Professional rendering in Brisbane will give your house a fresher look and increase the value of your property. Rendering is typically charged per square metre across the country, but you’re looking for a more accurate figure based on your home dimensions. Keep reading, and we’ll give you all the information you need.
The cost of rendering per square metre?
The cost to render a house is around $30 to $50 per square metre for a typical single storey home, but this is an average estimate for the entire country. In Australia, it may cost to render a house around $12,000. House rendering for a double-storey home can cost up to $50,000. Places that are taller and have double storey heights require that renderers use scaffolding. This would naturally increase the rendering cost because of the setting up of materials and the job’s difficulty.
You have the choice of different types of rendering for your home, with cement render being the most popular and most affordable one. Acrylic render will be slightly more expensive than cement render, with an estimated cost per square metre of $45-$55. We have calculators for all different types of render, including cement which is the most cost-effective. Render price per square metre in the metropolitan areas of Australia will be much higher than in suburban areas. The average cost to render a brick house, or any place for that matter, also depends on the professional experience of the contractor.
What are the most popular types of render?
No matter what type of render you use for your home, it will last for a long time, and you will get value for money from your investment. If you’re wondering about stays, you can expect a couple of years at least.
Cement render is created by mixing cement, sand, water, and lime or clay. Cement rendering products are usually applied to rough surfaces such as brick, concrete or stone blocks, or even painted walls that have been suitably prepared. The reason to use cement rendering is to add a smooth finish to a coarse surface.
There are several reasons that people choose to use cement render for their home or commercial building, related to both appearance and functionality. Cement rendering is an effective rendering option to produce a smoother, more aesthetically pleasing finish on a rough surface. Cement render can be made in a wide variety of colours, such as natural or pigmented. It is also available in various textures ranging from smooth to more textured. Finer sand is added to the cement render mix for a smoother finish, while a textured result is achieved using coarser sand.
- Acrylic rendering
Acrylic render is a rendering material similar to cement render but additionally features acrylic added to the product. An acrylic is a form of plastic that adds more flexibility to the render. Acrylic rendering is suitable for many internal and external projects. It is also offered in various colours and textures, meaning that there will be a finish that is perfect for your building project.
Acrylic rendering is a more preferred option to cement rendering in many instances due to its increased flexibility, as it is less likely to crack and is more durable. It is long-lasting and offers protection against UV rays and water damage to walls. Acrylic render is better suited to more surfaces than cement renders and provides fast application and minimal drying time.
Polymer rendering is a cement rendering application that effectively binds to all appropriate surfaces. The polymer added to the rendering product is very adhesive, so it is usually suggested when cement rendering or acrylic rendering may not be as effective. Polymer rendering is often recommended for wet areas of a property, such as a bathroom or a laundry, because additional waterproofing preparation is not necessary when applying polymer render. This type of rendering is also highly suited to external walls thanks to its weather resistance, therefore increasing the durability of your property or other building features.
