18 Feb What You Need to Know About Plaster Repair
Plaster walls can be beautiful— as long as they’re properly cared for. Yet even the best cared-for walls can develop cracks and chips as time goes on. If you’ve found yourself in place where you’re looking for an experienced plastering company that can help you with this type of job, you’ve come to the right place.
The experts at Premier Plastering of SW Florida have been helping clients repair their plaster walls for years.
First things first- DIY jobs are not advised
Plaster installation and repair should always be done by a trained professional. You likely have an understanding that you shouldn’t attempt to rewire your home if you’re not a licensed electrician. You also probably understand that when it comes time to repair or replace your roof, that’s the type of job you’d want to pay a contractor to handle.
You can think of plaster repair in a similar way.
If you have holes, you’ll need to properly remove what’s damaged, apply bonding agents, apply at least one (but likely two) layers of plaster and you’ll also need remember to apply the correct amount of joint compound.
If you’re not an experienced installer you run the risk of completing one or more steps incorrectly. Should this happen, there’s a decent chance you’ll need to hire a pro to fix what you didn’t do right to begin with. All in all, in a case like this, your out–of pocket expenses will be far more than what you would have paid had you hired a professional to begin with.
It’s also worth noting that a DIY plaster repair job will require some specialized tools; you’ll want to factor that expense into the cost of the job.
A pro will get the job done quickly and efficiently
Time is money. When you work with an experienced plastering company you can rest assured the job will be done right. Professionals also know how to get jobs done efficiently, which means it will take a pro far less time to fix your plaster, than it would take you.
