- Cement render, pointing works
Cement rendering is the process of applying mortar to the exterior walls of a property. The advantage to rendering your property is that it allows you to select from many different styles and finishes that cannot be achieved otherwise. This can be done without any structural work being done to the property which makes it a very cost-effective way of beautifying your home.
Many people now see rendering as not just a way of improving the look and sturdiness of their home but also as a way to increase its value. Having a render applied to a property can add thousands to its value which makes it a very worthwhile investment.
Cement rendering can be applied to interior and exterior walls made of cement, brick or stone. It is a mix of lime, sand and cement and is extremely versatile, being able to be applied rough or smooth depending on the mix. There are many different looks that can be achieved using a cement render which makes it ideal for almost any project. After the render has been applied it can then be textured or painted to the property owner’s tastes. Cement rendering has been used for centuries and is an excellent way to improve the appearance and sturdiness of a property as well as being a great weather proofing measure for exterior walls.
Lintels are used within properties to carry the load of brickwork from above a door, window or other opening in an external or internal wall.
If any of these lintels are faulty, have corroded, are made from soldier courses (bricks curved laid vertically which can sag through slight movement) or were not installed as part of the original build, it is likely that cracking and instability in the surrounding walls will occur.
In severe cases walls become dangerous because of faulty or missing lintels. Lintel problems are often uncovered when replacing windows; brickwork may collapse above an opening due to a lack of lintel support.
