Cement renders are some of the most durable types of renders available. Stronger than a lime render, this sealed or painted render can provide additional support to a building when applied. It helps prevent the penetration of dampness or water through exterior walls.

Using a cement (most common is Portland cement) render is not recommended for an older home as it’s extremely rigid and could crack or break easily.

Cement renders are a popular option for builders and homeowners alike as they are a more cost-effective option compared to lime or polymer renders, cures quicker than most and is typically easier to apply. This is one of the most popular rendering options.


‘Mono,’ meaning one or singular and ‘couche,’ being French for diagonal, put together means, “single layer.” As a render, it provides protection from weather and adds decorative elements.

This modern type of rendering does not require a base coat and is often considered a good fit for new buildings and properties. Monocouche renderings are available in a wide range of colours through adding lime or polymer renders.
