Why Rendering Your House Is The Right Choice?
You're thinking of rendering your house but you aren't sure if you are ready for the costs involved? There are many things to consider before embarking on a major renovation project. In this case, the benefits of rendering your home greatly outweigh the expenses involved.
The process definitely adds beauty and value to your home, makes the structure more sturdy and sound and protects it from further wear due to the weather and other natural elements.
This makes the walls of your house weatherproof and solid, and adds protection and value. Most contractors guarantee their rendering service for 20 years, and the colored resin means that you will never have to paint again!
A home that is not rendered risks damage due to weathering and possible water filtration. Cracks and fissures can appear over the years in your house's walls, allowing for the possible disintegration of bricks or cement, and inviting unwanted elements to enter and damage the structural integrity of your home.
This, in turn, is dangerous and extremely expensive to repair. Rather than trying to repair your home after the damage has already been done, rendering is a desirable preventive measure that will prove to save you much time, money and worry in the long-run.
The Cost Of Rendering A House
The average cost for rendering an entire house is anywhere from $30/m2 to $50/m2. To give you an idea of how much this might cost you, if your home has 400 m2 of outside walls, the cost would be somewhere between $12 000 and $20 000.
This is purely an estimate, as the cost can be affected by a number of other factors, such as scaffolding, preparation of the walls beforehand, condition of your home’s existing walls, individual contractor rates and number of workers, number of coats needed on the home, and time required to clean up and dispose of trash after the job is completed.
However, this cost is offset by the fact that the value of your home will increase by much more than the expenses incurred and associated with the work.
Before deciding to begin a rendering project on your home, make sure you are ready to commit to having contractors at your home for at least a week, depending on its size.You must also be able to do your research with local contractors and ask the right questions when getting an estimate for the job.
How long have they been in business? Do they have a good reputation? Do they have any references of work done nearby? What are their particular methods used in the work? Are there any other hidden or supplemental fees? What materials will be used?
How long is the job expected to take? What guarantee do they offer?Quality contractors should also be able to offer you a choice of various finishes and styles that will suit your individual needs and taste.
