For centuries people have plastered their homes and important buildings. White lime stucco was used on historical buildings in Greece. Ancient Egyptians used a gypsum plaster on the inside walls of the great pyramids. Today our Christchurch plasterers use a modern synthetic plaster or traditional sand and cement plaster.
Christchurch Plastering Services
Repairing cracks in walls, ceilings and floors has been a major headache for Christchurch homeowners. Local plasterers have been inundated with earthquake related plastering jobs.

Why Hire A Christchurch Plasterer?
New Zealanders love DIY, it’s true. But plastering is one job which should be left to the experts. In fact, a Licensed Building Practitioner is required by law for any plastering jobs needing to be watertight. Plastering usually also requires a perfectly smooth and flat finish. With mistakes easily made and hard to fix, hiring a local Lincoln or Lyttleton plasterer is your best option to achieve a great result.
Cracks in the walls, floors, steps and ceilings of Christchurch homes are incredibly common due to earthquake damage. While many of our plasterers spend a great deal of time on earthquake repairs, they are also hired for other jobs too. Landlords will often use a plasterer to repair the damage caused by tenants moving furniture or using picture hooks. Homeowners are keen for plasterers to repair holes in their plasterboard or even fix and stop new GIB® on their walls.
Plasterers are also skilled in creating multiple finishes on a range of surfaces. Smooth internal plastered walls are often painted and ceilings stippled for visual appeal. External walls and surfaces can have a trowel, stucco, Spanish or sponge finish depending on the type of plastering material used.
