Are you looking to renovate or completely redecorate your home in the near future? If so, Quality Preferred can help. But first, let’s define what plastering is and how it can add a tremendous amount of value to your home.
Plaster is a building material used for the protective or decorative coating of walls and ceilings and for molding and casting decorative elements.
Plastering is a building technique that has been used since ancient times. Most notably, it was used by the Egyptians to help build the pyramids.
When most people set out to remodel their homes, the only things they tend to think about are what type of materials they want to use on their countertops or how much more space they want in their closest. And while those things are important, they aren’t as important as the interior walls. You see, it is the walls that provide you with the privacy and separation you need in the home.
And when it comes to sound cancellation and durability, plaster is unmatched. Plaster also has a level of artfulness that you can’t find with materials such as drywall. On top of that, plaster is flexible and is easy to clean. Drywall, on the other hand, is not very flexible and can easily be damaged by water. Drywall is also not as durable as plaster.
If you plan on doing a lot of hanging, framing, and taping, plaster would be the best option for your interior walls.
Yes, plaster offers more flexibility than drywall. But that doesn’t mean drywall is all bad. There are some advantages to using drywall for your interior walls.
The biggest advantage is how quick it is to install it. Installing drywall is not as labor intensive as installing plaster. Because of this, you will be able to save a great deal of time and money on your project.
Drywall can also help reduce sound, and it adds a layer of fire protection due to the water in the boards.
When it boils down to it, the interior wall material you choose will depend on your personal preference. Both options have their advantages and disadvantages. You have to choose the one that will work best for you.
