About Us

Coastal Plastering & Repair’s History

The rich history of Tallahassee’s buildings is embedded deep into the history of our plastering company. We love the beauty of the Florida buildings. Furthermore, our team respects the southern craftsmen who were there before us.

Our roots started in 2002 when Neal Turlington worked at a local plaster business learning about the craft. The philosophy of plastering is to apply oneself completely. He learned every technique from who he worked for. Neal pushed the limits of excellence in pursuit of mastery of his skillset.

Experience the Difference with Our Team

One of the pleasures of being a plastering and stucco contractor is that we get to work in all sorts of different buildings and historic homes. We trace the hand of the master craftsmen who were there before us. This means analyzing the patterns and techniques that were unique to their hand, looking critically and asking; “left or right handed, hard or soft trowel, wrist or shoulder rotation,” etc. We walk away with the satisfaction of knowing that the work was done with respect for the original craftsman. Excellent results is what we live for!

The History Of Stucco & Plastering

The history of plastering dates back to around 7,500 BC when early civilizations in present-day Jordan were known for using a lime-based plaster for interior walls and floors of their dwellings. The Egyptians lined the walls of pyramids with a stucco type substance to keep out animals, wind and rain. They used a mixture of lime and gypsum to cover the walls. In the Greek era, plastering advanced a little more and received its name.

 

The word plastering is of Greek origin and means ‘to daub on’. Around 500 BC the Greeks began utilizing a form of plaster to cover the temple walls. They did this, so they could paint fresco murals on them. During the 19th century, gypsum plaster began to replace lime. This replacement helped reduce the time the plaster took to dry and enhanced the workability.
