Plastering refers to the process of applying a layer of cement mortar over an exposed wall surface. This layer of plaster protects against water damage and other external weather elements, while helping you achieve both durability and aesthetic appeal in the home.
The plastering process involves adding gypsum to pre-wrapped wallboards that were produced in a factory. The gypsum fills cracks and open spaces, after which several coats of a compound are added to smoothen out the joints.
Labor typically involves adding a clean substrate, followed by mixing veneer plaster with trowel plaster. This plaster is then added to the substrate and spread out consistently. Plastering can cost between $3.46-$4.10 per square foot. Depending on the company you hire, you may need to pay additional costs for job supplies such as seam tape, fasteners, or topping compounds. These tools can cost between $25-$29.
There are additional factors that may influence the cost, including the size of your home, conditions of work being done, and your specific location.
Finding the right plaster companies can help you receive quality services at a competitive cost. When looking for a company to hire, consider their upcoming schedule, accessibility to your walls, and how much preparation work needs to be done. These factors will affect both the cost and quality of service.
