Plaster Patching Services in SeattleVeneer plaster is an alternative to other varieties of drywall which generally takes approximately one or two coats for application. There are a number of reasons why veneer plaster is chosen among homeowners and contractors, namely due to its application speed, durability, and overall value. However, not everyone knows the facts when it comes to veneer plaster information and suggested applications. A few common myths regarding veneer plaster is as follows:

Myth 1: Veneer Plaster is expensive
Veneer Plaster is extremely long lasting and durable, which means that you won’t have to cover significant costs in the future due to the need for major repairs. The initial investment for Veneer Plaster is usually only a fraction more compared to a drywall finish, and provides a tremendous long term value.

Myth #2: Veneer Plaster application is messy
Veneer plaster is actually a much cleaner application process as opposed to drywall.  It does not produce as much dust, and is a quicker installation procedure when completed professionally.

Myth 3: Veneer Plaster can only be shiny
Veneer plaster can be shiny, yes, but it doesn’t have to be. A professional veneer plaster application company can create a glossy finish or a rustic matte finish. It all depends on how it is used, applied, and what your preferences are for the final result.

The potential designs and finishes with veneer plaster are only limited to one’s creative mind. However, it is recommended for professionals to apply this type of plaster, as the application can be a bit tricky if you aren’t sure of what you’re doing.
