What is Rendering?
Rendering, is essentially a process of applying cement to a concrete wall, or brickwork of internal or external walls, to ensure a smooth or textured finish.

Sand & Cement Rendering
This process is an excellent method for preventing damp penetration and is an affordable option. However, some buildings won’t be able to have a simple cement render applied, due to its inflexibilities or other conditions, so other specific renders are used. It is vital that you choose the correct render for your project and for clear advice, contact MPC Plastering today and we will talk you through your options, giving you the best possible guidance for your specific and individual needs. We will also offer you a FREE no-obligation quotation for any work provided.
Through Colour & Thin coat Render
This modern-day option is increasingly popular and can provide you with a great choice of colour finishes, also offering crack-resistant properties. With the latest technology, it is possible to achieve the durability and performance required, with almost any colour finish you desire.
How is Rendering Done?
The main ingredients to render is sand, cement and lime. The use of lime is to give a creamier texture with increased elasticity, reducing the chance of cracks once dried. The choice of sand is important ensuring it is fine and without any impurities. Render will also include coloured pigments if required as well as additives to help slow the drying process
Our rendering in Plymouth and the South West is applied with a trowel although top coats can have a variety of applicators including sponge, brush or hessian bag depending on the surface texture required
There are also more high-tech ways to accomplish rendering and of course we can provide these services also. Pre mixed acrylic products have a much better waterproofing finish and can be applied to a larger range of surfaces. There are also renders that can be sprayed using special equipment. These improve the drying time to around 24 hours as opposed to the usual 28 days.
Is Rendering a DIY Job?
The short answer to this question is yes but realistically it depends on the finish you require. Our renderers in Plymouth have been doing the job for many years and have the experience needed to produce a very high level of render.
