Trusted Plastering Specialists

Plasterer Melbourne is a leading company that provides lathing and plastering services in the Melbourne area. Our versatile plaster men provide metal lath and three-coat plaster system application to walls and ceilings following design specifications. Lathing and plastering services involve applying a metal mesh lath to an exterior wall, partitions or ceilings. The lath is covered by three coats of plaster materials that are either gypsum or cementitious.

The lath acts as a support for the plaster. It also provides nailing surfaces that are necessary to complete the gypsum board, veneer base, or other surfacing materials. Metal lath can be applied directly to structural elements such as beams, rafters or wales. As part of our lathing and plastering services, we use plaster material containing fibres that serve as reinforcement elements to make sure your building project is sturdy enough.

We are meticulous about quality, using our extensive experience with traditional masonry techniques to ensure that all of our work exceeds industry standards. We specialize in working on stucco finish applications as well as drywall finishing applications for commercial building contractors throughout Melbourne. We meet all design specifications regarding lathing and plastering installations, making us your best choice when you need experienced craftsmen to complete the job according to plan.

Why Does Plaster Need More Attention?

Older homes require ceiling and wall finishes to offer breathability. Wattle and daub walls rely on moisture evaporating through them to prevent condensation, as do old stone and brick structures.

When you have a plaster issue that requires repair, the goal should be to restore the historic structure. However, if you use modern techniques that emphasize energy efficiency, you can inadvertently seal in moisture, leading to decay and damage.

Plasterer Melbourne will help you determine your home's plaster type to ensure an accurate repair occurs.

Older homes replastered with modern materials or damp walls might benefit by having the work replaced with lime plaster.

Our team can inspect, recommend, and repair these issues and more so that your home continues to provide stunning results.

How Our Plastering Services Work

Plaster repair, installation, and maintenance can be complex for those who are unfamiliar with the necessary materials and tools. Expert paint and plastering experts like those you’ll hire at Plasterer Melbourne know all of the tricks of the trade and have a streamlined process that makes even those most challenging plaster projects a breeze.

Safety and Setup

As with all painting, repair, and refinishing projects, our experts at Plasterer Melbourne begin by safeguarding themselves and other objects in the room from damage. Painter’s tape, drop cloths, and other materials are used for this step. During this initial prep stage, technicians may also clean walls and set up plaster, tools, and paint to make the project flow smoothly.

Damaged Plaster Removal

The first and most critical step in plaster repair is removing damaged or aged plaster. Technicians target areas that have cracked, crumbled, or received water damage.

Apply Plaster Repair Layers

For larger holes created in plaster walls and other surfaces, our technicians use two layers of plaster to restore integrity to the structure. Most estimates for painting and plastering services include the material cost and wait time necessary for two layers of plaster to set and dry.

Sanding and Painting

After our technicians apply and cure all layers of plaster, the next step involves sanding the surface of the plaster down. This process helps create even surfaces that are ready to receive primer and paint coats.

As part of our painting and wall plastering services, our technicians provide expert advice and primer and paint choices, helping you achieve a fantastic finished product that lasts for years.

Depending on your plaster needs or the types of damage that need repairing, other steps may be necessary to achieve a professional finished product. To learn more about the plaster repair and installation process, reach out to our Melbourne plastering service today.

Smoothing, Patching, and Surface Prep

If necessary, technicians may next sand edges or cracks in the plaster to create smooth surfaces. During this stage, our experts will apply thin layers of plaster to cracks with a putty knife.

For holes created by damaged plaster, they’ll repair any damage to the underlying lath, if necessary, and apply a latex bonding agent to the entire area.


So how do you know if a plasterer is the right professional for you? A plasterer will be able to provide a smooth surface, whether on walls, ceilings or partitions, for either functional or decorative purposes. A plasterer will also be able to perform the following tasks:

  • Apply coats of plaster: Plastering specialists will apply plaster to interior walls and partitions, using hand tools, portable power tools or a combination of the two.
  • Create decorative textures: Plasterers can create textures and decorative patterns for an ornate finish.
  • Clean and prepare surfaces: Plastering specialists will prepare surfaces for plastering by thoroughly cleaning them and fixing any cracks or chips found. They will also create the mortar mix, ready for application.

The time is takes to plaster a room depends on what’s required, and on the size of the room. We can give you an estimated completion time when we come and look at the job and provide a quote.

Generally, it will take around 3-5 days for plastering to dry out however there are a few factors that will affect the drying time of your plaster. The thickness of the plastering will affect the time it takes for the plaster to dry out. If there are any areas that require additional work, for example, if there is a void, a large crack, or a gap which requires filling then a base coat or bonding plaster may be required before skimming. This means that certain areas may be thicker than others and therefore require more time for the plaster to thoroughly dry out. If there has been significant filling it could take as long as two weeks for the plaster to be thoroughly dry and ready for painting and decorating. Another factor that will affect the drying time for your plastering work is the room temperature and ventilation. It can be tempting to turn the heating right up to speed up the drying process but this is not recommended. Excessive heat will cause the plaster to dry too quickly which may result in cracking or hazing. The best condition for allowing your newly plastered walls/ceiling to dry is to provide some ventilation by opening a couple of windows slightly. You can put the heating on, however, we recommend you keep this at a low temperature for a number of days after the plastering is completed. This will help with the drying process whilst avoiding the plaster cracking.

The most common types of plaster are a composition of gypsum, lime or cement with water and sand. The plaster is typically manufactured as a dry powder and then worked to form a stiff paste by mixing in water before application.

Plastering is most definitely a skill, so you should understand that before you begin. Any skill can be learnt, but it's going to take you a bit of time and a bit of practise. ... With a bit of time, learning and careful work, you can totally tackle plastering through DIY! You've just got to put the effort in to learn how.
