Plaster Repairing Steps:

  2. Equipment and tools need to be selected carefully
  3. Execution includes examination which is visual as well as tapping for hollow sounds. Also, pressure on the sides of the appearing crack to see further damage
  4. Preparation: Debris removal by vacuum
  5. Pre-treatment: Hand-held sprayers are used to facilitate application of conditioner.
  6. Application: Inject Adhesive is inserted to properly fill the void between plaster and substrate using a handheld gun.

Keeping the original material in a proper shape as long as possible is a much better option than changing your house when you see there is professional restoration work needed.
