Coating the surface with the small layer of proper material can create a shield from the surroundings. Moreover, it can revive the wall and cause that it will look newer. Amidst different renders, silicone render is well-liked because of the application facility and excellent features. This material is sold in a ready-made form. That signifies that there is no need to mix the powder with water prior to application. Manufacturers offer various textures of this render. Thin layer of this render guarantees anti-crack character. This type of render is water-repellent so it prevents the damp penetration into the wall and forms the self-cleaning surface. While streaming, the water will remove the pollution from the surface. Despite that, it is quite breathable: it does not stop moisture, thus enabling the building fabric to dry off enough during warm ambient conditions. The next big advantage of this material is the fact that it is available in wide range of colours. That means there is no need to cover it 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 layer on the outer walls.

The only thing to remember is the fact that silicone render ought to be put during the sunny weather, because it needs some time (a few days) to solidify. The application is easy and the effect is satisfactory.
