Description

This book will serve as an excellent text for NVQ plastering students, whilst its encyclopaedic structure enables the experienced plasterer to select information quickly on finer points when faced with an unfamiliar task. Architects and surveyors will welcome it as a guide to the scope of the craft and its materials, and as a reference for conservation work.


It provides a thorough introduction to the techniques of modern plastering and a comprehensive treatment of present-day fibrous plasterwork.


Also included are full technical details of solid work, and thorough coverage of obsolete practices for the purpose of conservation work. It features working drawings in isometric projection to present a three dimensional picture of specific jobs.


The Fourth Edition has been updated to take account of new products and techniques, in particular machine plastering, and changes in health and safety requirements. The sections on Floorlaying, Plasterboard and Internal Plastering have been totally rewritten and all subjects have been checked against Standards. Legislation and regulations have been brought up to date.
