Today’s qualified plasterers are active and available to make a difference with the many challenges construction projects bring forth. This article focuses on a church in Springfield which had been damaged by water and neglect. The plaster ceiling had been covered with glue on tile.
The before pictures do not show the extent of the damage to the plaster. After the scaffold was built, it was apparent that more plaster had to be removed and replaced. All the upper tile was removed and the entire existing ceiling was skim coated to give a fine new plaster finish.
If you wish to know how plastering can help you with your design, feel free to call Ken Oren.
You can see the badly damaged plaster at hole. The other plaster had glue from the stick-on tile.
The configuration of the ceiling made the design of the scaffold doubly important.
Several stainglass windows surround the sanctuary.
To accommodate the work a “dance floor” was built with a rolling scaffold placed on top.
The Dayton Bureau for Lath and Plaster is funded by contractors through the Dayton area Plasterer’s Union. It seeks to promote quality work through the use of trained craftsmen. If you have project details or specifications, Ken Oren is available for questions. There is no charge to architects when the project in question is offered to local bidders. The Bureau has purchased ASTM Section C and AutoCAD LT for reference and convenience in addressing design issues.
