Can you plaster in the rain?
Also question is, can you render in the rain?
Do not apply render whilst it is raining. This includes if rainfall is forecast during your initial set or once you have newly applied material on the wall. When it is wet it's very important not to render onto saturated backgrounds as this can reduce bond strength and cause unsightly lime bloom to occur.
Additionally, how long does external plaster take to dry? Plasterboard takes on average 2-3 days to dry when plastered, whereas backing plaster takes 4-6 days. No matter what material you have used, it is advisable to wait at least a week before painting new plaster. Sometimes it may even take up to a month for the fresh plaster to be completely dry.
Beside this, can scratch coat get wet?
After rain, when the scratch coat is wet the required suction does not exist; the brown coat should not be installed. Depending on the post-storm conditions, elevations may remain wet for days. The scratch coat must be somewhat dry before the brown coat is applied.
