3 Signs Your Walls Need Replastering

At some point, your walls will need to be replastered. Keeping your plastering up to date is key to enhancing your home’s appearance and ensuring that the house is safe and comfortable to live in. But how can you tell when it’s time for a replastering?

At Quality Plasterers, we have years of experience working with plaster cladding and know exactly what you need to look out for. That’s why we’ve put together this list of the top three signs your walls need to be replastered.

1. Mould and damp

If you’ve spotted mould or dampness spreading over your walls, it’s time to look into having them replastered. Mould is often bad for your health, and damp walls can turn your home’s interior into a cold and uncomfortable place. Not only this, but mould growth and damp patches are unpleasant to look at and have a negative impact on your home’s appearance. If you notice mould, it’s best to arrange a replastering before it has a chance to spread.

2. The house isn’t as warm as it used to be

Have you noticed that your home’s interior isn’t as warm in the winter as it should be? This is a sign that the plaster cladding on your walls is damaged, to the point where the walls are no longer as effective at retaining heat as they once were. While you may not have noticed any obvious signs of wear and tear, a cold house is a key indicator that it’s time to update your plaster cladding. This is particularly important when it comes to making sure your home is as energy efficient as possible, as the better your walls are at insulating your home, the less it will cost you to heat the house during colder months.

3. Visible damage

One tell-tale sign that your walls are due to be replastered is that you’ve noticed cracks in the plaster. Even a small crack is bad news, as it means the plaster has degraded to a point where it is no longer up to the task of insulating your home. Don’t wait for cracks to get worse – arrange to have the walls replastered as soon as possible.
