What is Cement Rendering?
Cement render is a composition of cement, sand, water, plus lime or clay. The render is normally applied to rough surfaces such as brick, stone or concrete blocks, as well as painted walls after being appropriately prepared. The purpose of cement rendering is to create a smooth finish on the irregular surface. The thickness of cement render can vary, based on the amount of render that needs to be used to completely create a smooth, straight finish on the wall.
What are the benefits of cement rendering?
If you’re wondering why people render their houses or fences with cement, the main benefit is that it creates a smoother and more attractive appearance on the previously coarse surface. Cement render is available in a wide variety of textures and colours, such as natural or pigmented. It can create the perfect look for your walls, fence and retaining walls, complementing the style of your home, or completely transforming it.
For a more distinct, textured finish, coarser sand can be used, while finer sand will achieve a smoother result. Rendering the exterior walls of your home with cement is also a brilliant way to protect your house from the weather and the often harsh Australian conditions. For these reasons, when choosing Rapid Rendering to achieve a premium cement rendering result for your project, you’re increasing the value of your property and projects.
Not only is cement rendering perfect for domestic properties, but it is also an effective process for commercial projects.

How much does cement rendering cost?
There are a number of factors that contribute to the price of cement rendering. For large, straight internal and external walls, cement render is measured in square metres. Openings in the wall, such as windows and doorways, will contribute to how the rendering job is priced. Some rendering work is priced per linear metre or per day of work. The textures and colours chosen can also impact on the final price, so it’s best to ask for a quote from your local rendering professional to get an estimate of costs for your unique rendering job.
