Providing Rigips walls or drywall constructions with roll-up plaster (€ 49.99 at Amazon *) can be a very good and inexpensive way of doing the plastering yourself and thus saving craftsmen's costs. If roller plaster based on synthetic resin or made of lime is used, subsequent painting of the wall can often be omitted.
Apply roll-up plaster to plasterboard walls - you have to pay attention to this
Rigips is a very highly absorbent substrate - a sufficient primer with a suitable deep primer (€ 4.81 at Amazon *) before the plaster is applied is always necessary. The filling of the panels and the screw holes should be checked again beforehand - they really have to be absolutely flat and level. Roll-on plaster is relatively fluid and therefore only produces a very thin layer - with roll-on plaster, existing unevenness can therefore hardly be leveled out. Make sure, especially in the corners and edges, that the acrylic joint is also level, and in any case cover it with a generous amount of deep primer. Then you can easily apply the roll-up plaster to the plasterboard wall. You can even apply lime plaster to plasterboard walls without a primer - subsequent painting is no longer necessary with lime plasters.

Quick wall design, easy finish
Lime plaster as roll plaster is a good choice for interiors - it can even be applied to plasterboard without a primer, offers an interesting, slightly rustic look and does not need any painting afterwards. Since it is very breathable, it allows moisture that could get to the plasterboard to escape easily, and it is also particularly mold-resistant. So if moisture should get into the plasterboard construction, the damage is still limited with lime plaster, while airtight synthetic resin plaster can often promote the formation of mold and the accumulation of moisture. In addition, lime plaster on Rigips is the fastest way of plastering walls and drywall constructions indoors; in general, most lime plasters even on Rigips do not require a primer and then no more painting over the plaster. A single coat of lime roll-on plaster is sufficient. That saves time, material and costs.
