Biggleswade Plastering and Coving

Plasterers perform many tasks but one of the most commonplace in recent times, is plastering over artex ceilings. Countless houses in Biggleswade had ceilings which were coated with artex during the 70's and 80's, when it was at its height of popularity. Covering that artex ceiling with plaster is something that most Biggleswade plasterers will jump at the chance to do so as to make it look more sleek and contemporary. On the reverse side, if you want to bring back that 70's style, most plasterers will just as gladly slap some artex on your smooth ceilings.

Rendering Biggleswade: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mixture of lime, cement, sand and water is applied to external (and occasionally internal) walls to achieve a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is extremely popular all around Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish has some fire resisting properties and is water resistant, although it's largely employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is quite possible to paint a rendered surface, a much better alternative is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result.

Screeding Biggleswade: Some plasterers in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire can also provide screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is usually put on over 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 significantly increase the life of the whole floor and ensure its finish, durability and quality. The hand mixing of screed should only be used for small areas, in all other instances a screed pump should be employed to speedily ensure an even, smooth mixture of cement and sand and to pump this perfect mix directly to where its needed, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like.

Dry Lining Biggleswade: Some plasterers in Biggleswade also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which are needed in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is attached to a brick or masonry surface, metal framing or a wood studding or joist to create a wall surface that does not need plastering. While it is feasible to decorate the plasterboard finish as it is, in general most choose to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used, when fixing plasterboard to timber stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal framework Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.
