Title: Plastering and internal rendering: Workmanship

Ref Code: GG65/2
Authors: H W Harrison

Abstract1: The acceptability of the wall and ceiling plastered finish can be a significant item in the snagging procedure. Selection of appropriate materials and techniques may not always be thorough, particularly with respect to shrinkage of backing coats and resultant cracking, and detachment of surfaces. Rigorous design procedures and quality control on site are therefore of major importance in reducing, if not eliminating, defects. This Good Building Guide addresses these issues, drawing primarily from the experience of BRE site investigations. Part 1 describes the commonest types of gypsum and cement-based plasters available and the selection of suitable plastering specifications. Part 2 covers good practice, dealing with storage and handling of materials, protection of surrounding construction, preparation of surfaces, control of suction, dubbing out, bonding agents, permissible deviations, check lists and restoration of defective work.
