Ask to see some photos of previously completed work when talking to prospective Barry plasterers, anyone who knows their stuff will be glad to do this and have nothing to hide. You don't want to get landed with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering. Significant problems can result from substandard plastering, as you'll soon come to realise.

A badly plastered surface will cause serious problems with the installation of kitchen units, any area of tiling, fitting skirting boards and the painting and wallpapering of walls and ceilings.

You should expect nothing less than the perfect finish straight from the trowel. A plastered wall or ceiling should never have to be sanded down to get a nice finish, it should only require a quick rub with fine glasspaper before it is decorated. If a lot of sanding is taking place, the plastering wasn't done competently in the first place. If you hear the buzz of electric sanders, you need to do a thorough quality check.

Plastering and Coving Barry

A common reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times, is to plaster over an artexed ceiling. A widely used decorative finish for ceilings in Barry during the 1970's and 1980's, the popularity of artex has waned in recent times. Covering that artex ceiling with plaster is something that most Barry plasterers will jump at the chance to do in order to make it look more sleek and modern. If however, you would like to bring a bit of that old 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.

Rendering Barry: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to external (and occasionally interior) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resisting qualities, though it's mainly employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is quite possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, a much better alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting end result.

Screeding in Barry

Screeding Barry: A number of plasterers in Barry will also offer floor screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is typically applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be left as a wearing floor surface, to encase underfloor heating pipes or to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as tiles, floor boards or carpet). An effectively laid screed can help to prolong the life of a floor and assure its quality, finish and durability. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used for small areas, in all other instances a screed pump should be used to rapidly produce a smooth, even mixture of cement and sand and to pump this fine mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such.
