What is Drywall Plastering?

Plastering is a building process that involves applying wet plaster on walls, ceilings, and other flat surfaces to create smooth finishes. Plasters are made of lime or gypsum mixed with water, sand, and/or gravel aggregate. It can be applied in two layers: the first layer provides a base for paint while the second offers an attractive finished surface.

Benefits Of Drywall Plastering


Plasters are more durable than other finishes because they add much-needed thickness and weight to a surface. This makes them ideal for high traffic areas such as hallways, staircases, recessed alcoves, kitchens, bathrooms, etc.

Greater Flexibility

Unlike paint that is applied over drywall in one coat only, plasters can be built up layer by layer until you achieve the desired finish. You can also create interesting effects by applying different types of material or textured plaster mixes on top of each other.

Low Maintenance Requirement

The durability of this type of finish means low maintenance requirements going forward. It will not chip off easily as regular paints do due to repetitive cleaning tasks required day to day life at home or the office.


With the advent of modern tools and techniques, plasters can be customized to meet your specific needs. You can add faux effects such as wood or stone finishes that offer a more real-life look than paint alone.

Easy Installation and Tidy

The use of drywall and plasters is a popular choice among DIY enthusiasts due to the ease with which they can be installed. You do not need professional equipment or special skills to get started, making them an affordable option if you want something good-looking without breaking the bank.

What Is Drywall Painting?

Drywall painting is another term used for drywall finishing. It’s done using plaster paints which are designed especially for this purpose. They’re usually water-based so they don’t emit harmful fumes while drying and often contain additives like acrylic resins and chalk powder to provide additional texture and depth. We at Drywall Evanston highly recommended our customers use low VOC (volatile organic compound) coatings whenever possible because these products have been specifically engineered not to release toxic gasses into the environment. They’re also formulated to dry faster, which means you can get back to using your room more quickly. As with paint job in general, the key is all about smart preparation. If you don’t skim coat surfaces or workspace that shouldn’t be painted or if you leave dust on top of freshly applied paint, it’s going to look blotchy.

What's the Drywall Plastering and Painting Process?

The Drywall Evanston process begins with cutting the sheet to fit around windows, doors, and light switches. Metropolitan plastering requires a smooth finish as such any imperfections such as dings or holes are filled in before plaster is applied. The first coat of existing plaster is then spread over the surface which has been primed with an oil-based primer. Once dried it’s sanded until smooth and finally painted with two coats of paint – one for color and another for protection against stains and humidity damage.

The Drywall Evanston paint job process begins with spackling holes and dings in drywall before priming all surfaces with an oil-based primer. Once primed, walls are ready for paint which requires two coats as well as following the manufacturer’s instructions on drying times before using any furniture or hanging items from walls, etc… In addition, you should only use products that have been tested for safety around children & pets if they will spend extended amounts of time near freshly painted areas!
