This is dependent on the type of paint used as the new render system will be relying on its bond to the substrate. In some circumstances External Wall Insulation can be a more cost-effective option than extensive preparation of previously rendered/painted substrates as there is currently no VAT. This can make it more economical than taking off existing paint and adding on 20% VAT.
WP rendering only render over paint as a last resort even though we would use all measures to make sure it works. Customers should always check with the render manufacturer they will see that all manufacturers do not like to apply render directly onto painted surfaces. It’s always a last resort and usually there are always better solutions to overcome this.
Yes, we ask for a small deposit to secure your booking and hold your slot.
WP will never expose the customer to any financial deficit. The small deposit is just to hold the slot, and a 30% invoice will be raised when all materials and scaffolding are in place and not before.
Fixtures and fittings will need to be removed and plumbing pipes and electrical cables extended if necessary to accommodate the new render/external wall insulation. We can carry out this work should you wish and will be added to your quote.
We can also provide scaffolding, welfare for our workers and protection for your property. This will be discussed with you at our initial visit and outlined in your quote.
Although speedy and a very visually rewarding home improvement, rendering is a messy process so protection is applied to the ground, window and door frames and adjacent wall finishes.
We will carry out a daily clean up to limit the impact on your daily life during the works. Following the completion of rendering works, our team will carry out a comprehensive removal of protection and final clear-up.
We offer an array of colours to chose from. We have a colour chart in which you can select a few colours and we will arrange samples of these colours to be delivered to you from the supplier to ensure you are happy with your choice. The finish will depend on the product chosen and will be discussed with you when you receive the quote
Since we only use breathable renders that are flexible and crack resistant, there is no issue dealing with a timber frame structure.
K- Render is often misused by companies with little or no experience in rendering or by companies looking to offer a cheap ’solution’. For example, properties built pre-1920 are often built using lime mortar instead of the modern cement we use today and K-Render should never be used in this situation. If K-Render is used here it can crack and cause damp issues on the inside of the house as it prevents the house from breathing. Using K-render over painted surfaces is also not a suitable solution as it is too heavy, thus causing the paint below, and subsequently the K-Render, to fail.
K-Render and Monocouche are designed for use on new build 7 Newton blocks. They are both average in performance in these situations and are usually lower in price.
Our recommendation would be to upgrade your render to a silicon based product as this much more flexible and therefore 99.9% crack free and can be used on a wide range of properties. This is because the base coats come with fibres within them, and in conjunction with an embedded nylon mesh and a silicone resin, pre coloured, top coat it allows more movement. We can also tailor the system to be fully breathable should the building require this.
WP will only use the correct materials for the correct application and we can back this up with the manufacturers technical data, which we will be happy to share with you.
We issue comprehensive warranty’s up to 25 years covering the workmanship and the materials. We guarantee the new rendering will not peel, crack or come away from the underlying wall. We are Trustmark approved and we can access an insurance backed warranty from Qualitymark which will cover work, even if anything happens to WP Rendering.
Yes, we are part of Trustmark which is the only government endorsed body for work carried out around the home. To be part of this, we have to follow strict rules and prove regularly that we are following the correct procedures and are competent at the work we carry out. We are also part of the federation of master builders and have our own city and guilds qualified staff carrying out work.
Currently, the government have abolished VAT on insulated wall render so it’s a great time to take advantage of this saving. Other types of render will incur VAT at the prevailing rate.
Having had my property fitted with external insulation, rendered, and a section to the front clad in Cedral fibre cement cladding I now had an impressive looking house. WP Rendering did an excellent job in all respects leaving the site in a clean and tidy manner. I would like to thank Steve, Kevin and all the guys that worked on my property for their skill and service provided. I would recommend WP Rendering if you are considering a similar project.
Highly recommend WP rendering who have done an excellent job rendering our renovated house. Every member of the team is polite and professional working hard to keep the area clean and tidy and protecting new windows. Communication was excellent throughout. A brilliant job which has created a contemporary look to our tired 1970s house. Thanks guys.
WP recently re-rendered the garage and kitchen at our 2* listed house. Excellent work, stripping off the previous incorrect concrete render, repointing and repairing, then rendering using a cork/ lime mix. Price, timing as quoted, great workmanship, prep and clean up.
Not normally one for doing reviews but Steve managed to squeeze my job in so I could make use of the green homes scheme before it closed and the job they did is spot on. From start to finish, very pleased from the office to the guys carrying out the work.
WP Rendering have just completed a beautiful job on the rear of our new farm house. The work has been done to a very high standard by a qualified hard working team, leaving the site clean and tidy, I can not recommend them highly enough. A very satisfactory job.
Thanks for everything guys! we are so pleased. communication was great, and the finished piece was even better than we expected! would highly recommend this this company! Thanks Steve.
This is the second time my family have used this company now and they’ve never let us down! Excellent service! Great communication! I couldn’t recommend them enough.
Very pleased with the insulated render, our home is now warmer and looks great from the outside.
Steve’s team of three led by Simon have a work ethic second to none, they are very hard-working, polite and cleared up every day. The project was completed quickly, only being constrained by the short daylight hours and occasional rain in January. By its nature the work is messy at times but the house and surrounding ground were well covered and left clean and tidy when the work was finished.
Excellent job done of rendering top half of house with thermal no maintenance render. The team that carried out the work cannot be faulted, very hard working, answered any queries and cleared paths etc when they went home every day. As with any building work, expect a little mess but it was kept to a minimum. The only downside is that having the work done in the wetter months causes delays – absolutely no fault of WP Rendering.
Thanks so much for doing an amazing job of the render of our house, it’s made a huge difference we couldn’t be happier. Great team of guys working on it & they did a great job protecting our patio & left the place immaculate. Would highly recommend.
The whole job ran smoothly from start to finish possibly due to the influence of the boss Steve. I would and have recommended WP to anyone I know looking for a rendering job, the 4 guys were polite, professional and I couldn’t fault their work ethic. The finished product I can’t fault and when the team left site they left everything clean and tidy. The team Carlos,Pedro,Nelson and Antonio couldn’t do enough to help and they battled on through all weathers.
Excellent, fast friendly service. Great job with a professional tidy team! Went above and beyond including doing small jobs that weren’t anything to do with them! Really could not get a better company! Would recommend to anyone!
