What's it like to be a Plasterer?
Plasterers paste layers of plaster onto floors, ceilings and walls. When it’s applied to a building, plaster serves dual functions of structural reinforcement and the implementation of a design aesthetic.
Plasterers work on both internal and external finishes as part of the building construction process, renovations or historical restoration work. As a Plasterer, you’ll have exceptional attention to detail and knowledge of a broad range of finishes and styles.
