Structure plaster forms a plastically structured surface that is suitable for facades and interior walls. The structure may consist of a visible aggregate or the pattern may be formed during application by various tools and techniques. Structural plaster tools can vary greatly, depending on the imagination and desire of the home improvement. For example, float, cleaning trowel, wooden pencil, broom or comb and many others. Structural plasters have been used for decoration since the 18th century and have always been a classic for exterior walls and, in recent years, also for interior walls.

Structure plaster for exterior facade

Structural plaster for external façades should, above all, be weatherproof and be resistant to external conditions. The elasticity is also a very important property, otherwise hail damage can be expected. There are plenty of examples of façades with hail damage where points or even holes at the hail joints have formed. Good water vapor diffusion properties allow the room to breathe. In addition to being breathable, the structure plaster should also be free of pollutants, because plasters are usually suitable for both exterior and interior use.

The common types of decorative plaster are:

  • Mineral plaster – consists of sand and binder. Binder may be lime, gypsum or cement. They can be found in different colors, textures and grains. Breathable plaster, which is not recommended for pedestal area.

Especially when children are there, pronounced structures are not recommended, because they like to smear on the wall and even they can hurt themselves. So the plaster structure for the interior should already be considered and fit the family life.
