Cost effective plaster repair tips

If your home is aging and there is need to repair dents or cracks on the plaster, then here are some easy tips for temporary and permanent solutions. You can use latex to fill out the gap and smoothen it out for a temporary solution. It smoothly blends in onto the surface and makes the crack look like it’s repaired. But this is a temporary solution.

If you want a permanent solution, here is what you have to do. First of all, scrape out the loose portions and grime from the crack. Smoothen out the edges as much as you can but be gentle so that you don’t increase the crack. A utility knife is best for all such work. Use plaster of Paris to fill the gap or crack. Then use latex to cover it. If you think it’s not enough put a layer of latex again and smooth out the surface, use paintbrush to color the area with the same color as that of the wall. Use shine latex to finish the job.
