Before any work begins you need to check out potential Borehamwood plasterers to see if they know their stuff. Ask to see some photos or a portfolio of completed projects. You don't want to get landed with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering. Poor quality plastering is worse than no plastering at all, as it is very difficult to put right later.

Any imperfections will become glaringly obvious as soon as some paint starts going on to your newly plastered walls and ceilings. In bright daylight your defective plastered surfaces will look even worse. It is really a no brainer that you should avoid poor tradesmen, and pick only from decent plasterers in Borehamwood.

Being simply a base onto which other materials are applied, means that plastered surfaces must be flat and smooth above all else. A poorly plastered area can cause major issues with the fitting of kitchen units, the accurate fitting or skirting boards, any area of tiling and the wallpapering and painting of the surfaces.

The main thing that you can expect from the most experienced Borehamwood plasterers is a polished finish, directly from the trowel. You can recognize when plastering has been done by an expert, because a quick rub down is all that is needed and no sanding is necessary. In fact, if any significant amount of sanding is required, you can assume that your plasterer was not as skilled as you expected. If the use of electric sanders is becomes a regular thing, there is definately something amiss with your plasterer.

Borehamwood Plastering and Coving

Plastering over an artex ceiling is one common reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times. At the height of fashion in the 1970's and 1980's, artex is less desirable in Borehamwood homes today. To get all your old artexed ceilings looking sleek and contemporary again, most Borehamwood plasterers will jump at the chance to plaster over them. Those of you who are more retro in taste might want your artex ceilings repaired and brought back to their former glory.

Rendering Borehamwood: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to external (and now and again internal) walls to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resisting properties, although it is mostly employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is quite possible to paint a rendered wall, a more effective solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.

Screeding in Borehamwood

Screeding Borehamwood: A few plasterers in Hertfordshire can also provide screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is normally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to receive a floor finish (such as carpet, vinyl, tiles or floor boards), to be left as a wearing floor surface or to encase underfloor heating pipes. A correctly laid screed can considerably lengthen the life of the complete floor and ensure its finish, quality and durability. Hand mixing screed must only be used where small areas are involved, otherwise a screed pump should be employed to swiftly ensure an even, smooth mixture of cement and sand and to transport (pump) this perfect mix straight to its exact location, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and other equipment.

Pebble Dashing Borehamwood: Love it or hate it pebbledashing has been around for many years and used to decorate and protect the outside of homes in Hertfordshire. There are pebble dashing specialists out there, but usually Borehamwood plasterers will be willing to do this sort of work for you. Pebbledashing (or pebble dashing) is a form of exterior wall coating typically consisting of 2 layers of a base coat made of lime and sand into which small gravel, pebbles or shells are pressed to form an attractive, maintenance free and robust finish on both new and refurbished homes.

Dry Lining Borehamwood: Quite a few plasterers in Borehamwood also offer dry lining services, which will be needed in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is attached to a masonry or brickwork surface, Gypframe metal framing or a timber studding or joist to produce a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst you can decorate or paint the plasterboard surface after a bit of filling, normally most people opt to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coating afterwards to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wood joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" bonding is used and when fixing to a metal Gypframe Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.

Plaster Borehamwood: Plaster is a common building material used for protecting or decorating ceilings and walls in Borehamwood, and for the production of decorative elements. In the UK the term "plaster" usually pertains to a material which is applied to the interior of homes, while the material used on exterior areas is referred to as "render". The most common types of plaster primarily contain either gypsum, lime, or cement, but all basically work in the same way. Plaster is is produced in powdered form and when required, is blended with water to make a stiff but easy to work paste just prior to application. The reaction between the plaster and water generates heat through crystallization and the mix subsequently hardens. (Tags: Plastering Borehamwood, Plaster Borehamwood, Render Borehamwood)
