Sand and cement render application

What is Flat Render?

Sand and cement render, also known as flat render or simply “render,” is a traditional and widely used exterior wall finishing technique in the construction industry.

It involves the application of a mixture of sand, cement and water to the external surfaces of buildings. This mixture, often referred to as “render mortar” or “render mix,” is applied as a protective and decorative coating to exterior walls, providing several benefits:

Weather Resistance

Sand and cement render forms a weatherproof barrier that protects the underlying structure from the elements, including rain, wind, and UV radiation.


Once properly applied and cured, render becomes a durable and long-lasting surface that can withstand wear and tear over time.

Aesthetic Appeal

Render can be customised with different finishes, textures, and colours, allowing for a wide range of design possibilities. It can give a building a smooth, textured, or even patterned appearance, enhancing its visual appeal.


Depending on the mix and thickness applied, render can contribute to the thermal insulation of a building, helping to regulate indoor temperatures and reduce energy consumption.

The application process of Sand and Cement Render

The process of applying sand and cement render typically involves the following steps:


The wall’s surface is cleaned and prepared, ensuring it is free from dirt, dust, loose paint, and debris.


The render mix is prepared by combining sand, cement, water, and occasionally colour pigment. The exact proportions and additives can vary depending on the specific project and desired finish.


The render mix is applied to the prepared surface using a trowel or a rendering machine. It is spread evenly and smoothed out to achieve the desired finish.


Once the render is applied, it can be finished in various ways, such as sponge-textured, smooth, or even patterned, depending on the design requirements.


The newly applied render needs time to cure and set properly. This curing process ensures that the render becomes hard and durable.


Unless a colour pigment has been applied the render will dry cement coloured. It can be left in it’s natural state, painted or a decorative coating can be applied. If painted this will have to be regularly maintained.

Sand and cement render is a versatile technique used for both new construction and the renovation of existing buildings. It helps protect the structural integrity of the building while enhancing its appearance.

Plastering is typically done indoors to create smooth and even walls, while rendering is an exterior application used to protect and beautify external walls. Both involve applying a mixture of materials, but the purpose and techniques differ.

The drying time for render can vary based on factors like weather, humidity, and the type of render used. Generally, it can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks for render to fully dry and set.

It’s essential to allow fresh render to cure properly before painting. This can take around 4-6 weeks, but it’s advisable to follow the manufacturer’s recommendations. Using a breathable paint designed for render is crucial for a successful and long-lasting finish.

Common signs of render damage include cracks, flaking, discoloration, or a powdery surface. These issues can be caused by various factors such as water penetration, weathering, or substrate movement.

To maintain rendered walls, inspect them regularly for any signs of damage or wear. Clean the surface when needed, and if you notice any cracks or damage, consider repairing them promptly to prevent further deterioration. Regular maintenance helps extend the life of your render.
