    "It’s still applied in 2 coats however it finishes less smooth than standard multifinish to give it an older look. You can also put it on thicker to get over older/rougher walls."

    "It depends on state of plaster underneath wallpaper some customers will paper over the walls when stripped but most tend to want to plaster so it’s easier to maintain it’s just a case of painting after walls are plastered"

    "One coat plaster is only good for plasterboard and the benefits are no different to multi finish apart from doing one coat instead of two but takes same time roughly"

    "One coat plasters are very good for patching small holes or repair work, although not really used on a complete wall that needs to be resigned."
