Plaster Walls or Plasterboard Walls and How to Repair Them

Homes that have plaster walls are susceptible to damage from many different sources. Holes can be easily punched in the plaster walls simply due to hanging pictures and decorations. Children and their toys can also cause damage to the walls. However, these walls are also simple to repair. Plaster repairs can be made by most homeowners using plaster kits and possible a plaster mixer. The following information will help get the process started and provide an overview of how plastering walls works with some of the best plastering tips from the experts. What is Needed There are many different ways to approach plaster repair for plaster walls. Part of deciding how to start is determined by the size of the repair. If the hole or crack is small enough, drywall tape and plaster filler can suffice; however, if the repair is a larger hole there may be the need to purchase a plaster trowel, sand paper and plaster in order to fill the hole and smooth it back in with the wall. The following tips are designed to help with any size crack or hole in plaster walls. Small Holes and Cracks The typical small hole or crack that is made from nails or accidentally hitting the wall with small objects is not difficult to repair. A plaster repair kit will have everything that is needed in one nice package. If this type kit is not used, then it is important to make sure that a roll of drywall paper tape is available, sand paper for smoothing the plaster, plaster to cover the drywall tape and a trowel or float. Place the drywall paper tape over the crack or small hole. This will help keep the crack from expanding or coming open. Do-it-yourselfers will understand the need to treat this tape as if it were plasterboard joint and further secure it with plaster, two coats. Once the plaster has been smoothed with the trowel, it should be allowed to dry. After the plaster dries, use the sand paper to feather the edges down to match the existing plaster wall. If the plaster walls being repaired have several small cracks and nail holes, it is best to put a layer of plaster over the entire wall after repairing the cracks with plaster tape. This helps create a smoother finish and eliminates the need to feather in the repaired areas. Holes and Deeper Dings Plasterboard walls will inevitably have a hole or deep ding at some point; however, like cracks and nail holes, these too can be repaired without having to replace the entire wall. If the hole is deep, it can be filled with plaster and then smoothed out once the hole has been filled to prevent the plasterboard from sinking into the wall. In some instances, there may be the need to fill the hole with some type of material to hold the drywall tape and plaster skim. Once the hole is filled, it is simply a matter of taping over the hole with the drywall tape, plastering over it and smoothing it out just as would be done with small holes. These simple but effective steps will have damaged plasterboard walls looking brand new in no time at all.
