Roughcast Render VS Wall Refurbishment

Many properties have roughcast render on their exterior walls – while this was previously a popular finish, there are now alternatives that make use of upgraded technology and create a premium, modern finish. One such alternative is wall refurbishment, which can offer excellent value for money and improve your property dramatically.


Roughcast render is an exterior wall covering that comprises lime, sand, gravel/stone chippings, and sometimes cement. It is often applied to walls by hand, and it might be confused with pebbledash – both have a rough textured finish.

On the other hand, wall refurbishment is a specialist process that works to repair existing external walls and masonry, before a breathable coating is applied. This breathes new life into a property, upgrading its appearance as well as protecting it.
