Here at EWI Store, coloured render is our specialty. We want all of our customers to be thrilled with the end result of their render finish by making sure that they are fully informed before making their choice of colour – it’s always better to be safe than sorry, especially with a project like this!
It’s often difficult to picture how a colour might appear when it’s in full scale on a building, let alone when you’ve only seen a tiny picture of the colour on a colour chart. Being able to see exactly what colour the render is in real life is essential – that’s why we’ve recently brought out our Coloured Render Tester Pots!
What are the Coloured Render Tester Pots?
Our Coloured Render Tester Pots contain our Silicone Silicate render, although we do have a range of renders available. They come in a 250ml tub in a default grain size of 1.5mm. We only offer the one grain size and render type because the render tester pots are designed purely as a means of allowing our customers to see the colour of the render.
Why should I Test my Coloured Render Before Purchase?
It’s essential for customers to test their coloured render before they go ahead and purchase it in bulk.
This is because our coloured renders may appear different on the colour chart to how it looks when actually applied on different buildings. A number of factors can cause this, for example your property may be facing a certain direction which gets lower or higher levels of light, thereby affecting the colour that your render appears.
Pale coloured renders can also reflect the colours within their surroundings. If you live in a very green area, your coloured render may reflect this and appear different to the colour chart. Likewise if you live next to the sea, your render may pick up on its bluish tones. This is why we advocate purchasing a coloured render sample pot before making a decision!
It’s also necessary when you are testing your coloured render to make sure that after you’ve painted it on, you leave it for 24 hours to set before making your final decision about whether or not you like the colour. Render is similar to paint in that it may appear lighter or darker when it’s wet and dry. You need to ensure that you like the way that the coloured render looks when it’s dry, because this is going to be the finished result.
What Do I Do When I’ve Decided on my Coloured Render?
After you have made that all-important decision, let your installer know and he/she will purchase the correct amount of render for your property! Or, if you are applying the render yourself, give us a call and we can help you to work out the amount of render you will need, and we can also give our technical advice.
