Plaster Reconstruction

    Sick of those cracked plaster walls & ceilings?
Muddy has the solutions for you! You will be totally amased with the before & after when the Reconstruction is completed. This is Muddy's specialty.

    Most plaster can still be salvaged.  Hairline cracks?  Plaster sagging?  No problem.

    We have a few different ways to save your plaster walls & ceilings without demolishing the old plaster.  We have methods & techniques that will save your old base board & trim from removal. All we ask that the room(s) be completly cleared out.

     Muddy has been ask to disclose his "secret" mud that he uses to a Trade Magazine along with photos and a article of his process. Muddy's secret base coat mix is very hard, durable and non sandable.

    First your room(s) will prepped by masking out your base board & trim.  We will install floor protection.  Next any sagging plaster will be fixed by using plaster washers and a series of drywall screws plus some times glue to secure the old plaster to the lathe.  From years of settlement, vibration and moisture, the plaster may lose the "keys" that hold it to the lathe. If it is too bad we will replace it with a "patch"

    The process:  Depending on the magnitude of the repair is what method Muddy decides to use.
    
   After all of the "loose" issues are addressed we start by shaving highs to make our job easier for us. Next depending on the nature of the cracks we use a non paper non mesh style tape designed for adhesion to plaster surfaces, tape the larger cracks with tight woven fiberglass tapes (FibaFuse or Nu-Wal) with a .040 thick fiberglass tight woven material for interior finishing systems.
