Bagging Rendering Finish Services

Bagging Rendering Introduction

Bagging rendering finish is a form of rendering that can be achieved using numerous different materials and products. Bagging rendering takes different forms, but to be defined simply it is coating of a wall in one coat (usually). In some instances a second coat may be required but this is not so common.

Bagging rendering is growing in popularity due to its ease of maintenance, rustic style and ability to overcoat with paint whenever a colour change is required. This article will discuss bagging rendering finishes, options and also provide before and after photos of homes that have a bagged rendering finish.

Cement Rendering Your Home or Bagging Your Home

When it comes to rendering your home, there are many options. Below is a summary or cement rendering vs bagging rendering.

Cement Rendering

Cement rendering is the most traditional of all finishes, it is straight uniform and finished with a sponge with sharp edges. Cement rendering finishes are over coated with paint and it is the most common method of rendering.

Bagging Rendering Finishes

Bagging rendering finishes just like cement rendering is a traditional type of finish, once completed its characteristics include a rougher finish, brick outlines visible and a non-uniform finish.

The decision to pick one or the other will be determined on your personal taste when it comes to the finish of your walls.

So you decided to bag your home what is next?

If you have decided you want to bag your home there are a few decisions you must now make, below is a list of questions you will need to answer in order to get your what you want.

Option 1

Sand Cement Bagging or Acrylic Bagging

Sand cement bagging and acrylic bagging are fairly similar when it comes to look, though sand cement bagging comes out a bit finer (marginally). Acrylic Rendering has polymers inside the render that makes it a bit more longer lasting and resistant to weather. The decision between the two will need to be made before rendering

Option 2

Coloured Bagging or Painted Bagging

Coloured Bagging is the addition of a colour additive to the mix to give it a colour, these colours are earthy colours and not consistent colours in that they will be various shades of the colour you select. The colour you select will be selected by you as we create these colours at your home specifically for you. Coloured Bagging characteristics also include a slow fade over time

Painted Bagging really means we bag it and then you get it painted after we are done. This option is a good idea for you if you want a pure Dulux or Taubmans colour.

Option 3

3) Super Skim Bagging (SSB)

Super Skim Bagging means we will apply the least amount of render we can which will mean more bricks visible.
