What is Plastering?

Plastering or plasterwork refers to all construction and decorative work carried out by certified plasterers. Plaster, made from gypsum, lime or cement, is a powder, which is mixed with water to form a paste. This paste dries and hardens in place much like mortar. Plaster is versatile and can be used for decorative moulds both inside and outside. Plaster is also easily manipulated with metal tools and sandpaper to give a range of aesthetic finishes.

Design Solutions and The Plastering Process

Plasterers often offer design consultations to help you make an informed decision on both the aesthetic and practical aspects of your new plasterwork. After an initial survey, plans will be drafted for your approval. These plans will include a final design including a cost estimate of all required materials. Once you sign of on these plans, the plasterwork can begin. Depending on the extent of the plasterwork, construction can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days to complete.

Your plastering questions answered

Is plastering a messy job?

Yes, plastering can be quite messy, the contractor you select will provide adequate protection for your floors, windows, furniture and other belongings.

Can cracks be covered by plastering over them?

This depends on the cause of the crack as well as how deep it is. When cracks are caused by moving or settling, covering them is not recommended, more cracks are likely to reappear in only a short while. Hairline cracks can normally be covered by "skimming" the surface with fresh plaster.

Can I do plastering myself?

With some practice and some patience, plastering can become a do it yourself job. Small jobs like repairing nail holes or small cracks can be done easily, while more complex ones like applying Venetian plaster may take some more practice.

How much does professional plastering cost?

This will depend on the type of plastering technique employed, and the complexity of the job. In general, you can expect to pay between £200-1,500 for a professional plastering job.

How long does it take wall plaster to dry?

That will depend on the thickness of the plaster and what the humidity level inside your home is. Plaster can take anywhere from 2 days to one week to dry in most cases.
