A certain amount of plastering work can be generated by even the most basic home improvement projects.

Before any work begins you need to check out prospective Cheltenham plasterers to see if they know their stuff. Ask to see some photos or a portfolio of completed projects. You don't want to get landed with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering. It is really difficult to correct poor quality plastering after the event, so it needs to be done properly from the outset.

It is when the painting and decorating commences that any defects become blindingly obvious. This effect will be even more highlighted when the defective surfaces are viewed in bright sunlight. So, make sure you only consider decent plasterers in Cheltenham.

Being smooth and level is the most important attribute for plastered surfaces, since they are just a base upon which other materials are applied. An imperfectly plastered area can cause major difficulties with the painting and wallpapering of walls and ceilings, any area of wall tiling, the fitting of architraves and the installation of kitchen units.

Cheltenham Plasterer

Professional Cheltenham plasterers have their reputations to keep up and will always aim to get a perfect, polished finish directly from the trowel, whenever possible. Ceilings and walls that have been plastered by a professional, should never need to be sanded down. If too much sanding is taking place, the plastering wasn't done competently in the first place. The alarm bells should certainly start ringing if electric sanders are being used with any regularity.

Cheltenham Plastering and Coving

Nowadays, one of the most common jobs a plasterer is asked to do, is cover up an artex ceiling. At present out of favour in Cheltenham, artex was the most widely used decorative finish for ceilings during the 1970's and 1980's. To make your artex ceiling look more fresh and modern, most plasterers in Cheltenham will jump at the chance to plaster over it. If however, you want to bring a bit of that 70's style back into your home, most plasterers will be just as glad to apply artex as they are to plaster over it.

Screeding Cheltenham Gloucestershire

Screeding Cheltenham: Many plasterers in Gloucestershire can also provide floor screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is generally put on top of a concrete sub-floor to take on the final floor finish, to encase underfloor heating pipes or to be left as a wearing floor surface. A correctly laid screed can help to prolong the life of a floor and establish its finish, quality and durability. Hand mixing screed must only be used where smaller areas are involved, in all other instances a screed pump should be used to speedily guarantee a smooth, even mixture of sand, cement and water and to transport (pump) this fine mix directly to its required location, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like. There are a number of different sorts of floor screeding available in Cheltenham, so you need to enquire about which is appropriate for your particular project, you'll need to choose from floor levelling compound, bonded screed, free-flowing screed, fast drying screed, traditional screed, unbonded screed and structural screed.
