The most important thing is to employ a plasterer who knows exactly what they're doing and has a portfolio of successfully completed jobs that they can show you. Plastering requires a focused attitude and shouldn't be attempted by "cowboys". It is really difficult to correct substandard plastering after the event, so it needs to be done right from the outset.

Any defects will become blindingly obvious once some paint starts going on to your newly plastered walls and ceilings. They will likely look even worse with the sun shining on them. So, make sure you only consider experienced plasterers in Braintree.

You must never forget that the plastering is the base upon which other materials are applied, so it must be level and smooth. An unevenly plastered area will cause serious complications with bathroom or kitchen tiling, fitting architraves, the wallpapering and painting of ceilings and walls and the fitting of kitchen units.

The main thing that you can expect from experienced Braintree plasterers is a polished finish, straight from the trowel. Sanding (especially by machine) should never be necessary on newly plastered walls and ceilings, a quick rub down with fine glasspaper is all that should be needed. If the plastering has not been done properly, vigorous sanding may be needed, and this calls the plasterers ability into question. The alarm bells should certainly be ringing out if power sanders are being utilized with any regularity.

Braintree Plastering and Coving

Nowadays, one common reason to call in a plasterer is to cover an artexed ceiling. Artex was at its height of popularity in Braintree during the seventies and eighties, but at present it is not so fashionable. To give your ceilings that fresh and modern look once again, most plasterers in Braintree will be more than happy to cover them with plaster. Plastering over artex is preferred to removing it as it is pretty difficult to get off or repair, which is likely why its popularity has waned.

Screeding Braintree: Several plasterers in Braintree also offer floor screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is formed using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is generally put on over a rougher concrete sub-floor to be covered with an appropriate floor finish (such as floor boards, carpet or tiles), to encase underfloor heating pipes or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. A correctly laid screed can considerably extend the life of a floor and positively affect its finish, durability and quality. Hand mixing screed is only acceptable for smaller areas, in all other instances a proper screed pump should be used to speedily guarantee a smooth, even mix of cement and sand and to transport (pump) this fine mix directly to where its needed, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such. There are several different sorts of floor screed available in Braintree, so you should inquire to find which is appropriate for your particular project, you'll be choosing from floor levelling compound, unbonded screed, structural screed, traditional screed, free-flowing screed, bonded screed and fast drying screed.

Dry Lining Braintree: Many plasterers in Braintree also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is fixed to a wood studding or joist, Gypframe metal framing or a brickwork surface to produce a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. While you can paint or decorate the plasterboard finish after a bit of filling, generally most people like to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat afterwards to give it that extra special, smooth 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 wall the "dot and dab" method is used.
