Mar 29th 2015 at 11:09 PM

The cement rendering is a process of applying render to the external facade of the building and it is done prior to plastering it. As for the exterior of a building the rendering is done along with plastering. In this article, we will discuss the different forms of rendering and where we can use it.

Lime Render

One of the oldest, forms of lime render, which contains Natural Hydraulic Lime and so, are better known as Natural Hydraulic Lime render this type of render finds maximum usage in the building construction. One of the reasons to use this kind of render as it is breathable and flexible. Though this render was very popular when it started, yet it is rarely used now.

Sand and Cement Render

One of the most common cement renderers in Sydney used to date is Sand and Cement Render. This render is a mixture of sand, cement and water and requires two coating to do the finishing or top coat. While the scratch coat of this render is formed by of four parts sand to one part cement, the top coat includes 5 parts sand to one part cement. The top coat is done after a day or two days of scratch coat. In order to increase the flexibility of cement a part of hydrated lime is also added. The scratch coat is applied for Spar Dash and Pebbledash and the stone is added when the coat is wet. In case of the rough-cast, the stone is mixed in the coat and the coat is just applied as a top coat.

Single coat using Colour Renders

A single coat is required to apply over the building when it comes to Monocouche renders. These renders are very helpful, especially in cases where the project is big. Using this render can reduce the installation times at cases where the machine is used to apply render. The usage of this render helps you neglect the process of decorating as this paint does not require it. The best part is that the render is coloured and so are used only on project where the client demands its requirement.

Thin Coat Acrylic and Silicone Renders

These render uses coat, i.e. by its name are thinner, but uses a thicker polymer base coat. They are available in a wide range of colour and texture so as to provide varied solutions to its customer. Due to the thick base coat and thin top, coat these systems are resistant to cracking.
