The primary characteristic of plastered surfaces is that they are flat and smooth, establishing a level base for additional materials to be put onto them. It is quite simple to fill and repair any small blemishes and cracks, but it is tricky to hide inherently irregular plaster. Areas that are irregularly plastered can cause complications with any area of tiling (bathrooms or kitchens), the fitting of kitchen units, fitting architraves and the wallpapering and painting of ceilings and walls.

Danbury Plasterer

The busiest Danbury plasterers have their reputations to maintain and will invariably aim to get a perfect, polished finish directly from the trowel, whenever possible. Sanding (particularly with machine tools) shouldn't ever be necessary on freshly plastered ceilings and walls, a quick rub down with fine glasspaper is all that should be required. If the plastering hasn't been done properly, vigorous sanding may be required, and calls the plasterers skills into question. If electric sanding machines are being used you should check out the standard of the work meticulously.

Rendering Danbury

Renderer Danbury

Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process where a mix of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to external (and sometimes interior) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is very popular all around Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered surface has some fire resisting qualities and is waterproof, though it is principally used for cosmetic purposes. There are a couple of ways that colour can be applied to a rendered surface, either you can apply paint as soon as it is dry, or the colour can be added to the render mix itself, providing a finish which is much longer lasting and more durable.

Screeding Danbury

Danbury Screeders

Many plasterers in Danbury, Essex will also provide screeding services, by which a new level floor surface is formed by the use of a cement mix. Mostly screed will be put on over a concrete sub-floor to cover underfloor heating pipes, to be left as a wearing floor surface or to take on the final floor finish. This can extend the lifespan of the complete floor and positively affect its durability, finish and quality, for many years. An effective screed pump needs to be used to swiftly ensure a smooth, even mix of cement, sand and water and to transport (pump) this fine mix directly to where its needed. Hand mixing screed should only be used where smaller areas are involved. Amongst the many different sorts of screeding are: floor levelling compound, bonded screed, fast drying screed, structural screed, free-flowing screed, unbonded screed and traditional screed.

Artexing

Artexing Danbury Essex

Especially popular throughout the 1970's and 80's, artex has long been an easy way to add a decorative finish to a plastered ceiling, as well as to cover over cracks and uneven surfaces. While in the past you could find quite a lot of tradespeople who did little else but apply artex and do artex removal, currently it is not quite as easy to locate a plasterer that will deal with artexing. Undoubtedly the large variety of styles and designs was just what made it so popular, and everybody seemed to have their own favourite, be it stipple, swirl, scroll, hook & line, circle, criss-cross, medusa, pairs, bark, broken leather or basket. Artex patterns were available to suit any preference or taste. It is of course still quite possible to get any of these artex ceiling patterns carried out today, you will simply have to locate a tradesman (a plasterer and not a handyman) prepared to do it. The main disadvantage of artex, and one that triggered its demise, is it is very difficult to patch or repair.
