A rough “bagged wall” requires one coating of render mix applied thinly and usually in circular patterns by hand by steel trowel, sponge or wood float. A bagged finish usually entails a rough, rustic finish but this can be left up to personal taste. It can be thick or thin but usually void of the care taken with a smooth and thicker render finish. From a quick smearing of render mix by a bricklayer, to a thicker pattern by a plasterer, a bagged finish conjures up a rustic look. It also needs to be noted that there are a vast array of proprietary products on the market that include colour pigments and come in pre-mixed formats that a homeowner or professional can purchase.
Is it cheaper than rendering?
If a bagged finish is required to, say, a standard 13mm thick cement render layer, then much the same rates apply as per render.
Granolithic Topping or stair topping
Is the Supply and application of a cementious topping to stairs and floors. Toppings are used when the existing floor level is not adequate for the desired finish and also makes it non slip.
Non slip tread strips can be applied for extra safety in public high traffic areas. (Insert pictures of stairs x 2).
