Years ago my cousin awoke one night to discover that the sagging ceiling plaster over her bed had finally let go! If my uncle had known about these nifty plaster washers, my cousin probably wouldn’t have had such a story to tell. If you are living in an older home with plaster walls and ceilings, you’ve probably experienced sagging plaster too, especially when the plaster is attached to wooden lath. Use these handy plaster washers with any #8 flat head screw to spread the load, and pull the plaster back against the lath. These plaster washers have a special corrosion resistant coating to prevent bleeding, and 4 holes which promotes the base coat bond with the washer. Plaster washers are 1-1/4" in diameter and measure about .024" thick (less than 1/32") Made in USA.
Note: Screws not included with washers.

Comments about 1-1/4'' Plaster Washers - Plain:
I have a house that is 93 years in use. The walls are beginning to crack and sag (any wonder?). Catching the problem early is saving a bunch of money, time and effort. The alternative is to tear down the plaster walls and replace with drywall. Using these washers is much cleaner and less back breaking.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Best value on this product
Plaster Washers - Awesome!
I added a second floor to my 100 yo home. In the process plaster broke out of my first floor ceiling in many areas. Repair was quoted at a couple thousand dollars. I followed the instructions on This Old House and used the plaster washers. In addition to the product working as good as described, McFeelys got them to me the day after I placed my order. One of the best on-line shopping experiences ever. Thank you, McFeelys!
Just what we needed!
