Different Types Of Plastering
What Will Suit Your Home?
Different techniques that a plasterer uses. There are two types of materials used in plastering – plaster-based materials and good old cement. While plaster is more suitable for indoor use as it does not tolerate moisture well, cement is a tried and tested material that can be used indoors and outdoors. Many points can help you achieve artistic plastering.
Plasterboard or Drywall: This is an interior plastering technique that uses boards to cover the walls of your room. The boards is a synthetic material with a greenish tint. The plasterboards are screwed to the wall, and the joints between the board and the wall are plastered and smoothed. Plasterboards come in different ranges for different conditions. Such as four sound proofing, wet areas or fire resistance factors.
Veneer plaster: Similar to to the plasterboard technique, the walls are covered with plasterboard. However, the plasterer does not just plaster the joints but the entire boards. Instead, a very thin layer of plaster or cement is used You can give your wall a different look with veneer plaster. Textured surfaces are very fashionable today. Another type of veneer plaster that is becoming increasingly popular is Venetian veneer plaster. As the name suggests, this type of plastering technique gives your home an old-fashioned look.
Exterior plastering : There are different types of exterior plaster, which is also called stucco. The rough plaster looks like a stone wall, the trowelled plaster that gives the finishing touch, the coloured exterior plaster where lime oxide is used so that the surface can be finished in beautiful colours.
There is also pebble plaster, where small pebbles are used in the finish to give a chic look.
Rough plastering: This technique was widely used among stucco artists at the end of the 20th century. It consists of a coarse mixture of pebbles, shells, sand and cement thrown onto the wall with a trowel. With this technique, the entire wall is evenly covered with the mixture. However, because the mixture is coarse, it gives your walls a rough, almost rustic look. Although this technique is no longer prevalent today, it is still used in country houses.
Modern stucco: This technique is used by a stucco plasterer for exterior plaster. It is a mixture of lime, cement, water and sand. The plasterer determines the ratio of the materials. The mixture should be smooth, unlike roughcast.
