What is Roughcast? What are the Benefits and Cost of it?

Roughcast is a type of render that is usually applied to external walls to improve their appearance and/or weather resistance. It is made from a mixture of cement, sand, water and sometimes lime. The resulting mix is then applied to the wall in a thin layer, usually by hand. Once it has dried, roughcast provides a textured finish that can be painted or left natural.

Roughcast has been used for centuries as a way to improve the look of exterior walls. It is particularly popular in countries with a Mediterranean climate, where it helps to protect against the harsh sun and heat. Roughcast can also be used in colder climates, where it provides an extra layer of insulation against the cold.
