"" PETE THE PLUMBER Your Assurance of The Finest ELECTRICAL REPAIR SERVICE CHARLEY'S ELECTRIC SHOP 112 South 5th Phone 2993 New Plaster Bases Resist Fire, Cracks Applying plaster to walls and ceilings over metal lath or perforated rock lath instead of wood lath creates a surface that has greater lire resistance and less danger of cracking. One jif the advantages of plastered interiors is that any unevenness in wall or ceiling construction can be concealed as the plaster is applied Another is that if the stud and joist spaces nre filled with mineral wool insulation, fire will be held back for an hour or more. Plaster can be redecorated repeat- edy. anri unless permitted to get wet, it will usually last the life of the house. -Pljister cracks are usually caused by settling of the house, shrinkage of wood used in conjunction, improper mixing of plaster. Plaster is made or sand, water, and lime, or gypsum, mixed to n plastic state and applied in 3 successive coals. Tlie extremely thin finish coat may have a smooth or L sand texture. The smooth coat :an-be papered or tinted with any kind of paint; sand finish does not woric well with paper or enamel paint. Gyjisum plaster is ready-mixed only water being added at the Job; plain plaster requires addition of sand as well HS water.
