Plastering Contractors

Plastering contractors work both inside and outside a home or commercial building. Their job can involve installing plaster EIFS, installing manufactured stonewalls both outside and inside the home, plastering decorative trim like cornices or restoration work on plastering walls, finishes or stonework.

Why Do I Need a Plaster Contractor for EIFS Installation?

EIFS, which stands for Exterior Insulation Finish System, is similar to stucco in looks but is formed from synthetic insulation foam and coatings. In this growing field, the system has to be installed by a professional. Therefore, you cannot install it yourself. In addition, when choosing a plastering contractor, look for a professional that has completed the necessary extra training.

What Does a Plaster Contractor Do?

Plastering contractors work with gypsum and learn how to use different tools to create different finishes like swirls, stipples or sand finishes. The tools used are generally purchased by the plastering contractor and carried from job site to job site.

After meeting with you, the plaster contractor will determine how the plaster needs to be installed. He or she will then gather all of the necessary materials in order to start plastering your walls or other areas in your home.

How Do I Select a Plastering Contractor?

Usually, plastering contractors learn the trade through hands-on training provided through an apprenticeship. They also may be members of the Operative Plasterers and Cement Masons International Association, but this does not necessarily mean the contractor is properly trained to complete your job. At the same time, it does indicate that the plaster contractor has completed a certain level of experience or training.

Since most states do not require any type of special licensing in order to become a plastering contractor, you will need to research the contractor’s experience and training on your own. The more experience the contractor has, the more likely you will enjoy good results.
