I need to remove the plaster molding from my living room to make an opening on half of the wall. I would like to put it back after work. How to take off without damaging it?
First of all, did you check that this wall was not a carrier before considering this type of opening?
If this were the case, I can only advise you to hire a professional to carry out your work.
As for the molding, it is almost impossible to detach it without damage. Get inspired by our PLASTER MOLDING RESTORATION SHEET to create a template for your molding to restore it to the identical after the work is done. Otherwise you still have a much simpler solution to stick a commercial molding that looks like yours. Please refer to our "rosettes and moldings" sheet for more information.
