What is Scraped Render?

Scraped render or “scratched render” it is sometimes called is a specialised exterior wall finishing technique that has gained popularity for its clean, contemporary, and minimalist appearance.  

It involves applying a thick through coloured render to the exterior surface of a building. Once it is slightly cured but not set a special tool is used to scrape it back. This scraping technique achieves a smooth, sleek, and finely pitted like finish.

Renders that are suitable for this type of finish are monocouche or a thick silicone render such as K-Rend FT. The distinctive feature of scraped render lies in its clean lines and a slightly undulated texture that adds depth and character to exterior walls.

Unlike other rendering styles, scraped render minimises visible imperfections and creates a pristine, uncluttered look that complements a variety of architectural designs, from modern and minimalist to classic and timeless.

It is known not only for its aesthetics but also for its durability and weather resistance. It can withstand the elements while maintaining its polished appearance, making it an excellent choice for both residential and commercial properties.

Whether you’re renovating an existing building or designing a new one, scraped render can elevate your exterior’s visual appeal, providing a sleek and enduring finish that enhances the overall aesthetics of your property.
