In this video Roger demonstrates how to use a fake brick effect render from Bostick.
The system is applied in two easy steps, starting with a grey mortar undercoat. Once this is touch-dry it’s followed by a coloured face coat which is cut through with a specialised tool included in the pack to expose the grey mortar underneath, creating a brick and mortar joint effect.
Both coats are polymer modified render, offering excellent adhesion and weather resistance whilst remaining vapour permeable.
With the summer months approaching, there is likely to be an increase in demand for external renovation and refurb products. This Brick Effect Render system provides a simple, effective way to revive the appearance of walls that may need to be updated – such as garden walls or prefabricated buildings.
