Plasterers Cwmbran

Cwmbran Plasterers: Whether you are thinking about having a small section of plaster repaired, a whole room plastered or need the plastering of your entire home in Cwmbran, you will need a competent and professional plasterer to handle the project for you. Unless you are very confident, plastering is not something you should attempt yourself, mastering this art requires years of practise.

A certain amount of plastering work can be created by even the smallest home improvement projects.

Any decent Cwmbran plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some photographs) of successfully accomplished jobs, ask to see it so that you can make sure they know their stuff. You don't want to get landed with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering. Significant problems can result from inferior plastering, as you will quickly realise.

When a coat of paint goes on a newly plastered wall, you will soon notice any defects. Even more so, with the sunlight shining onto the freshly plastered surfaces. There are plenty of good plasterers in Cwmbran, so make sure you track down a decent one.

Being smooth and level is the most crucial thing for plastered surfaces, because they are just a base upon which other materials are applied. A badly plastered area will cause severe problems with the accurate fitting or skirting boards, any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms), the decorating of the surfaces and the fitting of kitchen units.

A perfect, polished finish, directly from the trowel is what you can expect from top notch Cwmbran plasterers. Ceilings and walls that have been plastered by a professional, should never need sanding down. You would be correct in thinking that the plastering has not been done to a competent standard if extensive sanding is necessary. You should check the quality of the plastering meticulously, if you see orbital sanders being used.

Cwmbran Plastering and Coving

Plastering over an old artexed ceiling is a common reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times. A popular decorative finish for ceilings in Cwmbran during the seventies and eighties, the popularity of artex has decreased recently. Those old artex ceilings can be made to look sleek and modern once again by bringing in your Cwmbran plasterer to cover them up. On the flip side, most plasterers will also apply artex to your smooth ceilings if you have a yen to bring back that 1970's style.

Rendering Cwmbran: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mixture of sand, cement, lime and water is applied to external (and occasionally internal) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is extremely popular across Europe and is particularly widespread in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish has some fire retarding qualities and is water resistant, although it's generally used for cosmetic purposes. While it is of course possible to paint a rendered surface, a much better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable finish.

Pebble Dashing Cwmbran: Though it isn't to everybodys taste pebble dashing has been around for many years and used to decorate and protect the outsides of houses in Wales. There are pebbledashing specialists around, but now and again Cwmbran plasterers will be willing to do this type of work for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a type of external wall coating normally consisting of 2 layers of a base made from sand and lime onto which small pebbles, gravel or shells are pressed to create a maintenance free, tough and decorative finish on both new and refurbished structures.

Dry Lining Cwmbran: A number of plasterers in Cwmbran also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be needed in plenty of improvement projects. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is affixed to a masonry or brickwork surface, metal framing or a timber studding or joist to create a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. While you could decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, in reality most folks choose to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat afterwards to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wood studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a metal framework self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used.
