Time-Served Traditional Rendering in Leigh on Sea and Across Essex

Here at J Brett Plastering & Rendering, we take great pride in our reputation as one of the leading providers of exterior rendering in Leigh on Sea and the surrounding Essex areas. Since our establishment in 1991, and with personnel sharing over 100 years of trade and industry experience, we provide workmanship in house rendering of the highest possible standards. As a time-served company, we offer a traditional rendering service for local property owners that simply can't be beaten.

 

We provide traditional rendering in lime-based and cement-based forms to suit the needs of Leigh on Sea properties of any age. To avoid any costly future repairs, it's vital that the correct style of house rendering is applied.

Lime-Based Traditional Rendering

 

For owners of period properties in Leigh on Sea and the neighbouring Essex regions, the continued use of lime-based exterior rendering plays a pivotal role in the ongoing health and functionality of the building. Properties from the Georgian, Edwardian and Victorian eras were designed and built with lime-based house rendering in mind. This form of traditional rendering helped to control problems like penetrating damp and water ingress by soaking up moisture like a sponge. When the weather turned warm again, this moisture would be evaporated out in to the air.

Property owners in Leigh on Sea or the Essex area who replace this porous traditional rendering with a cement based option create an impenetrable barrier. In such cases, moisture can longer pass through the house rendering, but rather stays inside the property.

 

This soon leads to damp and rotting problems that the lime-based exterior rendering helped to control.

The qualities provided by lime-based traditional rendering include:

 

  • Complete Property Breathability
  • Flexibility to Move without Cracking
  • The Ability to Bond to Numerous Substrates
  • A Low Maintenance Nature
  • Aesthetically Pleasing Period Feature
  • Colour can be Added Before Application
  • A Durable, Long-Lasting Finish
  • An Environmentally-Friendly Process

Cement-Based Traditional Rendering

Developed after lime-based exterior rendering, cement-based options provide properties in Leigh on Sea and the wider Essex area with a much harder, stronger surface in comparison. Like lime-based house rendering, cement-based render has no natural waterproof qualities. Any weatherproofing coatings are the last step in the application process, usually in the form of enhanced paint. In fact, painting is the only way to add colour to the otherwise grey material.

 

In addition to its impenetrable qualities not allowing moisture to pass through, cement-based exterior rendering is also prone to crack when incorrectly applied to period properties. Timber-framed buildings move more than their modern equivalents. While lime-based house rendering has the flexibility to make this movement, cement-based options are simply too hard and will eventually crack.

 

We cannot stress enough how important it is that homeowners in Leigh on Sea and the Essex area apply the right house rendering to suit the age of their home.

 

As a more cost-effective option with a far quicker installation time, cement-based traditional rendering provides fast, long-lasting results for owners of modern properties in the Leigh on Sea and wider Essex areas.

The qualities of cement-based exterior rendering include:

 

  • An Extremely Strong Nature
  • A Cost-Effective Material
  • A Simple Application Process
  • The Ability to Mix Offsite
  • It can be Painted any Colour
  • It Cures Comparatively Quickly

 

In addition, we also provide a full range of pebbledash. The term “pebbledash” doesn't refer to anything in regard to the exterior rendering, only the decorative effect that we apply to it. We apply pebbledash finishes to both lime-based and cement-based house rendering.
