What Is Cement Rendering?
Cement render is a paste-like substance that can be applied to interior and exterior walls. Traditionally it is made from a combination of sand and lime mixed with water to form a strong cohesive paste. Modern cement renders often have bonding agents added to them to make it more durable and assist it in sticking to walls.
The purpose of cement rendering is to create a smooth finish on the irregular surface. The thickness of cement render can vary, based on the amount of render that needs to be used to completely create a smooth, straight finish on the wall.
The lime in the render mix this prevents cracking when the cement render mix dries and begins to harden. There are traditionally two types of sand used in rendering, coarse and fine sand with the coarse sand being used for the first coat render and the finer sand being used for the final or top coat render.
If you’re wondering why people render their houses or fences with cement, the main benefit is that it creates a smoother and more attractive appearance on the previously coarse surface. It can create the perfect look for your walls, fence and retaining walls, complementing the style of your home, or completely transforming it.

How Much Does Cement Rendering Cost In Sydney?
The general cost of cement rendering starts at a minimum of $35/m2 and usually stays within the price range of $40/m2. This would mean that a home of at least 300 square meters would cost between $10,500 to $12,000. This is of-course an estimation and the actual cost will be determined on a project by project basis.
There are a number of factors that contribute to the price of a cement rendering project including your location, size of your home, and the finishing you choose. Also, different types of projects are priced per linear metre or per day of work so it’s best to ask for a quote from Finishing Touch Rendering to get a proper idea of costs for your unique cement rendering Sydney project.

Regarding colour, there are several options for achieving the final colour of cement render. The first method is the only one where the colour is actually included in the cement, in the form of oxide as a liquid. The oxide colouring will have inconsistencies once mixed in, so the final colour will have varying shades throughout the render, which also changes over time.
The other option is to apply a layer of coloured acrylic render or paint over the cement render after about a month, for the final colour. As for which colour to choose, our specialists can test and show you different colours during the mixing stage of the render to determine the best cement colour that should be used for your walls if you choose not to paint.

Ali applied a light render to three internal brick walls at our house and did an excellent job. His communication was prompt and the quote was well priced. Ali arrived on time, he is friendly and professional and was thorough in his explanation of the process. He did a sample patch first and sought our approval to ensure that we were happy before he proceeded, all in all it was a great experience. Ali was also very respectful that he was working inside our home and kept the work space very clean. We highly recommend Ali and his team and should the need arise for further rendering work, he will be the person we contact. Thank you Ali.
