The steps involved in rendering your home
If you rely on a service provider that has expertise in everything from bagging to Venetian plaster techniques, then cement rendering should be a relatively straightforward process. We’ll unpack everything involved below and give you insights into what we do for our partners in the world of premium house rendering solutions:
Rendering consultation and choices
We like to take the time to engage our clients in a detailed consultation to understand exactly what their needs and goals are. This helps us in selecting the perfect type of rendering and your desired texture/finish.
After we’ve made key decisions about the rendering that’s right for you, we’ll arrive on-site and start by preparing the surface. It must be cleaned and cleared of any contaminants that may affect how the render adheres to the wall.
Preparing the materials
We’ll then mix the render and prepare the necessary tools. This usually involves the work of mixing the materials with water, and/or pigment or oxide and substances such as aggregate for the texture or finish.
We’ll then carefully apply the render, and it could take place in multiple layers depending on the texture you’re after. We only use the best and most appropriate tools to do this and then we’ll allow it to dry and cure.
This may include various decorative finishes or textures that can be achieved by changing the tool used on the final coat.
How long does rendering take?
This is entirely dependent on the size of the area being rendered, the type of render you’ve chosen and, believe it or not, the weather! We’ve got a broad understanding that we’re happy to share with you, but these are only ideal estimates, and the real thing could be entirely different. Cement render could take a couple of days to a whole week for rendering your entire home. Professional acrylic rendering will take longer and could require as much as 2 weeks to finish across your entire home. There are many safety and surface considerations set out by the Australian Building Codes Board that may also play a role in timelines but we’re here to help you navigate them all.
Benefits of cement house rendering
We already mentioned that rendering isn’t just pretty it also has protective qualities that go a long way in strengthening the walls of your home. Because the look if it is what gets the most attention first, it’s clear that the aesthetic is the most striking feature. And you can explore many options in relation to colours and texture differences if you’re looking for something unique. Aside from how good it can look; we love to give our clients information pertaining to its structural benefits.
Cement rendering, and the other types, have the remarkable ability to give your existing walls extra strength and protection against the elements. That means it can assist in protecting you against wear and tear caused by different weather elements and other environmental concerns. Rendering ultimately adds a layer of protection against exposure to weather damage. As you can imagine, this will extend the life of the existing walls for many more years than previously anticipated. Polymer rendering also offers the additional benefit of waterproofing your property and is the perfect option for your rendering project due to its water-resistant properties. The rendering also provides insulations due to their improved ability to maintain heating and cooling conditions within the building, thanks to the additional layers applied to the surface area of the property.
