    Benefits of Exterior Wall Coatings

    Exterior wall coatings such as spray wall coatings, renders and silicone renders can help improve and update the appearance of your property. They also come with a number of other benefits built in, which can help you to look after your property and live a more comfortable life. The benefits of exterior wall coatings generally fall into two categories: aesthetic and practical.

    These are some of the key practical benefits of using exterior wall coatings on your property:

    - Low-maintenance finish. External coatings create a barrier between walls and the outside world, providing a weatherproof layer. There won’t be any labour-intensive maintenance to carry out.
    - Damp proofing. Renders or long life wall coatings form a water repellent layer, preventing rising damp entering the building through the external walls.
    - Durable and long lasting. Depending on the manufacturer, your wall coating could be guaranteed for up to 10 years.
    - Breathable. This prevents damp forming, which also makes the coating resistant to mould and algae.
    - Fast drying. Your coating can be applied quickly, and you won’t have to wait around for it to dry. We can advise you on accurate timings when you have decided on your product.


    These are some of the key aesthetic benefits of exterior wall coatings:

    - A fresh, modern look. Your coating will form a smooth layer over brickwork or existing coatings, creating a contemporary appearance.
    - A wide choice of colours. Through-coloured coatings like silicone render already include colour, so there’s no need for painting. You can see the colour charts for Andura wall coatings and silicone renders on our website.
    - No cracks. Exterior wall coatings can cover existing unsightly cracks, and they’re flexible, preventing new ones from forming.


    Due to their many benefits, exterior wall coatings represent excellent value for money. They can even add value to your home, making them an investment, not an expense. There are various types of wall coating available, so they are highly versatile and suitable for all types of property.
