Our builder is suggesting we use k-rend instead of normal render. Can anyone explain the benefits? Is K-rend more expensive than sand and cement per SQM? Is there much difference for labour rates? Cheers
We have k-rend on our house and its been on 6 years now and it looks really grubby. common problem is algae growing on it which at some point will need to be cleaned and will probably cost a good few hundred quid. its a bit annoying as they advertise it as maintenance free.
Biggest issue is the mould and the coloured render brands do sell products but I’m not sure how effective they are. Builders do seem to like applying it. I imagine it will be slightly cheaper for labour but overall the cost will be more due to the expensive product.
