they can take weeks to dry. They then have to be painted over with your chosen colour. We can get your job done quicker by killing two birds with one stone! We do it differently because our render is coloured.
Having the job finished in one coat means no hanging around for the render to dry before painting, so the job will be done sooner. It will also be cheaper to use one material, instead of separate render and paint.
Another benefit of coloured through-render is that is more robust. A layer of paint will show the render underneath if it gets scratched or cracked. The coloured render we use is highly pigmented, and as a result, damage to the top layer will be much less obvious. This means you won’t have to re-render again in a few years’ time. Doing the job right will save you money in the long run.
Our coloured renders, available in several different finishes – silicone, silicone silicate and acrylic – can be used on almost any substrate. This gives you the most choice possible when choosing your external wall insulation materials.
Choose coloured render for your external wall insulation
Finishing your external wall insulation with a high-quality render is really important. It’s relied upon to protect your external wall insulation, so it needs to do its job. We always recommend choosing coloured render rather than paint because it’s adaptable, strong and weather-resistant. The EWI Pro renders we use are breathable, meaning they prevent damp, and flexible, making cracking very unlikely.
Best of all, the render looks great! Whatever colour you want your home to be, it can be mixed without fuss. The price of colours varies depending on the cost of the pigments.
