Rendering, also called float, is to cover the brickwork with cement. On external walls it can later be covered in an acrylic texture coat whereas internal walls will be set with plaster, ready to be painted. External plaster is not only visually pleasing, but protects the building from wind, rain and sun.
Texture is a flexible and durable acrylic render solution that can be applied almost anywhere and everywhere. Texture gives a course feel that is tinted to your desired colour. Typically used on external walls, it is becoming common place to find in garages and theatre rooms.
Aging walls? Renovating? Damaged walls? Maybe walls need to be prepared for tiling. Plastering repairs, remakes, renovations and any kind of preparation task can be accomodated.
An experienced crew for commercial projects. Small, medium and large commercial projects, we have a reliable team to deliver a job on time and on budget. Previous completed projects include office buildings, schools, churches and factories.
We are Perth’s premier plastering and rendering service. With an experienced crew, we have well over 20 years’ experience in all aspects of plastering; both internal and external, commercial and residential.
Over the years we have been heavily involved in new home constructions. Working with builders all across Perth – Notably Next Residential / Aveling homes we have performed the rendering inside and out as well the texture coat (acrylic render) of many large two storey homes.
Working so closely with builders, the team at Architex Plastering know how to deliver quality work, time and time again. It’s no wonder we’ve been in the industry for so long.
So what is plastering anyway? And how does it differ from rendering? Commonly the words are used interchangeably, but the large difference is where they are used. Both refer to the process of covering an erected wall with a cement mixture, but their purposes are different. An internal wall will be plastered – a mixture of less cement is directly applied and it is then sealed with a white set plaster ready for painting. On outside walls we render – this is to apply a more cement rich mixture that can withstand better the elements of sun and rain. Outside walls can then be sand finished or covered in an acrylic render (texture coat).
Renovations is another part of the service. Do you have ageing or cracked walls that could do with a repair. Perhaps you are renovating your kitchen or bathroom? If it’s walls that need to be sealed ready for painting, tiles or a texture coat, the team at Architex Plastering can help.
We look forward to working with you.
