Burslem Plastering and Coving

Plastering over an artexed ceiling is a typical reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times. At present somewhat out of favour in Burslem, artex was the most fashionable decorative finish for ceilings during the 1970's and 80's. Covering that artex ceiling with plaster is something that most Burslem plasterers will be more than happy to do in order to make it look more sleek and contemporary. Plastering over artex is preferable to removing it because it is pretty tricky to get off or repair, which is doubtless why its popularity has waned.

Rendering Burslem: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mix of cement, sand, lime and water is applied to external (and now and again interior) walls to achieve a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resistant qualities, though it is generally employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is quite possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, a much better solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable finish.
