Can you plaster over brick?

Two Merivale homes almost a stone’s throw from one another had the same versatile plaster finish applied by the Proudfoot Plastering team. The result? Two different looks for two distinctive properties, and two happy owners.

This new three-bedroom family home in Merivale boasts a bold entrance with a dramatic curved wall. Plastering the property added texture to the walls. The trick was to carefully apply the plaster finish over the bricks before painting the walls in Resene half alabaster.

This striking property with its bold black joinery and soaring roof lines was the perfect candidate for the Proudfoot team to apply bagged brick plaster compound. While this uses the same finish as its Merivale neighbour, the effect is all smooth straight lines painted in Resene blanc.

Product notes

Jason and the team at Proudfoot used Specialized Construction Products’ ‘Spanish finish’ with a bagged brick style to achieve both exceptional effects at these well-built Merivale homes. Spanish Finish is a high-quality cement-based plaster compound. The product can be applied over new or old brick, concrete blocks and surfaces. Our skilled Tradesmen can apply this product and it’s crack resistant.
