Cement Rendering


Cement Render is a combination of sand, cement and clay or lime. Cement render can be applied to brick, cement, stone and painted walls (undercoat must be applied first so render does not fall off) when going onto painted walls. In cases where render is to go onto painted walls acrylic render is recommended over traditional cement render.

Cement render is a great option for rendering your home, even though acrylic render materials are being used more often then ever before. Cement render has a disadvantage when it comes to flexibility as acrylic render can withstand wall movement to a larger degree than cement render. Cement render is a great product that can hide imperfections of old or bad brickwork and create an extra layer of protection to fight erosion

Cement render is generally used as an undercoat, meaning it is never usually the finished product.

What are my options during and after cement rendering?

  • Adding oxide to your cement render mix

This is the only option where your colour is included in the cement, this is done by adding a liquid formula to rendering mix. It is worth noting oxide colouring is not consistent which means in the case you were tpo choose grey oxide you will have varying shades of grey on your walls and also the shades of grey will change over the years. With that being said although decreasing in popularity some people do decide to go with a cement render and oxide finish.

  • Coloured Acrylic Render

This applied on your cement render after about a month, it is longer lasting and 20 times thicker than paint giving it durability. Coloured acrylic render comes in every single colour your paint comes in and a lot of different textures. If you do decide to go with a coloured acrylic render look we definitely recommend your base coat render be acrylic render instead of cement render. Coloured Acrylic Render cannot be applied directly to a wall without an undercoat.

  • Painting

Paint like coloured acrylic render cannot be applied straight away on cement render, you will need to wait about a month. If you decide to use acrylic render base coat then you can paint in 48 hours.

Cement render is the most traditional and common rendering option. A paint job usually follows after about a month. Other rendering options like acrylic rendering base coats with a colour finish are creating more and more options for consumers.
