Product Description

From the Back Cover

This book provides a thorough introduction to the techniques of modern plastering and a comprehensive treatment of present day fibrous plasterwork .

It also inlcudes full technical details of solid work, and thorough coverage of obsolete practices for the purpose of conservation work. It features working drawings in isometric projection to present a three dimensional picture of specific jobs.

The third edition has been updated to take account of new materials, changes to British Standards, and the latest health and safety requirements.

It will serve as an excellent text for NVQ plastering students, whilst its encyclopaedic structure enables the experienced plasterer to select information quicky on finer points when faced with an unfamiliar task. Architects and surveyors will welcome it as as a guide to the scope of the craft and its materials, as a reference for conservation work.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected 8 Jan. 2005
By plasterman - Published on
Verified Purchase
This book was written in the UK. None of the terms or products are the same as the USA. Even the explanations of techniques are hard to understand because of all the english terms and slangs. I would not recommend this book because of this. 40.00 some dollars is a lot (too much)for this book and the knowledge it contains.
