Whether you’re renovating your residence or getting ready to sell it, it is common knowledge that rendering a home can add to its property market value. This comes down to the aesthetic appeal of your home and the functional benefits that rendering adds.

Continue reading to find out how rendering can increase the property market value of your home.

New Look

Some homes show their age more than others, and this is especially true when it comes to brick houses from the 70s and 80s. The exterior of your home is the first thing potential buyers see and you want to be sure that it makes a good first impression.

Rendering your home gives it a fresh, elegant look and instantly transforms your house into a modern-looking home. If you want to go one step further, there are also multiple finishes and colours available which can add even more aesthetic appeal to your home.


Over the years, water can seep into the bricks of your home and become absorbed, causing them to become damaged and deteriorate if the issues aren’t addressed.

Rendering the exterior of the home helps to protect the bricks from the elements and ensures the structure of your home is sound.

Improves Insulation

Rendering is water resistant which means it helps to keep out the heat during the Summer and keeps heat in during the Winter. This not only helps you save money on your energy bills but also increases a property’s saleability.


Over time, it’s natural for homes to show signs of wear and tear. This will do your home no favours when it comes to being sold. However, applying a render to the exterior of the home not only hides any defects but can also stop any further damage from taking place.

How Much Value Does Rendering Add?

The total value rendering can add to a home, can be anywhere from $10,000 to $20,000, depending on multiple factors, including the location of your home, the age and size of your home and the quality of your rendering job.

A contractor or real estate agent will better be able to estimate the extra value rendering can add to your property.

Whole Render or Partial Render?

If you can’t afford to render your whole home, a partial rendering can work just as well. A partial rendering still makes a huge difference to the value of a property and costs far less than a full rendering job. This is why most show homes have a partial render as their facade.

What Render Options Are Best for Adding Value?

The most popular render for homes has become acrylic rendering, which is not only durable and flexible but also comes in a wide range of colours and finishes, which can help add that extra something to your home. It also protects against water damage and sun rays.

Cement rendering is also another popular option as it is one of the most affordable rendering options available and also comes in a wide variety of colours.
