Here at CRS we use a number of different render systems to enable us to work to a variety of customer specifications.
Monocouche render is a modern approach for rendering as it can be applied in one single coat to provide a weather resistant façade to the elevations of a building constructed of masonry. The pre-mixed product is pigmented and available in a range of colours. It is low maintenance as does not require periodic painting of a decorative top coat like more traditional renders.
Application – the products are pre-mixed removing the frailties of site batching and only require adding of clean water, these materials are principally designed to be applied by mechanised methods. Render pumps maximise efficiency in the distribution of the mortar and speed of application (they can however also be applied by hand).
External Wall Insulation
An external wall insulation system (or EWI) is a thermally insulated, protective, decorative exterior cladding.
Application – EWI systems generally comprise firstly an insulation layer and secondly, a protected weatherproof finish (usually a render, although brick slips, tiles, and decorative boards can also be used). Insulating render can also be an advantage in certain locations.
