About Plaster Repair

Plaster walls are found in many older homes in the St. Louis area. A plaster wall or ceiling consists of layers of plaster over wooden lath. As time goes by, the plaster can break loose from its wood lath, causing it to crack. Patching plaster is a complex job. Simply filling a crack with spackle joint compound is pointless; it just comes back. The only sure fix is to reunite plaster with its lath.

First, we will determine how much of the existing plaster needs to be removed to ensure a successful, long-term patch. After we remove the plaster, we will fill the hole with metal lath. Then we’ll mix the plaster material and apply it to the wall using specialized tools. Finally, we’ll apply the finish coat, which is either floated smooth or textured to match the condition of the existing wall. We can restore the wall’s original look or enhance it, using different styles of plaster work to compliment the aesthetic of your space.
