Plaster Repair in the Bay Area - Proactively Keeping Your Walls Beautiful and Healthy

Plaster, though not used as often these days in modern construction, offers tremendous benefits. It’s solid and strong, resists mold, and deadens sound as well. These are all attributes that any interior space would be happy to have.

As the baby boom of the last century came along, however, a wall and ceiling material that didn’t require so much technical skill to install became necessary. After all, whole neighborhoods were being erected as fast as possible in the 1950s, and there just wasn’t time for the artistry of flawless plastering.

Enter the era of drywall (gypsum board).

If your home has plaster walls, you are fortunate in many ways. You also may have found, however, that it can be a little difficult to find a painting company with the skills and knowledge necessary for plaster repair and care. Our team at MB Jessee is happy to meet that need for our Bay Area clients, delivering old-school craftsmanship in our modern world.

Common Signs That Your Plaster Walls Need Repair

We can’t overemphasize how important proactive plaster repair really is. Ignored or unnoticed symptoms eventually require more extensive correction, making prompt care the most cost-effective and sensible option.

  • Watch for Cracks - Plaster may be solid, but it also is brittle. This means that expansion and contraction within your home, and natural shifts, can cause cracking over time.
  • Monitor Cracks - Hairline cracks are common and acceptable. If you have one already, just watch it closely, or maybe snap a photo if you don’t quite trust your memory. If it spreads or widens, it’s time to call a professional.
  • Water Damage - If your walls experience moisture intrusion, on a large or small scale, it is important to call a painting company that deals with plaster repair. As we mentioned above, catching damage and decay early is key.

Assessment is an essential first step, making it absolutely imperative that you find a qualified, experienced plaster repair expert. Determining whether the repair can be made topically or if there is an underlying structural issue, for example, is a crucial first step that will impact the overall success of your project.
