What you should consider when processing renovation plaster

Restoration plaster is a very practical aid for better repairing damaged and damp walls caused by salt, as it has moisture-regulating properties and is very easy to process. Read here what you should consider when processing.

Use renovation plaster for damp masonry

Moist masonry and salt damage are very common phenomena that can cause high consequential damage and high costs. Professionals are therefore very happy to use renovation plaster for the interior and also on exterior walls to rehabilitate already damaged masonry. It can be applied to bricks made of bricks or concrete, as well as many other types of substrates. However, it should not be forgotten that the renovation plaster is not a panacea and always the cause must be eliminated for damp walls.

How restoration plaster has a moisture-regulating effect

Sanierputz is an open-pore material that ensures that the masonry moisture already evaporates with salts contained in the plaster layer, at least according to the manufacturer. The wall can thereby dry without causing so-called salt efflorescence. Thus, this means a very practical solution, especially where the house wall can not be treated easily from the outside. He is also paintable.

What you should pay attention to when processing renovation plaster

There are a few things to keep in mind during processing, so that the restoration plaster also has the desired effect and effectively protects the walls from moisture and resulting damage. This includes the following:

  • It is very important to completely remove the old plaster before applying restoration plaster.
  • Do not forget to scrape the joints on the masonry several centimeters deep before applying the new material.
  • The wall should be pre-wetted to improve adhesion to the new material.

Coat renovation plaster

If you follow some instructions, paintings are also possible. However, the paints should be highly breathable and also water-repellent outdoors. Use only special silicate paints or silicone resin paints. Coatings of paints, emulsion paints or acrylate paints are not suitable. In addition, you should not apply any final coatings such as tiles, gypsum plasterboard, wood paneling, styrofoam or synthetic resin products on the restoration plaster.
