Ornamental Plastering

Ornamental & Decorative Plastering

Ornamental plaster can include decorative cornice and crown moldings, medallions, flat band work, and highly decorative designs. Aside from its undeniable aesthetic beauty, ornamental and decorative plaster is a solution homeowners and contractors turn to when searching for a way to add a unique feature to their home or commercial building.

We do new work as well as repair and match damaged existing ornamental plaster. We will work with your architect or interior designer to help you express your creativity with unique plaster designs.

Why would you use plaster moldings rather than decorative wood trim?

Plaster is more structurally stable than wood. It does not shrink like wood. You can achieve a much greater scope of detail along with the ability to more cost effectively reproduce larger quantities of intricate moldings.

Can you match and repair a damaged design?

Yes, we can make molds to match existing decorative and ornamental plaster. We then use those molds to make our repairs. We also work with several affiliates to create new or recreate existing patterns or designs.

Where can a homeowner incorporate ornamental and decorative plaster?

Medallions can be placed around light fixtures or added to enhance a large plain ceiling. Crown moldings can add a distinctive touch to a room. There are a wide variety of designs that can be placed on ceilings. Columns with capitals and pedestals can also add a decorative touch to a room. Radius coves, groin vaulted ceilings, dome ceilings, and barrel vaulted ceilings are other ornamental options that Ladd Plastering has experience installing.
