Top Plasterer related questions

For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what plasterer licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

Yes, but only if you have the right tools, skills and experience. Mixing the plaster alone presents some challenges - some types of plaster require an exact ratio of raw materials to achieve the right consistency. An experienced plasterer would know how to apply plaster in the right thickness and work quickly enough to apply a layer of sufficient thickness before it dries. Plastering can be complicated, so it’s best left to experts in most cases.

That depends on the scale and complexity of the job. Plastering several ceilings and walls can take weeks, as most plaster needs to dry for at least a day before applying more layers to finish the job. Plaster repairs can take weeks, depending on the severity of the damage and how complicated it is to replace and repaint the damaged plaster. You can ask your Tasker for a more precise estimate of how long the job will take. 

In some ways, yes, plaster can be better than drywall. Unlike drywall, plaster doesn’t allow mould growth. Plaster walls or drywall that’s plastered over offers better soundproofing and fireproofing. However, in terms of insulation, drywall can be better than some types of plaster, despite plaster being thicker. Plaster is a more labour-intensive material and takes more time to apply, but it is the more durable and stylish finish of the two.

Yes, absolutely! Most Taskers have years of experience fixing cracks in plaster walls, which may develop next to or above windows and doorways. Your Tasker can use tried-and-tested techniques to fix the smallest or the largest of cracks. The process can involve scoring into the crack, clearing it of debris then filling it with joint compound or other filling material. This is left to dry according to the joint compound manufacturer’s instructions then sanded down. 

Sure! You may want to consider plastering your walls and ceilings with this material as it not only prohibits mould growth but is also effective in repelling dust mites. Clay plastering for walls is perfect if you have family members that have asthma or are prone to dust allergies. As clay plaster is entirely natural, it doesn’t need or use any harsh chemicals, so it’s likewise safer for everyone in your home. 

Unless there’s a compelling reason to do so, it’s better if you preserve the plaster, not replace it. The plaster in your home is handmade and adds to its aesthetic value and character. While it may sound reasonable to remove damaged plaster and replace it with drywall, this may not be the best decision as this can significantly reduce your home’s value. Consider hiring experts on Airtasker to restore the plaster and thus preserve the value of your home.

What do plasterer services include?

Your plasterer services include all the activities necessary to apply plaster on your walls and ceilings, apply different types of plaster and repair existing plaster. Your hired plasterer can do the necessary planning and preparation before application. Your Tasker can recommend the most suitable plastering materials and use the appropriate materials, all while following the manufacturer’s recommendations, building codes and industry best practices. The plasterer service can involve different services, such as: 

Ceiling Plastering

Your Tasker can seal each portion between plasterboards with fibre tape or a similar protective material. They can mix the plaster to the right consistency, apply it to the ceiling and ensure complete and consistent coverage. Your Tasker can ensure the application complies with the manufacturer’s instructions, industry best practices and any appropriate regulations. 

Wall Plastering

Your plastering Tasker can prepare the site by placing a protective covering on the floor, furniture, light switches and electrical sockets. You may hire someone to do the wiring before plastering or switch off the power before your Tasker starts work. Your wall plasterer can use the appropriate tools and techniques to plaster your walls, and follow the instructions for drying and reapplying plaster coats until the job is finished. 

Plaster Repair

Your Tasker can inspect the site to assess the extent of damage to the plaster. You may need to hire someone to inspect and repair areas close to or supporting the plaster before your plasterer starts work. You can also ask someone to check if the plaster damage is due to leaky or busted pipes and fix those first. Your plasterer can prepare the appropriate amount of plaster for the repairs and do what is necessary to mimic the existing plaster. After repairs are complete, you may want to hire someone to apply fresh paint to the restored plaster and return it to its former glory.

Plaster Coving

As for plaster coving, your Tasker can inspect and prepare the site before working on the coving. Some Taskers can move or cover the furniture in the room, but note that you may have to hire a separate service to clear the space. Your Tasker can measure and cut the coving to fit, install it onto the ceiling with adhesives and secure the coving as the adhesive sets.

Polished Plaster

To apply polished plaster, your Tasker can prepare the walls by cleaning and smoothing them with a sander. Following the plaster manufacturer’s instructions and industry best practices, they can apply as many coats of polished plaster as needed, sanding or applying glaze between coats. They can apply a water-based sealant to finish the job. 

Lime Plastering

Your Tasker can prepare the site and mix lime plastering material of the right consistency. They can apply the lime plaster in the appropriate number of layers, scoring and smoothing each layer as needed and allowing the layers to dry between applications.
