Many people immediately choose to render as an option for revamping the walls of their home or business property. They often underestimate the affordability and attractive look of bagging as an option. When renovating a brick home, you might think that you only have two options. Professional rendering or leaving the surface as is. Have you got a brick wall that you want to be covered but you’re not sold on the clinical look of rendering? Bagging might be the perfect answer for you, and it has many benefits that make it unique when compared to rendering. If handled by a Brisbane bagging specialist, it is a process that is equally effective at producing a high-quality, attractive, weatherproof exterior finish – all for a fraction of the price when compared to render types. Bagging is very similar to rendering when it comes to its application because it is also a mixture that is applied to a brick surface and left to dry. There are two main differences between the two, the overall finish and the potential for money saving!
How much does bagging cost?
Bagging is cheaper than render because it is the same concept as plastering and doesn’t require complicated manufactured formulas. That means it demands fewer materials and is quicker to apply. This is a more economical option for homeowners, and it is sure to provide the same protective qualities. The price is largely dependent on the size and location of your property, but you can expect bagging to be MUCH cheaper than cement rendering prices – maybe even by half as much. If the cheapest acrylic render application is $30 per square metre, you can expect a bagging installation in Brisbane to cost between $15 and $20 per square metre. For an average house with a surface area of 400 square metres, you can expect to pay anywhere between $5,000 to $7,000 for the whole house. You can also use our handy bagging calculator to help give you a better estimate based on your specific number of square metres.

What are the benefits of bagging?
Bagging is the lightest and cheapest choice of all rendering types. It also uses a mixed formula, but it requires much less material. It’s also an easier, and much cheaper job for a professional to do because it’s quicker to apply and less cumbersome. This means you’ll have to cough up less money for materials, making it more economical. After its application, expect a robust and long-lasting protective layer that can look great if left as is but it’s also great for painting. We only use the highest quality bagging materials that will deliver an attractive, versatile textured surface that gives it some character and not a boring texture-less look. The products we use are ideal for the Brisbane climate because they are tough against the following:
- Heat, even extreme sun exposure on a daily basis
- Water, making it perfect for the occasional storm we experience
- Salt, ideal for coastal homes

Bagging is affordable and ridiculously cheap
The truth is that rendering services can be extremely expensive because it can completely transform your home. We suggest you consider bagging because it is equally capable of providing a stunning, durable application for a fraction of the cost of render – and there’s nothing we enjoy more than saving our customers all that extra money
Bagging is uniquely attractive
There is something incredibly unique about bagging and that’s because it doesn’t hide imperfections entirely. It still leaves some bumps and dips to show which gives your home an interesting look. Clean lines and finishes can be boring especially if everyone in the community is copying that same look. Bagging is a treatment that will always be different from the next because each home is different from the next.
Bagging is very long-lasting
All Australians are remarkably familiar with wild weather events and humid climates. We can experience the scorching sun and sudden tropical storms all in one day on this side of the country. Bagging is just as tough as other render types at protecting your walls against all these elements. Bagging stands up to these extremes, so you can rest easy knowing your investment will look its best for years to come.
