Designing with Resene Construction Systems

Resene Construction Systems provide the most advanced plaster cladding solutions made in New Zealand. Rockcote Systems and Plaster Systems comply with current building code requirements, are durable and finished in the Resene colour of your choice.

Texture Styles

The Resene Construction Systems range of textures is comprised of pre-coloured and cement based finishes, all applied by hand. Pre-coloured texture styles are 100% acrylic and can be tinted to your selected colour, these textures are overcoated with ‘Environmental Choice’ accredited Rockcote Armour which assists in providing an easy clean surface.

Cement-based texture styles are not tinted to your selected colour, rather they are applied grey (uncoloured) and are painted in your selected colour using Rockcote Armour or Resene X200.

Texture finishes such as ’Santa Fe Adobe’ and ’Traditionale Sponge’ are only available as cement based texture finishes.

As there are many texture styles to choose from, it is important that the texture you choose compliments your design and personal tastes. Your registered Resene Construction Systems plasterer will be able to show you samples of the various Resene Construction Systems texture styles that are available.

Check your quote to see what texture style was quoted for. In most cases Rockcote ’Classico’ Pre-coloured or ‘Traditionale Sponge’ paint finish are allowed for, as they are the most popular. If you desire a texture style such as, ’Casementi’, or ’Santa Fe Adobe’ which are classed as heavy finishes and will require more product and a higher labour content, please advise your plasterer.
