Rendering Ayr: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mix of sand, cement, lime and water is applied to exterior (and now and again internal) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is quite popular across Europe and is particularly widespread in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire resistant qualities and is water resistant, though it is largely employed for aesthetic purposes. While of course it is possible to paint a rendered surface, an even better option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result.

Screeder Ayr

Screeding Ayr: Several plasterers in Ayr, Scotland also provide a floor screeding service, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is generally put on top of a concrete sub-floor to take on the final floor finish, to cover underfloor heating pipes or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. A correctly laid screed can increase the lifespan of a floor and ensure its quality, finish and durability. Hand mixing screed is only suitable for small areas, otherwise a proper screed pump should be employed to swiftly guarantee a smooth, even mix of sand and cement and to pump this fine mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and other paraphernalia.
