Cracking Plaster? Here’s How To Patch & Repair It

Cracking plaster is never a good sign, no matter if you are a business owner or a homeowner. There’s no doubt that we want our properties to look appealing and attractive, and cracking plaster isn’t either of these things.

So, what can you do about it?

Here at Quality Plasterers, we specialise in a wide range of plastering solutions for properties across Auckland, including interior and exterior plaster repairs. In this blog, we will explore how to patch and repair cracking plaster with ease.

Let’s get started!

DIY Repairs

Fixing cracked plaster is possible by yourself, but you shouldn’t expect flawless results. The best way to fix cracked plaster by yourself is to first carefully remove any loose plaster.

Once loose and other small pieces of plaster and dust are removed, you can then apply the plaster or repair compound with a wet paintbrush.

Let this dry and lightly sand patch. Apply another layer of plaster for wider cracks and repeat.

Hiring Professionals

We recommend turning to professionals, like ourselves, if you need to repair cracked plaster. Although DIY plaster repairs may be more convenient, it’s not guaranteed that the end result will be satisfactory. This can lead to the plaster peeling away and cracking soon after your DIY fix.

However, when you hire professional plasterers, you can expect:

  • High-quality finish that ensures that your plaster walls look new and appealing
  • Cost-effective solution that saves both time and money
  • Experienced plasterers who can get the job done

As you can see, hiring professionals to do the job for you might be the better option for repairing cracking plaster in homes and businesses. While DIY plaster repairs can seem easy, they can take a lot of time, effort, and money if not done correctly.
