Specialist Applicators of Decorative Render

High performance through coloured render is an excellent option to improve the aesthetic of a domestic or commercial property. Render can completely change the look of a property, with customers able to choose from a broad range of smooth and textured decorative finishes. New render can replace old, tired or cracked existing coatings, as well as painted brickwork, removing the necessity to re-paint the surface every few years. New build properties can also achieve a cutting edge look using a render solution.

Rendering a property can also help to address water ingress and penetrating damp issues, especially in older solid brick properties. Adding a layer of render to the outside wall of a property blocks the path of water in to the property and prevents this form of damp from occurring, although an expert should also be consulted before render is applied where damp is present.

The use of mesh cloth reinforcement in the base coat of the render also protects against cracking for a long lasting finish.



The application of high performance render offers a number of benefits:

Improves the appearance of the property

Increases the value of the property

A range of stylistic options available

Protects the wall from the effects of weather and rainwater penetration

While render will provide a slight insulating effect, External Wall Insulation is more suitable for solid wall properties with poor thermal efficiency.

Cornerstone was originally established as a specialist in wall coatings in 2004 and has externally rendered thousands of properties all over the UK, from existing and new build domestic properties to a range of high specification commercial buildings.

The main types of render include:


This is the most cost effective type of render and can offer real vibrancy of colour. However, acrylic render is not breathable, and is therefore not suitable for some properties.


This is very hard wearing type of render, and is breathable to an extent. It is a mid-price option and is usually suitable for most properties.


This type of render is the most expensive, but has lots of benefits, including being self-cleaning and breathable.

It is important that the right type of render is selected for the property, to ensure any problems are effectively addressed and any benefits maximised. 

Cornerstone’s technical experts can provide advice on the best solution for your property or development.

A ten year warranty is available for most render products.
