Wall Rendering Mistakes You Must Avoid By Any Means

by Sam Cameron Innovative Writer in Australia

If you have decided to give the exteriors of your property a facelift, cement rendering is your answer. Refurbishing comes in different forms. However, before you can conclude anything what is most important is you gain an understanding on the mortar mixing procedure. Remember this will ultimately add to the structural integrity of the property. Cement or wall rendering gives long-term results but when done in the wrong way it can create costly flaws. Scared already? In the following lines we have tried to discuss the common blunders which everyone should avoid especially while investing in wall rendering jobs. Are you ready? Have a look: 

Adding inappropriate portions of rendering materials 

This is one of the basic errors to avoid. It’s been found that most people care the least about what they are mixing and in which proportion. Cutting back on these proportions or just randomly mixing things can lead to errors which are hard to describe. Additionally, some people are so careless that they won’t invest much time for the drying process thinking that its not even important. Also, its hard to avoid instances when lack of knowledge lead certain individuals to apply excessive render mix at a single go. What is most important here is, the cement renders must be held on to the walls by applying great force till the time they dry up. However, when wall rendering is not accomplished properly the mixture won’t bind well with the walls and is least likely to fill the holes and crevices on the surface. 

Not readying up the base prior to the rendering job 

Most people lack patience and building rendering is one of the jobs that demand tolerance. Lack of patience or an attempt to complete the job in huge hurry can lead to uneven and flawed surfaces. There are actually times when people would forget to prepare the surface before a rendering job; what they don’t seem to understand is the fact that the presence of debris and grime on walls can lead to further damage. Furthermore, if there are cracks on the wall surface they need to be filled or covered properly. It is crucial to treat the walls before a rendering project and get the same dried. 

Gently apply mortar 

Remember rendering is not like painting. Its impossible to apply mortar using hands only. Rendering services demand application of force along with efforts to hold up the mixture on walls in order to ensure it binds well and remains intact. When it comes to applying mortar, you need to ensure the bind is good and intact. The process is not similar to painting where coats are applied simply with the use of a brush or a roller may be. 

Mixing excess of sealer along with the render 

People generally suffer from a misconception thinking that the denser the sealer the greater will be the cement render. They even assume that adding a sealer in excess can prevent the moisture from penetrating. This however, is not right as excessive sealer can make the cement composition extremely messy. During the first stage its important that you add in proper amount of sealer so that its neither too thick nor too thin. If after applying the sealer you discover the finish is absolutely fine you can think of adding a second coat. We will suggest that you talk to a professional if things don’t look good. 

When you are planning for building rendering make sure you avoid the mistakes as discussed here as they are likely to lead to flaws which you will hardly be able to fix. In that case, its always better you hire a professional for the rendering job.
