Textured Render Finish
  • Enhanced durability: Resilient against water, UV rays from the sun, wind, sudden changes in the temperature or weather. When it is used as an interior paint, it offers extreme resistance to flaking, peeling, sagging and fungi algae growth.
  • Attractive looks: Long gone are the days of simple paint of a single color on the walls. Texture render finish brings a definite persona and a character to the walls of the room. They are far better than the wallpapers and monotonous wall colors.
  • Covers defects and cracks on walls: Under humid and hot temperature, we often tend to see the paint coats to come off at a very early stage. In textured render finishes the sagging and cracks on the walls are easily covered. This particular render finish is of a thick consistency which tends to correct the faults, uneven surfaces and imperfections on the walls.
  • Low maintenance: As this type of finish is extremely resistant and durable, it requires none or very little maintenance.

Tips on Applying Textured Rendered Finish on the Walls:

  • We must consider the drying and hydration time. The mortar should be left for few days before the work and longer in wet season to evaporate the water.
  • The water which is added in the mortar mix must evaporate first as it can later cause damp or cracks on the walls. It can also make the paint bubble by dissipating out of the wall.
  • Plaster calls, snots or small beads of render can get flickered on the wall and must be scraped off.
  • Proud render spots can be fixed by making them wet and applying plaster floats on them.
