Re: K Rend (Question for Chancer or others)

K Rend is extensively used coloured render and can be used on many substrates.
I believe the system originates on the continent but no matter.
Does it work ok? yes
Is it suitable for use in France yes

Re: K Rend (Question for Chancer or others)

I bought myself a bag of' K Rend 'white' in the UK this summer for 10 pounds from a fab Brico shop near Portsemouth but did not get a chance to use it this summer.

It will be interesting to see if it works on BC as it will quite useful. May try at Tousaint.

K Rend is used extensively now in the UK - we are just about to K Rend a student accommodation building on the Portsmouth Hard. It's a durable through colour finish for external walls

Re: K Rend (Question for Chancer or others)

K-rend is applied over a base coat and render mesh; it's available in many colours; none of them white.

Pluses: no painting required.
Negatives: it cannot be patched.
Application is a skilled affair for good results.
Plastic beads are required at external corners
It's rather expensive.

Caveat: I work extensively with K-rend in the UK, and I have no knowledge of other render systems available in France... But I wouldn't have K-rend on my own house if it was free!

Re: K Rend (Question for Chancer or others)

My k-Rend is white. It says so on the bag. lol

I bought one bag for a 'small' project (not house related) but I still have not got around to using it.
