SURFACES THAT CAN BE RENDERED?

Render is usually applied to brick, concrete, cement or stone surfaces but it can also be applied to earth (in the case of mud brick walls and so on).  It is suitable for rendering exterior walls, interior walls, mailbox render, and fences, indeed anything that is made from the above materials.  Render can be neutral, coloured or painted.

WHAT IS CEMENT RENDER?

Cement render is made up of three components – lime, sand and cement.  The purpose of the lime is to make the render more workable and it helps to minimize cracking when the rendering hardens.  The sand should be clean and contain no clay or plant matter.  Coarser sands are used for undercoats while finer sands are generally used for topcoats.

WHAT IS ACRYLIC RENDER?

Acrylic render, as the name suggests, uses acrylic (which is a type of plastic) in the render itself.  Because of this, it is much more resistant to cracking than other types of render.  It is also fast drying, taking only two days to cure and dry while traditional renders can take up to 28 days.  Acrylic render can be used to cover up small hairline cracks in masonry surfaces.

WHAT IS SOLID PLASTERING?

Solid plastering is also known as wet plastering.  The plaster is a mix of lime or gypsum mixed with sand and water and it provides a smooth, render finish. .
