Acrylic render is suitable for many internal and external applications, including brick, existing render, painted walls and ceilings, balustrades, polystyrene, cement, and concrete blocks. Like cement rendering, acrylic rendering can be completed in many finishes and colours, so there is sure to be a combination that will perfectly suit the inside or outside of your home.

Acrylic rendering is often considered to be a superior option to cement rendering as it is more flexible, therefore being more resistant to cracks and having increased durability when small movements in the wall occur. It will last for a long time, being more resistant to water and UV rays. Acrylic render is highly suited to locations where the weather changes frequently, as the material’s flexibility will accommodate for these changes as it moves with its foundations. Acrylic rendering can be applied to a greater variety of surfaces than cement rendering and is fast to apply as well as quick-drying. Acrylic rendering is appropriate for application on timber and fibre cement, where cement rendering won’t stick.
Acrylic render is also easy to apply and can be trowelled, rolled or sprayed onto a surface. A two-coat application is common, sometimes in two different colours. Acrylic also dries much faster than cement renders, only taking a few days to cure as opposed to a month. Acrylic render is also better suited to allow the wall or material underneath it to breathe and is less susceptible to the growth of bacteria and fungi thanks to its water resistance.
The most significant benefit of utilising acrylic rendering on the exterior of your home is that it is far less prone to break over time owing to its flexibility. This means you won’t have to worry about your home’s natural expansion and contraction producing unattractive hairline cracks in your render. Acrylic rendering is quite appealing, and it can be applied in a variety of ways, allowing you to get a variety of finishes. You may choose between a smooth surface that looks like concrete and one that is beautifully textured. Another advantage of acrylic rendering is that it can be applied to a variety of surfaces such as painted walls, concrete, wood, fibre cement, and so on.
Acrylic render is quite flexible, but one of the most common queries is whether it can be used on surfaces such as wood and weatherboard. Generally, it’s recommended not to apply to render to wood, plywood, weatherboard or anything similar. Acrylic renders should ideally be applied on fibre cement sheeting or blue board. It may also be used on other surfaces, such as brick, block cement, concrete, and plasterboard if they are properly prepared.
Colours in acrylic rendering
The most common acrylic render colours are grey or off white. These are typically left in their original condition, although the light colours allow them to be easily painted over.
