Paul Hesketh Plastering - About Rendering

Many plasterers and renderers still to this day offer sand and cement as and external render to properties.  At Paul Hesketh Plastering we only offer products that we know compliment our workmanship.  We do not offer sand and cement, as we cannot guarantee how long it will last for. We use Kabe Farben, a company that have been in production longer than Dulux paint, Kabe Farben are a swiss manufacturer and offer a 25 year guarantee on their rendering systems.  
Whilst the rendering system we use costs more than the standard sand and cement, we can guarantee that they will still look amazing in 25 years time.  There are many benefits in having your property, garden walls or even your BBQ area rendered with Kabe Farben:

  • Completely water proof
  • Self-cleaning
  • Never need to paint
  • 25 year guarantee
  • Potential to improve the value of your property
  • Definitely improves curb appeal

How we render your property

  • Firstly we apply corner beads to all corners and edges of all walls, windows and doors to provide a nice sharp edge.
  • We then apply 'stop beads' just above the Damp Proof course at the bottom of the premises, again this provides a nice sharp edge.
  • We then apply a base coat of Kabe to all areas.
  • A layer of 'scrim' is then applied to the initial base coat, Srim is a nylon mesh which provides some flexibility to the wall, and can prevent cracking in case of natural movement.
  • We then apply a second layer of Kabe on top of the nylon scrim.
  • Finally after the base coats have had some to time to dry out we apply the final top coat of Kabe Farben Silicone thin coat in a colour of your choice, the think coat contains polymers.
  • Once the top coat has been applied we then 'rub up' the top coat to open up the polymers, this creates a small grain to the final finish
