Rendering Berkhamsted: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mix of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to external (and occasionally interior) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is very popular throughout Europe and is particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire retarding qualities, although it is largely used for cosmetic purposes. While it is of course possible to paint a rendered surface, a more effective solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.

Berkhamsted Screeders

Screeding Berkhamsted: Many plasterers in Hertfordshire can also offer screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is generally put on top of a concrete sub-floor to take on the final floor finish, to encase underfloor heating pipes or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. A correctly laid screed can help to increase the lifespan of a floor and positively affect its quality, durability and finish. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used where small areas are involved, in all other instances a screed pump should be used to swiftly produce a smooth, even mix of sand and cement and to pump this fine mix straight to its required location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like. There are different kinds of floor screeding available in Berkhamsted, therefore you should ask about which is suitable for your particular project, you will need to choose from bonded screed, structural screed, fast drying screed, free-flowing screed, traditional screed, unbonded screed and floor levelling compound.
