How to Do Tyrolean Rendering

Tyrolean rendering is a finish on masonry or concrete wall surfaces. This type of decoration is done using a machine with mixed mortar. The rendering appears like a thick carpet on the wall with big beads. It also has a rustic feature. The finish is durable and has good weather properties. As in plaster work curing and ensuring correct mixes is is very important. Mortar mixes can have colored cements incorporated to make it more attractive.

The Tyrolean rendering can be done on a rough wall surface. The wall surface can also consist of a troweled backing. This is for internal finishes when doing feature walls. Rendering done on external walls should be mixed with at least ten percent of lime. The thickness for this finishes on troweled backings should be at least ten to fifteen millimeters. The Tyrolean machine to use should throw the mortar mixture evenly on the wall surfaces.

When preparing the Tyrolean mortar mix, it should be like a cement slurry. The machine has wires embedded inside that collect the mortar as they spin and splash it on the wall or ceiling surfaces. Commence by preparing the surface. Reduce any stone or concrete offsets. Trim to form a fairly smooth surface. Apply the backing coat evenly with a trowel. Use a wooden float to smooth by swing upright runs. Allow this texture to dry overnight.

Add Tyrolean mixture into the machine and whirl the wires round. As the mortar mix is applied to the wall or ceiling use a towel to remove excess mortar. On feature walls use a timber batten to mark the area to be rendered. After the surfaces are complete, remove the battens. Once the texture is dry additional paint work can be done. Alternatively colored cements can be applied to achieve desired effects. Cure the mortar with water for a week .
