Rendering Carrickfergus: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process by which a mixture of lime, sand, cement and water is applied to exterior (and now and again interior) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is very popular throughout Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire resisting qualities and is waterproof, although it is mostly used for aesthetic purposes. While it is quite possible to paint a rendered surface, a better solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.
