Ever noticed how each exterior wall of the houses in your locality is different from each other? You see a mixture of properties, some with exposed brick exterior, some are modern, some are old, some are covered with a coat of cement rendering. Cement rendering is the application of a premixed layer of sand and cement to brick, cement, stone or mud brick. It is often textured, painted after application or colored. Generally, it is used on exterior walls but can be used on an internal wall as a feature.
Traditionally, rendering was just spreading concrete mixture over the surface of the walls to “render” it smooth or textured. Today, wall rendering is at a whole new level. There are various types of rendering your wall can get along with some added benefits to it. It includes traditional cement rendering, colored rendering and acrylic rendering. The color rendering is similar to the cement one. The only difference is the addition of the desired color in the process.
