This is the application of a sand & cement mix to exposed brickwork which offers a good impermeable surface.

Rendering a wall consists of the application of two layers, firstly the scratch coat which offers the second layer a flat & even surface and also a good key. The second coat is rubbed down to complete a quality finished surface.

K-Rend scratched or scraped terminology refers to the process of how the product is finished, after the base coat has been applied a coloured top coat is applied to a level surface, then a scraping tool is used to scrape/cratch back the top 2mm of the coating to create a uniform texture.
