Before any work begins you need to check out prospective Aldershot plasterers to see if they know their stuff. Ask to see some photos or a portfolio of completed projects. You should avoid hiring "cowboys" for this sort of work, no matter what. Significant complications can result from shoddy plastering, as you'll soon come to realise.

When a coat of paint goes on a freshly plastered wall or ceiling, you will soon notice any defects. Even more so, with the sunlight shining onto the freshly plastered surfaces. It should always be possible to locate experienced plasterers in Aldershot, so why pick a bad one?

Being level and smooth is the most important attribute for plastered surfaces, because they are just a base upon which other materials are applied. A badly plastered surface can cause severe issues with any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms), fitting architraves, the fitting of kitchen units and the painting and wallpapering of ceilings and walls.

You should expect nothing less than a polished finish right from the trowel. Walls and ceilings that have been plastered by a professional, should never need to be sanded down. If the finished plastering needs strenuous sanding, you know that it hasn't been done as it should be. If you see the electric sanders coming out you should be very wary.

Plastering and Coving Aldershot

A common reason for calling in a plasterer these days, is to plaster over an old artex ceiling. There are still hundreds of ceilings in Aldershot which are decorated with this once fashionable finish. Covering that artex ceiling with plaster is something that most Aldershot plasterers will gladly do so as to make it look more sleek and modern. If however, you would like to bring a bit of that 1970's style back into your home, most plasterers will be just as glad to apply artex as they are to cover it up.

Rendering Aldershot: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mix of lime, cement, sand and water is applied to external (and occasionally interior) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is quite popular all around Europe and is particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire retarding qualities, although it is generally used for cosmetic purposes. While it is of course possible to paint a rendered wall, an even better alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result.

Screeding Aldershot: Several plasterers in Hampshire can also provide screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is normally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be left as a wearing floor surface, to be covered with a floor finish (such as tiles, carpet or floor boards) or to encase underfloor heating pipes. An effectively laid screed can considerably extend the life of the whole floor and ensure its durability, quality and finish. The hand mixing of screed is only appropriate for small areas, otherwise a screed pump should be used to rapidly produce a smooth, even mixture of cement, sand and water and to transport (pump) this fine mix straight to its exact location, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like. There are various different types of floor screed available in Aldershot, therefore you should enquire about which is appropriate for your screeding project, you will need to pick from bonded screed, traditional screed, floor levelling compound, free-flowing screed, fast drying screed, unbonded screed and structural screed.

Plaster Aldershot: Plaster is a common building material which is used for decorating or protecting ceilings and walls in Aldershot, and for making decorative features. In the United Kingdom the term "plaster" typically pertains to a material which is applied to the interiors of structures, while the material used on external areas is known as "render". The most commonplace kinds of plaster typically contain either gypsum, lime, or cement, though all work in a similar way. Plaster is is produced in powdered form and when needed, is combined with water to form a stiff but easy to work paste immediately prior to application. The reaction between the water and the plaster powder generates heat by way of crystallization and the mix subsequently sets and hardens.

Artexing Aldershot: Whilst more common throughout the Seventies and Eighties artex is still a decent way to enhance the appearance of ceilings, in particular shabby or cracked ones. It's not quite as easy to track down a plasterer who'll deal with artexing at the moment, where at one time there were a lot of tradespeople who did nothing but apply artex and do artex removal. What helped its attractiveness was possibly the wide range of designs that it could be applied in, and it appeared that everyone had their preferred style, possibly it was pairs, scroll, broken leather, stipple, basket weave, bark, criss-cross, hook & line, medusa, circle or swirl. No matter what your taste, there seemed to be an artex design to fit. You can of course still get ceilings done in any of these artex styles today, simply track down a local Aldershot plasterer who continually executes this sort of work, rather that one which will simply "give it a try", by doing this you should make sure you will get a decent job done of it. The one drawback of artex, and one that brought about its demise, is it is hard to patch or repair.
