Plastering the walls is a job that finishes the work that had occurred previously. As you may already know, it’s a messy affair, meaning that you’ll either need to cover everything up or remove your possessions from the area. Something else you must consider is your plaster’s water source.

With new builds, you can introduce plaster to the plasterboard directly. During preparation, you should countersink the board’s screw heads and tape the joint between the boards. For crisp finishes around exterior corners, most people use metal angle beads. Afterwards, it’s a simple case of administering a layer of plaster. It’s common for workers to set ceilings prior to operating on the walls.
