To achieve that contemporary render finish to the exterior of your home, several cement rendering methods and products can be used.
Traditional Sand and Cement
The most common render finish used in Australia is the traditional sand and cement method. With this method the render is applied using a steel trowel, straightened with a straight edge, smoothed off with a plastic or wooden float and then lightly sponged. If required there are various texture and rough cast finishes that can be applied. The render can also have a colour oxide added to give a coloured finish however it is recommended that the render is either painted or a texture coating applied to give it a cleaner and more durable surface.
