If you are in the final stages of a self build or renovation project then it is highly likely that you will be thinking about the different types of plaster on offer. 

Plastering walls is a job that is usually best left to the professionals but that doesn't mean you shouldn't do your research when it comes to which type of plaster will be best for your home. Some will be more suited to certain types of property than others and it really does pay to get it right.
