Decorative Plastering Bexhill-on-Sea

Plastering is by no means a modern innovation and was being done by the ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Romans countless years ago. Mixtures of mud and clay were applied in those long past days.

Screeding

Screeding Bexhill-on-Sea East Sussex UK (TN38 and TN39)

Screeding involves the spreading of a cement mix, to create a new level floor surface. Screeding is usually put on top of a concrete sub-floor to cover underfloor heating pipes, to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface or to receive a floor finish (such as tiles, vinyl or wood). This will help to prolong the lifespan of the complete floor and establish its quality, finish and durability, for several years. The mixing of screed by hand is only recommended for smaller areas, in all other cases a screed pump should be used to speedily ensure a smooth, even mix of sand and cement and to pump this perfect mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the use of wheelbarrows and other paraphernalia. Among the many different kinds of screeds are: traditional screed, bonded screed, structural screed, free-flowing screed, fast drying screed, unbonded screed and floor levelling compound.

What is Plaster?

A commonly used building material which is used for protecting and decorating wall and ceiling surfaces, plaster has been around thousands of years. What we call "plaster" in Bexhill-on-Sea is usually thought of as the material which is used for covering the interior rooms of buildings and homes, while that which is used externally is known as "render" or "rendering". The plaster blend itself may contain different ingredients but most frequently comprise of either lime, cement, or gypsum. All of these mixtures work in a similar way, but are used for different things. Mixed together with water to form a stiff, easily workable paste, plaster is simply a fine, dry powder when manufactured. The reaction between the plaster and water generates heat through crystallization and the mix then hardens. (Tags: Plastering Bexhill-on-Sea, Plaster Bexhill-on-Sea, Render Bexhill-on-Sea)

Dry Lining (Plasterboarding)

There are a lot of home renovation assignments that will need dry lining to be carried out, and a handful of Bexhill-on-Sea plasterers will be willing to do this for you. By mounting plasterboard onto a masonry or brickwork surface, a metal framework or a timber studding or joist, an acceptable wall surface is created that doesn't need to be plastered. Whilst you could decorate the plasterboard finish itself, normally most folks opt to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine layer of plaster to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when attaching to a metal frame self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used, when attaching plasterboard to wood stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used.
