Rendered-look homes have been trending in the property market over the last decade – and understandably so, as this sleek finish offers limitless design options to suit every homeowner’s individual style. The same finish can be achieved over a lightweight product as a more affordable option to traditional rendered brick. Can you tell the difference?

Incorporating wall routing, mouldings, column and pier features, window fins and hoods produces a distinctive and gracious facade. More often than not, this level of customisation can incur a hefty price tag. However, by using engineered, lightweight, innovative building products a tailored rendered look can be achieved to suit any budget.
