3 Easy Steps to Choosing Coloured Render

09.10.2018

At EWI Pro, coloured render is our specialty. Whether it’s Silicone, Silicone Silicate or Acrylic render, we have a solution for every property.

When choosing an EWI Pro coloured render, follow these three easy steps to ensure a fantastic finish:

1. Choosing the Type of Coloured Render

It isn’t just the colour that varies when it comes to EWI Pro coloured renders. Our renders offer flexibility and crack resistance and can be tinted to create any shade, but there are also different benefits and advantages associated with each render.

For example, EWI Pro’s Silicone Render is one of our top of the range renders, offering breathability, vapour permeability and resistance to organic growth. This is the render of choice for properties old or new and is widely known throughout the industry for its advanced levels of flexibility.

Silicone Silicate Render is a hybrid silicone render and is the choice of most installers. It offers great value with an array of benefits, including: breathability, vapour permeability and UV resistance. In terms of comparing Silicone Silicate Render with Silicone Render, the key difference is in their self-cleaning capabilities – Silicone Render offers a higher level of performance in this regard.

Acrylic Render is our best value render, offering impact and UV resistance. The key difference between the Acrylic render and its silicone counterparts is the render’s ability to allow water vapour pass through (its breathability) is less advanced. Nevertheless, Acrylic Render offers users a trusted system, and is ideal for those looking for a simple yet aesthetically appealing result.

Monocouche Scratch Render is entirely different to all of the above. Firstly because it is a through-coloured, dry-mix render (therefore it comes in a powder form and requires mixing with water), secondly because it is a thick coat render. Monocouche offers a sandstone, pitted texture and is far more preferable when compared with a painted sand and cement render, because of the fact that it is through-coloured.

2. Choosing Colour with an EWI Pro Coloured Render Colour Chart

EWI Pro colour charts offer the chance to view real life, vibrant swatches of our colour range. The colour chart displays the different grain sizes and textures that can be achieved, along with a full and comprehensive layout of the EWI Pro colour catalogue.

3. Testing EWI Pro Coloured Renders

Coloured render can look completely different in certain surroundings. Pale coloured renders can appear to reflect the colours in their surroundings; a white rendered property situated next to the ocean may reflect a hint of blue. At EWI Pro, we want our end-users to be satisfied with the finished result of their render installation; we therefore always encourage testing the render before making a final decision.
