It should be covered on your homes building insurance and there normally very good and quick to sort it out as a rule. But obviously it will push your premium up.

Another option depending on how you bought the house because its only 2 years old. Is if its from a large housing developer (Barrets type ect) You may be able to claim that the render was defective.
I think, double check this 1st but i believe that all work plumbing leaks, electrical or anything structural like that should be be gaurenteed by the developer for a period of around 5 years. But like i say look into it 1st and you'l probably have to argue a bit.

Hope i was some help

Your buildings insurance will cover the cost but you will need to get a couple of quotes to send to them.If all else fails you could patch it up with a couple of deep fried mars bars.lol

if you bought it as a new build the house could be still under the builders warranty i would contact them first to see what is covered

The NHBC firstly if the house is covered under their warranty. You should have a certificate or some documents highlihting the houses warranty. You should find the correct number on there to contact them.

Wind should not blow render off a wall, it sounds like it has been incorrectly applied. But an NHBC warranty officer should be able to determine this and get it sorted out.

Get straight in touch with the original builder as rendering should stand up to strong winds, it was obviously defective.
