Welcome to the Plasterzone!My name is Robin Raymer, The Plaster Man. Plastering is a fascinating trade that has been around for thousands of years. Unfortunately it has become known as a 'dying art'. Knowledge about it has been difficult to find, misconceptions abound and attempts to work with it have been met with frustration by homeowners and professionals alike. If this trend is not reversed, priceless information about this trade is in danger of being lost. I'm out to change that! My goal is to make this website your number one source of information about plastering.
I was introduced to the plastering trade in New York City in 1982. There were many types of plastering that I learned, but repair work is what I liked the most. Today I run my own plaster repair business in the Peoria, Illinois area. I also train individuals to do plaster repair work for a living. I've put together a growing list of materials, tools and information products that help make plaster repair projects a success. You can also sign up for the monthly Plaster Man Newsletter.
If you have a question, need help on a project, or are interested in receiving training, feel free to contact me. I hope you enjoy the website, and thanks again for visiting the Plasterzone!
