Monocouche external rendered finish is a pre mixed external decorative colour rendering system. The main difference between traditional sand and cement renders is that the latter is coloured all the way through. This minimises the need for any painting. It also protects the existing fabric of your home by sealing it in a way that becomes weatherproof. This makes it virtually maintenance free.
