How to choose the right plastering company for your building?

When it comes to choosing the right plastering service for a building, the confusion is real. Whether you are looking for plastering buildings for use as hospitals, educational institutions, government operations, apartments, villas, and so on, understanding the basics of plastering helps. Firstly, it is important to decide on the choice of material you would want to use for plastering the building. Then, you should list the plastering service providers in the area. Finally, you shall work out to find a company that offers competitive cost, and holds expertise in plastering. 

The blog is an attempt to help builders, construction companies, and other stakeholders involved in the construction to choose the right plastering type and an appropriate plastering company for your building. 

What are the types of plaster?

Lime plaster

Cement plaster

Gypsum plaster

Stucco plaster

Lime Plaster

Lime Plasters remain one of the oldest kinds of plaster in use across the world. Lime plaster is obtained by mixing slaked lime and sand in the ratio of either 1:2 or 1:3. Water is then added to the plaster to obtain a fine mix. 

Cement Plaster

Cement plaster is prepared by mixing portland cement, sand, and water. The cement and sand ratio in the mixture varies from 3:1 to 8:1. The ratio is varied depending on the purpose and kind of plaster application. A commonly observed problem with cement plaster is that it requires water curing for 15-21 days from the date of application. The resulting surface is also not very smooth and often it is cracked. So, PoP punning is required to smoothen the plaster surface and prepare it for painting. 

Beyond all these direct impacts, the cement industry is a major contributor to greenhouse gas emissions at the global level. 

Did you know that

The cement industry accounts for more than 8% of carbon dioxide emissions across the world.

So, builders and construction companies are increasingly preferring to use alternative plasters like gypsum plasters for their buildings. 

Gypsum Plaster

Gypsum plaster has evolved to be a sustainable alternative to cement plasters and other kinds of plasters available in the market. Gypsum is a naturally occurring substance and is found in lake and sea beds. Gypsum is a miraculous material and has several advantages over cement plasters when it comes to savings in cost, time, and resources consumed. They produce a smooth finish and so do not require a PoP application before painting. Gypsum plasters are fire resistant, have lower thermal conductivity, and have low plastering weight. So, gypsum plasters are increasingly preferred for use in all high-rise buildings, educational institutions, hospitals, historic buildings, etc. where the wear and tear are relatively higher. 

Stucco Plaster

Stucco plasters are used to plaster exterior walls. Stucco plasters produce a decorative effect and finish on the wall. It is done in two methods- 1 coat method and 3 coat method. 

Because of the miraculous advantages that gypsum plasters hold when compared to other types of plastering materials, gypsum plasters are increasingly preferred for use in construction. 

The following section elaborates on how one should choose the right gypsum plastering service provider for a building project.
