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.

Bracknell Plastering and Coving

These days, one of the most common tasks a plasterer is requested to do, is plaster over an artexed ceiling. Many properties in Bracknell had ceilings that were coated with artex during the nineteen seventies and eighties, when it was at its height of popularity. Those old artexed ceilings can be made to look fresh and modern once again by bringing in your Bracknell plasterer to cover them up. It could be that you actually love artex and may want your smooth, featureless ceilings transformed by applying this material. Most plasterers will be just as willing do this for you.

Pebble Dashing Bracknell: Although it isn't to everybodys taste pebbledashing has been around for many years and used to protect and decorate the exterior walls of homes in Bracknell, Berkshire. There are people who specialise in pebble dashing around, but quite often Bracknell plasterers will happily do this sort of work for you. Pebbledashing (or pebble dashing) is a kind of external wall covering normally consisting of 2 layers of a base coat made of sand and lime onto which small gravel or pebbles are firmly pressed to form a tough, decorative and maintenance free finish on both renovated and new buildings.

Dry Lining Bracknell (Plasterboarding): Quite a few plasterers in Bracknell also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is mounted on Gypframe metal framing, a brick surface or a timber studding or joist to form a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst you could paint or decorate the plasterboard finish after a bit of filling, usually most opt to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coating afterwards to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a masonry or brick wall "dot and dab" bonding is used, when fixing to a metal framework self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing plasterboard to wood joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used.
