Plasterers Amersham

Amersham Plasterers: Whether you are wanting to have your entire home in Amersham plastered, just one room re-skimmed, or merely one small section of plaster repaired, you will be hunting for a seasoned and professional plasterer to carry out the work effectively. It is not advisable to attempt plastering yourself, since it is a craft that often takes many years to master.

There are a lot of home improvement projects, even smaller ones, which result in some plastering work needing to be carried out. It could be plaster skimming dry lining, fitting coving or decorative mouldings before decorating, applying some screeding or plastering over an old artexed ceiling. In actual fact, it may be any of a multitude of plastering related chores.

Plasterers Amersham

There are several ways to find out if potential Amersham plasterers know their stuff, one way is to ask for a portfolio of previous jobs. Getting stuck with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering is the thing that you want to avoid at all costs. Shoddy plastering is worse than no plastering at all, as it is extremely difficult to put right down the road.

It's when the painting and decorating starts that any imperfections become glaringly obvious. Your newly plastered surfaces will probably look even worse with the sunlight shining on them. To avoid problems like this, choose only from experienced plasterers in Amersham.

The primary attribute of plastered surfaces is that they be smooth and flat, forming a level base for other materials to be applied to them. A poorly plastered surface can cause major complications with the accurate fitting or skirting boards, the tiling of wall surfaces, the fitting of kitchen units and the painting and wallpapering of walls and ceilings.

Amersham Plasterer

You should expect nothing less than a perfect, polished finish right from the trowel. Any professional plasterer will tell you that a correctly plastered ceiling or wall should never need sanding down to achieve a nice finish. You might reasonably expect some areas that need a bit of attention with sandpaper, but not to any great degree. If the use of orbital sanders is becoming commonplace, there is definately something amiss with your plasterer.

Plastering and Coving Amersham

Plastering over an old artex ceiling is one common reason for calling in a plasterer these days. Today out of favour in Amersham, artex was the most widely used decorative finish for ceilings during the nineteen seventies and eighties. Most plasterers in Amersham will gladly plaster over that dated artex ceiling, making it look more sleek and contemporary. If you're a bit retro in your taste, you might wish to give your currently smooth ceilings some character by actually putting on some artex.

Rendering Amersham: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to exterior (and occasionally interior) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resistant qualities, although it is largely employed for aesthetic purposes. While of course it is possible to paint a rendered surface, an even better solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result.

Plasterboarding Amersham (Dry Lining): Certain plasterers in Amersham also offer dry lining services, which are required in plenty of home improvements. Dry lining is the procedure where plasterboard is affixed to a brickwork or masonry surface, a wood studding or joist or Gypframe metal framing to form a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. Whilst you can decorate the plasterboard finish itself after a bit of filling, in reality most people choose to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coating to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used, when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a masonry or brick wall the "dot and dab" method is used.

Artexing Amersham BuckinghamshireArtexing Amersham: Though more common through the Seventies and Eighties artex remains a great way to enhance the look of a ceiling, in particular a cracked or shabby one. It is not quite so easy to find a plasterer who will deal with artexing presently, where in the good old days you could find numerous tradesmen who did little else but artex and artex removal. What raised its attractiveness was probably the wide array of designs it was fashioned in, and it seemed that everyone had their favourite, maybe it might have been bark, scroll, pairs, criss-cross, medusa, broken leather, circle, hook & line, swirl, stipple or basket weave. Whatever your taste was, you'd find a style of artex to match. Obviously you can still have ceilings done in all these styles these days, just locate a local Amersham plasterer who constantly performs this type of work, rather that one which will merely "have a bash", in this manner you can be sure that you will get a proper job made of it. The one drawback of artex, and what probably brought about its decline, is that it is really difficult to patch or repair.
