Lath and Plaster ceiling

lath and plaster ceilings and walls

Many older houses have plaster walls and ceilings with a wood lath for a base.

These wood laths are installed with gaps called keys that are between each piece of lath.

The plaster is forced between the spaced lath and this holds it into place.

Old lath and plaster is prone to cracking and sagging and can eventually fall down.

We can repair lath and plaster ceilings.
