Plaster could be considered an art form, and there’s certainly an art and science to the installation process. Whether you need installation or repairs, you should trust only skilled experts with plenty of experience. Worldgate Plaster & Stucco Company has long been considered an expert in plaster work, and we are proud to work with companies, realtors, and individuals who rely on our expertise. Here are four interesting facts to remember if you are considering a home with plaster walls.
1. Plaster Insulates Your Home
There are certainly many benefits of plaster, not the least of which is its insulation. The thickness of the material and the way it’s applied will give you more insulation than drywall, helping your home stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter months.
2. Plaster Is Environmentally Friendly
Plaster is typically more environmentally friendly than drywall and can easily last longer if it is properly maintained. Not only is it more durable, but it has less of an environmental impact. There’s a reason it has stood the test of time.
3. Plaster Requires Skill
Plaster isn’t as common as drywall because it’s more difficult and expensive to install. You don’t want to cut corners with plaster work; instead, trust only a seasoned expert who understands the material. Worldgate Plaster & Stucco Company has provided plaster work for almost 20 years, and we have seen the mistakes of others first-hand.
4. Plaster Can Be Decorative
There is nothing unique about drywall, but plaster can be as ornamental as you desire. It’s the ideal solution to create curves, contours, and other decorative elements for a more custom look in your home that will give it character.
