Exterior Plastering, Rendering or Stucco
Exterior walls will usually need to be finished with plaster unless the walls are constructed of brick or timber. New buildings constructed with breeze blocks will usually be finished with sand and cement render whilst old buildings undergoing repair and restoration will be better suited to the use of traditional materials such as Lime Renders. If the building is listed then it is likely that the work will have to be carried out under the guidance of the local conservation and planning department using traditional materials.
There are various external decorative finishes including Ashlar, Rustication and Roughcast.
