When it comes to building a structure making a renovation do not make the mistake of trying to cut corners or save capital when it comes to plastering. Plastering should be attempted by experienced and skilled plasterers who specialize in plastering. This article explains in detail how the plasterer goes about his trade. Before starting a renovation the plasterer removes any of the old plaster that is being replaced along with any other dust, dirt or debris. After the surface is clean apply plaster weld adhesive for to bond new plaster. In order for the plaster to be set properly this process must not be skipped because without the plaster weld adhesive, the plaster will not stick to the walls. Once the plaster weld adhesive has been applied the plasterer will wait until the wall has dried and is sticky to the touch. Once the plaster weld adhesive is the perfect sticky texture the base coat plaster can be applied. The mixture must be to the exact specifications.
Properly mixed plaster will be able to stick to a level trowel without sliding off the edges. When you have this consistency you are ready to begin the base coat plastering of your walls. When base coat is dry, we will apply the finish coat to a smooth or textured finish. Also, colors can be added to the finish plaster. Any dust, dirt or debris will contaminate the mix creating uneven surfaces and may destroy the surface altogether. As a rule of thumb always do your research first and find a plasterer who is highly skilled and experienced in the field of plastering to insure the work is done professionally.
