Nu-Wal Plaster Restoration System

Makes Walls Look Like New Again. 

The Nu-Wal system conceals cracks and holes, producing a smooth consistent wall surface that looks like new. It works by covering and reinforcing whole walls and ceilings with an estomeric saturant (#2500 coating) and fiberglass mat which can be painted or papered. Cracks do not re-appear, and the surface resists impacts, abrasions, rot, and decay. The non-flammable material is perfect for indoor use and has no toxic fumes. The Nu-Wall system is durable, long-lasting, and easy to install. Repairing plaster with Nu-Wall conforms to all the requirements of ASTM E-1795 and ASTM E-1797 of liquid coatings for leaded paint in buildings.


  • 2 gallons of saturant and 1 roll of 40 ft. mat covers 160 sq. ft.
  • 6 gallons of saturant and 1 roll of 120 ft. mat covers 480 sq. ft.

Customer Questions & Answers

  1. Q Can this be used in a moisture rich environment such as a bathroom.. I have plaster that needs repairing.. some cracking and some bubbling...
    Answered by the admin

    Yes. All loose particles must be removed from the surface and it should be free of mildew or other contaminants. If the areas are chalky they must be sealed with a penetrating surface conditioner.

  2. Q How much should I order for 600 sq ft?
    Answered by the admin 2 Gallons of #2500 and 1 roll of 48x40 fiberglass mat covers 160 square feet. 6 Gallons of #2500 and 1 roll of 48x120 fiberglass mat covers 480 square feet.
  3. Q I found and watched . . They display and use more products than just the Saturant and Fiberglass mat. Will this system still work as well with only the TWO products you offer/sell?
    Answered by the admin The Nu-Wal Plaster Restoration System is designed to work with the saturant and the fiberglass mat. You can paint with a good quality paint afterwards.
  4. Q We have repairs happening to the underside of the house, which may include jacking up parts of the foundation. Would it be okay to apply the Nu-Wal system prior to slight movement of the house? We are trying to avoid more crack after application
    Answered by the admin Just to be safe, I would apply it after you finish jacking up parts of your foundation.
  5. Q I have cracks in the existing plaster that a previous owner painted over. Note, the walls are not lathe. They are a 1930s pressed fiber board with a thick plaster coating. Point being, I assume just the plaster cracked, not the wall board. My question is, do I have to do anything to prepare the cracks? They are above grade, so I assume I must at least scrap them down level to the surface of the wall. Not sure if other preparation is necessary before applying Nu-wal.
    Answered by the admin

    To prepare for Nu-Wal fill the cracks with joint compound, etc., and sand flush with the wall.

    Saw this product used on This Old House with Bob Villa (very long time ago). Used it to repair the cracked plaster on all the walls in a bedroom. That was 15 years ago. Walls still look like new. Easier to work with than I thought. Goes up relatively fast. HOWEVER walls need to be clean and free from dirt and other contaminants and/or freshly primed with something like Kilz Original. Do that and follow the directions and you have new walls.

  2. Steven Vastola

    I stole part of a bedroom to make my bathroom larger. So now in the bedroom I had one wall made out of drywall and the other walls of somewhat beat-up plaster. I did work hard ahead of time to smooth out any high spot, fill any crack and replace any loose material, but after the application of Nu-Wal all the walls are homogeneous and you would swear the room is new construction. That was 9 years ago and it still looks great. This stuff rocks and I am back to buy more for my kitchen.

  3. Rebecca Haven

    Excellent product to restore and preserve plaster walls. Used it over 20 years ago on one room in my 140 year old house and no new cracks have appeared. Just had it applied to 4 other rooms in my house. Requires good surface prep ahead of time to get the best result. Also, the best paint finish after using Nu-Wal seems to be matte or flat. Eggshell will work with lighter paint colors, but higher sheen paint in darker colors seems to highlight any surface texture irregularities – but that’s pretty much the case with any paint over patched plaster.

    We used Nu Wall 20 years ago to repair cracked plaster in our living room. It STILL looks like new. I’m back for more!
