Buckingham Plasterer

The main thing that you can expect from skilled Buckingham plasterers is a polished finish, straight from the trowel. A plastered wall or ceiling should never need to be sanded down to get a nice finish, it should only require a quick rub with fine glasspaper before it is decorated.

Plastering and Coving Buckingham

Nowadays, one of the most common jobs a plasterer is asked to do, is cover up an old artex ceiling. The "in" finish for ceilings throughout the 1970's and 1980's, artex is not so widely used in Buckingham right now. To give your ceilings that sleek and contemporary look once more, most plasterers in Buckingham will be happy to cover them with plaster. Plastering over artex is preferred to removing it as it is pretty difficult to take off or repair, which is probably why its popularity waned in the first place.


Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of cement, sand, lime and water is applied to exterior (and now and again internal) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is extremely popular across Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire resisting properties and is waterproof, though it's generally used for cosmetic purposes. While it is quite possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a much better solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result.


Screeder BuckinghamMany plasterers in Buckingham, Buckinghamshire will also provide a floor screeding service, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a cement mix. Screeding is usually put on top of a concrete sub-floor to receive a floor finish (such as tiles, floor boards or carpet), to be left as a wearing floor surface or to encase underfloor heating pipes. A properly laid screed can considerably prolong the lifespan of a floor and establish its quality, finish and durability. Hand mixing screed must only be used where small areas are involved, and preferably a screed pump should be used to rapidly produce an even, smooth blend of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this fine mix straight to its required location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like.
