The aim of the busiest Bedworth plasterers is to get a perfect, polished finish right from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less. Sanding is not something you should ever have to do with a freshly plastered ceiling or wall, just a quick rub down with fine glasspaper. If strenuous sanding is required, you can safely assume that the plastering has not been done properly. If you hear the buzz of orbital sanders, you need to do a thorough quality check.

Plastering and Coving Bedworth

One of the most requested tasks for plasterers nowadays, is plastering over old artex ceilings. The "in" finish for ceilings in the 1970's and 80's, artex is not so widely used in Bedworth currently. Covering that dated artex ceiling with plaster is something that most Bedworth plasterers will be more than happy to do so as to make it look more sleek and modern. Plastering over artex is preferred to removing it because it is quite difficult to get off or repair, which is likely why its popularity has waned.

Rendering Bedworth: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of lime, cement, sand and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes interior) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire retarding properties and is water resistant, although it's principally employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is acceptable to paint a rendered wall, a better solution is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable result.

Pebble Dashing Bedworth: Although it is not everyone's cup of tea pebbledashing has been around for many years and used to protect and decorate the exterior walls of houses in Warwickshire. There are people who specialise in pebbledashing out there, but usually Bedworth plasterers will happily do this sort of job for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a type of exterior wall covering that normally consists of two layers of a base coat made from sand and lime into which small pebbles, gravel or shells are pressed to create a maintenance free, decorative and strong finish on both refurbished and new buildings.

Plasterboarding Bedworth (Dry Lining): Quite a few plasterers in Bedworth also provide dry lining services, which are required in a lot of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is attached to a brick surface, a wood studding or Gypframe metal framing to produce a wall surface that does not need plastering. Whilst you may paint or decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, generally most folks like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal Gypframe Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used, when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing plasterboard to timber joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used.
