How to Repair a Large Crack in Plaster
In preparation for redoing out upstairs playroom, I repaired a large crack in our plaster (we’re in an old home).
When Repairing a Crack in Plaster you can essentially thinkof this task as being broken down into two parts.
1. Securing Loose Plaster
2. Finishing the Repair.
For this project, I used a product called *Big Wally’sPlaster Magic* and I finished almost as if I would if I were repairing drywall. (maybe some helpful info for that too.)
I made a video and had great fun working with my 8year old daughter Eva (again). (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SaEqGJHUyr0) You can find out more about the back story by viewing our site.
One Additional Note: when working with older plaster walls lead & even asbestos is of course a possibility. be safe and work cautiously.
Thanks and hope it helps. ~jb
