Rendering Garforth

Renderer Garforth

Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mixture of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to external (and occasionally interior) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is really common in the Mediterranean region, but is also a popular method throughout Southern Europe. A rendered finish is mostly used for cosmetic purposes but is additionally waterproof and has some fire retarding properties. There are 2 ways that colour can be put on to a rendered surface, either it can be painted as soon as it is dried out, or the colouring can be added to the render mix itself, providing a surface finish that is much more resilient and long lasting.

Giving a surface finish that looks very like travertine, limestone or marble, polished plaster is generally used on inside walls and ceilings. It offers a feeling of depth using natural shade variations whilst being sleek and smooth to touch.
