Rendering Keyworth

Wall Rendering Keyworth UK

Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of cement, sand, lime and water is applied to external (and occasionally internal) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is a popular method all around Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered surface has some fire resisting qualities and is waterproof, though it's largely employed for cosmetic purposes. There are two ways that colour can be put on to a rendered surface, either you can apply paint once it's properly dry, or the colour can be added to the render mix itself, providing a surface that is much longer lasting and more durable.

Screeders Keyworth

Screeder Keyworth (NG12)

Screeding entails the pouring and spreading of a sand and cement mix, to produce a flat and smooth floor surface. Generally screeding is applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to take on the final floor finish, to be left as a wearing floor surface or to cover underfloor heating pipes. A correctly laid screed can considerably increase the life of the complete floor and establish its finish, durability and quality. The mixing of screed by hand is only suitable for small areas, and preferably a screed pump should be used to rapidly ensure a smooth, even mix of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this fine mix directly to its required location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like. Among the various sorts of floor screed are: structural screed, traditional screed, floor levelling compound, free-flowing screed, bonded screed, unbonded screed and fast drying screed.
