Both stucco and plaster have been used in building construction throughout history, and these materials truly stand the test of time. You will see many historical homes with stucco exterior walls or plastered interior walls, where some have been well-maintained and others haven’t. Perhaps you live in a historical home or have plans to restore one that will become your new residence, and you want to preserve the original materials used to build it. Consider Worldgate Plaster & Stucco Company to properly restore your historical home with stucco and plaster, and you can enjoy your timeless treasure for years to come.
Restoring Your Stucco
When you need to restore your old home’s stucco exterior, the success of the restoration will ultimately come down to the expertise of the craftsman you choose to complete this endeavor. This material requires expert craftsmen with adequate training, experience, and certification to properly mix and apply it. Using anyone other than an expert could result in cracks, moisture leaks, and costly repairs later on.
Maintaining Your Restored Stucco
Once your stucco is restored or repaired correctly, maintaining it won’t require too much effort. If the stucco has been restored or has already weathered time well, you can maintain it by re-caulking and sealing around the areas of surface penetration about every 10 years. We also recommend stucco inspections every five years as part of your home’s maintenance.
Restoring Your Plaster
If you are looking at an old house with plaster walls, you may notice some cracks from the foundation settling, chimney movement, or other issues the plaster has encountered over the years. If there are large cracks or sagging plaster, especially in your ceiling, you might have a significant issue that must be addressed immediately. Worldgate Plaster & Stucco Company experts can repair water damage and restore your historical plaster on walls, ceilings, and other plaster features, including decorative and ornamental plaster. We can match an existing texture, cover up the texture, or apply a new texture.
