    Default Cracked plaster ceilings and walls

    Anyone have any experience using "Nu-Wal", an advertiser in TOH magazine? I have purchased an older home with plaster ceilings and walls and have some "TLC" items to complete; one of which is repairing some cracks in the plaster. Any other input or experiences appreciated... Thanks in advance!

    While I have no direct experience with the Nu Wall system,
    I did go to their website and read what they have to say.

    It sounds good, and they claim that past major repairs have
    not shown any defects after many years. I do think that is
    a tall claim, however. But I have no experience to oppose
    to it.

    This is a fairly expensive way to deal with a few plaster
    cracks, in my view. You can usually get pretty good results
    using drywall finishing materials, if you do it right.
    I have been doing this for paying clients for over 30 years.

    I have a site with lots of free information for the DIY
    homeowner who wants to fix his own plaster and save money.
    Maybe you can find what you need there?
