    K-Rend Colour help please.

    Plasterers

    We are looking to render our house but have read multiple conflicting reviews regarding K-Rend.
    Originally chose polar white as we want a slightly off white but have been told it’s more cream/yellow?
    Anyone have a better recommendation as to colour?

    "I personally recommend PBR render, if you go onto their website or phone plasterers one-stop shop and ask for their render sample book they'll send you a free book of colour samples."

    "Its more modern crap go solid sand cement and balanced mixers sealers small lime in topcoat on dryer days small plasterser in topcoat small waterproofer just enough colour the water in every coat best do 3x render coats min of 4mm coat no more than 8mm a coat with allows death coat dry even after 1st scratch coat in this time years leave 2x days to dry
    Stick beads on after 2nd scratch paints good old masonry on my flat smooth level render with my Crocodilemuckskin mix masonry last donkey years and is almost like a gloss so can wipe of dirty bits don't get trashed like k rendering.
    Best and wire can also be used is standard sand cement with is waterproof and basically most plasterers up these parts card sand cement render but can k rend"

    "Hi, we have just done a big house and the client was having the same problem, I would recommend going with Parex instead of k-rend as its one of the original Monocouche renders and hasn’t really evolved much, Parex is much more flexible and keeps it colour. We used brilliant white and it’s not as bright as it sounds. Make sure its machine applied if its Monocouche your using!!! Hope this helps."
