Specialized wall coatings are suitable for all commercial and residential work. The benefits of wall coatings include the following:
- Products are water-resistant;
- Cover all hairline cracks;
- Retain their colour over time;
- Provide a variety of textures;

Apart from their decorative good looks, coatings offer the best protection to surfaces due to their strength, thickness and durability. Coatings are typically applied by trowel or sprayed on up to 5mm in thickness and come in various textures and in a variety of colours. Coatings can be applied to any substrate that is smooth and hard. (Trowelled products are covered in plastering)
Specialized wall coatings are usually applied by the manufacturer or by an approved applicator.
