Coating the surface with the thin coat of appropriate material can create a shield from the surroundings. What is more, it can revive the wall and cause that it will look newer. Among various renders, silicone render is attractive due to the application ease and great features. That material is sold in a ready-to-use form. That denotes that the grain does not have to be mixed with water before application. Manufacturers offer various textures of this material. Thin layer of it guarantees anti-crack properties. This kind of render is hydrophobic so it prevents the damp penetration into the wall and creates the self-cleaning layer. While streaming, the droplets will remove the pollution from the wall. Independently of that, it is quite breathable: it does not stop water vapour, thus enabling the building fabric to vaporise sufficiently during warm weather conditions. The other great advantage of this render is the fact that it is available in various colours. It means there is no need to cover it with a paint. Furthermore, the dye will be durable for years.
Best quality rendering not only creates the good protection, but also guarantees the aesthetic and colourful layer on the walls outside.

The only thing to remember is that silicone render should be applied during the sunny weather, since it requires some time (a few days) to cure. The application – on the site process is easy and the outcome is gratifying.
