If you live in an older house, specifically one that was built before 1940, then chances are the original walls and ceiling are made of plaster. If they haven’t been inspected or repaired over the years, then they may not be in the best condition. The good news is that Worldgate Plaster & Stucco Company can repair or replace your plaster to preserve the historical charm of your home while keeping it well-maintained. Read on to find out what we can do for your plaster walls as we discuss common issues with plaster, as well as the plastering services we provide.
Signs That Your Plaster Needs to Be Repaired
You might have a significant issue if you notice large cracks and sagging plaster, especially if it’s in your plaster ceiling. Plaster is heavy, and the weight of sagging increases the risk of collapse over time. The experts at Worldgate will come out and complete a thorough inspection, after which we will provide possible options and recommendations. The first priority is to make sure your family is safe underneath your plaster ceiling.
Causes for Plaster Repair & Replacement
There are many issues that can result in your plaster needing to be repaired or replaced, such as climate and temperature changes, foundation settling, chimney movement, environmental stresses, heavyweight loads over time, as well as heavy traffic, trains, and highway overpasses nearby. If your plaster has sustained damage due to these or any other factors, then let the professionals at Worldgate come and determine whether it can be repaired or needs to be replaced.
