    Default Re: Plaster and Lath - remove or not to remove?

    +1 on the utilities. Mine had a discounted survey for about $130. They did a blower door test, thermal camera and provided many recommendations. Surprisingly our 1892 house was very tight. I was thinking I should be aiming at drafts through doors and pipes. Turns out our biggest problems are small missed bits of caulking around the window trim that is one the walls.

    I would also look into drywalling over the plaster as I have in my house (ca 1908) I was a HUGE traditionalist, until I bought an old house, and now I see why people either drywall over the plaster or replace it when it starts to really fail. In addition, you will add a bit of insulation with the extra 1/2" of drywall. Just a thought.
