We recently had a large fire in our 1912 neocolonial and unfortunately due to fire and water damage had to remove more than half of the original wood lath and horse hair plaster that had stood up well for a century.
I know we can replace with blueboard and plaster veneer.
My question is: Is there a more historically accurate or better quality option? What are all the choices to consider (i.e. metal lath _ plaster, blueboard + plaster veneer). Cost is not as much an issue because our insurance covers replacing with similar quality so we can use the best replication of original plaster.
Thanks - I am sure I will have additional posts on other threads as we try to restore as much of the original and period construction that we can.
