You should expect nothing less than a perfect, polished finish straight from the trowel. You should never need to sand down a plastered ceiling or wall apart from a quick rub down before decorating. If the plastering hasn't been done properly, strenuous sanding may be needed, and calls the plasterers ability into question. You should check out the quality of the plastering thoroughly, if you see electric sanding machines being used.

Plastering and Coving Basildon

Plastering over an old artex ceiling is a typical reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times. During the 1970's and 80's, artex was the "in" finish for ceilings in Basildon, currently that is not the case. Those artexed ceilings can be made to look sleek and contemporary once again by calling in your Basildon plasterer to cover them up. Most plasterers will also gladly slap on a coat of artex if you'd like to bring back that 70's style to your ceilings.

Rendering Basildon: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process where a mix of lime, cement, sand and water is applied to exterior (and occasionally interior) walls to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is quite popular throughout Europe and is particularly widespread in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire retarding qualities, though it is mostly used for cosmetic purposes. While it is of course possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, a better solution is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.

Pebble Dashing Basildon: Though it isn't to everybodys taste pebble dashing has been used for many years to protect and decorate the outside of houses in Basildon, Essex. There are tradesmen specialise in pebbledashing around, but quite often Basildon plasterers will happily do this type of job for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a kind of exterior wall covering generally consisting of a couple of layers of a base made from sand and lime into which small gravel, pebbles or shells are pressed to form a decorative, maintenance free and strong finish on both renovated and new structures.

Dry Lining Basildon: Certain plasterers in Basildon also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which are required in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the procedure where plasterboard is fixed to Gypframe metal framing, a masonry or brickwork surface or a wooden studding or joist to create a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. Whilst you could decorate the plasterboard surface as it is, in general most like to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used, when fixing to a metal framework self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing plasterboard to wooden joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used.
