How much does it cost to have a room plastered?
Interior plaster not only provides a fresh and modern appearance, but also contributes to the preservation of the building's value. While the costs may vary, professional plastering often brings long-term savings and advantages.
When constructing a new house or renovating an existing space, the question often arises: Which type of interior plaster is best suited? How much will it cost to have the walls professionally plastered?
These questions are not only significant for builders but also for architects and interior designers who aim for the best possible outcome for their projects. In this article, we will explore the different aspects and provide you with an overview of the expected costs, supported by IBOD Wand & Boden’s expertise and experience.
Types of plaster: More than just a smooth surface
When it comes to designing walls indoors or on facades, there is a much greater variety and complexity of plaster types than one might initially assume
Each type of plaster is not just a means to create a flat surface, but also brings its own aesthetic and functional characteristics. Traditional types of plaster, such as lime plaster which has been used for centuries, not only offer a natural and breathable finish, but also antibacterial properties that contribute to a healthy indoor climate. On the other hand, there are modern types of plaster that have been specially developed to offer a variety of looks and textures, ranging from smooth and matte to rough and rustic
The choice of the right plaster can significantly contribute to defining the character and atmosphere of a room while also ensuring a long-lasting and easy-to-maintain surface.
Different plaster types and their characteristics
Wall plaster serves not only to enhance the visual appeal of a wall, but also to provide protection and preservation. There are numerous types of plaster available, each varying in terms of material, texture, and application scope
- Lime plaster
The classic lime plaster is known for its breathable and moisture-regulating properties, which contribute to a comfortable indoor climate
- Cement plaster
In contrast, cement plaster stands out for its high strength, durability, and resistance to abrasion
- Textured plaster
For enthusiasts of rustic or Mediterranean aesthetics, the scratch plaster is perfect as it provides a rough and textured surface
- Clay plaster
Clay plaster offers not only a natural aesthetic but also health benefits, as it effectively binds pollutants and promotes a balanced indoor climate
- Gypsum plaster
Lastly, there is gypsum plaster, which is highly valued for interior applications due to its ability to create a smooth and refined surface
Each of these types of plaster has its own merits and areas of application, allowing for the perfect solution to be found for any project and personal preference.
The Factors that Influence the Costs
When calculating the costs of plastering a room, several factors come into play. The price is primarily determined by the size and condition of the wall surface to be worked on. For instance, a spacious room with numerous corners and alcoves will require more labor compared to a small, straightforward wall
The choice of plaster type also affects the price: specialized or high-quality materials can be more expensive than standard plasters. The hourly rate of the craftsman, which can vary regionally, as well as any additional services such as applying a primer, incorporating plaster edges, or working on the subfloor, also contribute to the pricing
Take all these aspects into account and, if necessary, obtain multiple quotes to get a comprehensive overview of the expected costs.
