Before rendering your home, there are a few important factors to consider. These include things like your budget, what type of render you want to use, where you want to render and whether you will hire a professional or do the job yourself.

Continue reading to learn more about the necessary factors to consider before rendering a home.


There are a few different things that can have an impact on the price you pay for rendering your home. If you have a tight budget, these things might influence the type of render you get and how much of your home you render. The factors determining the total cost of your rendering job can include:

  • The size of your home: Obviously, the bigger your home, the more expensive your rendering job will be. A single-storey home can cost up to $12,000 to render, while a double-storey house can set you back around $50,000.
  • Type of render: The type of rendering you select can also impact your final budget. Some types of rendering are more expensive than others (acrylic rendering and insulated rendering). While cement rendering and lime rendering are on the cheaper side.
  • DIY or hiring a professional: Another aspect of your budget to consider is whether you’re going to do the rendering job yourself or whether you will hire a professional. While hiring a professional may be more expensive upfront, it will save you money in the long run as the job will last longer, whereas doing the rendering yourself may cost you less, but the job may not last as long and need to be touched up in a few month’s time. You will also need to buy all the equipment yourself, which adds to the total cost.

Type of Rendering

Not only are some types of render more expensive than others, but some may also require more coats and be more labour-intensive, while others may not suit your home, or what you’re looking for.

Take the time to research each type of render and see the pros and cons of each one. Also, take a look at photos of the final look and videos of the rendering processes. There are also multiple colours and finishes that can be added to the render.

If you’re still not sure what rendering style is best for your home, contact a professional rendering company and they will be more than happy to give you some advice.

The Amount of Rendering Needed

Are you rendering the whole exterior of your home? Are you also doing some rendering indoors? Or some on your fence and outdoor shed?

The amount of rendering you want to apply to your home has an impact on the total cost of the project, and the physical labour that will be required.

Buying Equipment

If you’re carrying out the rendering project yourself, you will need to research the type of equipment you’ll need and go out and buy it yourself. This can add more stress and work to the rendering process and will drive up the cost.

The Rendering Process

Although rendering is one of the more easy and common DIY renovation jobs to do, there is still some level of technique and skill that is needed to do a successful job. You will need to do some research about the process and the steps you’ll need to carry out before and during the rendering process.

It can be easy to mess up the rendering itself and have to start it all again, so make sure you take the time to do it carefully so it looks nice and neat. Nobody likes a rushed rendering job.

Overall, if you hire a professional to do your rendering project, the end result will not only look better, but your rendering will last longer too.
