Rendering Clacton-on-Sea

Wall Rendering Clacton-on-Sea UK

Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process where a mix of cement, sand, lime and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes interior) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is very popular throughout Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered surface is mainly employed for aesthetic purposes but is also waterproof and has got some useful fire retardant properties. You can obtain a longer lasting and more durable finished surface by colouring the render mix itself, even though of course it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall.

Decorative Plastering Services Clacton-on-Sea Essex UK

Plaster has been practiced for both functional and decorative objectives ever since the times of the ancient Romans. The materials used would certainly have been different in those long past days, when mixtures of both mud and clay would have been employed. In thirteenth Century London, a form of plaster was placed on the internal walls of buildings to help prevent fires from spreading. During the Victorian and Georgian eras huge steps occurred to create elaborate features and mouldings out of gypsum or plaster of Paris, as you'll observe when you go to visit buildings from this time. Stunning decorative effects by the use of modern materials combined with age-old techniques can be produced by skilled plasterers today. Such decoration take a variety of forms and may involve the installation of ceiling roses, cornices, coving, niches, dentils, corbels and brackets.

Polished Plastering Clacton-on-Sea

Polished Plaster Clacton-on-Sea (CO15)

Rather fashionable these days, polished plaster is a modern day variant of classic Italian plaster finishes. The term "Polished Plaster" is usually used to cover a rather wide number of premium quality plaster finishes, from rugged looking textured plasters to very highly polished Venetian, Lucidato and Marmorino plasters. Used mostly on interior walls and ceilings, polished plaster is intended to supply a surface finish that seems like polished limestone, marble or travertine. It delivers a feeling of depth using natural variations in shade whilst remaining sleek and smooth to touch. Special customised finishes can be created by blending these various types of plasters. With the use of natural or artificial colourants polished plaster can be given appealing colours or tints. This is especially handy when trying to achieve "marbled" effects or to generate designs and colours that don't exist in nature.

Dry Lining Clacton-on-Sea (Plasterboarding)

Dry Lining Clacton-on-Sea (Plasterboarding)

Some plasterers in Clacton-on-Sea also provide dry lining services, which are required in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is affixed to a brickwork or masonry surface, a wooden studding or metal Gypframe to create a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Although in certain situations the plasterboard itself can be decorated (with a little additional preparation), a really fine, hard surface is produced by giving it a final skim of finishing plaster. In terms of fittings, when fixing to a metal frame Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used, when attaching to a brick or masonry wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used and when attaching plasterboard to timber joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used.

Screeding Clacton-on-Sea

Screeding Clacton-on-Sea Essex UK (CO15)

Screeding calls for the spreading of a cement and sand mix, to make a smooth and flat floor surface. The application of screed is mostly carried out on top of a previously prepared concrete sub-floor to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as floor boards, carpet or tiles), to be left as a wearing floor surface or to cover underfloor heating pipes. This will considerably increase the life of a floor and positively affect its quality, durability and finish, for many years. Screed is only mixed by hand when small areas are involved. For bigger projects, a reliable screed pump should be used to ensure an even and smooth blend of cement and sand, which can then be pumped directly to the desired location. Amongst the many different kinds of screeds are: free-flowing screed, unbonded screed, fast drying screed, floor levelling compound, structural screed, traditional screed and bonded screed.
