Maybe not as much as birds, but I do hate it. What's even worse is plaster under a leaking roof. And we have both. No problem, we'll just tear it out. Did I mention that plaster is like brittle, dusty concrete? So far we've removed the plaster from most of the kitchen (walls/ceiling), the master bedroom ceiling and the upstairs ceiling in the hallway/stairwell. The benefits of this upstairs is we get to add recessed lights and insulation. The benefits downstairs is a new kitchen.
