Plastering Cwmbran

Cwmbran Plasterers: When your home in Cwmbran needs some plastering work doing, it doesn't matter whether small or large, you will be wanting to find a qualified and professional plasterer to do the job with much attention and care. Mastering the art of plastering can take several years of practise, so it isn't a job you can do yourself unless you are extremely confident in what you are doing.

Ask to see some photos of previously completed work when interviewing prospective Cwmbran plasterers, anybody that knows their stuff will be happy to do this and have nothing to hide. You certainly don't want to be hiring a "cowboy" for this kind of work. Significant complications can result from inferior plastering, as you'll quickly realise.

When your newly plastered wall is given a splash of paint, any defects will soon become obvious. This effect will be even more highlighted when the uneven surfaces are viewed in bright sunshine. It really is a no brainer that you should steer clear of poor tradesmen, and choose only from competent plasterers in Cwmbran.

Plaster always need to be level and smooth, because it is just a base on which other materials are applied. An imperfectly plastered surface will lead to severe difficulties with the decorating of ceilings and walls, kitchen or bathroom tiling, the fitting of skirtings and the fitting of kitchen units.

With plastering it is preferable to get a perfect, polished finish, straight from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from the best Cwmbran plasterers. Walls and ceilings that have been plastered by a professional, should never need sanding down. If the plastering has not been done properly, forceful sanding may be required, and this calls the plasterers ability into question. You should check out the quality of the plastering meticulously, if you see power sanders being used.

Cwmbran Plastering and Coving

One of the most requested tasks for plasterers nowadays, is plastering over artex ceilings. Artex was at its height of popularity in Cwmbran during the 1970's and 1980's, but today it is not so fashionable. To make your artexed ceiling look more sleek and contemporary, most plasterers in Cwmbran will gladly plaster over it. Many plasterers will also be glad to put on a coat of artex if you would like to bring back that 70's style for your ceilings.

Rendering Cwmbran: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mix of sand, cement, lime and water is applied to exterior (and occasionally internal) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is popular all around Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire resisting properties and is waterproof, though it's mostly employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is acceptable to apply paint to a rendered surface, a better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable finish. (Tags: Rendering Cwmbran, Renderers Cwmbran)

Pebble Dashing Cwmbran: While it is not everyone's cup of tea pebbledashing has been around for many years and used to decorate and protect the exterior walls of houses in Wales. There are pebbledashing specialists out there, but from time to time Cwmbran plasterers will do this type of job for you. Pebbledashing (or pebble dashing) is a kind of exterior wall covering generally consisting of two layers of a base made of sand and lime onto which small gravel or pebbles are pressed to form a decorative, maintenance free and strong finish on both new and refurbished houses.

Plasterboarding Cwmbran (Dry Lining): Some plasterers in Cwmbran also provide dry lining services, which are required in a lot of home improvement projects. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is affixed to metal Gypframe, a timber studding or a brick surface to form a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. Whilst it's feasible to decorate or paint the plasterboard finish itself after a bit of filling, in general most people elect to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin coat of plaster to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a masonry or brick wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used, when fixing plasterboard to wood studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal framework Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.
