Plaster for walls: all you need to know

Plaster is more than just a coating: it plays a crucial role in the protection, insulation, aesthetic appearance and performance of your building.

Plaster plays a key role as a protective barrier against the weather conditions, providing successful protection against them. This material prevents the ingress of moisture and protects walls from rain, wind and temperature variations.
Base for Decorative Finish
Plaster supplies a solid base on which decorative finishes such as paint, wallpaper or special coatings can be applied, helping to improve the aesthetics and overall appearance of rooms. This results in smooth, uniform and decorative surfaces with stunning aesthetic results.
Thermal and Acoustic Insulation
In some plaster variants, the attention to thermal and acoustic insulation is very important, making spaces more comfortable. This type of plaster is particularly effective in reducing sound transmission, providing privacy and quietness between indoor and outdoor spaces, as well as between different rooms within the building. This double function of thermal and acoustic insulation is fundamental in creating a more comfortable indoor environment.

There are different types of plaster, each with its own characteristics and applications. The most common types of plaster are:

  • Civil plaster: this is the most common type of plaster. It is composed of cement, sand and water, and can be used to create a variety of finishes.
  • Pre-mixed plaster: this is a type of plaster that is sold ready for use. It is easy to apply, but can be more expensive than traditional plaster.
  • Decorative plaster: is a type of plaster that is used to create a variety of decorative effects. There are different types of decorative plaster, including lime plaster, gypsum plaster and fiberglass plaster.
  • Insulating plaster: this is a type of plaster that is used to improve the thermal and acoustic insulation of a building. Insulating plaster is composed of insulating materials, such as fiberglass or rock wool.

Applying Plaster
Plaster can be applied manually or mechanically. Manual application is the most traditional method, but it is also the most laborious. Mechanical application is quicker and easier, but requires the use of special equipment.

Care and Maintenance
Plaster requires minimal maintenance. The surface of the plaster must be cleaned regularly to remove dirt and dust. In the event of damage, the plaster can be repaired or replaced.
The correct application of plaster represents an investment in increasing the durability of the building structure over time. This targeted process not only helps preserve walls from potential cracking or structural damage, but also ensures the building’s solidity, prolonging its service life and providing a safe and stable environment.

These characteristics make plaster an irreplaceable element in a wide range of building applications, from renovations to new construction projects.
