Frequently Asked Questions
Can you render over my existing bathroom tiles?
Yes, we can render over your existing bathroom tiles! Should any be cracked or broken, we will even remove them and fix them for you
Can you render over the top of red brick on the outside of my home?
Definitely! However, It is a 3-step process to completely transform the exterior of the home from red brick to sleek modern render.
Will my render look exactly like the images or sample?
Even though Townsville Texture Coating will do our very best to give you the perfect render, this cannot be guaranteed. Every situation is different with a different base or platform to start off with. Our samples are from the absolute best case scenario but unfortunately, this is not always the case but, are many steps that we complete in order to give you the best finished product for your scenario.
Prior to rendering, the cladding is removed and the wall is assessed. If the cladding is directly over fibro sheeting then the sheeting can be rendered. However, if there is no fibro sheeting underneath the cladding, the walls will need to be sheeted, and then rendered. This is just one example of how a scenario can differ from best case.
How long does the render need to set before paint?
Quicksand Render is quite quick to set with only 24 hours needed before applying paint. However, natural renders may need up to 30 days to fully cure prior to painting.
I have noticed a thin crack in my rendered wall. Does this mean my render will fall off?
Although thin cracking is sometimes referred to as 'crazy cracks' by some tradesmen, it is not typically anything to worry about. It is mostly caused by the movement of the building due to natural patterns in the ground during changing weather conditions. Even though this is very difficult to reduce or predict, we do use polymer-based products to help avoid this.
Even though this is usually nothing to worry about, if any large areas of cracking or any cracking exposed to rain or sprinkler water do occur, it is always best to give us a call for advice on possible sealing or repair.
How do I clean my glossy rendered wall?
Simplicity works best! When cleaning your Marrakesh or venetian surfaces, you will usually only need to use some clean water with a small amount of Black Soap added and a soft sponge to remove any grime that has built up. These surfaces are finished with a layer of soap solution so grime is much less likely to build up on it in the same way it can do on other various surfaces. This makes it easier to clean and especially useful in areas such as showers, where grime can be an issue.
There are a couple of things you should avoid when taking care of your Marrakesh. Most importantly, avoid using any kind of harsh solvents such as bleach, as this could damage the surface. It is also important to exercise care with bath bombs, oils and some shampoos as they may contribute to staining.
