The Benefits Of Exterior Wall Refurbishment Over New Roughcasting

It’s no secret that the Scottish weather can be tough on houses. Wind, rain and freezing temperatures can take their toll on even the best built homes, leaving exterior surfaces looking dull, discoloured and generally the worse for wear.

If the walls of your home are looking a little weather-beaten, and you want to give them a fresh lease of life, refurbishment is a great option. Quick, effective and much more affordable than new roughcast render, refurbishment can have your home looking as good as new in no time. Take a look at these key benefits of refurbishment to help you decide which method is right for you.

Value For Money

Refurbished or renewed, your home will look the same once the work is done. So, why pay out for new roughcast render when wall refurbishment is so much more affordable? As well as offering great value for money when compared to roughcast render, refurbishment will help to insulate your home. This crucial exterior layer will help to keep the heat in, saving you money on your energy bills and making your home more efficient.


Not only is wall refurbishment affordable, it’s also durable. Good quality wall refurbishment will give you an incredibly long lasting result. Unlike other applications that can chip and become damaged quickly, a refurbished roughcast exterior will keep its appearance, helping your home look great for years to come.

If your home is exposed to the elements, having exterior walls that are tough and durable can be a real bonus. Our high quality wall refurbishments are guaranteed for up to 15 years.

Time Efficient

One of the biggest benefits of refurbishment over renewal is that it’s fast. Renewing the roughcast render on an entire home is a big job and could see your property turned into a building site for a considerable amount of time. Refurbishing however is very time efficient, allowing you to transform the look of your property quickly and easily with relatively minimal disruption to your household.

No Need For Scaffolding

Unlike renewal, wall refurbishment doesn’t require scaffolding. This is because expert tradesmen can complete the process with an airless spray. A minimum of two coats are applied to ensure a good finish and all windows, doors and exterior floors are covered in a protective plastic before work begins.

Taking scaffolding out of the equation will save you a significant amount of time and money, and prevent your home being shrouded in unsightly poles and platforms while work is underway.
