Plaster repair #2

Portfolio Categories: Painting and Plaster Repair.

Old homes are beautiful, full of character, however unsightly cracks can quickly tarnish that feeling of charm.  Here we restored the walls to their original beauty, smooth and free of cracks.  In order to fix the crack correctly, we started by gouging out the cracks with our multitool back down to lath.  This is to ensure the new compound adhears to the lath for maximum bonding.  We then mesh tape the seem and then fill/patch the crack with 3 coats of setting drywall compound.  After sanding everything smooth, we primed with Benjamin Moore Fresh Start followed by two coat of Benjamin Moore Aura.  Good for many more years!
