Thin coat systems

Thin coat systems are flexible, lightweight and breathable, offering a modern alternative to traditional render with added protection against cracking.

Thin coat render systems are often paired with external wall insulation, allowing you to boost your eco-friendly credentials, improve energy efficiency and upgrade the appearance of your property all at once.

Thin coat systems might be right for you if:

  • You want to install external wall insulation and need an attractive top coat
  • You’re looking for a lightweight, flexible system that won’t crack
  • You want a system that can be applied over different substrates, for example, when rendering a house and a new extension

What are thin coat wall systems?

Thin coat systems are another great system we can install (similar to monocouche render) , finished with a thin layer of acrylic or silicon render in the colour of your choice. The system has a textured finish which is applied separately. Thin coat wall systems are most commonly used with external wall insulation because they are lighter.

A 6-7mm meshed base coat is applied first, then left to cure. Once primed, the top coat is applied to add colour and protection, making this a low-maintenance wall covering.

We can advise you on the right system for your needs, depending on what you want to achieve. Every project we complete uses a specification from the manufacturer. This is your assurance of expert advice, backed by the manufacturers themselves.
