Questions & Answers

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

Asked by: Netta1
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?

Asked by: Chellie
You have to go over it with plaster or drywall mud and finish it before you can paint. It’s purpose is to reinforce hairline cracks on the existing surface. I don’t think paintcwill cover it. Cut it to length before you use is also. Don’t try to unroll it on the wall.

Asked by: Kim
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.

Can this be used over an entire wall before skim-coating, to reduce risk of cracking? can't see it hurting
Asked by: Raffi
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.

Saint-Gobain ADFORS 36 in. x 75 ft. Extra-Wide Wall and Plaster Repair Fabric is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this stuff! I use this mesh for repairing lath & plaster ceilings and walls. I first remove all the crumbling plaster, and then use plaster washers (aka buttons) with drywall screws to fasten loose plaster back to the lath. After that, I use a layer of this mesh over the buttons. I do it by myself; I usually cut a 3x4 piece at a time. It has just the right amount of adhesive, so it will stick when you put it up, but it's not so sticky that you can't readjust the mesh if necessary. However, if you leave it for weeks, it will fall down. The adhesive is only for application, it's not meant to be permanent. After sticking the mesh up, I smooth out any bubbles or folds in the mesh with a 6in trowel. I usually slice any massive folds (these are especially annoying if I'm working on a coved ceiling, for example). Bumps in the mesh make your life harder when doing additional coats of joint compound. Do your first coat of joint compound (I like the 90 minute setting compound). Make sure to squeeze the mud into the mesh, so that it sticks to any exposed lath, plaster buttons, and the old plaster. I would imagine that gaps would be bad over time, as the mesh and plaster fight gravity. After a few coats of joint compound and some smoothing (I like to use a Magic Trowel, which is basically just a squeegee, but use whatever works best for you), you end up with a nice smooth wall or ceiling. The mesh gives your skim coat strength. In places where I've not used mesh, hitting the wall or moisture from incorrect primer has caused the dried mud to crumble and fall off. Where the mesh is, the mud stays in place.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product I've used this product for several jobs where the plaster had spider-web cracks or alligatoring and it has performed well. If you're repairing a ceiling, you'll need some help unrolling the fabric since it's an awkward application. Otherwise, if you're doing a wall, you can get it started on the wall and unroll it by yourself. Occasionally there will be a tear in the fabric which is a minor annoyance. I cover it with two coats of All Purpose mud, smoothed with a pool trowel (nice rounded corners). Sand smooth and you're ready for primer and paint. After you've sanded you may notice that the mesh shows through. In my experience, there isn't any need to re-coat because the mesh doesn't show through the paint.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked as described The product worked just as advertised. Easy to install the self-adhesive mesh and then simply skim coat over the product. I do not believe this product will provide any type of structural integrity, however it certainly should strengthen the skim coat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, good for DIYers I've been using it on our 1901 house with plaster/wood lath walls. The sticky backing makes application very straightforward. Two or three tight coatings of wallboard compound with light sanding of high spots in between coats, and the result has been the best looking walls I've ever done. Tip: search FINE HOMEBUILDING for a helpful article.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 36" Wide Drywall Repair Mesh Fabric As a residential remodel contractor I regularly have the need to repair drywall. After removing wallpaper or kitchen backsplashes this mesh tape enables me to quickly cover the surface and mud it regaining all the drywall strength. I would highly recommend this product.

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.
