Everyone loves a beautifully painted house, don’t they? A properly painted wall adds a different touch to the look and feel of your house. And if the color of the paint is vibrant, it is an added advantage. Many a time, you will get to see that your wall has a rough or uneven surface after painting. Any idea why this happens? The reason is that many skip the step of applying wall putty before the paint.
Constructing a strong wall is a lengthy process as it requires at least 2-3 coatings of plastering starting from gypsum plastering to primer to wall putty. To apply the coatings of each layer, you have to wait for the previous layer to dry up. This is what makes it even more lengthy. And it is only fair that you get a beautiful and smooth wall once it is constructed after these many steps. However, many run short of patience and happen to skip the step of applying wall putty. Read on this blog to know why wall putty is important in wall construction.
Wall Putty – An overview
Before we go into the details of wall putty, first let’s understand what is meant by wall putty. Available in three different forms, putty is a base plaster of walls that is applied after the coating of primer and before the coating of the paint. This helps in achieving a smooth and even surface that enhances the beauty of the wall. Wall putty is available in the market as
