Cement renders are some of the most durable types of renders available. Stronger than a lime render, this sealed or painted render can provide additional support to a building when applied. It helps prevent the penetration of dampness or water through exterior walls.
Using a cement (most common is Portland cement) render is not recommended for an older home as it’s extremely rigid and could crack or break easily.
Cement renders are a popular option for builders and homeowners alike as they are a more cost-effective option compared to lime or polymer renders, cures quicker than most and is typically easier to apply. This is one of the most popular rendering options.
