Frequently Asked Questions

Brisbane Stone Render can render anywhere you like! As long as the surface is structurally sound to hold the weight of the render. We can apply any of our renders on your inside or outside walls, brick fences and retaining walls.

Before rendering a house Brisbane Stone Render thoroughly clean the surface/bricks/wall before we can start.

We tape up paths, driveways, windows, doors and other areas to prevent any splattering or spillage of the render.

After we have applied the render we clean the area to ensure your home is left clean and tidy.

Sand Finish cement render is primarily a cement-based render using either cream or grey cement. Sand finish usually requires painting to ensure the render will last.

Limestone Render is made using crushed limestone. This gives the product more strength than ordinary cement rendering. Limestone render does not require any maintenance or painting, weathers extremely well as limestone is a natural product and is highly resistant to cracking.

We strongly recommend Sand Finish render is painted, this ensures the render is protected from the elements and lasts much longer. Cement renders with a flat/smoother finish are much easier to paint.

Acrylic Render once completed is already coloured as the colour is mixed in to the render mix. You shouldn’t have to paint unless you wish to change the colour of the render at a later date.

We recommend Limestone Render is not painted. The major attraction of limestone render is it’s natural earthy tones and textures.
