November 10, 2021 – Woemmel Plastering, based in St. Louis, offers homeowners and commercial locations premium plastering services. The company’s team of experts offers solutions to some of the most frequently asked questions by period homeowners. They specialize in renovating and preserving historic properties while keeping intact the beauty of traditional molding.

The company began by servicing small residential, and to this day, they remain an integral part of the business. While smaller projects allow the company to provide homeowners with detail and customization, larger projects enable them to create a steady style. The company’s clientele includes St. Louis Zoo, Missouri Historical Society, Fox Theatre, Saint Louis University, Washington University, Federal Reserve Saint Louis, Discovery Elementary, Hillsboro Intermediate, and Villa Farrato’s Restaurant.   

“In addition to our commitment of expertise and excellence in craftsmanship, we proudly employ specialized support, administrative and clerical staff.  Clients are treated with the utmost respect and professionalism.  Our office staff, estimators, and plasterers all strive to make your experience with our company outstanding”, says a spokesperson for Woemmel Plastering. 

The experts at Woemmel Plastering provide answers to a commonly asked question; should a historic home be skimmed or plastered? The answer is yes. Periodic homes can be skimmed or plastered for maintenance to preserve the old plastering while renovating the place simultaneously. However, if there aren’t any cracks or peelings, a simple coat of paint will do the job. 

Experts also say that drywall must not be replaced instead of plaster, nor should it be used for covering up. This will make the area look smaller and impair additional details like moldings and door and window casings. If opting for a skim coat, this will form a thin, small layer over the original moldings. The fine durable finish will preserve the plaster and make painting over much easier.

Woemmel Plastering only hires licensed, skilled applicators to provide Venetian plaster, interior and exterior stucco, exterior insulated finish systems (EIFS), and custom moldings.  The company incorporates modern technology and guarantees the best rest for its clients.

Frank Woemmel founded Woemmel Plastering Company in 1933. He launched this St. Louis family tradition that would be an ode to the world’s most beautiful architecture. Now in its fourth generation, with Connie Woemmel as President, the company continues to proudly continue its legacy as St. Louis’s vital resource for beautiful architectural detail.
