It is always important to keep in mind that plaster has to be flat and smooth, because it is just a base on which other materials are applied. An unevenly plastered area can cause serious difficulties with the accurate fitting or skirting boards, the fitting of kitchen units, the tiling of wall surfaces and the painting and wallpapering of ceilings and walls.

A perfect finish, directly from the trowel is what you can expect from the most sought after Ashton-under-Lyme plasterers. Any professional plasterer will tell you that a properly plastered wall or ceiling should never need sanding down to achieve a nice finish. Actually, if any substantial amount of sanding is required, you can assume that your plasterer was not as skilled as you imagined. The alarm bells should certainly start ringing out if electric sanders are being used with any regularity.

Ashton-under-Lyme Plastering and Coving

These days, a typical reason to call in a plasterer is to cover an artex ceiling. A widely used form of finish in Ashton-under-Lyme during the Nineteen Seventies and Eighties, artex is to some degree out of favour at present. To make your dated artex ceiling look more sleek and modern, most plasterers in Ashton-under-Lyme will jump at the chance to plaster over it. On the other hand, most plasterers will also apply artex to your ceiling if you want to bring back that 1970's style.

Rendering Ashton-under-Lyme: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to exterior (and now and again interior) walls to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is a popular method throughout Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish has some fire resistant qualities and is water resistant, although it is mainly used for aesthetic purposes. While it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a more effective alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable result.

Dry Lining Ashton-under-Lyme (Plasterboarding): Quite a few plasterers in Ashton-under-Lyme also offer dry lining services, which are required in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the procedure by which plasterboard is attached to metal Gypframe, a timber studding or a brick or masonry surface to produce a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. While it's feasible to decorate the plasterboard finish itself after a bit of filling, in general most opt to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin coat of plaster to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal Gypframe Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used, when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing plasterboard to wood studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used.
