If you are considering the benefits of plaster over drywall for your new home construction project, you may be having trouble determining which option will be the best choice. Both options offer advantages and disadvantages, depending on your needs. At Whitten’s Drywall, we have provided several considerations for drywall and plaster that may help you determine which option is best for your home.
- Plaster – Plaster is incredibly durable, which means it will last in your home for decades before it needs to be replaced. It also offers a great sound barrier, giving maximum privacy from room to room. However, one thing to consider with plaster as an option for your home is that if it becomes cracked or damaged, it can be difficult to complete repairs. Plaster also takes longer to install, so if you need an affordable option that will complete your home project quickly, plaster may not be the best option.
- Drywall – Drywall is a popular option for many homes because of its affordability and ease of installation. It also provides an effective fireproof barrier, and repairs or replacement options are less work intensive. However, drywall may not hold up against severe events such as natural disasters or other damage in the home, and you may find that you need to repair or replace it more often. Repairs to drywall also require an expert touch to ensure a seamless look from one part of your wall to another.
No matter which option you choose for your home, it is important to hire a professional company for all your plaster and drywall services.
