The appearance of a home can be transformed with wall coating or rendered walls. A tired looking home can be brought back to life. With a choice of coating and rendering colours, even the fussiest homes can colour matched.
Rendering is applied to the external walls of homes and buildings, filling any gaps or deficiencies. Render is a mixture of sand and cement. Render transforms the exterior aesthetics of a home as well as providing protection against the elements. Once dried, rendered homes can be painted, however, you could be waiting months for the mixture to fully dry.
The whole process starts with scraping the walls, removing an existing render or paint layers and all the things in between.
Once the scraping has been completed, the next second step is to dust off the walls. This can be done with a broom or a brush. Dusting can help break away any moss or fungi growing on the walls and rid any loose debris.
After you’re done with step two, wash the walls with water to get them wet. Damp walls are necessary for the remaining process.
Lay a cover on the ground beneath the walls. A sheet helps protect the ground from render debris.
There's a number of recipes for mixing render all with their different strengths, bindings, and color. The core ingredients are sand and cement. Customers looking to tackle the work themselves may choose to purchase pre-made render. Mixing a ratio of about 25 kilograms of mortar with four litres of water (always check the instructions first).
Once the render mix is ready, it's evenly applied to the external walls.
Applied rendering is combed from top to bottom. This helps the second layer of render to bond. Let the mixture dry when you have finished combing.
Once the walls have dried the second layer of render can be applied to the exterior walls.
Sponging with a damp sponge will smoothen any bumps and provide a shine to the finished walls.
Allow the render to fully dry out. Protect damp walls from unwanted paw and hand prints. Once dried, the render can be painted in a colour of your choice.
The 2 main differences between plastering and rendering is location and mixture. Rendering is applied externally, whereas, plaster is used internally. Both mixtures include sand, cement and lime, however, render mixture contains a larger quantity of cement. Due to the higher level of cement, render is stronger than plaster, thus, great for covering external walls and providing protection against the weather.
