Heat Proofing Plaster Walls

Postby amcdon4117 » Wed Dec 05, 2007 12:45 pm

I have a pair of woodburners that are begining to damage (cracking plaster) the plaster walls (plaster on plasterboard) closeby. Can anyone advise on the best methods of replacing these surfaces (fitting flush with surrounding plasterwork) with a material that would be heat proof and paintable?
