Exterior Wall Repair and External Render Specialists Leeds

Exterior Wall Rendering – Rendering Your Home

JAG Wall Coatings have over 20 years’ experience renovating and rejuvenating exterior walls on domestic and commercial properties across the country. Based in Leeds and serving the wider area, we specialise in exterior home improvement services such as Exterior Wall Rendering and External Wall Coating.

Our customers come to us for a variety of issues with their existing exterior walls. Below are a number of scenarios that people come to us with

Do you have damaged walls?

Damaged Rendered Walls

Are your walls showing their age? Over time traditional Sand and Cement render can deteriorate and start to crumb. Cracks can appear which allows moisture to accumulate behind the rendered surface. When this happens, the render will start to crumble and can often lead to exposing the original brick or stone surface. Exposed bricks are very porous and will lead to penetrating damp issues. It is vitally important that you ensure your home is protected by repairing any damaged render so you do not have any exposed brick or stone work.

Is your existing Pebbledash falling off?

Damaged Pebbledash Render

Traditional Pebbledash render has been very popular over the years, but more and more customers are asking for solutions to repairing or covering up their old pebbledash surfaces. Usually, the main complaint is that cracks have appeared, or the pebbles are loosening and falling off, resulting in the customers having to sweep up around their property time and time again.

At JAG we have two main options for clients wishing to cover up their traditional pebbledash or Tyrolean surfaces.

Option 1 – Bagging and Wall Coating

Bagging is a term used to describe a procedure that offers a cost-effective way of stabilising your existing pebbledash walls in preparation for the application of a wall coating. This involves applying a slurry mix of render and brushing it on to the walls ensuring that it completely covers the surface and gets into all the existing cracks and holes. Once dried the walls are ready to receive the final wall coating which can be textured or smooth.

Option 2 – Two Coat Polymer Render and Wall Coating

This option will give a perfectly smooth finish which is achieved by using two coats of render. The first base coat is applied along with mesh to add extra stability to the walls. We then apply the second coat (finishing) to the walls, to cover the mesh and leave a smooth surface ready for the final wall coating. This can be applied via a spray or roller, depending on the product and final texture required.

Do you have surface cracks and peeling paint?

Flakey Paint on Rendered Walls

Rendered walls are usually painted with traditional masonry paints which will only last a few years before they will start to peel and look unsightly. Couple this with tired and weathered rendered surfaces and you are left with walls in a sorry state and in need of some tender loving care. We can offer a number of solutions to resolve these issues which include a patch and repair option. This is where we identify all the bad areas of your property and remove any loose paint and render. We then replace these areas and ensure that the surface is ready for the final wall coating.

Do you suffer from penetrating damp?

Penetrating Damp

Penetrating damp is usually caused by moisture making its way through your exterior walls. You will usually find that the areas of your home that are suffering from penetrating damp are usually areas with issues on the external walls such as blown, cracked or weathered render. It’s extremely important to address any unsightly cracks on your walls before they open and let the elements in. Once the damp has made its way through the various skins of your home, it will take a long time to dry out, so prevention is the key.

Approved Wethertex Installer

As a Yorkshire based business we are proud to support other local businesses, so we have chosen to use products from the Wetherby Group of products. Wethertex is one of their key brands and includes a variety of products such as Renders, Primers, and Performance Wall Coatings.

Wethertex GRC Polymer Render vs Traditional Sand and Cement

At JAG we choose to you use Wethertex GRC Polymer Renders rather than traditional Sand and Cement. The main reasons for this are GRC or Glass Reinforced Concrete Renders contain fibres and are designed to cope with all types of substrates while giving greater adhesion, meaning they last longer and are less likely to fail. They are extremely flexible and are virtually crack free.

In addition to this, traditional Sand and Cement renders are usually applied 10-15mm in thickness. They take a lot of time to be applied and generally will crack over time. They are usually painted and over time the paint will peel resulting in you constantly having to re-paint the surfaces to look like new.
