Plasterers’ duties cover those performed by drywall finishers, that is, they fill and finish joints on gypsum wallboards. Plasterers, however, have other skills allowing them to apply other types of coating, such as stucco, cement and mortar, on different types of surfaces (walls, ceilings, floors). These specialists also install metal mouldings as well as gypsum fillets and decorative ornaments (ceiling roses around light fixtures). When finishing joints on gypsum wallboards, plasterers use trowels and mortarboards to spread the compound over the joint. They apply tape over the joint compound and smooth it down with the trowel. The following day, they apply a second coat of compound. On the third day, they sand the surface to remove all traces of the joint. Plasterers work in the residential sector and the construction industry, and are also employed by mobile or prefabricated home builders, governments and hospitals.
