Plasterers Brackley

Brackley Plasterers: Any time you're engaged in improvements or refurbishments on your house in Brackley it is almost guaranteed that you'll either need to have some existing plaster walls patched up or some fresh plaster applied to a new wall surface. The fact is that plastering is a really skillful trade and although you may be fairly handy at DIY, it's not really something that you should attempt on your own, except if you are confident in your abilities. This is even more important if there is a ceiling that needs skimming, because you will probably get yourself and your property in a bit of a mess if you should try this. You would be wise to call in a qualified plasterer to handle this type of job, and whilst you should have no difficulty finding a plasterer in Brackley, finding one who's got a slot to fit you in might be somewhat more challenging. Plasterers, much like many craftsmen, are usually in demand, thus if feasible aim to book someone in a few weeks in advance.

The best Brackley plasterers have their reputations to keep up and will always seek to get a polished finish straight from the trowel, wherever feasible. Heavy sanding is not a process that you should ever have to do on a newly plastered wall or ceiling, only a brief rub down with very fine paper. You may realistically expect some areas that need a bit of work with sandpaper, but not to any great extent. If you hear the loud buzz of orbital sanders, you need to do a thorough quality check.

At present somewhat out of favour in Brackley, artex was the most widely used decorative finish for ceilings during the 1970's and 80's.

Rendering Brackley

Rendering is the method whereby a mixture of lime, sand, cement and water is put on to walls (both exterior and interior), to achieve a textured or smooth surface, using a technique that is not dissimilar to plastering. Rendering is a popular method throughout Europe and is particularly widespread in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered surface is mainly used for aesthetic purposes but is also waterproof and has some useful fire resistant properties. You can obtain a longer lasting and more resilient result by colouring the render mix itself, though it is acceptable to apply paint to a rendered surface.

Artexing Brackley

Artexing Brackley Northamptonshire

Especially popular in the seventies and eighties, artex has long been an easy way to add an ornamental finish to a plastered ceiling, and also to disguise cracks and uneven surfaces. Whilst years ago you could find plenty of tradesmen who did little else but artex and artex repairs, currently it isn't quite so easy to locate a plasterer that will deal with artexing. Undoubtedly the huge variety of designs was the thing that made it so widely loved, and everybody appeared to have their favourite, be it criss-cross, bark, medusa, broken leather, circle, swirl, hook & line, basket, scroll, stippled or pairs. No matter what your taste was, you could find a design of artex to match. All of these artex designs can still be done today if you are able to find an artexer of plumber willing to do it. Avoid handyman type people who offer to "have a go". Having said that, it ought to be pointed out that artex is fairly challenging to repair or patch up and it's almost certainly because of this that its popularity diminished.
