Now there are lots of Birkenhead plasterers to choose from, and you need to find one who knows their stuff.

When a coat of paint is applied to your newly plastered ceilings and walls, the defects will become glaringly obvious. When viewed in bright sunshine, even more imperfections will show up on any uneven surfaces. By using decent plasterers in Birkenhead, you should hopefully avoid problems such as this.

Level and smooth are the main attributes of a plastered surface, because other materials will always be applied to it. A poorly plastered area may lead to major issues with the painting of walls and ceilings, the accurate fitting or skirting boards, bathroom or kitchen tiling and the installation of kitchen units.

The most experienced Birkenhead plasterers will get a perfect finish directly from the trowel. You should never need to sand down a plastered wall or ceiling apart from a quick rub down before decorating. If the plastering has not been done correctly, forceful sanding may be needed, and this calls the plasterers skills into question. The alarm bells should certainly be ringing out if electric sanding machines are being used with any regularity.

Birkenhead Plastering and Coving

One of the most regular tasks for plasterers in recent times, is plastering over old artexed ceilings. The "in" finish for ceilings during the nineteen seventies and eighties, artex is not so widely used in Birkenhead at present. Most plasterers in Birkenhead will be more than happy to plaster over that artex ceiling, to make it look more fresh and contemporary. On the reverse side, many plasterers will also apply artex to your smooth ceilings if you want to bring back that 70's style.

Pebble Dashing Birkenhead: Love it or hate it pebbledashing has been around for many years and used to decorate and protect the outsides of dwellings in Merseyside. There are pebbledashing specialists out there, but often Birkenhead plasterers will gladly do this sort of work for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a kind of exterior wall coating usually consisting of 2 layers of a base coat made of sand and lime into which small gravel, pebbles or shells are firmly pressed to form a strong, maintenance free and decorative finish on both new and refurbished structures.

Dry Lining Birkenhead: Some plasterers in Birkenhead also offer dry lining services, which are needed in plenty of improvement projects. Dry lining is the procedure where plasterboard is attached to a brick or masonry surface, a wood studding or metal Gypframe to form a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst you can paint or decorate the plasterboard finish itself, in general most choose to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used, when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used.
