3 Benefits of Plaster for Your Home, Queens, New York

Plaster has been used for ornamental designs in homes and other buildings for hundreds of years. It still has many applications for modern-day homes, from an interior wall finish to an ornamental plaster molding on a ceiling. Consider the following benefits to decide whether it’s right for your home.

3 Reasons to Use Ornamental Plaster in Your Home

1. Timeless Style

Ornamental plaster has been used for hundreds of years and became extremely popular in the early 1900s. As a result, when people see this as a decorative feature, it adds a timeless elegance to the room that is reminiscent of a time when superior craftsmanship was the priority. It looks much more expensive than it is, and it will remain a classic look. This boosts your property value and can make your home easier to sell in the future. 

2. Complete Customization

You can have your craftsmen make a design that perfectly matches your style, whether you want a Victorian, French, or contemporary look. Their custom casting will create a seamless fit into your existing structure.

3. Durability

It’s a common misconception that plaster is fragile. It is actually an extremely durable material that will strengthen your walls and structure. It absorbs noise, so it will minimize sound traveling through the house. It is also resistant to fire, moisture, and denting.
