Rendering & Plastering

Are you looking to work with an expert rendering and plastering company.

The basic difference between plastering and rendering is; plastering is carried out on interior surfaces while rendering is undertaken on exterior surfaces. More specifically, the difference between plastering and rendering concerns the combination and type of materials used.

Material Composition

The basic composition for both rendering or plastering is broadly similar – cement, sand, water and sometimes lime. For rendering, a coarser, higher proportion of sand is preferred. For plaster finer sand is used in the interests of a smoother finish.

There are a wide variety of premixed renders for different applications – some such as K Rend – have additives (polymers) which offer enhanced water resistance and strength. Acrylic premixed renders offer a high degree of water resistance and strength.

Finishes

Modern techniques and skills mean different types of finish are achievable for both plastering and rendering. Rendering usually produces a coarser finish than plastering. Pebble dashing is also a type of rendering.

ADVANTAGES OF RENDERING & PLASTERING

Advantages and disadvantages of plastering walls.Plastering involves covering the wall exteriors to render a solid surface. The process of plastering is in use for a long time. Wall plastering helps add a decorative texture to the walls and can be applied to the entire room or a specific portion.

So how long does each type of render last? With the modern acrylic or plastic-based renders, expect a job to last from anywhere between 20 to 40 years. This can depend on the smoothness of the job and how clean the walls were prior to its application.
