Cement rendering (or solid plastering) is the application of a mixture of sand, cement, lime and clay applied to brick or cement block, which is then screened flat, floated and sponged to your desired finish. It can then be textured to suit your needs then followed by subsequent clear or colour *protective coating membrane paint application. Cement render is generally used on exterior and interior walls.
Depending on the look you’re after, rendering can be:
Fine or coarse
Textured or smooth
Natural or coloured (tinted) pigmented
Protective coated with membrane paint to the *colour of your choice
The cement rendering of bricks or cement blocks has been used for centuries to improve the appearance and sometimes weather resistance of exterior walls. It is a wonderful way to improve the appeal and therefore increase value of your house or project.
