What is Wet Plastering?

For licensing purposes, wet plastering refers to the application of a mixture of lime, cement or gypsum plaster and/or sand and water (or other materials to achieve the desired result) for the covering of walls and ceilings internally. Wet plaster is applied whilst wet/plastic, usually by trowel, and will dry and harden after application.

Wet plastering is often referred to as solid plastering and should not be confused with external rendering.

Wet plaster can be applied in numerious situations including (but not limited to) brickwork, stonework and concrete surfaces or to existing board linings.

Pricing For Plastering

If you need plastering work done in your home then the price will depend on exactly what work needs carried out, the location of the job, the type and structure of your property, and the amount of prep work needed. Whilst plastering a straight wall or ceiling may seem relatively straightforward when carried out by an experienced plasterer in Chester, plastering around dormer windows, alcoves and all the other structural features in a home takes much more time and expertise irrespective of the size of area involved.

Pricing for smaller plastering jobs will of course differ from larger contracts too, as the majority of plasterers work on a day or half day rate as opposed to a price per room and if the work mainly consists of patching as opposed to for instance skimming an entire wall or ceiling the price for the job would again be different, in short, each job is unique and will be priced individually. If you have various small patching jobs that need carrying out then it would be advisable to get them all done at the same time, making the work more attractive for a plastering company to undertake.
