It also allows moisture to pass through and out of the wall. Silicon is premixed into the cement, and the rendering is much faster. Substrates include insulation boards, lightweight thermalite blocks, or breeze blocks. Expansion joints can be used to impart extra sturdiness to the render so it doesn’t crack. Silicone rendering is available in several shades and finishes.
