Finding A Reputable Rendering Applicator

When looking to render a house and find out a little more about how much does rendering cost, you should be sure to use an approved applicator and renderers with plenty of rendering experience. Regardless of which business or applicator you choose, we only recommend applicators with a proven track record in all aspects of external house rendering. You could even ask a series of questions to check on the credibility of whichever rendering company you are considering to use to render the back and front of your house and ensure they have 5 star reviews. If you would like any advice on this, please contact our rendering team for a free quote and consultation.

We advise that you should be extremely wary of people willing to have a go, who have never applied these types of renders or products before or have a little to no experience using modern rendering techniques. If the finish is not right the first time it can be even more expensive to correct. In some instances, it can be double the initial labour and material cost of the application of the render if it has to be removed and re-rendered.

How Much Does Rendering Cost?

How much to render a house depends on various factors. Determining the cost of rendering a house comes down to a few key points including how much does render cost per m2, the size of your property, how much scaffolding is required to achieve the appropriate access, how much waste will need to be disposed off after project completion and what type of render material will the property be finished with.

Before starting any rendering project it’s best practice for us to come and visit the property to properly create a step by step process covering the entire job from start to finish. A typical process for applying render to a house is to erect scaffolding, protect windows and other fixtures, prepare the areas of application to fit EPS boards, application of the base coat and mesh, finish with the different external render finishes types we have on offer and then clean, dispose and tidy the site.

The prices listed are only estimates, they do not include scaffolding or removing existing render. Other costs to consider can be viewed towards the bottom of the page. Prices also vary around the UK. All works need to be visited, priced accordingly followed by a written quotation.

MAC Plastering recently rendered my elderly parents house after they had been badly let down and overcharged by another company. Chris was so supportive and patient with my parents who are vulnerable. He is without question the most professional workman we have had contact with. The quality of the rendering is immaculate. Chris/MAC are friendly, polite and extremely hardworking. The pricing was very reasonable and options fully explained to us. I cannot recommend him highly enough and he is obviously truly committed to putting the customers needs and requirements first. All round first class service and excellent workmanship!
