Rendering and Plastering
We believe “quality” is a key factor. At Freshlook Plastering we promise to give our customers the best quality work possible at all times.
The differences between sand and cement rendering and Acrylic based renders:
Acrylic premixed renders have even higher enhanced water resistance and strength. They can be used on a wider variety of surfaces, including concrete, cement blocks, and AAC concrete panelling. Acrylic renders take only 2 days to dry and cure- much faster than the 28 days for traditional render.
Traditional “cement render” means site mixed sand and cement. Some builders/renderers support cement render as the finishing system for economical reasons. The initial visual look of painted, sponge finish cement render is very similar to acrylic render, but there are some differences:
- Acrylic render will not display typical sand and cement weaknesses such as herrigbone cracking and drunnyness.
- Sand and cement rendering takes around 4-6 weeks to cure before it can be painted.
- Acrylic render can be painted in 3-5 days, which means saving in scaffolding costs.
- Sand and cement rendering is 10mm thick, whereas Acrylic render can be applied as thin as 4mm.
- Acrylic render comes packed in 20kg bags which means less mess around the workplace.
Traditional cement rendering is the application of a premixed surface of sand, cement and lime to brick, cement, stone or mud brick. It is often textured, tinted or painted after application. It is generally used on exterior walls but can be used to feature an interior wall.
We do internal cement rendering and solid plastering, new or renovation as well as external acrylic and cement rendering with a large variety of texture finishes and colours.
Do you have that dated 70’s brickwork look on the interior walls of your home? We can give your interior that fresh, modern, contemporary look, in most instances without the need of replacing the existing cornice work.
Cement rendering is a quick and affordable way to renovate an old home or a great way to save money when building a new home. Transform an unfashionable brick home into a stylish contemporary home. The look that is achieved is sleek and modern, The out-lay is exceeded by the increase in the market value to the home.
Interior Finish, Float and White Set:
In the industry we call interior cement rendering “Floating” and the white plaster that covers the cement “Setting”, which leaves the wall smooth and ready for painting. Applying a high quality “Float” is essential to achieving a high quality “Set”.
