Rendering your Northumberland home is a great idea, protecting your home and insulating your property. This work saves money and can add value to your home.
However, if you are concerned about the finished colour and want to improve the appearance of your Northumberland home, you might be put off by the scale of a paint job.
You don’t need to worry about this. Coloured render solutions allow you to enjoy the benefits of rendering with any colour you want. This saves time and money while ensuring you have the finish you dream of.

Coloured render, which is sometimes known as through-coloured render, is a modified version of exterior coating render.
As the name suggests, the difference is a colour pigment is applied to the render in the manufacturing process. So, rather than having a top coat of colour applied to render, the actual render has a tint all the way through it.
You can choose from different colours, including all popular colours, and it's a solution of the highest quality.
If you are looking for a hard wearing, low maintenance and high performance render system, capable of smooth or textured finishes, and as adaptable to brick, cement, acrylic and silicone as you'd hope for, coloured render is a fine example of taking a good product and improving it.
All the typical benefits of rendering are present in this coloured solution with this adapted version having several benefits on top of the standard product, including:
So, with colourful application adding these benefits to the durability, insulation qualities, weather-resistance (especially mineral render solutions) and protection elements associated with typical render, it is easy to see why many people opt for this solution.
This is a crack resistant, weather resistant solution with dirt resistance available in popular colours.
WeDoRender is pleased to provide a wide range of coloured render solutions, and if you would like to discuss your options, we are more than happy to do so.
Not every homeowner wants a colourful render finish. Some property owners prefer simplicity and wouldn’t thank you for a brightly coloured exterior wall.
Whatever style is right for your home, we’ll make sure you enjoy looking at your wall and know it protects your home and loved ones.
There are many components associated with coloured render. To achieve the best results with this style of render, you need to apply a number of elements to the property, not just the product itself. Take note of the elements associated with renders:
A primer, which has a cost of around £0.76 per square metre
A base coat, and although there are many types and strengths to choose from, you should budget for around £4.50 per square metre
A mesh layer, which is embedded to the base coat and offers more flexibility, is around £0.92 per square metre.
Primer, applied between the render and base coat, costing around £0.93 per square metre
Render, available in different styles, textures and thousands of colours, and a good starting point is budgeting for £6.29 per square metre.
Adding these costs together comes to £13.4 per square metre, but this is just the cost of materials. You also have labour costs, and other materials to consider, like board systems.
You also need to consider rising costs, with all companies increasing the price of products across the board. To ensure you budget the project appropriately, you should call WeDoRender to assess your property.
We are happy to talk you through the process and evaluate the cost of the job you want to undertake at your home.
Given an additional step in the manufacturing process, it is not unreasonable to assume renders with a colour are more expensive than traditional rendering without this step.
Then again, not all products are the same, so there might be a more affordable option from one company that provides a better solution or value for your home.
There are some low cost solutions, even with colours, and of course, you can opt for a single layer, or even a through coloured render system with traditional sand as opposed to a silicone render with silicone technology.
There will always be ways to lower costs, even with through coloured rendering, but whether this is the best solution for you in the long term, depends on many factors.
If you would like to discuss your options or need guidance on which a colourful render delivers the results you want to see on the walls of your house, we are more than happy to help.
The quality and durability of shaded render depends on the quality and standard of the render itself. There is a broad range of rendering materials and solutions, and some are more dependable than others.
It is natural you want a long lasting finish on the walls of your house, and the different types of render systems deliver different results. For colours that last, the type of rendering system matters.
Also, the type and condition of your building impacts the longevity of the render, as does the way render is applied directly, or not, to a house.
As you can see, the outcome will vary depending on so many factors, and if you want to discuss the full range of render systems for your building, please contact WeDoRender.
It is possible to colour through these renders, and they have a long lifespan, which is astounding considering they don’t require much maintenance.
A colourful acrylic or silicone render can provide you with 20 to 25 years of excellent service without needing much work to improve its appearance.
When it comes to creating a look you love while protecting your home for many years, synthetic based ones provide an excellent option that transforms properties.
It is possible to apply renders with a colour on top of existing rendering, but it depends on the condition of the home and existing renders.
This isn’t a task that is possible at all homes, and if you would like WeDoRender to assess your home and give an opinion on whether this is possible, we are more than happy to do so.
In cases when the existing rendering is in great condition, colourful renders can be applied with a flexible and premium adhesive as a base coat, as opposed to the EPS base coat.
Get in touch if you need guidance on coloured rendered solutions, it's cost and suitability, or you want to book professionals to undertake this job.
WeDoRender, as the name suggests, are render specialists, and our tinted rendering services will bring your home to life with colours and dependability.
The total cost depends on the system you choose, but it will be around twice as much as coloured render due to the additional labour and materials necessary. However, render and EWI should not be compared side by side because they provide completely distinct answers.
Grey is one of the best render colours in this regard, with Pantone's colour of the year for 2021 being Ultimate Gray. Grey has grown extremely fashionable in recent years, blending perfectly with the traditional neutral design.
You can, indeed, paint over the render. You can be an artist of your rendered wall if you have the correct tools and paint.
Most colours fade or lose strength to variable degrees over time, depending on how much exposure to harsh atmospheric conditions occurs during the life of the coating system.
