What Is Solid Plastering?

Solid Plastering, the foundation of our craft, involves a meticulous process of covering walls entirely with plaster, omitting the use of plasterboard.

We begin by applying a rough coat of plaster, known as “browning,” directly onto pre-bonded brick or block walls. This base provides a solid foundation.

We then apply a smooth skim coat, resulting in a flawless, sleek finish that retains the integrity of your brick wall.

The Historical Significance of Solid Plastering

Solid Plastering holds a rich historical significance in the world of construction. It served as the primary plastering technique before the advent of plasterboards.

Many older homes still proudly showcase this enduring form of plastering. Its longevity and effectiveness make it a testament to the durability of traditional craftsmanship.
