Top Ceiling Plastering related questions

Yes! Just be specific when booking a Tasker to get your decorative plaster ceiling repaired or restored. Don’t forget that you can connect to many different ceiling plastering experts out there. You can also call on tradespeople who specialise in textured plaster ceiling repair, falling plaster ceiling repair or even repair small holes in plaster ceilings. Note that depending on the extent and nature of the damage, you may have to hire another expert to help in repairs.

It takes around 4 hours on average to plaster one standard-sized ceiling. In most cases, it shouldn’t take more than a day to plaster your ceiling, and that can include the time needed for site and materials preparation. It’s rare for ceiling plastering to take longer, although this may happen if there’s too much humidity and causes the plaster to take more time to dry.  

For best results, wait at least a week for your newly plastered ceiling to dry before painting. While your plastered ceiling may look and feel dry to the touch after a couple of days, it may not have completely cured. If still wet, the deeper plaster layers can absorb moisture from paint and cause it to peel off. Don’t risk painting your ceiling plaster too soon and hire an expert to do it. 

Yes, you can! Though you may want to wait for a day before moving in. The room can have a lot of condensation and feel damp, and it may not be the most comfortable area to sleep in. The good news is that most plasters are non-toxic, so while the area may feel damp, you don’t have to worry about inhaling any harmful fumes and developing an allergic or adverse reaction. 

Maintaining your plastered ceiling involves regularly cleaning and washing off stains. You can use a vacuum with a brush attachment to loosen and remove dust and dirt. Apply diluted hydrogen peroxide or bleach on stains, then wipe off with a soft cloth. Another helpful measure is never to smoke indoors. Tobacco smoke can waft up and stick to your ceilings and leave unsightly stains.

Yes, but only if you have the right tools, equipment, skills and experience. To simplify the work and use less plaster, make sure you have a plasterboard ceiling. Plastering a ceiling like this can take at most a day, but doing so requires a good eye and skilled hands to mix plaster to the right consistency and apply it evenly. Should you want a more complex plaster applied to your ceiling, you’d best hire an expert on our platform instead.

What do ceiling plastering services include?

Ceiling plastering services include all the activities necessary to apply plaster to your ceilings, following safety regulations, building codes and industry best practices. Your Tasker can ensure that your lath and plaster ceiling or even your decorative plaster ceiling is done well and lasts for years to come. You may also book this service for your plaster ceiling repair needs.

Site assessment

Your Tasker can take the necessary measurements to determine how much plaster and other materials are needed and what tools and techniques to use that can best plaster the ceiling. They can take note of any corners or features of the ceiling and prepare the site before plastering.  

Site & materials preparation

Note that you may want to hire someone to do the electrical wiring and remove any lighting fixtures on your ceiling before your ceiling plastering service begins. After assessing the site and planning their approach, they can prepare the materials and tools. Your Tasker can buy the materials if you don’t have them ready, and they can turn over any excess material after the work is done.  

Your Tasker can put up ladders or scaffolding to work on your ceiling. They may apply PVA to the areas where the wall or covings and ceiling meet. Some Taskers may seal the joints, edges and screws of the plasterboard with drywall tape or other similar techniques. Your Tasker may also cover the floors with a plastic sheet and cover any lighting fixtures and electrical sockets. As for the plaster, your Tasker can procure enough of this and other materials for complete coverage. 

They can mix the plaster following the manufacturer’s recommendations and ensure the plaster is of the right volume and consistency. To provide your Tasker with an ample water supply, you may want to hire a separate service to ensure your pipes have enough water pressure

Plaster application

Once the site is prepared, and the plaster is mixed, your Tasker can begin applying the plaster and make sure that enough plaster is applied in consistent amounts throughout. They can also scour or rake the appropriate layer to ensure better adhesion of the final coat.  

If necessary, your Tasker can let each plaster layer dry in-between applications until the job is done. Depending on the type of plaster used, your Tasker may apply a finishing oil upon request. 

Site cleanup

Your Tasker can remove any protective coverings on your floors and disassemble and remove ladders or scaffolding. Some Taskers may do light vacuuming to clean the site. You can hire a separate service to clean the area if there’s a lot of dust and debris. 

Ceiling plaster repair

Upon request, some Taskers can repair damaged ceiling plaster or repair your sagging plaster ceiling. If you have old ceiling plaster, they can do ceiling crack repair, lath and plaster ceiling repair, fibrous plaster ceiling repair, and most other ceiling plaster types and common issues.

I have a strip of plaster running the width of my ceiling with a crack down the middle, it looks like it's where someone has used plaster to cover up a join... The plaster is white and matches the ceiling, it'll need to be scraped out and replaced with new plaster to match. The width of the plastered area is about 15cm, and the length of the ceiling is about 4 meters. Will need to lay down some coverings to prevent the scrapings making a big mess. - Due date: Flexible
