In my view, when it comes to home design there isn’t much more stunning than plastered walls and ceilings handsomely decorated and tastefully lit.
Plaster was the alternative for interior walls and ceilings for several decades. Any of the most prominent houses, structures and even castles have been decorated with plaster throughout the millenniums.Learn more about this at R.Kenward Plastering Contractors
After the Second World War, however, many architects and builders switched from using plaster for their interior walls and ceilings and started using drywall panels, and now more than 95% of all residential and commercial structures are built using drywall, or more commonly known as “sheetrock,” which is actually a trade name for USG gypsum, a company that manufactures drywall panels and many others.
But a few good souls still prefer plaster to drywall … any day. While the expense of getting plaster built is very high relative to drywall, but there is no comparison to the beauty and elegance of masterfully constructed plastered walls. So say the least, the elegance of all this is only incredible.
It is a well-known fact that plaster is rigid and inelastic, creating problems with cracks, mapping lines, crevices and even large holes.
Yet there is no excuse to press the alarm button on other homeowners that have plastered walls and ceilings. Plaster fixes are beyond the ability of the bulk of households, including men and women alike. In certain situations minor defects such as tension lines, tiny holes and even fractures may be fixed quickly by a beginner. But more serious issues should be left to a skilled plastering contractor who has the experience and expertise to correct your issues.
