The answer is simple, the cracks we see on the wall are an external manifestation of a problem that arose inside the wall is why the solution must be from the inside.

After opening the channel sufficiently to the full extent of the crack, we take care to clean thoroughly to remove as much dust as possible. The most frequently used pastes for repairing cracks today are putties and fillers. Gypsum and plaster were also used for this task, but these newer substances offer several advantages related to their hardness, drying capacity and adhesion.

The paste is applied perpendicular to the crack. That is, if the crack follows a vertical direction, we apply the filling paste with small horizontal passes and in both directions: one from right to left and the other, backwards. The objective is to occupy with the paste the whole interior of the crack.

After application, let the paste dry, we recommend waiting several hours for a clearer result. Once dry, apply sandpaper if necessary so that the wall with the affected area is completely even and your wall will be completely repaired. Contact us to receive our offers and promotions.
