Crack repairs and restorations require experience to ensure repairs match texturally to the surrounding area.
When clients request that we look at problems with areas of render, we will consider the overall ‘health’ of the surface. Causes of cracks may be due to poor workmanship, thermal movement, inadequate bond strength, corroding walls, or subsidence, or thermal movement.
Melbourne Rendering Group offer an accurate quotation on remedying different types of damage including small cracks, scrapes, gouges, holes and missing patches to avoid redoing work on an the entire elevation where possible.
We are able to colour match repaired area to match original shades as closely as possible. Unusual colours may have to be ordered in. In some cases, it may be more effective to repaint the entire wall after crack repairs.
