Insualted Rendering Systems

In some older houses it is not possible to have cavity wall insulation installed, which means that the walls are more susceptible to damp. One way of refurbishing older buildings and preventing a build up of moisture is to have one of the new insulated render systems applied to your exterior walls. Many building companies now have different products and applications that are designed to damp proof homes and lower the heat loss that many home owners experience. Insulated render systems are ecologically friendly often in both their composition as well as their energy saving properties. When you choose a purpose made render to refurbish and older building it will have to be professionally applied. Renders that are specifically designed to improve the insulation in a building are not the kind of materials that can be utilised in a do it yourself project. While professional renders will be more expensive in the long run they are more cost effective not just for their energy saving properties but because they usually come with a warranty and will last longer than many other exterior wall renders.

Types of Insulated Render Systems

There are different types of insulated render systems but the one thing that they generally have in common is that they have to comply with certain building industry standards and should come with the relevant certification. It is unwise to go for any insulated render system that does not have the correct certification because it will not carry the same guarantees. Systems may be light, medium or heavyweight and the type you choose will depend on the building and substrata that is being rendered. There is a range of finishes available in insulated render systems, depending on which company product you choose. Along with traditional, smooth renders, there are scratched colour render systems, rough cast renders and silicone enriched renders. Some manufacturers will provide a traditionally smooth and painted finish.


Silicone may be added as a variant in some systems as this provides even greater water resistance than acrylic renders and gives extra protection in hard weather locations. The type of insulated render systems and variants available will depend very much on the type of products that a building company makes use of. If you want a particular type of system then you may need to shop around for a professional that can supply what you require.

Functions and Benefits of Insulated Render Systems

An insulated render system will give you a durable, insulated and weatherproof exterior wall covering that reduces heat loss and helps to conserve energy. Insulated render systems are suitable for newly built homes and for refurbishing older ones. They provide a certain amount of sound proofing and help to control the condensation that can damage your exterior walls. When you have an insulated façade on your home it can significantly increase the comfort levels inside the building and will help to keep the structure of your home stable and dry, while at the same time helping to reduce harmful emissions. In the long run insulated render systems save homeowners money because they reduce the amount of general home maintenance needed.
