LATH AND PLASTER REPAIR IN MA AND RI

Have you noticed cracks or lines in your plaster walls or ceilings? It may be a sign that the lath and plaster walls are beginning to fail. That failure can happen over the course of many years, as the wood or wiring begins to separate from the wall or ceiling. In some cases, that may involve nails rusting out, or water damage. Especially with lath and plaster ceilings, it is important that you address the problem quickly. Otherwise, you may need lath and plaster removal. But for all of your lath and plaster repair needs, call Jim Pike Plastering and Painting. We are the local experts on all things plaster.

WHAT IS LATH?

For anyone new to plaster construction, they may not know what this material is used for. The short answer is that it is the backing material for plaster. That may take many forms, from wood slats to wire mesh. In general, it allows the plaster to conform to the wall that you are covering. Depending on the size and scope of your project, we may recommend one type over another. But in many cases, wiring can provide a durable and structurally sound base. In addition, the wired variety is more mold resistant than traditional wood. This allows us to build it in more moist and humid places like basements. And that means less lath and plaster repair throughout the life of the home.
