It also serves as a fire protecting layer .Plaster is a layer of cement-sand mortar ,applied over the masonary work ,which also acts as a damp-proof coat over the masonary work . It enhances the appearance of the building .The objectives of plastering can be breifly discussed as follows :
  • To Protect the surfaces from the atmospheric infulences .
  • To cover the defective workmanship in masonary works .
  • To provide a suitable base for colour wash /paint .
Thus ,It is an very important manual influenced activity . Here there are maximum chances of making mistake in executiing the plastering works .
