Parex supplied a high performance, spray-textured render in two contrasting colours for an exclusive development of luxury homes close to the historic market town of Kendal.



Situated in the southern gateway to the Lake District, Stonecross Meadows is a stylish development of three, four and five-bedroom semi-detached and detached homes. In order to achieve the desired aesthetics, developer Jones Homes required a weatherproof render which offered ease of application and would successfully complement the homes’ natural stone façade. This led to the specification of Parex Monorex GM, a one-coat weather resistant and breathable render, for the various house elevations.

Jones Homes specified Parex Monorex GM in Pale Yellow and Smokey Grey for the homes, garages and surrounding walls of the development. Parex Monorex GM was sprayapplied to the concrete blockwork and to provide additional reinforcement and crack resistance at stress locations around openings, Parex TV10 Mesh was embedded into the render during the application process.

More than 5000m2 render was applied by Parex registered applicator North West Render Ltd who said: “We recommended the use of Parex Monorex GM for this development due to the product’s ease of application and superior finish having used it on previous projects. Once again, the spray-applied application ensured a consistent, high quality finish”.

 Furthermore, Parex’s quick response with samples and a full system specification also helped secure the project with Jones Homes, one of the UK’s leading home builders.

Monorex GM is suitable for machine spraying or hand application and can be finished in a range of styles from medium scraped, light tyrolean to heavy roughcast textured finishes.
