You must never forget that the plastering is the base upon which other materials are applied, so it needs to be smooth and flat.

Camborne Plasterer

The aim of the most skillful Camborne plasterers is to get a perfect, polished finish straight from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less. Sanding (especially with machine tools) should never be necessary on newly plastered ceilings and walls, a quick rub down with fine glasspaper is all that should be needed. If the finished plastering needs strenuous sanding, you know that it has not been done properly. If orbital sanders are being used you need to check out the quality of the plastering meticulously.

Camborne Plastering and Coving

Whilst you may call on the services of a plasterer for many tasks, a common reason in recent times is for plastering over old artexed ceilings. At present out of favour in Camborne, artex was the most fashionable decorative finish for ceilings during the nineteen seventies and eighties. Most plasterers in Camborne will jump at the chance to plaster over that dated artex ceiling, to make it look more sleek and contemporary. Those of you who are more retro in taste might wish to have your artex ceilings repaired and brought back to their former glory.

Rendering Camborne: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mixture of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes interior) walls to achieve a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is particularly widespread in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resistant qualities, though it is mainly employed for aesthetic purposes. While of course it is possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, a much better solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.

Screeding Camborne: Several plasterers in Cornwall can also offer floor screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is generally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be covered with a floor finish (such as tiles, carpet or floor boards), to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface or to cover underfloor heating pipes. An effectively laid screed can prolong the lifespan of the whole floor and establish its quality, finish and durability. The hand mixing of screed should only be used where small areas are involved, and preferably a screed pump should be employed to quickly guarantee an even, smooth mix of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this fine mix directly to where its needed, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like.

Pebble Dashing Camborne: Some people love it and some people hate it but pebbledashing has been around for many years and used to decorate and protect the external walls of properties in Camborne, Cornwall.
