Plastering Aberdare

Aberdare Plasterers: You should be looking for a qualified and professional plasterer whenever you need some plastering or rendering doing on your home in Aberdare. Whether the job is small or large shouldn't matter, this is not a task for amateurs. Plasterers can take several years to perfect their trade, so plastering isn't really something you can do for yourself.

A certain amount of plastering work can be generated by even the most basic home improvement projects.

The fact is, it could possibly be any of a large number of plastering related tasks.

Plasterers Aberdare

Any decent Aberdare plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some pictures) of successfully completed jobs, ask to see it so you can make sure they know their stuff. For this type of work, you want to avoid hiring "cowboys", no matter what. Significant problems can result from inferior plastering, as you will soon come to realise.

Any imperfections in your freshly plastered ceilings and walls will soon show up when a coat of paint is applied. Uneven surfaces become even more accentuated in bright sunshine. You'll avoid such issues by only picking from experienced plasterers in Aberdare.

Level and smooth are the main attributes of a plastered surface, since other materials will always be applied to it. An irregular plastered area will cause serious problems with the painting and decorating of the surfaces, the fitting of kitchen units, kitchen or bathroom tiling and the accurate fitting or skirting boards.

Plasterer Aberdare

Skillful Aberdare plasterers will get a perfect finish right from the trowel. You should never need to sand down a plastered ceiling or wall apart from a quick rub down before decorating. If strenuous sanding is required, you can safely assume that your plastering has not been done properly. There is definately something amiss with your plasterer, if you hear the buzz of orbital sanders.

Aberdare Plastering and Coving

A common reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times, is to plaster over an old artex ceiling. A popular form of ceiling finish in Aberdare during the Nineteen Seventies and Eighties, artex is to some degree out of favour today. Most plasterers in Aberdare will gladly plaster over that old artex ceiling, making it look more fresh and modern. Plastering over artex is preferable to removing it because it is quite difficult to get off or repair, which is doubtless why its popularity waned in the first place.

Aberdare Screeders

Screeding Aberdare: Several plasterers in Aberdare can also offer screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is usually applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be left as a wearing floor surface, to take on the final floor finish or to encase underfloor heating pipes. A correctly laid screed can significantly lengthen the lifespan of a floor and ensure its quality, finish and durability. The hand mixing of screed must only be used where smaller areas are involved, in all other instances a proper screed pump should be employed to speedily produce an even, smooth mixture of cement, sand and water and to transport (pump) this perfect mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such.

Pebble Dashing Aberdare: Love it or hate it pebble dashing has been used for many years to protect and decorate the external walls of homes in Aberdare, Wales. There are tradesmen specialise in pebble dashing out there, but quite often Aberdare plasterers will gladly do this kind of work for you. Pebbledashing (or pebble dashing) is a kind of external wall covering generally consisting of a couple of layers of a base coat made of sand and lime into which small pebbles, gravel or shells are pressed to form a maintenance free, tough and decorative finish on both refurbished and new homes.

Plasterboarding Aberdare (Dry Lining): A few plasterers in Aberdare also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is mounted on a brickwork surface, a metal frame or a timber studding or joist to form a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst you may decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, in reality most folks prefer to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coating afterwards to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a masonry or brick wall "dot and dab" drywall adhesive is used, when fixing plasterboard to wooden joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal frame self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.
