Services For Historic Structures And Interiors
There are two basic classes of plaster work, flat and ornamental. Our craftsmen can provide restoration, repair and fabrication services for both types. We are experienced in all phases of plastering projects, from condition evaluation and documentation to pricing and execution. We can determine the soundness of the plaster base and, if necessary, reproduce any damaged or missing decorative elements.
Flat plaster consists primarily of walls and ceilings, usually applied over wood lath, metal mesh, "blue board" or unit masonry such as brick or terra cotta tile. These layers can be smooth, textured or struck to imitate other materials such as stone. Flat plaster is often the base or ground to which ornamental plaster is applied.

Ornamental plaster includes moldings, columns, capitols, and many other decorative elements. Some of our suppliers are still producing the patterns they sold in the early 20th century, virtually any item can be created in our shop.
