Job Description
– what do plasterers do?

Plasterers work on a number of different buildings, including new housing developments, offices and houses (renovations or extensions). When working in peoples’ homes, plasterers often work alone, whereas larger-scale projects may require them to work in teams, each covering different sections of a wall, ceiling or build.

Alongside this, plasterers often make use of related techniques such as dry lining, where wall and floor partitions are erected using plasterboard. Demand for all of these skills has been increasing dramatically as new developments are built.

Typical tasks for a plasterer may include:

  • Spreading wet plaster mix onto walls, working from top to bottom
  • Scraping the first coat to make a satisfactory base for the second coat
  • Applying a third, thinner, final coat
  • Maintaining existing plasterwork using specialist hand tools
  • Correcting damaged plasterwork
  • Applying or removing (skimming) artex from ceilings and walls
  • Pebble dashing or applying sand or cement to external walls
