Painting and decorating is a key ingredient to a beautiful home. Before you begin decorating or re-decorating your home, learn more about the plastering side.
Plastering is a much underrated stage of home and office renovation. It is thought that any mistake of a plasterer can be concealed by a coat or two of paint. It can be true in very rare cases. Plastering affects the look and feel of the painted surface.
There are quite a few plasters, but two main types – gypsum based and cement based. The latter are used mainly for outdoors, generally for rendering. Gypsum based plasters are used indoors only – damp will attack a gypsum based plaster and cause it to crumble. Cement based plasters can be used indoors for areas that are susceptible to damp and areas that require a greater thickness of cover.
Shown in the pictures to your left are two projects the top one with gypsum based plaster and the bottom picture with cement based plaster.
