Consultancy in render and plaster application

SAS Europe Ltd

The NHBC sought our expert advice and technical knowledge for Blue Mills in Fowey. These apartments had cracks appearing at internal corners and the render bulging and debonding at floor levels. It became clear that frame movement was an afterthought, along with inadequate size, layout and fixing of the timber battens. It was agreed with the NHBC to replace the failed system with ProWall; our industry leading rendered rainscreen cladding system. An approved applicator rectified issues with the battening and cavity, and re-finished the building to a high standard with a quality silicone finish.

Rendered rainscreen remedial for timber frame

SAS Europe Ltd

This timber frame house with badly cracked render was saved from damp and cold with ProWall seamless rendered rainscreen. The lightweight ProWall system replaced the failed render, keeping the traditional rendered look and giving a watertight, breathable facade. The existing render varied from 30mm to 60mm, and was embedded with expanded metal lathing (EML). The repetitve expansion and contraction of the EML had cracked the render around it. After removing the old render ProWall rainscreen was installed. This included new battening, an advanced render carrier board, and ventilation beads under the soffits and at the base.

Magply Render Board : Prime Folio are the designers of an apartment development on an elevated site specify a highly weather resistant render finish to the elevations, applied across Magply boards.


Graham Wakeman a Director of Wakes Construction Ltd., commented: “Old Street in Chatham is a prominent building, potentially exposed to severe weather where getting the exterior finishes right is critical. As the architects, Prime Folio identified the Baumit render system as the best for the situation, then through conversation with Baumit and the installer, it was a matter of matching it with a compatible substrate board: with Magply being chosen.” Despite offering good adhesion for the decorative render system, Magply boards are very moisture stable thanks to their modified MgO formulation that also represents an environmentally friendly alternative.

Self clean paint and mineral thin coat render restore 19th century hotel

SAS Europe Ltd

The Great Western Hotel, a landmark dating from the 19th century has been re-finished in ProRend’s breathable Mineraltex render and Self-Clean Masonry Paint. Sitting in a high-traffic area, the light colour chosen might have been a problem - but by using ProRend Mineraltex, a breathable and lightweight thin coat render, finished with Self-Clean Masonry Paint the hotel will maintain its impressive exterior. The self-clean finish washes clean in the rain, as water drops gather up grit and pollution deposits and beads them off the surface. ProRend paints are available in more than 65,000 colours.

5 storey record store on the South Coast has been finished using a proprietary render system, applied across 12mm Magply, secured to the fabric of the building.


Given the exposed location of the building the specification for the exterior cladding had to be both very durable and suitable for application in all but the most challenging of weather conditions. The solution decided on by the project team features a proprietary two-coat reinforced render system – K-Rend – spray applied to the Magply panels. “The original plans was to use a sand/cement render. However, after discussions regarding logistics and the scale of the elevations, it was decided to switch to a high performance render system and Fullers proposed the K-Rend on a substrate of Magply boards.”
