Interior plastering consists of adding a coat of plaster to internal walls and ceilings in order to provide a smooth finish for surfaces that are prepared to decorate. It is much more straightforward to decorate using paint or wallpaper if you are applying these to a smooth plaster finished surface. Plastering is a reasonably common DIY job, but it could be worth employing a professional to make sure your internal walls have as smooth a finish as it can be. Some areas can be more problematic than others to plaster, as it can be tricky to finish around corners.
There are various different kinds of plaster that are designed to be applied to different backing materials. Applying plasterboard to brickwork, concrete or plasterboard will demand a different type of plaster. Different plasters can also make a different finish, for example an extra tough finish for high traffic areas, or a variation in the thickness of plaster. Usually two coats are recommended when plastering. Internal walls will initially be plastered with an undercoat and then a top coat will be added to smooth. However, there are one coat plasters available which may be attractive when plastering as a DIY job or for smaller repair work to existing plaster. Plastering internal walls can improve the thermal efficiency of your home, as well as increase sound proofing and prevent damp rising.
