Plaster is commonly found in older homes in the Tacoma region. The reason is that plaster has many benefits, but it is time consuming and more labor intensive than modern drywall installations. However, if you have plaster walls or ceilings in your home, they can last for decades if treated properly. Unfortunately, over time and through sheer bad circumstance plaster can be damaged and need repairs. Sometimes this will mean a complete removal of the plaster, but often only relatively small repairs are required.

We know how to assess the extent of the damage and quickly figure out the best way to repair it. Our customers can count on us to evaluate the least expensive option to reach the desired outcome.

Types of plaster damage
Many of our customers wonder what the basic repair procedure is for different problem areas. Here is a short list of the most common issues we come across in the Tacoma area. All repairs are started with a cleaning and prep of the area.
Cracks in plaster - cracks often happen because the plaster has shifted away from the wood behind it (known as lathe). We make small holes and reattach the plaster to the lathe, fill in the crack and make the wall smooth again.
Bulges in plaster - depending on the severity of the bulge the plaster may be repaired like a crack or the plaster will have to be removed and reapplied as with hole repair.
Holes in plaster - if the lathe behind the plaster is in good condition, then you must first reattach the plaster around the hole to the lathe. Once the existing plaster is solidly reconnected then you can begin applying new plaster to the wall and cover up the hole. When finished the surface will be smooth and ready to paint.
Water Damage - Burst pipes and water infiltration from the outside can cause damage to plaster over time. Damp plaster will soften and weaken, and often cause the surface to crack. Water damage can also lead to the growth of mold and other harmful bacteria and can put the health and safety of you and those who utilize your property at risk. If you recognize water damaged plaster on your property, don't wait for the problem to escalate, have it inspected and repaired by our technicians as soon as possible!
