Venetian plaster is a professional finishing technique that is used on the inner walls of your home to produce a high-quality finish that looks like marble. It is made from fired limestone and marble dust mixed with water into a putty. It is also called venetian stucco and at George Tudor Venetian Plaster and Painting Service we can transform the walls of your home using venetian plaster or stucco. It comes in a variety of colors and can be matched with any decor. It has many benefits for decorating the interior walls in your home.
Venetian Plaster Absorbs CO2 When Applied to Walls
The plaster is made from limestone and, when applied to walls, will absorb CO2 from the air. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas that in small quantities is harmless to humans. When it is absorbed in large quantities, it can be harmful to your health. Once the plaster absorbs the CO2, it turns back to limestone. The plaster becomes harder and more durable and absorbs CO2, making your home environment safer for family and friends and the walls more durable.
Reduces Humidity and Prevents Mold and Mildew
The venetian plaster is porous and allows moisture to escape and keep the rooms in the house cooler. It can be applied to the walls in the bathroom, and it keeps that room cooler too. Moisture is released and not trapped in the wall, resulting in a cooler room. It has a high ph. level that prevents mold and mildew from forming on the wall. This is another reason it is good for your health and the environment. It is a reliable source of insulation for the walls and has anti-flammable properties.
Low Maintenance and Odor Free
Venetian plaster is made from natural ingredients and does not have a strong odor like some products. You do not have to wait hours for it to dry because of the strong scent made by the plaster. It is easy to clean. You only have to wipe it with a damp cloth to keep it clean.
Soak a cloth in warm water and ring out, add a few drops, mild soap and clean the wall with a gentle circular motion. Often, a protective sealer is used on venetian plaster to protect the surface.
Offers A Variety of Colors and Textures
Venetian plaster comes in a variety of finishes: smooth and polished, a matte finish, and a natural stone appearance. It can be tinted many different colors, so you have a wide variety of colors to choose from. It can be applied to almost any type of surface that is flat from walls to ceilings. It does not crack and lasts many years.
