The oldest known evidence for the plastering of stone buildings comes from the area of the so-called Fertile Crescent and dates back to about 12000 B.C. Five- to six-layer plasters have also been preserved from Pompeii. Today, plastering is still one of the most commonly used methods to decorate and protect house facades and interior walls.
Plaster not only protects the outer building envelope from the weather. It also regulates the indoor climate and insulates the facade against heat loss. Some of the plaster disappears under paint coats and tiles, but it can also be used to embellish walls and ceilings with specially designed surfaces. However, it cannot be applied to any substrate and requires different processing techniques depending on its type and composition.
Basically, it is necessary to distinguish between the appropriate plastering for the exterior and interior. For exterior walls, plaster serves primarily as protection against a wide variety of weather conditions and as insulation. However, it also takes on design tasks by allowing individual aesthetics of building facades.
Clay plaster is well suited for dry rooms, because it optimizes heat and sound insulation, reduces pollutants and fine dust, and allows excellent individual processing and design.
It is best to arrange a free personal consultation appointment with us, so that we can talk together about your wishes and ideas. Plastering not only allows for a variety of wall design options, but also requires different materials and different processing techniques depending on the substrate, spatial conditions and design requirements.
