Cement rendering is a popular decorative and protective finish that is widely used across the construction industry. Whether it’s a modern home or an older building in need of a facelift, cement render is the ideal way to improve aesthetic appeal as well as protect the existing substrate.

Quickwall’s cement render finishes come in 20kg bags and contain a blend of sands and cements, along with various cement additives to improve workability, durability and provide flexibility. Most of our cement render range requires the addition of our advanced wet Polymer additive, which further enhances the quality of the render and ensures it will adhere to all substrates.

Developed in the wet tropics, Quickwall’s range of cement-based renders are made to withstand Australia’s harshest climates. Whether you’re on the coast, live in high humidity or simply want a render that will go the distance, our products won’t let you down!

Our Cement Render Coating / Texture Finishes

Our renders have been tried and tested for over 25 years. Initially designed for use in saltwater swimming pools, they are made to withstand the toughest conditions. We’re confident yours will remain in excellent condition long after its application. There are several texture finishes to choose from, allowing you to customise it to suit your style and architecture.

Traditional render is a versatile finish suitable for multiple applications, such as bagging over bricks or blocks, sponging or steel trowel finish. It can be used as a thin filament coating (e.g. Skimcoat base coats), or as a higher build screed finish of up to 12mm with excellent holding properties.

Quickwall offers a range of premium UV stable oxides that can be added to our white based, mineral finishes such as Quickwall Plaster Plus White. Plaster Plus can be finished to a fine, sponge finish, or by varying the trowel and application technique, it can achieve an Adobe, Santa Fe natural render look.

These renders do not require painting but will need to be sealed with Quickwall Clear Seal to protect them from staining and oxide fading. Oxide coloured renders are a specialised finish that look great when incorporated into the right design. Oxide tinted renders are deliberately designed to look rustic and aged and will produce colour variations depending on the application technique used.

Oxide tinted renders are not recommended as an alternative to painting, they are a specialised finish and should only be selected when this specific look is desired.
