Employing a plasterer who knows exactly what they are doing is the most important thing, so ask potential Chelmsford plasterers if they can show you a portfolio of their accomplished work. You certainly don't want to be employing a "cowboy" for this sort of work. Though it may not always be immediately obvious, poor quality plastering can lead to big problems as work progresses.

Any imperfections in your newly plastered ceilings and walls will soon show up when a splash of paint is applied. When viewed in bright sunlight, even more imperfections will show up on any defective surfaces. To avoid issues like this, pick only from experienced plasterers in Chelmsford.

You need to remember that the plastering is simply a base on which other materials are applied, so it needs to be flat and smooth. A shoddily plastered area will lead to severe complications with the wallpapering and painting of walls and ceilings, the accurate fitting or skirting boards, the fitting of kitchen units and any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms).

Skilled Chelmsford plasterers will get a polished finish right from the trowel. Any professional plasterer will tell you that a correctly plastered ceiling or wall should never need sanding down to achieve a good finish. If too much sanding is taking place, the plastering was not done competently in the first place. If you hear the buzz of orbital sanders, you need to do a thorough quality check.

Chelmsford Plastering and Coving

Plastering over an artex ceiling is one common reason for calling in a plasterer these days. The "in" finish for ceilings in the 1970's and 80's, artex is not so widely used in Chelmsford currently. Covering that dated artex ceiling with plaster is something that most Chelmsford plasterers will gladly do in order to make it look more sleek and modern. Plastering over artex is preferred to removing it because it is pretty hard to take off or repair, which is likely why its popularity waned in the first place.

Screeding Chelmsford: Some plasterers in Essex also provide a floor screeding service, whereby a new level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is usually applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to receive a floor finish (such as tiles, floor boards or carpet), to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface or to cover underfloor heating pipes. A correctly laid screed can help to extend the life of the whole floor and assure its durability, quality and finish. The hand mixing of screed should only be used for smaller areas, and preferably a proper screed pump should be employed to swiftly guarantee a smooth, even mix of cement and sand and to transport (pump) this perfect mix directly to its required location, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and similar paraphernalia.

Pebble Dashing Chelmsford: Love it or hate it pebble dashing has been around for many years and used to decorate and protect the exterior walls of homes in Chelmsford. There are tradesmen specialise in pebble dashing around, but now and again Chelmsford plasterers will do this sort of work for you. Pebbledashing (or pebble dashing) is a kind of exterior wall coating normally consisting of 2 layers of a base coat made of sand and lime into which small gravel, pebbles or shells are firmly pressed to form a maintenance free, decorative and robust finish on both new and renovated buildings.

Dry Lining Chelmsford (Plasterboarding): Certain plasterers in Chelmsford also offer dry lining services, which are needed in plenty of home improvement jobs. Dry lining is the procedure by which plasterboard is mounted on metal framing, a timber studding or a brickwork surface to form a wall surface that does not need plastering. While you may paint or decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, in reality most people opt to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine coat of plaster to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to timber studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a metal frame Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used and when fixing to a masonry or brick wall the "dot and dab" method is used.
