Interior rendering is growing in popularity. Achieving a concrete look feature wall that doesn’t have the environmental impacts a concrete wall does is truly amazing.
What makes Tadelakt so special is that, unlike concrete, this amazing Moroccan plaster finish has green credentials perfect for bathroom renovators and builders looking for eco home ideas and sustainable design.
In this post, we look at the green credentials behind Tadelakt and explore why people are turning from tiling to a smooth as marble Tadelakt finish.
Astonishingly, Tadelakt is a finish that is completely natural. Being a pure, natural product with no chemical additives means Tadelakt has some seriously good green credentials.
Thanks to its anti-fungal and antibacterial properties, (mould and mildew resistant) Tadelakt is great for bathrooms with poor ventilation.
At Render it Oz, we believe Tadelakt will continue to become more mainstream as the population realises that sustainable building is the way of the future.
Rockcote Australia, who have an amazing range of natural materials, including the Tadelakt, Render it Oz use, explain all their products in the Natural Finishes range are “free of dangerous chemicals and produce no odours or residual off-gassing”.
They go on to say their natural materials range have low embodied energy and are fully recyclable which means they can be returned to the earth after use. (Rockcote, p. 8)
In our interview with Tony Thorogood, Rockcote’s Natural Materials Manager, Tony explains his top three reasons why people looking to build in a more environmentally friendly manner prefer Tadelakt over other surfaces:
- Tadelakt is a product that comes from the earth and can go back into it.
- Being a breathable product it helps with Mould as mould does not grow on Tadelakt.
- Using a natural product, means the home you live in is not suffering from toxic poisoning.
