Caring for a historical building is both a great gift and a great responsibility. Historical buildings can be beautiful visual representations of our past and serve as windows in time.

For millennia, builders have been using plaster for its variability, fire-resistant and sound buffering qualities, and its aesthetic appeal. Until the end of the 19th century, craftsman used lime plaster, which could take up to a year to dry. Thankfully, this type of plaster is extremely durable, and for this reason we still have original plasterwork in even the oldest of historical buildings. However, some degree of deterioration is inevitable over time.
