The 4 Main Types Of Plastering And How To Choose The Right One

A building whether domestic or an official is designed and structured based on a lot of factors. Budget is one of the most important determinants, so is the structural and spacious requirement. Whether a building is domestic or official the factors differ immensely. The interiors as well as the exteriors are to be designed with respect to the client prerequisites. 

Plastering of walls and ceilings is done to do away with the coarse exterior of the structure. This technique is employed to not only give a smooth structure to the building but also demarcate the spaces within the building. Plastering is an essential part of the aesthetics of a structure too. It is all up to client requirements that would help in finalising the plastering technique. Here is a list of some plastering techniques based on appearance and techniques of application.


The smooth coat finish cement plaster is the most widely used plastering technique for both interior and exterior surfaces of a building. This is ideal for setting a base for wallpapers or painting as far as interior building surfaces are concerned. The smooth base ensures the long lasting appearance of paints and other additions on the wall. Plasterers in Whitstable have the skill to do all forms of plastering.

A smooth coat is also ideal for spaces that would not want dust to accumulate on them. This is true for big size structures and exterior of buildings that are placed in high dust zones.


This type of plastering requires cement and crushed gravel. This mixture or mortar is thrown at a pre-plastered surface and is smoothened out after to make patterns and design. The roughcast plastering is useful for exterior walls. This technique can also be used for micro designing in interior spaces to give an exclusive effect. The contents and process of applying varies from technique to technique. This is a water resistant as well as crack resistant technique of plastering. Hence if you want to choose a long lasting option of plastering rough cast is your perfect choice. 

Plasterer in Maidstone are experts at installing water resistant plasters.


Pebble plastering is the technique of using multicoloured smooth surfaced pebbles of optimum, construction specific sizes. These are present in dark blue, dark green and grey colours. A thick layer of cement is required for the pebbles to stick on the surface and are then pressed onto the walls with the help of wooden floats. Pebble plastering is an excellent option for spaces where you want to create a natural vibe. Places like indoor fountains and swimming pools look super beautiful with pebble plastering.


Textured finish plaster is a unique form of plaster in which decorative and attractive designs are curated on cements and other surfaces. This is an exquisite technique that helps in making a space more attractive. It is a new form of plastering that has been introduced to cater to better and diverse tastes. It is very easy to install and can make a space look quite extravagant.

Choosing a pattern of plastering depends on clients but the implementation of any plastering always depends on the competence of the plasterer. Hence it is imperative that as a potential client that you choose people who are competent enough and have a good reputation.
