What is a monocouche render?

Attractive property finished in weberpral M monocouche

Whether you’re a homeowner looking for the best option for your extension, an applicator needing to recommend a durable facade to a client, or a specifier wanting the perfect finish for your next project, you may find yourself asking, what exactly is monocouche?

At Weber we like to think of ourselves as seasoned pros when it comes to monocouche render. So why do we love it so much?

Well that’s easy – it’s a fantastic product. It’s long-lasting, low-maintenance, and through-coloured so there’s no need for a top coat or painting. We’ve taken traditional sand and cement render and dialled it up a few notches. With increased weather resistance, algae resistance and the ability to apply with a render pump, we believe it is the ideal finish for your home or project.

But what does the word ‘monocouche’ mean? 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. 

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

A monocouche render can either refresh your current facade or offer a vibrant look to a new build, and with various finish options, including scraped and spray/roughcast, and features such as quoin and ashlar, you can get creative with the final look.

Don't take our word for it...
