Plastering Ascot

Ascot Plasterers: If you have some plastering that needs doing in your home in Ascot, you'll be looking for a seasoned and professional plasterer to do a good job on your behalf. It matters not if it is just a small area, a complete room or your entire property, you need a decent tradesman. Plasterers can take many years to hone their skills, so plastering isn't really something you can do yourself.

There are not that many home improvement projects that do not involve at least a little plastering work. It might be latex screeding, plastering over artex, fitting mouldings or coving before decorating or plaster skimming some dry lining. In truth, it might possibly be any one of a host of plastering related jobs.

Ascot Plasterers

Viewing a portfolio of successfully completed work is a good way to assess the quality of any prospective Ascot plasterers, you need to find someone who knows what they're doing. For this sort of work, you don't want to be hiring "cowboys". You will quickly come to realise the many problems that can arise as a result of inferior plastering.

Any imperfections in your freshly plastered ceilings and walls will soon show up when a splash of paint is applied. When viewed in bright daylight, even more imperfections will show up on any defective surfaces. It is really a no brainer that you should avoid dodgy tradesmen, and choose only from decent plasterers in Ascot.

Being merely a base onto which other materials are applied, means that plastered surfaces must be smooth and flat above all else. A poorly plastered surface could cause severe complications with the decorating of walls and ceilings, fitting architraves, kitchen or bathroom tiling and the installation of kitchen units.

The aim of experienced Ascot plasterers is to get a perfect, polished finish directly from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less. It shouldn't ever be necessary to use electric sanders on newly plastered walls and ceilings, just a quick rub down with a fine glasspaper before decorating. You might reasonably anticipate some areas that need a little attention with sandpaper, but not to any significant degree. You should check the quality of the plastering meticulously, if you see electric sanders being used.

Ascot Plastering and Coving

Plastering over old artexed ceilings is one of the most common reasons for contacting plasterers in recent times. A much loved decorative finish for ceilings in Ascot during the nineteen seventies and eighties, the popularity of artex has decreased recently. To give your ceilings that fresh and modern look once again, most plasterers in Ascot will be happy to cover them with plaster. 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 coat your ceiling with artex as they are to plaster over it.

Screeding in Ascot

Screeding Ascot: A number of plasterers in Ascot, Berkshire will also offer a floor screeding service, whereby a new level floor surface is formed using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is generally put on over a concrete sub-floor to take on the final floor finish, to cover underfloor heating pipes or to be left as a wearing floor surface. A correctly laid screed can increase the life of the complete floor and assure its durability, quality and finish. Hand mixing screed is only recommended for small areas, in all other instances a screed pump should be employed to speedily ensure a smooth, even mix of sand, cement and water and to pump this fine mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such.

Dry Lining Ascot: A number of plasterers in Ascot also provide dry lining services, which will be needed in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the procedure by which plasterboard is affixed to a brickwork surface, a timber studding or metal framing to create a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. While you could decorate the plasterboard surface as it is, generally most people prefer to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin coat of plaster to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used, when fixing to a brick or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing plasterboard to wooden joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used.
