What Is Smooth Rendering?

Smooth rendering, also known as a float finish or traditional finish, is a way of rendering an exterior surface to protect it from the elements while leaving a smooth finish. You can smooth render your house as an alternative to pebbledash for a simpler finish. Once it is painted, it provides the exterior wall with protection from the weather, and the render lasts for many years.

Rendering is different from plastering because it is applied to exterior walls rather than inside. Sand and cement render also uses more cement compared to plastering to provide protection from the elements.
