PROS
• Will modernise your home if done in conjunction with the right colours and accents (such as feature cladding, interesting materials, contrasting neutral colours, landscaping etc)
• Will make your home look fresh and feel more welcoming
• Will cover up any imperfections, mismatches, or blemishes on the brick
• Can add a lot of value to your property

CONS
• Can look ‘flat’ unless other changes are made at the same time (feature walls, trim details, exterior lighting etc)
• May not be suitable for homes of certain architectural styles or types of brick
• Usually expensive, especially if you hire a professional
• Requires ongoing maintenance to keep the render looking fresh and clean
