The Traditional Sand Cement Finish

Mix renders are very good but we are moving with the times that are monocouche and Prorend colourtex because of their strength, appearance and benefit of low maintenance to the property.

 

Monocouche

Monocouche is a one-coat render system that is scraped back to a textured finish, of which there are many colours to choose from. The advantage is that this system can be applied in one coat therefore scaffold and site time is minimised.

 

ProRend Colourtex System

If you are looking for a render system that will last for years to come ProRend Colourtex is the system for you.   This attractive render is available in a wide range of colours.   The colours are based upon the popular NCS colour system.  Choose whichever colour you require and we will send it off for colour matching or choose one of our 16 in house colours that we keep in stock.

ProRend Colourtex is suitable for application onto the widest range of substrates with an appropriate proven base coat and is available in 2 textured finishes – Uniform 1.5m (the mos popular) and Grained 3m.

Ideal substrates for this premier render system  include:

  • Brickwork
  • Block Work
  • Pre-cast concrete
  • Render carrier board
  • Insulation, including: expanding polystyrene and mineral fibre
  • New sand cement
  • Existing render

Promesh will be under bedded over the entire building offering incredible strength and reduced risk of cracking.  As long as your building has no movement within the foundations your ProRend system will outlive any render on the market today.
