How Often Should You Replaster Walls?

Don’t Guess – Know When Your Walls Need a Refresh

How often should you replaster walls? The truth is there’s no magic number. Plaster doesn’t come with an expiration date. You might hear “15-20 years” thrown around as a lifespan, but that’s a very broad estimate. In reality, how long your plaster lasts will depend on a number of factors:

  • The original quality of the plastering job – A poorly done job won’t last as long as expert work.
  • The type of plaster used – Some plaster is more durable than others.
  • How much wear and tear your walls have seen – Children, pets, and everyday life all take their toll.
  • Environmental factors – Moisture, temperature changes, and even settling foundations can affect plaster.
