New Conversion Fully Plastered and how Long Before Decorating?

Postby sadjonvee » Mon Oct 31, 2016 9:16 pm

My loft is newly converted and today was completely plastered - bedroom and bathroom, and external and internal walls around new staircase. I was informed that I should wait for four weeks before decorating to allow the plaster to dry and "settle". Is this right? And can I accelerate the process? There will be radiators in the new areas, and I can pop in fan heaters if that would help? Just concerned I don't a) damage plaster by trying to move too quickly or b) wait a month for no good reason!

Any advice gratefully accepted !
