Repairs and Maintenance


One of the unique aspects of American Clay plasters is the repairability of the final wall surface. Because our plasters do not have a chemical set (like other lime, cement, or gypsum based plasters), the plaster can be rehydrated and repaired with a few simple steps. There is also no waste; excess plaster from the original application can and should be dried out for future repair use. This helps to ensure the color and texture of the repair matches the original plaster finish.

Below you can find video tutorials on common repairs and maintenance issues you may encounter with your American Clay walls.

The procedures outlined in the repair tutorials may appear like many steps, but the process actually goes very quickly.
