With plastering it is preferable to get a polished finish, straight from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from top notch Basingstoke plasterers. You should never need to sand down a plastered ceiling or wall apart from a quick rub down before decorating. If excessive sanding is taking place, the plastering was not done competently in the first place. There is certainly something amiss with your plasterer, if you hear the buzz of power sanders.

If however, you would like to bring a bit of that 70's style back into your home, most plasterers will be just as glad to apply artex as they are to cover it up.

Plasterboarding Basingstoke (Dry Lining): A few plasterers in Basingstoke also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which are needed in plenty of home improvement projects. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is attached to Gypframe metal framing, a wood studding or joist or a brick or masonry surface to form a wall surface that does not need plastering. Whilst it's feasible to decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, usually most folks choose to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coating to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a masonry or brick wall the "dot and dab" method is used, when fixing plasterboard to wooden studding or joists, drywall screws or nails are used and when fixing to a metal framework Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.
