Your existing render may start looking slightly tired after a few years or maybe you’re just not so keen on the colour anymore. You can easily ask a licensed painter in Brisbane to add a fresh coat or two to give your render a complete makeover, and a fresh look. It is a cheap way to get a new look but also to maximise the longevity of your existing render application. Rapid Rendering specializes in acrylic and cement rendering in Brisbane and we can also provide repair or restoration services. We already have many cost guides for rendering prices, but we would like to cover how much it would cost to paint over your render. The cost or price to paint a rendered house in the Brisbane area may change based on different things and they all have some weight in the potential for increases and decreases in the overall cost.
Painting over render is also similar to the painting of other wall surfaces and therefore the cost is largely the same. That means that you need to factor in the cost of how much paint you’ll need to cover all the square metres that make up the surface of your property. Typically, a low set, normally sized 3-bedroom house in Brisbane would cost anything between $4,000 and $6,000 for a basic paint over render job. This price is just a guide and is dependent on the condition of the render, the preparation required, and all the number of coats required. There is also a difference between cosmetic and protective paint coating over render, and we provide both. You can also head over to our paint over render calculator to help you with a better figure of the overall cost, but here is some more information:
Cost of painting over rendered walls in Brisbane
The price range for a standard low-set home is anywhere between $4,000 and $7,000 and that’s across the board for render and other elements including gutters and doors. Standard sized double-storey homes in Brisbane will require much more paint and therefore, are more costly to paint. You can expect to pay between $9,000 and $12,000.
When expert paint over render work is done on the exterior of a rendered home, the price will also include the fascia, gutters, soffits, and exterior doors. Please note the price range we are talking about is allowed for a repaint scenario only and not for any surprises which may change the outcome. Painting can be done on many diverse types of renders including cement, acrylic and bagging. Naturally, we always expect every project to be different because we treat all of our customers that way. This means that each client may have a price that is unique to them and the best way to find out your unique price is to call us for a free quote and compare them with other reputable tradespeople.
The surprises that could end up in you paying more include:
If the licensed technician you’ve employed for the job will have a tough time accessing the entire surface of your property, they will have to use scaffolding to complete the job. Scaffolding or other forms of access extension aren’t cheap to use, so this might affect the overall cost of the job.
The age of your render
Newly rendered or painted walls won’t need as many coats of paint on them to give them the fresh look you desire. The older the surface is, the more that may be required and that means we’ll have to buy more materials. However, there is a bit of a hitch when it comes to newly rendered walls. Fresh cement rendered surfaces are very porous, and that means that they’ll suck up more paint, this means they may require the addition of stabilising solution, primer and up to three coats of masonry paint. For walls of this type, expect the work to take an extra day or so with additional costs for materials and labour. The rendering business you choose – if you use a properly licensed and insured provider, they can give you quality guarantees and that means that they won’t give you strangely low prices.
