Coloured render offers a stylish appearance that brickwork and pebbledash simple can’t compete with. It’s a long-lasting alternative to paint, providing much more exterior protection for your home.

But once you’ve decided on coloured render, you’ll need to choose the right product as well as the right render colour for your home. Read on as we discuss some of your options…

Choosing the best coloured render

When you want to add some colour to the exterior of your home, the initial choice is generally between paint and coloured render. While paint is cheaper up-front, it won’t provide the same smooth coverage or durability as coloured render. Once it inevitably starts to flake away in a few years’ time, you’ll need to fork out to do it all again, making it potentially more expensive in the long run.

With all of that in mind, it’s no wonder many homeowners opt for coloured render instead. However, it’s worth noting that not all renders are equal. Drawing on the natural qualities of cork, Corksol’s exterior wall coating comes with a range of additional benefits – as well as adding a pop of colour to your home.

It’s highly water and weather resistant, 7-8 more insulative than traditional renders and naturally flexible so it can resist cracking. Crucially, it has a modern, uniform finish with an expected lifespan of over 20 years (with a 15-year guarantee), so it will look the part for years (and decades) to come.

Picking the right render colour for your home

Once you’ve chosen the best coloured render product, it’s time to choose the right render colour for your UK home.

You might want to consider the colours of nearby properties for a complementary look, with traditional colours including greys, soft browns and classic white. But don’t be afraid to opt for something more colourful like a blue, green or purple just because of your neighbours.

Above all else, it comes down to your personal preference. This is another area where Corksol can help. Our colour range is complete with almost 30 shades, so you can always find the perfect render colour for your house.
