Walk down any street in any town and you will see a huge array of properties. Flats, bungalows, terraces, cottages, detached houses, period and modern. And the finishes will differ from house to house – exposed brick, stone and coloured render.
So why do some people render their homes? What about external insulation? What are the benefits? Is it worth the cost?
There are a number of reasons why externally insulating and rendering your property is a good idea:
Improves thermal performance
Improves the aesthetics of your property if your external walls are looking shabby
Eradicates penetrating damp
Protects the brick, thereby increasing the life span of your walls
Reduces condensation on internal walls
Improves weatherproofing and sound resistance
Fills gaps and cracks, reducing draughts
Can be applied without disruption to your household
Doesn't reduce the floor area of your home
Historically, people would choose to render their property to give their home a facelift. And although the focus is now shifting more towards energy savings and efficiency, render can vastly improve the look of your house, particularly if the brickwork or existing render is looking a little tired.
Mention 'render' and a lot of people will automatically think of the 1970s pebbledash look. However, modern render comes in a wide variety of finishes and colours, with the standard being a smooth, clean white render.

Improved thermal performance
By choosing a product that provides full external wall insulation and render, you will see significant improvements in your home's thermal performance.
Houses built before 1919 are likely to have solid rather than cavity walls. Unfortunately, solid walls let through twice as much heat as cavity walls – bad news for your heating bills. However, by insulating these walls from the outside, you can make significant savings.
For example, according to the Energy Saving Trust, the average fuel bill savings for a gas heated, detached property with external insulation and render is a massive £455 per year. Carbon dioxide savings are, on average, 1,900kg per year.
