Choosing the right materials to use for the walls in your home can be tricky because there are so many different options to choose from, so it can quickly become overwhelming without the proper knowledge of the different material types. If you are looking for materials that are luxurious, textured, and soft on the eye, then Venetian plaster is a fantastic choice for your home as it has been proven to stand the test of time, and has been used since the days of ancient Greece and Egypt. So if you would like to find out more about this fantastic material, then get in touch with us.
This is about to be a little bit of a science lesson so bear with us so that we can explain what sets Venetian plaster apart from the rest. This type of plaster is comprised of a combination of water and fired limestone. After Venetian plaster is applied to your walls, it is immediately exposed to carbon dioxide which the plaster absorbs. This cycle is a never-ending one with the plaster contiguously absorbing carbon dioxide, which means that as time passes, the Venetian plaster continues to get harder. Amazing isn't it? This is why it offers unrivaled strength. So contact us to find out more about this process.
Something that all homeowners have probably dealt with at one time or another is the occurrence of mold and mildew on their walls. This happens for several reasons, including excess moisture in the walls from leaking pipes. Venetian plaster is lime-based, which means that it is alkaline in nature and offers a high PH level. The benefit of this is that it is almost like a natural fungicide, which means that it is perfect for preventing things like mold and mildew. So if you are looking for preventative measures from the start, then Venetian plaster is perfect for your home.
We have already discussed the fact that Venetian plaster is among the strongest materials that you can use in your home. This is a fantastic benefit, especially when you match that with the fact that it is very easy to clean and keep maintained. The cleaning process is as simple as you can find, because you simply wipe the walls down with a damp cloth, and just like that, your plaster has the same beautiful appeal that it has always had. So if low-maintenance is something that appeals to you, then reach out to us to discuss installing Venetian plaster in your home.
The fact that Venetian plaster has been used since the days of ancient civilizations really shows just how timeless it really is. That being said, there are so many different textures that can be achieved with it and when you consider that the color is premixed into it, then there isn't even a need for painting, or repainting, as is needed with traditional painted walls over time. So if you are looking for a timeless material to make your home stand apart from the rest, then Venetian plaster will offer you that timeless elegance that no other material can. So reach out to us to discuss options, and then we can start transforming your home into a masterpiece.
