Quick Tip: Ornamental Plaster Reproductions

With ornamental plaster reproductions, homeowners can replace damaged historic detailing or grace new construction with a charming addition, rich in history.

Modern manufacturers are finding ways to reproduce cornice moldings, brackets, rosettes and ceiling medallions, using lightweight polymers. Less prone to damage than plaster, polymer details are flexible, paintable, and they come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes.
