You should expect nothing less than the perfect finish directly from the trowel. It shouldn't ever be necessary to use electric sanders on freshly plastered ceilings and walls, just a quick rub down with a fine glasspaper before decorating. If any degree of vigorous sanding is needed to smooth the plastered areas, they were not properly done in the first place. There is definately something amiss with your plasterer, if you hear the buzz of power sanders.

Plastering and Coving Chesterfield

One of the most requested tasks for plasterers nowadays, is plastering over artex ceilings. Many homes in Chesterfield had ceilings that were coated with artex during the seventies and eighties, when it was the height of fashion. Those artex ceilings can be made to look sleek and modern once again by calling in your Chesterfield plasterer to cover them up. Those of you who are more retro in taste might wish to have your artex ceilings restored and brought back to their former glory.

Screeding Chesterfield: A number of plasterers in Chesterfield will also offer screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is usually applied over a rougher concrete sub-floor to cover underfloor heating pipes, to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as floor boards, carpet or tiles) or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. An effectively laid screed can extend the life of the whole floor and establish its finish, durability and quality. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used for smaller areas, otherwise a proper screed pump should be used to rapidly ensure an even, smooth mixture of sand, cement and water and to transport (pump) this perfect mix directly to its required location, avoiding the use of wheelbarrows and similar equipment.

Plasterboarding Chesterfield (Dry Lining): Some plasterers in Chesterfield also provide dry lining services, which will be required in a lot of home improvements. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is affixed to a brick surface, metal framing or a wood studding or joist to form a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. Whilst you could paint or decorate the plasterboard surface itself, usually most choose to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat afterwards to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal frame self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used, when fixing to a brick or masonry wall "dot and dab" bonding compound is used and when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used.
