There aren't that many home improvement projects that do not demand at least a bit of plastering work.

In actual fact, it may possibly be any of dozens of plastering related tasks.

Plasterers Brighouse

The most important detail is to hire a plasterer who knows what they are up to and has a portfolio of successfully completed jobs that they can show you. At all costs, you want to avoid hiring "cowboys" for work of this kind. Even poor quality plastering can sometimes look reasonable at first, but as work progresses, the problems start.

Any defects will become blindingly obvious as soon as some paint starts going on to your freshly plastered walls and ceilings. When viewed in bright sunshine, even more imperfections will show up on any defective surfaces. It is really a no brainer that you should steer clear of dodgy tradesmen, and choose only from competent plasterers in Brighouse.

Being smooth and flat is the most important attribute for plastered surfaces, since they are just a base onto which other materials are applied. An unevenly plastered surface will lead to major difficulties with bathroom or kitchen tiling, the installation of kitchen units, the decorating of walls and ceilings and the accurate fitting or skirting boards.

You should expect nothing less than a polished finish directly from the trowel. Ceilings and walls that have been plastered by a professional, should never need to be sanded down. If your finished plastering needs vigorous sanding, you know that it hasn't been done correctly. You should be very suspicious if you see the orbital sanders coming out or their boxes.

Plastering and Coving Brighouse

Whilst you may call on the services of a plasterer for many different tasks, a typical reason in recent times is for plastering over artex ceilings. Many homes in Brighouse had ceilings that were coated with artex during the nineteen seventies and eighties, when it was the height of fashion. So as to get your ceilings looking sleek and contemporary once again, your Brighouse plasterer will be more than happy to cover them up with a smooth new finish. It might be that you actually like artex and may want your smooth, featureless ceilings transformed by applying this material. Most plasterers will just as gladly do this for you.

Rendering Brighouse: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mixture of lime, sand, cement and water is applied to external (and now and again interior) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is a popular method across Europe and is particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire retarding properties, though it is mostly employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is of course possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a much better option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result.

Pebble Dashing Brighouse: Love it or hate it pebbledashing has been around for many years and used to protect and decorate the exterior walls of dwellings in West Yorkshire. There are pebbledashing specialists around, but from time to time Brighouse plasterers will gladly do this type of work for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a kind of exterior wall coating generally consisting of a couple of layers of a base coat made of sand and lime onto which small gravel, pebbles or shells are pressed to form a maintenance free, strong and decorative finish on both renovated and new buildings.

Dry Lining Brighouse: Certain plasterers in Brighouse also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which are required in plenty of improvement projects. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is mounted on metal Gypframe, a brickwork surface or a timber studding or joist to create a wall surface that does not need plastering. While you could decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, in reality most opt 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 brick or masonry wall "dot and dab" drywall adhesive is used, when fixing plasterboard to timber stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used and when fixing to a metal frame self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.
