Westville will ensure the right rendering product and application technique is employed to suit any individual project.
Reduced Energy Bills.
By thickening the walls, you’re also increasing the insulation of the building, cutting energy bills and helping the environment.
Westville have been providing commercial rendering for over 30 years, completing many prestigious external rendering projects all around the UK.
Rendering is a technique which has been used for centuries and is the application of a thin layered mixture of cement, sand, and lime plaster to either brick, cement, stone or mud walls of a property. It is a popular practice all over the world, particularly throughout Southern Europe where many different styles can be seen.

How do we apply it?
When Rendering a wall for the first time it is particularly important that the wall is clean. Westville’s first job on our work with St Martin Community Centre is to ensure all walls are thoroughly cleaned and treated to protect against mould and plant growth. A harling coat of aggregate and lime will then be applied and left for a few days to increase the bonding for future coats. After the initial coat has been left to ‘cure’, the first coat of actual render mixture is trowelled on – just like plaster – in even coats of around 8-10mm. Once this has thoroughly dried out the interior/exterior wall will then be ready for any appropriate decoration product to be applied.
As with all our clients we built a great working relationship with Novus on our work at Greyfriars Stafford. This involved constant communication with them to ensure the right rendering product and application technique is employed to suit any individual project.
