    k rend issues - use it or not?


    I'm looking to have my house rendered. I live 1/2 a mile from the sea with a prevailing wind to my gable end. I like the modern look of k-rend or parex or webber but I am really concerned about the discolouration and staining of this stuff that you see EVERYWHERE you go. I am told that a particular paint is needed and should be applied soon after render is applied? What is this paint? By who? Or is there any other render or system that could be recommended? Thanks very much

    "Hi there k rend is silicone based so any discolour you may get can easily be washed off.
    I would not recommend putting any type of paint over a k rend finish"
