Plasterers Christchurch

Christchurch Plasterers: Plastering jobs come in all sizes and shapes and no matter how large or small, you'll want to track down an experienced and professional plasterer to work on your property in Christchurch. Perfecting the art of plastering can take many years of practise, so it isn't a job you can do yourself unless you are really confident in what you are doing.

Plastering work needs to be carried out on an assortment of home improvement projects, even small ones. It could be plaster skimming a dry lined partition, re-plastering a ceiling, latex screeding or fitting coving or cornices before decorating. The truth is, it might possibly be any one of a number of plastering related chores.

The most important thing is to hire a plasterer who knows what they're up to and has a portfolio of successfully completed jobs that they can show you. Plastering requires a methodical attitude and shouldn't be done by "cowboys". You'll soon come to realise the many problems that can arise as a result of inferior plastering.

Any defects in your freshly plastered walls and ceilings will soon show up when a splash of paint is applied. Your freshly plastered surfaces will appear even worse with the sun shining on them. When you've got the choice between experienced plasterers in Christchurch and poor ones, always use a competent one.

Since plaster is always concealed with other materials it is easy to forget how crucial it is that it is smooth and flat. A shoddily plastered surface could cause major complications with bathroom or kitchen tiling, the painting of the surfaces, the fitting of skirting boards and the installation of kitchen units.

You can always tell the most experienced Christchurch plasterers because they almost always get a polished finish, straight from the trowel. Walls and ceilings that have been plastered by a professional, should never need to be sanded down. If the plastering has not been done correctly, strenuous sanding may be needed, and this calls the plasterers ability into question. If orbital sanders are being used you might want to check the quality of the work meticulously.

Plastering and Coving Christchurch

Plastering over artexed ceilings is among the most common reasons for calling on the services of plasterers in recent times. Right now somewhat out of favour in Christchurch, artex was the most popular decorative finish for ceilings during the nineteen seventies and eighties. Most plasterers in Christchurch will be happy to plaster over that old artex ceiling, to make it look more fresh and contemporary. Those of you who are more retro in taste might wish to have your artex ceilings restored and brought back to their former glory.

Rendering Christchurch: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process where a mixture of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to exterior (and occasionally internal) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is very popular throughout Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish has some fire resisting qualities and is water resistant, although it is mainly used for cosmetic purposes. While it is of course possible to paint a rendered surface, an even better alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result.

Screeding Christchurch Dorset

Screeding Christchurch: Some plasterers in Christchurch, Dorset also provide floor screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a cement mix. Screeding is normally put on top of a concrete sub-floor to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface, to cover underfloor heating pipes or to take on the final floor finish. An effectively laid screed can significantly prolong the lifespan of a floor and positively affect its finish, durability and quality. The hand mixing of screed is only acceptable for small areas, in all other instances a screed pump should be employed to rapidly guarantee an even, smooth blend of sand, cement and water and to transport (pump) this perfect mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such.

Artexing Christchurch DorsetArtexing Christchurch: Though more common throughout the 1970's and 1980's artex still is a decent way to improve the appearance of ceilings, in particular cracked or shabby ones. It's not quite as easy to find a plasterer that will undertake artexing these days, whereas at one time there were numerous tradesmen who did very little else but artexing and artex removal. What helped its popularity was possibly the large range of designs it could be applied in, and it seemed to be the case that everybody had their favourite, perhaps it might have been hook & line, basket & roses, swirl, broken leather, criss-cross, medusa, bark, scroll, stippled, circles or pairs. Whatever your taste, there seemed to be an artex style to fit. Obviously you can still get all these styles nowadays, simply look for a plasterer in Christchurch who constantly does this sort of work, and not one who'll simply "have a go", in this manner you should ensure you will get a good job made of it. The only snag with artex, and one that led to its fall in popularity, is that it is really difficult to repair or patch.
