What are the Benefits of Polished Plaster?

Along with a wide range of textures and colours, polished plaster has several benefits to offer, including the following.

1. Low Volatile Organic Compounds

Polished plaster is made with all-natural ingredients, unlike other treatments such as paint or traditional plaster. As a result, it’s low in VOCs (volatile organic compounds), so it doesn’t cause health issues. 

Traditional plaster and paint contain harmful VOCs that can cause respiratory issues, strong smells, and more. Symptoms of VOC exposure can include breathing issues, lung irritation, headaches, dizziness, and vision problems. 

On the other hand, polished plaster doesn’t give off harmful volatile organic compounds. In addition, the plaster can be sealed with beeswax, a natural substance made by bees. The wax gives the plaster a beautiful sheen and protection. 

2. Breathable Surface

Polished plaster also offers a breathable surface that allows moisture to evaporate. The plaster doesn’t keep water trapped in the substrate. Moisture can escape easily. This is one of the reasons polished plaster is popular in bathrooms and other wet rooms. 

3. Eco-Friendly & Non-Toxic

Paint and traditional plaster are made with toxic chemicals that can be harmful. On the other hand, polished plaster is made with all-natural, eco-friendly materials.

4. Durable

Polished plaster is also a durable material that is not prone to cracking. It’s one of the most durable natural materials used in homes and businesses today. When cared for correctly, polished plaster can last for decades. 

It’s also available in a wide range of colours and textures, making polished plaster a versatile plaster that offers many benefits. 

5. Waterproof

Polished plaster is also waterproof. The durable, smooth surface is also sealed with a protective wax coating. The coating creates a waterproof seal that needs to be reapplied once in a while. The process of applying wax is easy, and your polished plaster surface will remain waterproof and beautiful for years to come.

6. Prevents Mould & Mildew

Another great benefit of polished plaster is that it also prevents the growth of mould and mildew. Not only is it waterproof, but polished plaster is alkaline, which keeps mould, mildew, and bacteria from growing. 

7. Distinct, Smooth Surface

Polished plaster also offers a unique and distinctive finish to surfaces, such as walls and ceilings. These surfaces are low maintenance and easy to care for. Just wipe with a damp cloth, and you’re done!

Is Polished Plaster Expensive?

People have heard that polished plaster Leeds is expensive. But is that true? The cost depends on the size and type of surface, the chosen colour, and the application or installation.

Before polished plaster can be applied, it’s necessary that the walls have been primed and sanded. The area around it must also be covered and protected before installation. Installation is done by hand with a trowel. Once applied, it’s necessary to wait for the plaster to dry. Then another layer is added. Once the application process is finished, polished plaster must be polished to create that beautiful, lustrous sheen we love.

When you pay for the application or installation of polished plaster, you’re paying for professional skills, knowledge, and experience. However, the plaster is a significant investment, as it lasts for decades when installed correctly. As long as you’re happy with the polished plaster, it’s not necessary to redo the surface in any way. It’s only necessary to reapply the protective wax seal from time to time to keep your polished plaster surfaces stunning for years to come.
