Plaster homes look great. Unfortunately, some are incredibly susceptible to damage from moisture. Luckily, in most cases, you won’t need to fully re-clad your home.
Plaster cladding, also known as monolithic cladding will require maintenance to ensure your home remains weathertight. While all homes rely on paint to protect the cladding, your plaster home generally needs a little more maintenance to prevent moisture ingress. Any penetration in the plaster cladding provides a chance for water to enter and access the timber framing. Small cracks around windows, doors, and plumbing penetrations can cause significant damage to your home.
Even if the timber framing is treated, you still need to be aware of potential issues.
If your plaster home needs more than just maintenance, our licensed builders can remove and replace damaged cladding, framing, and improve external flashings to improve the weather tightness of your home.
