STABILIZATION

For thousands of years all over the world, families and communities had to reapply plaster or stucco over the walls of their adobe homes regularly to keep the adobe from absorbing water and humidity and then falling apart. There are many historic adobe buildings with a “slumped” look which is due to the build up of protective plaster layers. Earth and lime plasters were the classic methods for maintaining adobe for centuries. But this process also required a great deal of human labor and time, which our modern world has in short supply.
