Plastering is the process of covering rough walls and uneven surfaces with a material called plaster that is soft when applied, and dries hard. Plastering is one of the most ancient building techniques, with the earliest known recordings of plastering dating back to 7500 BC, and it’s known to have been used all over the world, from Africa to China.
So why has this been such a popular technique throughout our history? Plastering is essential to building a lasting, comfy and beautiful home. Here’s everything you need to know about it and the benefits of hiring a professional to do the job.
By covering your walls and ceiling with a mixture of lime or cement concrete, sand, and water, your wall becomes more waterproof and smooth, enabling you to paint it any colour. Plastering also helps prevent dust from gathering in your home.
However, plastering is notoriously tricky and messy work, and it’s incredibly easy to get wrong doing it yourself. That's why plastering is one of the great skilled trades, as the results of a skilled plasterer will by far out-do a DIY job and last for many years.
