Why should i insulate & plaster my home?

You can save a lot of money when you insulate & plaster your home. As there is so much heat lost through walls / roofs etc., you need to find a way to keep this in. When you insulate your home or workplace, you will notice your heating bill start to drop. It is an investment that will pay for itself over time. The time will depend on the type of insulation you get. Speak to one of our team who can advise on how quickly it will pay for itself.

Internal Plastering

Slabbing/drywall is usually the first job a Plasterer will have to do when he starts the inside of a property. Slabs/drywall can either be screwed or anchored onto stud walls & ceilings or they can be stuck on with adhesive & then levelled using a straight edge & level ,this system is known as dot & dab. The purpose of slabbing/drywall is to provide a backing for the skim coat plaster or tape & jointing. DG Plastering has carried out Slabbing/Drywall jobs all over Cork City & Cork County including Blarney , Mallow , Carrigaline , Midleton , Kinsale ,Glanmire , Ballincollig & Fermoy so as you can see that we do not have an issue with travelling.

External Plastering

There are many different types of external finishes in the trade of Plastering. The most common finish around Ireland in our experience & especially in Cork is Smooth finish. Smooth finish consists of three coats of plaster. The first coat is usually called scudding which is a mixture of 2x1 sand & cement mixture applied to wall using a scudding scoop. This coat is to provide a key or grip for the second coat which is called a scrathcoat. The scratchcoat is a 4x1x1 mixture of sand, cement & waterproofer which is applied & levelled over the scud to form a key/grip for the smooth finish coat.


If you are tired of paying hundreds of euro a month just to keep your home at a comfortable temperature, it may be time to look into having your loft insulated. The benefits of doing so can be immense. Many people find that they are able to cut their heating bills just by putting more insulation into this part of their home. As everyone knows, hot air rises, so the warm air from the living areas of your home tends to rise up through the ceiling & out the roof. If there is no insulation in place, this heat can easily escape, thereby requiring your furnace to use more energy to keep home warm.
