How To Render – Made Easy

Wall cladding involves applying a layer of material such as sand and cement (lime can also be used) to a brick or masonry wall to make it smooth. If desired, the walls can then be painted. You can get a best 3d architectural rendering service in Australia.

Things you'll need: wire brush, plastic or wood float, wire scraper, steel trowel, wooden slats, straightener, spray bottle

Preparation is key: make sure the walls you are finishing are really clean and etched so that you get maximum lock and suction between the stucco and masonry.

Break any old plaster or loose mortar. Remove all growth or organic matter. If the rock has a smooth surface texture, break off the front to create a plaster lock.

Attach vertical slats to the wall with a thickness of about 10 mm and about 900 mm and, if necessary, wrap them to absorb the waves on the wall.

When attaching the first lath to a corner or wall, make sure it is straight and upright, even if the walls are not straight. Each space between these screeds is filled separately.

This method is the easiest way to ensure a smooth and even rendering. Before you start, lightly spray the walls to keep them damp. This contributes to good suction power.

Add just the right amount of clean water to get the best mix that can be crushed, too wet, and will fall and dry and you won't be able to apply it (it will crumble). Also, add a waterproof plasticizer to the mixture.
