Plastering Aldridge

Aldridge Plasterers: Whether you are thinking about having a small area of plaster repaired, a whole room plastered or need the plastering of your entire property in Aldridge, you will need a qualified and professional plasterer to manage the project for you. Unless you are extremely confident, plastering is not something you should attempt by yourself, mastering this trade takes years of practise.

Quite a few home improvement projects will require some plastering work to be done, even smaller jobs. It could be plastering over an old artexed ceiling, fitting mouldings or coving before decorating, plaster repair to get ready for tiling or plaster skimming a dry lined partition. In fact, it might be any one of dozens of plastering related tasks.

Aldridge Plasterers

Any decent Aldridge plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some photographs) of successfully completed jobs, ask to see it so that you can make sure they know their stuff. You want to avoid hiring "cowboys" for this kind of work, at all costs. You'll soon come to realise the many problems that can arise as a result of substandard plastering.

When you start decorating the defects will begin to show up. When viewed in bright sunlight, even more imperfections will show up on any defective surfaces. When you have the choice between competent plasterers in Aldridge and bad ones, always use a competent one.

You must never forget that the plastering is a base on which other materials are applied, so it must be flat and smooth. An imperfectly plastered surface will cause severe problems with any area of tiling, the accurate fitting of architraves, the installation of kitchen units and the decorating of the surfaces.

Plasterer Aldridge

The most experienced Aldridge plasterers will get a polished finish right from the trowel. A plastered wall or ceiling should never need to be sanded down to get a nice finish, it should only need a quick rub with fine glasspaper before it is decorated. If any degree of vigorous sanding is needed to smooth the plastered areas, they were not correctly done in the first place. If the use of electric sanding machines is becoming commonplace, there's definately something amiss with your plasterer.

Plastering and Coving Aldridge

A common reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times, is to plaster over an old artexed ceiling. Artex was at its height of popularity in Aldridge during the 1970's and 80's, but at present it is out of fashion. Plastering over that dated artex ceiling to make it look more sleek and contemporary is something that most plasterers in Aldridge will gladly do. If however, you want to bring a bit of that 1970's style back into your home, most plasterers will be just as glad to coat your ceiling with artex as they are to plaster over it.
