If you have an old house that has walls of lath and plaster, this is the workshop for you. Learn how to repair walls that are cracked, or where the plaster is pulling away from the lath, by using a bonding adhesive to reattach the plaster. We will learn how to assess problem areas, apply the adhesive, and finish the area for a smooth, even appearance.
Rory Brennan is owner of Big Wally’s Plaster Magic, based in Brattleboro, Vermont. He has been in business for 30 years and has been featured eight times on This Old House, including Ask This Old House, where host Tom Silva demonstrated this repair technique.
