An irregular plastered surface will lead to major difficulties with the painting of ceilings and walls, the tiling of wall surfaces, the fitting of architraves and the fitting of kitchen units.

With plastering it is preferable to get a polished finish, directly from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from the finest Bracknell plasterers. Any professional plasterer will tell you that a properly plastered wall or ceiling should never need sanding down to achieve a good finish. If forceful sanding is required, you can pretty much assume that your plastering has not been done correctly. You should check out the quality of the plastering thoroughly, if you see electric sanders being used.

Plastering and Coving Bracknell

A common reason for calling in a plasterer these days, is to plaster over an artexed ceiling. The "in" finish for ceilings throughout the 1970's and 1980's, artex is not so popular in Bracknell currently. Those old artexed ceilings can be made to look fresh and contemporary once again by bringing in your Bracknell plasterer to cover them up. On the reverse side, most plasterers will also apply artex to your ceiling if you would like to bring back that 1970's style.

Bracknell Screeders

Screeding Bracknell: Several plasterers in Bracknell also provide screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is formed using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is usually applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be left as a wearing floor surface, to cover underfloor heating pipes or to be covered with an appropriate floor finish (such as carpet, tiles or floor boards). A correctly laid screed can considerably lengthen the lifespan of a floor and positively affect its quality, finish and durability. Hand mixing screed must only be used where smaller areas are involved, otherwise a proper screed pump should be employed to swiftly produce an even, smooth mixture of sand, cement and water and to pump this fine mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such.

Dry Lining Bracknell: Certain plasterers in Bracknell also provide dry lining services, which are needed in a lot of home improvements. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is mounted on a brickwork surface, a wood studding or joist or metal framing to produce a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst it is feasible to decorate or paint the plasterboard surface itself, usually most people like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine layer of plaster to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal framework Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used, when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used.

Artexing Bracknell: Even though more common through the Seventies and Eighties artex continues to be a great way to enhance the appearance of ceilings, particularly shabby or cracked ones. It isn't quite as easy to find a plasterer that will do artexing these days, whereas in the good old days there were a number of tradesmen who did little else but artex and artex removal. The thing that boosted its attractiveness was possibly the wide selection of designs that it could be fashioned in, and it seemed to be the case that everybody had their favourite design, maybe it was bark, criss-cross, pairs, medusa, broken leather, hook & line, swirl, stipple, circle, scroll or basket & flowers. No matter what your taste was, you would find an artex style to fit. You can obviously still get any of these artex designs today, simply uncover a local Bracknell plasterer who constantly does this kind of work, rather that one which will simply "have a bash", in this manner you should ensure you will get a proper job made of it. The one disadvantage of artex, and one that triggered its fall in popularity, is that it's hard to repair or patch.
