Reviews - What do customers think about Plaster, Render, Paint and Coatings: Details, Products, Case Studies (Detail Practice)?
range of case studies is frustratingly limited! Jul 18, 2007
I've always been pleased by In Detail publications and own a few of their titles in English - books I often refer to while designing my work. I was intrigued by this one while researching stucco techniques for a new project - my first such.
For the first time - and in a bad way, since expectations were high - In Detail has let me down. Every case study presented in this book is for plaster applied over concrete substrates. Not a single example of plaster applied to wood frame construction! To add insult to injury, all the window/door head and jamb details are way too similar to really be worth including for "variety". The entire book could be reduced to an article in their magazine!
I wish I had an alternative title to recommend to you. For now all I can tell you is: if you're looking for a good range of information regarding finishing walls with stucco, this isn't it. If you just want to complete your collection of In Detail issues, try checking it out in person to see if you still think it's worth the shelf space and its price.
