Coating the surface with the thin layer of proper material can create a protection from the surroundings. Moreover, it will refresh the wall and make it appear newer. Amidst different renders, silicone render is well-liked because of the application ease and excellent features. That material is available in a ready-to-use form. It denotes that the grain does not have to be mixed with water before application. Producers offer various textures of this material. Thin layer of it guarantees anti-crack properties. This type of render is water-repellent so it protects the wall from the damp penetration and forms the self-cleaning surface. During streaming, the water will eliminate the pollution from the surface. Independently of that, it is quite breathable: it does not stop water vapour, thus enabling the building fabric to dry off enough during warm weather conditions. Another huge plus of this render is the fact that it is sold in wide range of colours. That means it does not have to be covered with a paint. What is more, the dye will be durable for years.
Best quality outer wall covering not only creates the good protection, but also guarantees the aesthetic and colourful cover of the outer walls.

The only aspect to remember is the fact that silicone render ought to be put during the sunny weather, since it needs some time (a few days) to solidify. The application process is straightforward and the outcome is satisfactory.
