Want to know a bit more about plastering?
Here's our handy guide!
Gypsum is the most popular plastering product in the UK and is in most types of plaster. It is easy to work with, tough and its durable, and lasts for many years. It is likely the walls in your house are made from gypsum based plaster.
Gypsum is a naturally occurring chalk-like mineral composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate. When the dry powder is mixed with water it hardens and provides a smooth surface over brick, block, or concrete walls. It has excellent thermal insulation properties and is also fire and impact resistant. It is also vapour free and gives off no harmful chemicals as its drying. As there is less heat produced during the reaction stage there are few shrinkage cracks compared to cement plaster.
The smooth finish of gypsum plaster makes it ideal for that clean, sleek, modern look to your room. Walls are perfectly lined and level with a smooth finish, while corners are sharp right angles that make a statement.
Overall, it's a great material for plastering.
We commonly use Flat Venetian Plaster, White Plaster of Paris Dry Mix and Plaster of Paris.
Many properties plastered prior to 1910 will likely have lime plastered walls. It’s one of the most traditional plastering materials in the UK, having been used as far back as the Roman period. It is both extremely durable and long lasting.
One of the main advantages of lime mortar is its ability to breath. Houses built before the twentieth century were built with the idea that draughts from windows and doors would allow air to circulate through the building, removing internal moisture and preventing damp. Lime mortars are vapour permeable thus allowing the house to breathe. When a modern non breathable plaster is used in such a property, damp and mould can quickly become a problem, particularly if combined with modern well-fitting window and door frames. Trapped moisture can cause serious issues for the fabric of the building.
Lime has a very high pH value and therefore also works as a natural fungicide. Mould and fungus cannot grow on good lime plaster and is therefore a healthy option for older houses. It's natural flexibility makes it very resistant to cracking and is ideal for houses with unevenly constructed walls.
Lime is also a very sustainable and eco-friendly product. It is possible to produce it on a small scale so no large and damaging industry is necessary. The gentle properties of lime allow all the other materials involved in the process of making it to be fully reused with no waste.
There are however some disadvantages to this type of plaster. Lime is much harder to work with, and many plasterers don’t have the necessary skills required to work lime plaster effectively. This unfortunately makes it more expensive than Gypsum which is used in modern buildings. In recent years, several companies have developed updated versions of traditional lime plaster. These include the addition of plastic polymers, intended to make it easier to work with. This has caused an increase in the popularity of lime plaster and a subsequent drop in costs.
We use the following lime plasters; Breathaplasta, Hydrated Lime Type S and N, Miracle Morta-Lok and Masons Hydrated Lime.
Stucco (Portland Cement Plaster)
Stucco plaster is a very beautiful product used for both the interior and exterior of buildings. It is composed of aggregates, a binder and water. Applied wet it hardens to a dense solid and can be used as a sculptural and artistic material for internal cornices and mouldings as well as a decorative and protective coating for exterior walls. It is both hard and durable but also very brittle and may crack over time.
Stucco was extremely popular in Britain in the 19th century where it was often applied over exterior brickwork to create the appearance of finely jointed stonework. A good example of this is Carlton House Terrance in London

Clay plasters use clay as a binder for aggregates and fibre. Clay gives a wonderful texture and feel to any wall and is extremely tough and very durable. It is also an ecologically friendly product too as the materials are easily sourced and require no large scale industry. It is an excellent choice for a natural and organic look. Clay is vapour free, and there are no toxic chemicals to worry about. Like Stucco, its best applied by a professional.
High-Tech Plastering Products
The technology of the plastering industry never stands still and in recent years many new and exciting products have come to market. They often combine the best traditional products with the latest scientific advances. The drive is always to create easily applied products and remove all of the disadvantages. This is often achieved by using polymers and acrylics as a part of the formulation.
Plastering Warrington have extensive experience in using these products and are happy to advise on their suitability for your particular product.
