Any decent Arnold plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some photographs) of successfully completed jobs, ask to see it so you can make sure they know their stuff. For this kind of work, you certainly don't want to be employing "cowboys". You will quickly come to realise the many complications that can arise as a result of shoddy plastering.

It's easy to notice any defects once a coat of paint has gone on the newly plastered wall. Such flaws will be even more highlighted when viewed in bright daylight. So, make sure you only consider decent plasterers in Arnold.

The most important thing for plastered surfaces is that they be level and smooth. A shoddily plastered surface will cause severe issues with the fitting of architraves, the tiling of wall surfaces, the fitting of kitchen units and the wallpapering and painting of ceilings and walls.

You should expect nothing less than a polished finish straight from the trowel. Walls and ceilings that have been plastered by a professional, should never need sanding down. You might realistically anticipate some areas that need a little work with sandpaper, but not to any great extent. You should be very wary if you see the power sanders coming out or their boxes.

Plastering and Coving Arnold

These days, one of the most common jobs a plasterer is requested to do, is plaster over an old artex ceiling. Artex was at its height of popularity in Arnold during the 1970's and 1980's, but today it is not so fashionable. Your Arnold plasterer will jump at the chance to cover up those dated artex ceilings and get your home looking fresh and contemporary once again. If however, you want to bring a bit of that 70's style back into your home, most plasterers will be just as glad to apply artex as they are to cover it up.

Rendering Arnold: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mix of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes interior) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resisting qualities, though it's generally employed for cosmetic purposes. While of course it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a more effective option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable result.

Dry Lining Arnold (Plasterboarding): Quite a few plasterers in Arnold also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be needed in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is affixed to Gypframe metal framing, a wooden studding or a masonry or brickwork surface to produce a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst it's feasible to decorate the plasterboard finish as it is, normally most prefer to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coating to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" drywall adhesive is used, when fixing plasterboard to wood joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used and when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.
