Any decent Barnsley plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some photographs) of successfully accomplished jobs, ask to see it so you can make sure they know their stuff. You do not want to get landed with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering. Even poor quality plastering can sometimes look reasonable at first, but later on, the complications start.

When your newly plastered wall is given a splash of paint, any defects will soon become noticeable. They will probably look even worse with the sun shining on them. It should always be possible to find competent plasterers in Barnsley, so why pick an inferior one?

Flat and smooth are the key attributes of a plastered surface, since other materials will always be applied to it. An unevenly plastered surface will lead to major problems with the installation of kitchen units, any area of wall tiling, the fitting of skirting boards and the painting and decorating of the surfaces.

The aim of skilled Barnsley plasterers is to get a perfect, polished finish straight from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less. It should never be necessary to use electric sanding machines on newly plastered walls and ceilings, just a quick rub down with a fine glasspaper before decorating. You might reasonably expect some spots that need a little work with sandpaper, but not to any great extent. You should check out the quality of the plastering meticulously, if you see power sanders being used.

Barnsley Plastering and Coving

One of the most requested tasks for plasterers in recent times, is plastering over artexed ceilings. There are still thousands of ceilings in Barnsley that are decorated with this once popular finish. So as to get your ceilings looking sleek and contemporary once again, your Barnsley plasterer will be happy to cover them up with a smooth new finish. If you're more retro in your taste, you may want to give your currently smooth ceilings some character by actually putting on some artex.

Rendering Barnsley: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process where a mix of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to exterior (and occasionally internal) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is a popular method all around Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish has some fire retarding qualities and is waterproof, though it is mostly used for aesthetic purposes. While it is possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, a more effective solution is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result.

Screeding in Barnsley

Screeding Barnsley: Certain plasterers in Barnsley, South Yorkshire will also offer screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is usually put on top of a concrete sub-floor to encase underfloor heating pipes, to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as floor boards, tiles or carpet) or to be left as a wearing floor surface. An effectively laid screed can help to extend the lifespan of the complete floor and positively affect its quality, finish and durability. Hand mixing screed is only acceptable for smaller areas, in all other cases a proper screed pump should be used to swiftly produce a smooth, even mix of sand and cement and to pump this perfect mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and other paraphernalia.
