The alarm bells should definitely start ringing if orbital sanders are being used with any regularity.

Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of lime, cement, sand and water is applied to external (and sometimes internal) walls to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is a popular method throughout Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resistant qualities, though it is largely employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is possible to paint a rendered surface, a more effective option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.
