How long can Venetian plaster last?

A very common question regarding Venetian plaster is….how long will it last?

This beautiful and bespoke ancient material has the potential to last for many years, when it has been properly applied and maintained. Painted walls can last between 5-10 years, however they can start to look weary with 2 years, with various marks and scratches starting to show. With regular care and maintenance, Venetian plaster can retain its unique beauty and durability for many decades.

There are key factors that can affect the lifespan of Venetian plaster finishes.

Firstly the application quality is vital, proper application by an experienced professional Venetian plasterer ensures good adhesion and the longevity of the high-quality plaster. It is important to hire a skilled artisan( use our contact form) who understands the techniques involved can make a significant difference in the lifespan of the finish.

Another factor that impacts the longevity of the finish is the substrate condition. The wall or surface that is being decorated has to be smooth, any cracks or movement will impact the lifespan of the Venetian plaster finish. It is important that any underlying problems are addressed and preparation is thorough before applying any plaster.

Once the Venetian plaster has been applied and completed, easy and regular maintenance of the Venetian plaster plays a role in preserving the appearance of the plaster. Gently clean the surface with a mild soap and water solution, avoid using harsh chemicals, abrasive cleaners and avoid excessive moisture of physical damage.
