    "It’s not as good as sand and cement. It does not last as long so why pay more."

    "Generally polymer render, for example a monocouche are colour coded saving the need and cost of decorating.
    Not all but most polymer renders are one coat. Making application quicker.
    Both polymer and sand / cement render are as good as each other if used correctly.
    A polymer render depending on brand would probably be a little more expensive but there wouldn’t be a great difference once labour is added.
    Know what type of surface you want rendered and then your decision will be easier.."

    "Yes 10 times better, as its a resin base coat and silicon topcoat with a low maintenance colour of your choice
    It's cost more because it takes longer but worth the extra cost for peace of mind"
