Covering the wall with the small coat of proper material can build a protection from the surroundings. Furthermore, it can refresh the surface and make it look newer. Amidst various renders, silicone render is popular due to the application facility and wonderful features. That material is sold in a ready-made form. It means that the powder does not have to be mixed with water prior to application. Producers offer different textures of this material. Thin layer of it maintains anti-crack character. This type of render is hydrophobic so it prevents the damp penetration into the wall and creates the self-cleaning surface. While streaming, the droplets will remove the dirt from the wall. Despite that, it is quite breathable: it does not stop water vapour, thus enabling the walls’ material to vaporise sufficiently during warm ambient conditions. Another big plus of this material is that it is available in wide range of colours. It means it does not have to be covered with a paint. What is more, the dye will be long-lasting.
Best quality rendering not only creates the good protection, but also guarantees the beautiful and colourful cover of the walls outside.

The only aspect to remember is the fact that silicone render ought to be applied during the good weather, since it requires some time (several days) to solidify. The application is straightforward and the outcome is satisfactory.
