Internal wall plastering

Postby alfandalma » Sat Jan 30, 2016 8:30 am

Has anyone successfully re-plastered the white wash walls and ceilings by UK method of PVA then finishing plaster, instead of fitting Gypsum plasterboard?

Depends what the whitewash is and whats underneath, it is generally varov rastvor a cement/lime render. you would need to key in any covering by making multiple indents with a chipping hammer or similar.

There are then gauzes and plasters, the best mainly austrian or german ................................and then you need to find a plasterer

gypscarton is not expensive and if you have an older property an opportunity to put some insulation in between, I have done this to preserve the outer appearance of a couple of properties.

The latest I am timber cladding up to 1 m from the floor forming a void behind the boarding for central heating pipes and electric cables,quite pleased with this idea

Kevinb. The link doesn't work.

The walls seem to be a mixture of straw and mud. My reasons for not wanting to timber stud and plasterboard is that. 1/ the bricks and mortar are poor quality so getting a good fixing for the screws can take many attempts to find a good fixing for rawlplugs. This also worries me about fixing gauzes. 2/ the rooms are only 3.7 metre and although this method only reduces the size a little, every little bit counts when it comes to furnishing.

Sounds like adobe. In Bulgaria this was a common building material and is called "kerpitch". I was never quite sure what was the best way to approach maintenance with this material.

There are many old threads on the forum. Here is one

You can find others by inputting

I did consider dob and dab with plasterboard adhesive after washing the surface to remove whitewash. It won't break the bank to try one bag of adhesive. The only place I have seen this for sale is in Practica,
