What is Smooth vs Rough Plaster/Render?
Be it wall treatment or material- the term plaster or render sands for both. Whether it will be smooth or grainy surface, it highly depends on the type and method of plastering used. The smooth rendering consists of gypsum, cement or synthetic resin that allows the finish of wall decors like paint, panelling or wallpaper.
