Can this repair a large section (24 inch) of missing/crumbled plaster?

Asked by Netta1 September 27, 2016

Answers

Not really. This stuff is more for reinforcing walls that have hair line cracks that your going to skim coat. You sound like you would be better off removing the section of plaster and replacing it.

Can you paint over it once in place?

The size of the mesh varies slightly, with some rectangles larger than others, but averages eight (8) rectangles per inch of length and eight rectangles of per inch of width of mesh material. The mesh material itself also has an adhesive backing which facilitates attaching it directly to a wall or ceiling, rather than having to apply joint compound prior to attaching the mesh material, as would otherwise be necessary with paper tape.

can this be used to mount tile pieces prior to install for a mosaic tile floor inset?

If you were to put just a dot of hot glue on the back of the piece of tile and stick it to the mesh I think it would work just fine. Good luck with your project.

When I have used this for wall repairs, I have usually applied two to three light coats of joint compound, in order to cover the mesh and strengthen the bond of the joint compound covering the mesh repair fabric, feathering lightly across a wider surface in order to visually diminish any noticeable appearance of the repair. After my final light or skim coat, I then apply primer, followed by finish paint..

Yes. But it does not unroll well. Make sure you cut pieces to apply and do not unroll it on the wall. Works better if it’s embeded into the drywall mud or plaster and not directly to the wall but will still work directly on the wall. I would still cut it first.

I just found it on the HOME DEPOT website by using a search for ADFORS CRACKSTOP repair fabric. It is not the only item that appears in response to the search, but if you scroll down, it should be there. ADFORS is a St. Gobain product family name.

Great product, was easier to apply than expected. I couldn't afford a complete bathroom renovation and the paint was peeling and cracking. After scraping and sanding most of the walls, I used this on several different walls in my bathroom, including inside the shower. I had patched a 4" x 6" odd shaped hole using the standard method and, needed the larger product to support the surrounding area because the "1953" cement board was crumbling and the sand was exposed. It's only been three weeks since it's been up, but so far no bubbles or peeling, it helps to use a waterproof primer also. I would recommend this product to any DIY homeowner with an older home.

I have been able to accomplish some amazing repairs through the use of this fiberglass cloth material. Its adhesive backing makes it possible to apply easily over the damaged drywall area, and after carefully applying a few coats of joint compound, the repair material is covered, primer and paint, it is no longer possible to determine that previous damage ever existed.

While I've used this product for interior walls, I used it recently on a brick wall that had serious spalling, imbedding the mesh in the scratch coat of a 9 square foot area and then putting the two successive coats over using lime mortar, sand, and a bit of regular mortar.
