What is monocouche render?

Attractive property finished in weberpral M monocouche

At Weber, we like to think of ourselves as seasoned professionals when it comes to monocouche render. But what is monocouche, and why do we love it so much?

Where does the name ‘monocouche’ come from?

In French – where monocouche originates – it literally translates into English as ‘one coat’. Our monocouche renders are applied in two passes, but these bond together to form one strong monolithic coat.  It’s just the more modern advanced version of a traditional render. We’ve improved it over the last few years to make it the best it can be.

So, why choose monocouche?

On a formulation level, the type of cement used in monocouche renders allows for pigmentation to be added which is what gives it a through-coloured appearance and means there’s no need to paint it.  

Monocouche has many benefits for the homeowner, applicator and specifier:

    Different finishes
    Can be scrape finished for a modern appearance or sprayed roughcast for a traditional look

It’s easy to see why monocouche render has been so popular over the years – it’s a fantastic product. Unlike a traditional sand and cement render, monocouche is single-coat and through-coloured which means it doesn’t need to be painted. Not only this, but we’ve added increased weather and algae resistance to keep it looking fresh for years to come.

Don’t just take our word for it

A monocouche render will stylishly finish your new home or refresh your façade and keep it protected from the elements. And with the different options for finishing, including scraped, spray/roughcast, quoin and ashlar features, you can get creative with the final look.
