Viewing a portfolio of successfully completed work is a good way to assess the quality of any prospective Dumfries plasterers, you need to find someone who knows exactly what they are doing.

The defects will soon manifest on the freshly plastered wall as soon as a coat of paint has gone onto it. This effect will be even more accentuated when the defective surfaces are viewed in bright sunlight. It really is a no brainer that you should steer clear of dodgy tradesmen, and choose only from decent plasterers in Dumfries.

It is always important to keep in mind that plaster needs to be level and smooth, because it is just a base on which other materials are applied. A shoddily plastered area will cause major difficulties with the painting of the surfaces, the fitting of architraves, the tiling of wall surfaces and the fitting of kitchen units.

A perfect finish, directly from the trowel is what you can expect from the most experienced Dumfries plasterers. Walls and ceilings that have been plastered by a professional, should never need to be sanded down. If too much sanding is taking place, the plastering was not done competently in the first place. The alarm bells should certainly start ringing out if electric sanding machines are being used with any regularity.

Dumfries Plastering and Coving

Nowadays, one of the most common jobs a plasterer is requested to do, is cover up an artex ceiling. A popular form of ceiling finish in Dumfries during the 1970's and 1980's, artex is to some degree out of favour at present. To give your ceilings that sleek and contemporary look once more, most plasterers in Dumfries will be more than happy to cover them with plaster. It could be that you actually love artex and may want your flat, featureless ceilings transformed by applying this material. Most plasterers will just as gladly do this for you.

Plasterboarding Dumfries (Dry Lining): Some plasterers in Dumfries also provide dry lining services, which are needed in a lot of home improvement jobs. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is attached to a wood studding, metal framing or a brick or masonry surface to create a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst you may decorate the plasterboard surface itself, in reality most folks like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine coat of plaster afterwards to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal frame self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used, when fixing plasterboard to timber joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a brick or masonry wall "dot and dab" bonding compound is used.
