There are countless people across the UK looking for “renderers near me”. With good reason too. So how do you go about finding them? In this post, we’ll discuss the importance of finding the best renderers near you and how to make your search a whole lot easier.
Why choose a renderer near you
Whether you’re covering over brickwork or re-rendering your house, it’s always best to seek the advice and services of a professional renderer. Not least because rendering takes years of practice to master – so it’s by no means a DIY job.
Ideally, you want someone local. As well as being familiar with local properties, they’ll be nearby should you need them again in future – for additional work or just a bit of advice. Needless to say, choosing a renderer near you also means you’re supporting a local tradesperson – and in turn, your local economy.
Finding the best renderers near you
When it comes to finding the best renderers, there are four main factors you’ll want to keep in mind…
Qualifications provide a solid foundation for all professional renderers. An NVQ in External Render or City & Guilds rendering course will fit the bill, although many plastering courses also include units on external render.
As well as having the right training and qualifications, it’s important that renderers have put their skills into practice. Ideally, you want someone with a few years of experience as a minimum. As well as proving they have spent considerable time mastering the art of rendering, it’s usually a good reflection on their customer service and end results if they’ve been able to stick around for several years.
A renderer’s choice of products will undoubtedly impact the final results on your walls. There are various types of render, including silicone, acrylic and even cork, all of which have their own benefits. Ask whether renderers use a specific type or look for certification from a particular brand.
Accreditations provide a much-needed trust factor when you’re comparing renderers near you. Whether it’s general tradesperson schemes like TrustMark and SafeContractor, or more specific certifications for plasterers and renderers, accreditations show that they have been vetted and approved by an independent body.
