Here's our handy guide!
Gypsum is the most widely-used plastering material in the country and is a component in most types of plaster. It is easy to work with, tough and hard-wearing, and it lasts for many years. It is likely the walls in your house are made from a gypsum based plaster.
Gypsum itself is a naturally occurring chalk-like mineral composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate. When gypsum dry powder is mixed with water it hardens and provides a smooth surface that covers brick, block, or concrete walls. It has excellent thermal insulation properties and is also fire and impact resistant. It is also vapour free and so gives off no harmful chemicals as it dries. Because there is less heat produced during the reaction stage with water, there are few shrinkage cracks in the finished product compared to cement plaster.
The smooth finish of gypsum plaster makes it ideal for a clean, sharp, modern look to a room. Walls are perfectly lined and level with a smooth finish, while corners are sharp right angles that make a sleek bold statement.
We commonly use Flat Venetian Plaster, White Plaster of Paris Dry Mix and Plaster of Paris.
Many properties that were plastered before the 20th century will probably have lime plastered walls. It is a very traditional plastering material in the UK, and was first used as far back as the Roman period. It is both extremely hard-wearing and long lasting.
A particularly useful advantage of lime plaster is its ability to let the structure underneath breath. Before the advent of double-glazed windows and fitted uPVC doors, houses were built with the idea that draughts from entrances and exits would allow air to circulate throughout the building. This airflow helped to remove internal moisture and prevented damp and mould from accumulating. Lime mortars are vapour permeable thus allowing air to move through the structure of the building and out through the walls. When a modern non breathable plaster is used in such a property, damp and mould can quickly become a problem, especially if combined with modern windows and doors. Trapped moisture can cause serious issues for the fabric of the building and cost a lot of money to put right.
Lime also has a very high pH value and this works as a natural fungicide. Mould and fungus cannot grow on good lime plaster and it is therefore a healthy option for many older houses. The natural flexibility of lime plaster makes it very resistant to cracking and is ideal for those houses with unevenly constructed walls.
Lime plaster is also a very sustainable and eco-friendly product. It is possible to produce it on a small scale and so large and damaging industry is unnecessary. 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 can be much more difficult to work with, and many plasterers don’t have the necessary skills required to work it effectively. This unfortunately makes it more expensive than Gypsum which is used in most modern buildings. However, in recent years several companies have developed updated versions of traditional lime plaster with 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 is a decorative plaster used in both the interior and exterior of buildings. It is composed of aggregates, a binder and water and when applied wet it hardens to a dense solid. This means it can be used as a sculptural and artistic material for things like 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 occasionally crack over a long period of 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 the binding material for aggregates and fibre. Clay gives a unique and wonderful feel to a wall and is extremely tough and very durable. It is also an ecologically friendly product because the materials are easily sourced and require no large scale industry to produce. It is an excellent choice for a natural and organic look to a room. Clay is vapour free, and so there are no toxic chemicals to worry about. Like Stucco, its best applied by a skilled professional.
High-Tech Plastering Products
The technology of the plastering industry has made many advances in recent years creating new and exciting products for sale. They often combine the best traditional materials with the latest scientific advances to produce products that can be easily applied, and look amazing. This is often achieved by using polymers and acrylics as a part of the formulation.
