More about this skill

Plasterers work on both inside and outside surfaces, often creating metal frames and installing plasterboard to create drywalls before applying the final plaster surface.

They will know how to interpret plans using a range of materials and are able to work on projects that include curved surfaces, windows, doors and decorative molding.

Plasterers are typically employed as sub-contractors for work on domestic and commercial projects, as well as heritage sites.
