On-site American Clay Plaster Consultation (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

Consultation Phase 1 will include:

  • A detailed description of American Clay Plaster wall systems and their unique components, so you can understand and make an educated selection for your personal space.

  • An in-depth discussion & explanation of substrate requirements.

  • Colour sample sets provided to allow you to see the beauty of American Clay Plaster colour pigments in your personal space with your unique lighting. Custom colours and colour-matching are also available for a nominal fee to match a favourite paint colour and achieve a completely custom look for your project.

We understand that the reasons behind selecting an eco-friendly wall finish can go beyond that of an environmentally conscious and responsible decision.

For those clients and any client for that matter, we can cater our services to provide a wall-system and installation that is 100% natural.

  • American Clay Plaster Custom sample boards (2' x 2') will be provided based on our discussions in Phase 1 which will show the unique colours and textural finish selected for each room.
