Plasterers Bath

Bath Plasterers: When your home in Bath needs some plastering work doing, it doesn't matter whether substantial or minor, you will be wanting to find an experienced and professional plasterer to do the job with much care and attention.

In actual fact, it could be any one of hundreds of plastering related jobs.

Ask to see some photos of previously completed work when meeting with potential Bath plasterers, anyone who knows their stuff will be happy to do this and have nothing to hide. Getting stuck with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering is a scenario that you want to avoid without exceptions. Though it may not always be immediately obvious, shoddy plastering can cause huge problems later on.

The defects will soon manifest on the newly plastered wall once a coat of paint has been applied to it. This effect will be even more accentuated when the uneven surfaces are viewed in bright sunshine. By picking only from decent plasterers in Bath, you will avoid this issue.

Because plaster is always concealed by other materials it is easy to forget how important it is that it is smooth and level. An imperfectly plastered area could cause major difficulties with the painting of ceilings and walls, the accurate fitting or skirting boards, bathroom or kitchen tiling and the installation of kitchen units.

You should expect nothing less than a perfect, polished finish right from the trowel. A quick rub down before decorating is all that a plastered wall or ceiling should need, it should never require sanding. If any degree of strenuous sanding is needed to smooth the plastered areas, they were not properly done in the first place. If you hear the buzz of electric sanding machines, you need to do a thorough quality check.

Bath Plastering and Coving

Nowadays, a typical reason to call in a plasterer is to cover an old artexed ceiling. At present out of favour in Bath, artex was the most popular decorative finish for ceilings during the 1970's and 80's. To get all your old artexed ceilings looking sleek and modern again, most Bath plasterers will gladly plaster over them. Plastering over artex is preferable to removing it as it is pretty difficult to take off or repair, which is likely why its popularity waned in the first place.

Rendering Bath: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of sand, cement, lime and water is applied to external (and now and again interior) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is popular all over Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resisting qualities, though it's principally used for cosmetic purposes. While it is acceptable to paint a rendered surface, a more effective option is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result. (Tags: Rendering Bath, Renderers Bath)

Pebble Dashing Bath: Some people love it and some people hate it but pebbledashing has been around for many years and used to protect and decorate the exteriors of homes in Bath, Somerset. There are people who specialise in pebbledashing around, but now and again Bath plasterers will gladly do this type of work for you. Pebbledashing (or pebble dashing) is a kind of external wall coating which usually consists of a couple of layers of a base made of lime and sand onto which small gravel or pebbles are pressed to create a decorative, maintenance free and strong finish on both refurbished and new houses.

Plasterboarding Bath (Dry Lining): A number of plasterers in Bath also provide dry lining services, which are needed in a lot of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is attached to a masonry or brickwork surface, metal framing or a timber studding to produce a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst you can decorate the plasterboard finish itself after a bit of filling, in reality most folks opt to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine coat of plaster to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used, when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing plasterboard to wooden stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used.
