Plastering and Rendering are often confused, but as you will read – They are very different!
Both services treat and prepare walls for painting or decorating.
Rendering is applying a wet finish to a wall in Australia. It is primarily cement-based and done on exterior walls.
Rendering is most commonly seen on a home’s exterior to cover over existing brickwork and provide a smooth surface that may be painted over, or the render incorporates colour pigments.
It is also used to make a sturdy outside wall or fence that can be painted by covering masonry and blue board walls.
How does the rendering work?
Cement rendering revitalises your walls.
Rendering may make your property look current and fresh without the expense of a completely new facade.
Some building materials, such as Besser blocks, deteriorate with time. If you want a brand new home, IC Company’s rendering service may cover your old walls and give your house an entirely new look. Rendering can be used on almost any building surface, including:
Blue slab/fibre cement Besser Blocks
Polystyrene brick-facing levers
Regardless of the surface on which the cement is placed, cement renders can give your walls a smooth or rough appearance. You can either have a final texture applied to the walls, or we can use an acrylic finish that includes the render’s colour.
The following finishes are available for rendering walls:
Pocket made of acrylic
line that repulses
Scratch (2mm or 3mm) (2mm or 3mm)
Swirls of Stucco/Screed (2mm or 3mm)
We can also match the surfaces of existing walls surrounding your home, ensuring that your newly rendered walls do not stand out if you do not want them to.

Plastering In Brisbane And How it Differs
Plastering in Australia is similar to what is known as drywall.
Gyprock or drywall plaster sheeting boards make smooth interior walls ready to be painted over.
The internal installation of inflexible building sheeting or boards comprised of gypsum plaster sandwiched and attached to cardboard outer covers is known as dry plastering.
Cornices, false and suspended ceilings, fibrous plaster or boards, or fibrous cement sheeting or boards are all installed (not including work that provides structural support).
It does not include any outside cladding work done by carpenters.
Plastering teams are frequently required to install wall systems when working as commercial plasterers.
Before the plasterboard sheets are put, a steel stud and track frame will be installed.
This is how commercial office buildings may quickly construct and finish their interior walls. The plastering teams can set up their walls because the timber structure is avoided.
Plastering walls provides a smooth texture to surfaces and aids in surface preparation for painting.
Remember that hiring a professional plasterer is the best way to ensure the finest quality plastering. The initial stage is to prepare and evaluate the plaster surface, followed by plaster application and any necessary finishing.

It is the most popular choice among Australian builders since it is simple to install and ideal for lining walls or making partitions. It is also available with fire protection, moisture resistance, and sound insulation.
Plastering While Wet
It is comparable to rendering, where the mistake between plastering and rendering arises. Wet plaster is a solid plastering mixture of lime, cement, gypsum, or other minerals that gives a smooth and long-lasting wall surface. Wet plastering takes a skilful application and dries in 2 to 7 days, depending on the undercoat. watch
Plastering for Ornamental Purposes
It is used to sculpt design elements such as moulding and cornices. It can be put to the ceiling, columns, or walls immediately.
Plaster of lime
It is rarely utilised since it necessitates a specific application procedure. It comprises lime and sand and has a tough, breathable surface.
Cement plaster is a rough, greyish material composed of cement and sand. Although it produces a robust and long-lasting wall finish, it frequently shrinks and breaks with time.
