New Mexico plaster is coming back major for decorating interior walls
Interior plaster in various forms has been around for centuries. It is durable, does not have volatile chemicals that off gas, and provides elegance and ambience to any interior. Finding a quality interior plastering and finishing company in Albuquerque that knows how to work with this true craftsman finish can be challenging, and that is why you need to contact Stucco Albuquerque Contractors.
Plastering is not just sand and lime on a wall
White washing walls with a kiln lime slake as well as clay plaster has been utilized in New Mexico buildings for centuries. It was a common practice in the First Nations architecture as a means to seal and stabilize walls as well as make them beautiful and durable.
Today’s interior stucco wall might be decorated in a variety of ways
Stucco is used sometimes on interior walls, a mix of Portland cement, sand, lime, and water. Since stucco and plaster tend to not off gas, they are safe and non-toxic. They are also highly durable. Both plaster and stucco can be applied in a variety of colors and patterns, as well as effects in the case of plaster.
Lath and plaster construction is where experience counts
When a stucco contractor that does not regularly do plaster work tries to set up underlayment for interior work, you can easily end up with an unsatisfactory result. Cutting in around windows, doorways, electrical outlets, and other objects can be challenging. Running conduit for utilities ahead of time is critical when using a lath construction due to the layers involved. An experienced interior plaster contractor such as Stucco Albuquerque Contractors can put your mind at ease knowing your utility runs are safe and your plasterboard underlay is solid and secure.
Good interior New Mexico plaster is an art form for the experienced
Interior plaster, whether old fashioned plain plaster with patterns and textures, or a much more exacting form like Venetian (polished or burnished plaster), Marmorino (textured), or tadelakt (water proof), takes skill and talent. Old time plasterers used to make intricate combing and texturing patterns in walls and on ceilings. Today’s resurgence of interior plaster often includes intense colors, pearlescent, opalescent, translucent qualities, layered, or polished effects, all lending themselves to high end decorating.
Plaster is forgiving for the most part and very durable as an interior covering. It has luminosity for both reflecting and absorbing light, making it an up and coming durable choice in today’s design.
Acrylic plaster is now available that increases durability and crack prevention in plastering through increased elasticity. Clay as well as lime and marble based plasters are available also, in varying durability for use in areas ranging from walls to back splashes and even inside bathrooms and shower enclosures.
