It is fairly easy to fill and smooth off any negligible cracking and dents, but it is tricky to hide inherently uneven plaster.

Rendering Bideford

The procedure of applying a mix of cement, lime, sand and water to both interior and exterior walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface finish, is referred to as rendering, and it is a fairly similar trade to plastering. A favoured technique all over Southern Europe, rendering is really prevalent in the Mediterranean area, especially Spain, Greece and Italy. A rendered surface is mostly used for cosmetic reasons but is also waterproof and has some useful fire resistant properties. You can get a longer lasting and more durable result by adding colour to the render mix itself, though it is acceptable to paint a rendered wall. (Tags: Renderers Bideford, Rendering Bideford)

Screeding Bideford

Screeding involves the application of a cement mix, to create a level and smooth floor surface. The pouring of screed is normally done on top of a previously prepared concrete sub-floor to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface, to take on the final floor finish or to cover underfloor heating pipes. Increased finish, quality and durability is the effect of a professionally laid screed. A proper screed pump should be employed to rapidly ensure a smooth, even mix of cement and sand and to pump this perfect mix straight to its required location. The hand mixing of screed is only acceptable for smaller areas.

Artex Bideford

Artexing Bideford Devon

While most common in the 1970's and 1980's artex continues to be an easy way to improve the appearance of a ceiling, particularly a cracked or shabby one. Back in the day, there were so many tradesmen carrying out artexing that it was fairly simple to locate somebody providing this type of service in Bideford. These days however, finding a plasterer who is prepared to tackle artexing is not quite so straightforward. What raised its popularity was the large selection of styles and designs that it was applied in, and it appeared that everyone had their preferred style, maybe it was swirl, circles, stipple, pairs, medusa, criss-cross, basket & roses, bark, hook & line, scroll or broken leather. No matter what your taste was, you could find a style of artex to match. Every one of these artex designs can still be done today if you can find a local artexer or plumber prepared to do it. Avoid handyman types who will just "have a bash". Remember, however, that artex isn't the easiest thing to patch or repair, which is a primary reason why it's popularity declined in the first place.

Skimming Bideford

Plaster Re-Skimming Bideford Devon

A thin coating of plaster spread on top of old damaged plasterwork, new plasterboard or unwanted artex is called re-skimming or skimming. Plasterers are continually asked to carry out this sort of work. Many home refurbishments involve new dry lined walls or inflict damage on pre-existing plastered surfaces. These flawed surfaces can be easily transformed into glass-like and smooth finishes by an expert who's trained in this craft. You need to leave this for several days to dry out thoroughly before you can do any decorating. A perfectly fault-free and flat surface should be the outcome.(Tags: Re-Skimming Bideford, Skimming Bideford, Plaster Skimming Bideford)
