Cement Plaster and Marble Plaster

Cement Plastering

Cement plastering is technique used in masonry work for coating surfaces. It has been used for a long time, however in recent years we are observing a comeback, particularly in the sector ofrenovations. Cement plasters add a particular elegance to the applied area, thus it is often chosen for both practical and aesthetic reasons. It is composed of materials that are environmentally friendly, with their main ingredient being natural stone or volcanic rock. This creates a special mixture that makes cement plasters a higher quality option than industrial floors. This special composition of cement plasters is what made them famous in the islands of Cyclades and elsewhere.

Cement plastering can be applied to a wide variety of surfaces, without any particular difficulties. The most frequent use cases are walls and floors. The technique can be easily applied on surfaces both indoors and outdoors. Additionally, it is suitable for business and residential spaces alike. Some examples of the most common surfaces where cement plastering is applied are floors, walls, plasterboards, mosaics, bathrooms, swimming pools, fireplaces, tiles, on marble, showers, kitchen worktops, sinks, built stairs and many more. On top of this, the surface is seamless.

Another feature of cement plastering is that it is a thin coating. This property is particularly important in renovations, because it means that the technique can be used on any material on walls and floors. It should also be noted that special varnishes are added to a cement plastered surface after its application. This provides protection from moisture, scratches and stains. As a result, cement plasters retain their natural appearance unaltered and thus are resistant to wear through time, while simultaneously contributing to the underfloor heating. As a result, there is a natural reistance to the fluctuations of temperature making cement plastering a reliable option for the coating of any surface.

Marble Plastering

The term "marble plasters" makes an indirect reference to cement plasters. Despite the fact that these two techniques are clearly related, there are significant differences in appearance, texture and composition. In marble plasters one can particularly notice the lack of fluctuations, thus resulting in a finer surface. Additionally, with marble plasters one gets a great range of marble grain diameter. This, combined with the presence of limestone, results in a higher durability of the coating and gives the surface the ability to "breathe", something that is not present in cement plastering.

The use of the technique of marble plastering, just like cement plastering, requires specialized experience, high technical skills and deep knowledge. There is always the risk of complications that may easily occur unless there is a specialized team working patiently and carefully. We at Redeko, pride ourselves in working hard with all our resources and skills, always achieving the best results in marble plastering, both visually and functionally.
