    morning all.
    the plasterers are coming ion next week to plaster in the new exstenion i have built at home.
    i have got to get the board finish wall beads and skrim tape in for them.
    anybody know a rough guide to how many square meters one bag wil cover?
    i can work out how much area is to be plastered and use it as a rough guiid for how many bags im gonna want.
    thanks alot

    10 Sq. Mtr's per 25kg bag, at 2mm thick, but the thickness will vary.

    i normally aim for 7m2 per bag as a rought guide, this normally covers any undulations in the walls.
