BRE A+ rated monocouche render by Saint-Gobain Weber has been specified for a private new build property in beautiful Dumfries, Scotland.
Of traditional style, the property features attractive stone detailing to the ground level plinth, stone quoins and window surrounds, and elegant timber sash windows throughout. The exterior façade is rendered with weber.pral M in Cream and provides a durable, decorative and weather resistant finish well suited to this exposed location and in keeping with the local vernacular.
Applicator J J Runcie Plasterers Limited applied the BBA (British Board of Agrément) approved weber.pral M monocouche render. This high specification product offers the multiple benefits of through-coloured One-coat Technology which is recognised for its ease and speed of application. By reducing the drying time associated with a traditional multi-coat system by as much as 50%, significant on-site cost savings can be made which contributes to project efficiencies and earlier completion.
“The speed of application and rapid drying time is a very important factor in our choice of render,” says James Runcie, J J Runcie Plasterers Limited. “The weather here is highly unpredictable and can create serious delays any time of the year, so working with a product that requires half the amount of time to dry in comparison with a traditional render is a very real bonus for us. And what’s more it looks great, is easy to apply and suitable for spray application which is even faster.”
Saint-Gobain Weber is the first manufacturer of monocouche render to be awarded an A+ rating as defined in the BRE Global 2008 Green Guide to Specification. This audited material helps specifiers to make selections that will collectively reduce the environmental impact of their buildings while achieving more materials credits.
Offering ease and speed of application weber.pral M requires only the addition of clean water on site and is formulated for efficient spray application over large areas by render pump. It can be used on suitably prepared brick and block work and offers a variety of ways to achieve distinct, architectural features and finishes. weber.pral M is manufactured from carefully selected raw materials at facilities in Bedfordshire, Shropshire and Ireland where quality and consistency is achieved.
