Plasterers Barnstaple

But of course, any one of numerous plastering related jobs could be necessary.

Level and smooth are the main attributes of plastering, since other materials or products will always be applied to it. Small cracks and dents may be easily filled later with few issues, but uneven plastering is tricky to disguise. A badly plastered surface could cause severe difficulties with any area of tiling (bathrooms or kitchens), the decorating of the surfaces, the fitting of skirting boards and the fitting of kitchen units.

You should be expecting nothing less than a perfect, polished finish directly from the trowel. You should not need to sand down a plastered wall or ceiling apart from a quick rub down before you decorate. You may realistically expect some spots that need a bit of work with sandpaper, but not to any significant degree. If you see the orbital sanders coming out you should be very wary.

Dry Lining (Plasterboarding) Barnstaple

Dry lining is quite often needed in home refurbishment projects, and you should be able to find lots of plasterers in Barnstaple who can offer this particular service. Dry lining is the procedure where plasterboard is affixed to a wooden studding, a brick surface or metal framing to form a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Although in a few instances the plasterboard itself can be decorated (with a little extra preparation), an extremely fine, durable surface is generated by applying a final skim of finishing plaster. With regards to fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wood studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a metal Gypframe Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used and when attaching to a masonry or brick wall the "dot and dab" method is used.

Artexing

Artexing Barnstaple Devon

Especially popular during the 70's and 80's, artex has long been an excellent way to add a decorative finish to a ceiling, as well as to disguise cracks and uneven surfaces. While previously there were many tradesmen who did little else but artexing and artex removal, currently it's not quite so easy to track down a plasterer who'll deal with artexing. The thing that improved its attractiveness was the broad range of styles and designs it could be fashioned in, and it appeared to be the case that everyone had their preferred style, maybe it was pairs, scroll, medusa, bark, basket weave, broken leather, circle, swirl, criss-cross, hook & line or stipple. There was an artex pattern to suit, no matter what your tastes. It is of course still perfectly possible to get any one of these artex ceiling patterns done today, you will simply have to locate a craftsman (a plasterer and not a handyman) prepared to tackle it. The main pitfall with artex, and what probably triggered its drop in popularity, is that it is quite difficult to patch or repair.
