An Overview Of Home Improvements - Plastering

When it comes to improving your home, there is always going to be a few different places that you can start. However, one of the easiest ways to upgrade old walls, change things around, and make everything look new is to do new plastering. This is because plastering and then finishing over a surface makes it look new, gives a better surface for paint, and can allow you to add new insulation or upgrade electrical, etc. It is one of the places where you can add in all sorts of other repairs, but where you can also keep costs down. Follow our advice about plastering and you will have done a great job.

The first step in the plastering process is to prepare the area that is being worked on. This usually means that you would knock down old walls, put up drywall, make sure all plumbing or electrical work was done, and generally make sure that the area is ready to be sealed off. This can usually be done by the company that is doing the plastering work, or you can do it if you are doing it by yourself. The area being worked out can be big or small, but most people prefer to work on a whole wall, just to make painting a bit easier.

The next step is to seal everything in place with a small amount of plaster. This means any holes, marks and so on, will be covered. This is where drywall starts to look less like random slabs and more like an entire wall. This step will often involve sanding down the first layer as well, making sure that everything is perfectly smooth.

Now the area is ready to actually apply the plaster. Depending on the finish desired, there may be more than one level. The first level of plaster will be smoothed onto the wall, levelling it out, making sure that the drywall and everything behind it can't be seen. After this, if a raised finish or something similar is desired, another layer of plaster may be added.

Sometimes a small hole will have the area around it patched, re-plastered, and then smoothed with the rest of the wall as well. This is a bit more complicated than doing an entire wall, but it does take less time and can be much cheaper for people who don't want to replace an entire area.



Once the plaster has been laid, it is time to let it cure and finish drying. Don't touch it during this time, don't get it wet. You could try and use fans or a dehumidifier if you live in a really wet area. Also try and keep all dust and debris off of the plaster.

Finally, the plaster is done and ready to be painted or papered. At this stage, the entire area can be primed for painting or sealing and then the room can be finished. The process may seem complicated, but it usually takes less than a day from start to finish, much less time than the actual painting process.
