Some Of Your Options When It Comes To Wall Cladding. It is a fact of life that everything ages.
As time passes, we get older, and we don’t look as great as we did at 20. A lot of plants are annuals and only live for a year. Many birds only live for three or four years. So, different things age at different rates. Take your house, for instance. Rendering Your Walls Provides Many Benefits. As the years go by, the walls of a home suffer from wear and tear.
Let’s face it, they are out there in all weathers, and they suffer damage as a result. If your walls are painted, you have to repaint them every couple of years in exposed areas, just in order to keep them looking nice. The Many Benefits Of External Thermal Wall Insulation. Most people today are keen to become more “green”.
They recognise that the planet is suffering from climate change, and that a lot of the reason for that is in the way that we use energy. This is why more and more people are looking to invest in solar panels, heat pumps, solar water heating, and so on, all of which can reduce our carbon footprint. However, before you start spending money on these sorts of things, you need to take a step back and consider your home’s insulation. You probably have insulation in the loft, and that makes a considerable amount of sense because a lot of heat will otherwise go straight out through the roof.

What You Need To Know About Rendering The Walls Of Your Home. Render is a coating applied to the external walls of a building, often with the sole intention of improving the appearance, and indeed a coat or two of render on the walls can make your home, shop, or office look like brand new.
However, renders can perform some other functions as well as just the aesthetics. Adding a render will give your home some extra insulation. It will also help to protect the walls from the effects of weather, and some renders are perfect for use in coastal homes where there may be salt spray, or other areas which are exposed to the weather such as high hills.
Traditionally a render was made of lime, sand, and water which created a coating that was flexible and breathable, so is ideal for use on walls which needed to breathe. Over the last few decades, it has lost a certain amount of popularity, but just recently has been making something of a comeback. Lime mortar does require a specialist who knows how to work with it. Should You Insulate Your Walls Inside Or Outside? If you want to reduce your heating bills by quite a considerable amount, it would be well worthwhile to consider installing thermal wall insulation in Guildford.
Around one third of all heat lost from a home goes out through the walls, and according to the Energy Saving Trust a typical semi-detached home could save £165 a year by adding insulation to the walls, while a detached home would save £280 ( There are some other benefits too, one of which is that by adding thermal wall insulation you will also help to keep your home cooler in the summer.
Insulation slows down the transfer of all heat, whichever way it is going, so not only does it stop heat going out in the winter, but also helps prevent it coming in during the summer. Heat always moves towards cold, so in summer your home will remain cooler.

Why Render Your Home In Reading? It’s a fair question, but in fact there are several reasons why you might want to render your Reading home.
The first thing is that by rendering your home you will make the brickwork weatherproof. That means that, regardless of the condition of the brickwork itself, the render will protect it and prevent damp and rain getting through. Next, and from the point of view of many people the most important point, is the aesthetics. A coat of render on the walls of your home will make it look as though it has just been built – and what is even better is that many renders today are what is known as through-coloured.
That means that they have pigments mixed in with them so that the colour is the same all the way through. If you have had an extension added to your home, it may well look completely different from the main part of the house and stand out as an add-on. Another very big issue is pebbledash. Some Of The Different Types Of Render For Your Home. There isn’t a person in the land who would not like to save money on their energy bills.
We may use gas or electric for heating and cooking, but we all use electricity for lighting and to run TV’s, laptops, and other electrical gadgets. However, a major part of energy bills goes on heating – whether that is by gas or by electric – so anything that you can do to reduce that cost has to be a good idea.

If you are considering investing in solar panels, solar water heating, or perhaps a ground source or air source heat pump for your home in Milton Keynes, the first thing to do is to maximise the insulation.

Quite possibly the very best way to brighten up the outside of your home is to cover the walls with a render.
This is an external coating which is applied quite thickly when compared with paint, and will hide all those cracks and damaged brickwork and cover up faulty pointing. Not only that, but depending upon the type of render that is used, it will make your home waterproof, it won’t attract algae and dirt, and best of all, you will never need to paint the walls again. So instead of paying for the walls to be painted every two or three years they will look great for as long as the render lasts and, again depending on the render, this can be as much as 50 years.
Render it now, and never worry about it again. The type of render that we will suggest at UK Spray Rendering will to some extent depend on what type of walls you have.
