Plaster Repair in St. Paul, MN
Serving the Minneapolis and Twin City Metro Areas
People have used plaster for millennia, although the materials and techniques improved over time. The common materials for American buildings in the twentieth century were gypsum plaster walls attached to thin wooden slats called laths.
Up until the 1960s, most American homes had plaster inner walls. After that, drywall became the favored way to finish interior walls. Prefabricated drywall allows for quicker construction and reduced costs, so it’s unsurprising that it became the popular choice.

But plenty of homes still have beautifully plastered walls. Plaster creates a nice finish, and the lath and plaster combination allows for more flexibility than drywall. Plastered walls are mold resistant, fire resistant, and sound dampening.
