Plastering Bath

Bath Plasterers: Whether you are looking to have a small section of plaster repaired, a whole room plastered or need the plastering of your entire property in Bath, you will need a seasoned and professional plasterer to manage the project for you. Plasterers can take many years to hone their skills, so plastering isn't really something you can do for yourself.

Plastering work needs to be carried out on an array of home improvement projects, even modest ones. It might be fitting mouldings or coving before decorating, re-plastering a ceiling, skimming a partition or latex screeding. In reality, it may be any of a number of plastering related jobs.

Employing a plasterer who knows exactly what they're up to is the most important thing, so ask potential Bath plasterers if they can show you a portfolio of their accomplished work. Getting saddled with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering is a scenario that you want to avoid no matter what. Though it may not always be immediately apparent, inferior plastering can cause significant problems as work progresses.

Any defects in your freshly plastered walls and ceilings will soon show up when a splash of paint is applied. Uneven surfaces become even more highlighted in bright daylight. It is really a no brainer that you should steer clear of poor tradesmen, and choose only from competent plasterers in Bath.

Plaster always need to be flat and smooth, because it is just a base upon which other materials are applied. An imperfectly plastered area can lead to severe complications with the fitting of skirting boards, any area of wall tiling, the installation of kitchen units and the painting and wallpapering of the surfaces.

You can always tell the busiest Bath plasterers because they consistently get a polished finish, right from the trowel. It shouldn't ever be necessary to use electric sanders on freshly plastered ceilings and walls, just a quick rub down with a fine glasspaper before decorating. If excessive sanding is taking place, the plastering was not done competently in the first place. The alarm bells should definitely start ringing if orbital sanders are being used with any frequency.

Bath Plastering and Coving

These days, one of the most common jobs a plasterer is asked to do, is cover up an artex ceiling. At the height of its popularity in the nineteen seventies and eighties, artex is out of favour in Bath homes today. Your Bath plasterer will gladly cover up those artexed ceilings and get your home looking sleek and contemporary once again. Plastering over artex is preferable to removing it because it is quite hard to take off or repair, which is likely why its popularity has waned.

Rendering Bath: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of lime, sand, cement and water is applied to external (and now and again interior) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is a popular method across Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resisting qualities, although it's predominately used for aesthetic purposes. While of course it is possible to paint a rendered wall, a better option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable result.
