My home recently suffered some damage during a tornado. Some areas of the plaster ceiling have water damage and there are also just cracks ..... My contractor is suggesting that we go over the existing plaster ceiling with 1/4" sheetrock and then put a thin layer of plaster over the sheetrock. Is this a good alternative? Would that keep the integrity of my 1930 house in tact? I'm told the alternative is to replaster the areas that got wet and then do a sand finish on the entire ceiling. He said though that the ceiling would still crack with this solution while doing the first suggestion would eliminate future cracking. I'd appreciate some input.
