A typical cement rendering job costs $41/m2 on average. However, the overall price of this type of service may vary depending on your location, the size and scope of the project, and the type of finish that you have chosen. Because of these variables, cement rendering prices can range from $37/m2 to $45/m2. As an example of a total house render, a house with a total exterior wall surface area of 450 square meters would range between $16,000 – $20,000
While most renderers charge per square metre, you may also receive quotes that are on an hourly basis. The average hourly rate of cement rendering experts is $45/hr.
Factors that affect cement rendering rates
Cement rendering prices are determined by a number of factors such as labour and the tradie’s level of skill and expertise. Businesses with an established reputation and plenty of work experience may charge more for their services compared to those who are just starting.
Also, if the rendering job involves upper level floors or areas that cannot be easily reached, you will probably be charged for the use of a scaffolding. If you choose to rent a scaffolding from a different supplier, make sure to discuss this with your renderer so that they can remove the cost of the scaffolding in their quote.
Having lots of windows can also increase labour cost since these will require more work around the edges as opposed to rendering a plain wall without any windows.
Apart from that, the type of finish that you want can also affect the final price. The most basic rendering job can give you a smooth finish. However, if you want a decorative touch to make your wall unique, be prepared to shell out extra for that.
Cost per state
Cement renderers in Queensland charge the lowest average cost at $32/m2, while cement rendering businesses in South Australia rate their services at approximately $62.50/m2.
Victoria and Western Australia have almost the same average rate for cement rendering at $43/m2 and $42.50/m2 respectively. Meanwhile, residents of New South Wales are only paying $35/m2 for a cement rendering job.
