answer to the question of what to do after the plaster wall, depends on how you plan to carry out decoration.There are several options: painting, wallpapering, tiling and creation of drywall constructions.In the first three cases, you need to take care that the finishing material is securely held on the wall, in the latter - the important thing is that the metal profiles for plasterboard were securely locked.

Preparation of the plastered walls to putty

plaster drying period is not less than 1 month, it is recommended not to touch the wall during this time.The extent walls processing can be started quickly after the plaster, depending upon numerous factors such as the temperature and humidity in a room, its ventilation.To speed

up the drying process is recommended to ensure a through flow of air across the room, throwing open the windows and doors.


It is important that the temperature in this case does not fall substantially below the room, or any problems with the moisture evaporation.It also should not be too much more than a room, otherwise it will lead to cracking of the coating.

choosing than to process wall after plaster, should stay on the dirt road.With it you can extend the life of the plastered surface, to achieve improvement of its performance characteristics, including resistance to water.Significant improvement in the adhesion of the product is ensured by the fact that the surface of the primer is impregnated deep enough and strengthen the surface.

Choice putty for walls after plastering

While the primer dries, you need to choose what to putty plaster walls after, as they need to be leveled prior to further finishing.For this purpose, better to buy the starting mixture: it is designed specifically for processing after plastering the walls, and is suitable for removing a significant height differences.

Also, when the primer after the plaster on the wall is dry, you can handle them, or finishing the surface of the universal putty.The latter, as compared with the starting mixture have relatively poorer consumer characteristics, and are usually applied when the plaster layer has no significant flaws.

On base material fillers are divided into three categories:

  • cement - resistant to moisture, but have a greater degree of shrinkage;
  • gypsum - are cheap, do not shrink, malleable during application, but are sensitive to the level of humidity;
  • polymer - are expensive, not shrink resistant to moisture.

Most often, putty applied on the basis of plaster but the scope of use is limited, they are not recommended to be applied in very wet areas where there is contact with water in the bathroom basin.Otherwise, why putty plaster walls after, if, due to high humidity coating on the basis of gypsum quickly will become worthless.

Never apply gypsum plaster in the street because moisture and frost destroy Rodband mixture and the like.

The form filler sale are presented in two categories:

  • ready - already diluted solution that can be used immediately after opening of the container;
  • dry - mix designed for self-catering, but with a much lower cost than the finished mixture.

Thus, the cheapest option - dry plaster powder, but it also has the lowest quality.Gypsum products are perfectly suited to plug the existing cracks in the walls.The most expensive are ready fillings on the basis of polymers, these materials are best to use for the manufacture of a finishing layer.

processing technology plastered walls

often before plastering work raises the question of whether to pull out after the plaster beacons, or they can be left in the walls.It is recommended to make mandatory.The material of construction of lighthouses - metal, and if they leave, with time, they will be amazed by corrosion.This, in turn, will reduce the strength of the plaster layer and, ultimately, lead to its breakage.On the surface of the walls appear cracks and other damage.

After the decision whether to choose a beacon after the plaster, you can proceed to the starting putty surface.Apply the bottom most layer of coarse material.With the starting mixtures for fillings overwritten holes and Stroebe, eliminate large differences in elevation.The thickness of the starting layer may sometimes reach 15-20 mm.

Under the layer of putty can be put masking grid, stretching it across the surface of the treated wall.This will give an opportunity to achieve a more even stacking the material to improve the strength of the starting layer of putty.

When starting the coating dries, proceed to the finishing which is performed with the use of finishing mixtures.Unlike the home, it is applied very thinly, so that it is fully repeating the resulting relief of the walls.In some cases, the question arises whether the need to putty the walls after plaster Rotband to the surface turned out perfectly flat.If the technology to observe the need for applying additional finishing layers disappears, and the walls are obtained so aligned.

Preparing the walls for painting or papering

After the plastering work should wait for the complete drying of the walls, and only then to prepare them for painting or wallpapering.perform both types of decoration technology is the same, the difference is only in the nuances in the selection of finishing materials.The choice of the appropriate method of decoration can spend as much time as dry walls after plaster - about a month.

So, after drying the wall primer for painting primed with a special primer, sometimes - after pre-sanding.If you plan to implement wallpapering, then, instead of the primer, when dry wall can be covered with wallpaper paste.In this case, it is added more water than usual.In addition, the adhesive must be recommended by the manufacturer for use as such, otherwise it is better to put on the walls of a standard mixture for priming.

Errors during priming and plastering work on the walls

defects is leaving metal lighthouse in the plaster.They oxidize over time, which leads to cracking of the coating, even if it is covered thoroughly primer.If due to corrosion lighthouses cracks on the wall after the plaster, then fix it is virtually impossible, because the cause of the problem will be with the help of additional spackling.

also cracking - a sign of haste in the work.Instead of performing the application of plaster in several layers, the coating and make a single layer rough.Under the influence of gravity solution slips to the bottom of the walls, it begins to harden and crack.To avoid this, the plaster walls should be carried out in several stages, can not be immediately applied a huge mass of material.

Getting priming and Shpatlevanie surface, it is necessary to take into account the drying walls after plastering.Premature commencement of work is a violation of the technology, and will destroy the finish after drying.Correct this error without re-repair is impossible.

If the wall is cracked after stucco and even changed its geometry, it shows lack of professionalism of the masters, who carried out plastering, not sure of the correct application of the material.At the same time, if the wall has turned smooth the first time, then it before painting or papering not even need luting.
