Solid plastering is the traditional method of preparing an internal brick wall for painting. It is also known as render and set.
Firstly, we splash coat the walls with a strong sand and cement mix to create a bond. Secondly, we apply 10 mm of sand and cement mortar, which we screed and float to give a true flat surface. Thereafter, we can apply the final coat which is a mix of hydrated lime and gypsum plaster. This coat is 3 mm thick. Finally, this coat is trowelled while drying to give a hard-polished surface.
The construct of our plaster varies with the location where it is to be applied. In general, it involves the application of premixed sand and cement to preexisting brick, cement, stone or mud brick. We can also adjust the plaster’s texture and colour to your preference after application.
Solid plastering is the perfect way to add a unique feature to the exterior or interior of your home or business.
