Cement render consists of 6 parts clean sharp fine sand, 1 part cement, and 1 part lime. The lime makes the render more workable and reduces cracking when the render dries. Any general-purpose cement can be used. Various additives can be added to the mix to increase adhesion. Coarser sand is used in the base layer and slightly finer sand in the top layer. The application process resembles the process for applying paint. To ensure adhesion, the surface to be rendered is initially hosed off to ensure it is free of any dirt and lose particles. Old paint or old render is scraped away.

What causes cracks in cement rendering?
Cement render is a massive, immovable, and thick, and heavy covering for a building’s substrate. The cement render has no give to it, and can’t move without cracking. So, if the cement render is applied incorrectly, it will shift and break over time and damage the underlying structure.
- Applying cement render in poor weather conditions can cause cracking over time.
- Freezing and thawing cycles will crack cement render.
- Failure to adequately seal junction details leads to cracking.
- If the underlying building construction is inadequate or has experienced damage, the cement render will start to show signs of wear and tear.
- What happens if you don’t repair cement rendering?
It’s difficult to determine if the cracks are the primary cause of render failure, or if something else has caused the rendering to crack. Regardless of who or what is the culprit of cement render breaking, it’s imperative that you have it repaired. Not only does cracked cement render look unappealing, but it can also lead to severe structural damage if left untreated.
- Rainwater and moisture invade the crack.
- Water will create a freeze/thaw cycle within the cement render, damaging it further.
- Cement render can erode over time and damage the building substrate.
