Plasterers Accrington

Accrington Plasterers: Plastering jobs come in all shapes and sizes and no matter how big or small, you will want to locate a competent and professional plasterer to work on your home in Accrington. It is not advisable to attempt plastering yourself, since it is a craft that takes many years to master.

Some plastering work is often needed, even on smaller home improvement jobs. It could be latex screeding, skimming a dry lined partition, plastering over artex or installing coving or mouldings before decorating. In reality, it could be any of dozens of plastering related chores.

Before any work begins you need to check out prospective Accrington plasterers to see if they know their stuff. Ask to see some photos or a portfolio of completed projects. You want to avoid hiring "cowboys" for this type of work, no matter what. Though it may not always be immediately obvious, poor quality plastering can result in significant problems as work progresses.

It's easy to notice any defects once a coat of paint has gone on the freshly plastered wall. Any uneven plastered surface will look even worse in bright sunlight. When you have the choice between competent plasterers in Accrington and poor ones, always use a decent one.

Being smooth and level is the most crucial thing for plastered surfaces, since they are just a base onto which other materials are applied. An imperfectly plastered area may cause severe problems with the painting of the surfaces, any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms), the fitting of skirtings and the installation of kitchen units.

With plastering it is preferable to get a polished finish, directly from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from competent Accrington plasterers. A plastered wall or ceiling should never need to be sanded down to get a good finish, it should only require a quick rub with fine glasspaper before it is decorated. If too much sanding is taking place, the plastering wasn't done properly in the first place. You should be very suspicious if you see the electric sanders coming out or their boxes.

Plastering and Coving Accrington

In recent times, a common reason to call in a plasterer is to cover an old artex ceiling. A popular form of ceiling finish in Accrington during the 70's and 80's, artex is pretty much out of favour right now. In order to get your ceilings looking fresh and modern once again, your Accrington plasterer will gladly cover them up with a smooth new finish. On the flip side, many plasterers will also apply artex to your smooth ceilings if you want to bring back that 1970's style.

Rendering Accrington: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mixture of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to external (and sometimes internal) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is popular all around Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resistant qualities, though it is largely employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a more effective solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result.

Screeding Accrington: Several plasterers in Accrington, Lancashire can also provide a floor screeding service, whereby a new level floor surface is formed using a cement mix. Screeding is typically put on top of a concrete sub-floor to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface, to encase underfloor heating pipes or to take on the final floor finish. A properly laid screed can considerably increase the life of the whole floor and ensure its durability, quality and finish. Hand mixing screed must only be used where smaller areas are involved, in all other cases a proper screed pump should be used to swiftly produce an even, smooth mixture of cement and sand and to transport (pump) this perfect mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such. There are several different types of floor screed available in Accrington, therefore you need to inquire about which is appropriate for your project, you'll need to pick from free-flowing screed, bonded screed, structural screed, floor levelling compound, traditional screed, fast drying screed and unbonded screed.
