What do render repair services include?

Never skip a render crack repair just to save costs. Even the smallest crack on your house wall can expand over time, leaving you with a more expensive and time-consuming repair. Plus, it might put your house at risk as well.

 

We have a range of handymen and tradesmen who can help you repair your cracked rendered wall or re-render the whole thing. You won't have to try doing this arduous job yourself or call your neighbour for help. Book our external render repair service and have it all settled in quicker turnaround time. From the pre-render preparation, actual work to after application clean-up, you can entrust everything to them and worry about nothing else. Here's what you can expect:

 

Surface cleaning

Before proceeding with the actual repair, it is integral to clean and prepare the surface first, especially if the area has been left unattended for a while. Your Tasker removes the dirt, dust, grease, mould, algae or any lingering substances that may interfere with the adhesion or render repair. If intensive cleaning and treatments are required, this process is ideally done at least a day before the scheduled render repair.


Expanding cracks

Using a cutter tool, oscillating tool, or chisel, your Tasker rakes out the damaged, cracked rendered wall to expand its width. The exact size and depth will depend on the render needed. The purpose of this step is to replace all vulnerable spots and open up enough space to enable efficient filling within the cracks.  


Filling render crack

There are different kinds of joint sealants in the market: acrylic, butyl, and silicone, among others. When in doubt, our Tasker can help you pick the most suitable render based on your substrate and priorities. Once the surface preparation is done, the chosen render patching compound is then applied and filled within the expanded crack, repeatedly until the desired thickness is achieved. Your repairer may use a hawk and a trowel tool to level the surface with the existing render.


Drying and repainting

Your Tasker can match the finishing to the rendering style of the existing wall and ensure that no unsightly render patches are left behind. After the recommended drying and curing time, you can also ask them to repaint the area with a similar colour and texture as the surrounding render. You can also book our exterior painter for more professional paintwork, especially if you want to give your external wall a fresh new colour and look.
