You don't want to get lumbered with a team of "cowboys" messing up your plastering. Significant problems can result from shoddy plastering, as you will soon come to realise.

Plaster always needs to be flat and smooth, considering that it's just a base upon which other materials are placed. Minor cracking and dents may be easily filled and sanded afterwards with few issues, but uneven plastering is hard to cover up. A badly plastered area will cause major complications with the tiling of wall surfaces, the installation of kitchen units, the painting and decorating of ceilings and walls and the fitting of skirtings.

The aim of the most skillful Earl Shilton plasterers is to get the perfect finish right from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less. You should be able to recognize when plastering has been done by an expert, as a quick rub down is all that is needed and no heavy sanding is necessary.

If power sanders are being employed you should check out the quality of the plastering thoroughly.

Renderers Earl Shilton

Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of sand, cement, lime and water is applied to external (and occasionally internal) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. A popular technique all around Europe, rendering is really common in the Mediterranean region, notably in Spain, Italy and Greece. A rendered surface has some fire resistant properties and is waterproof, although it is mainly employed for aesthetic purposes. There are two ways that colour can be applied to a rendered surface, either you can apply paint as soon as it's dry, or the colour can be added to the render mix itself, providing a surface that is much longer lasting and more resilient.

Dry Lining Earl Shilton (Plasterboarding)

There are loads of home refurbishment assignments that will require dry lining to be carried out, and a few Earl Shilton plasterers will be willing to do this for you. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is fixed to a brick or masonry surface, a metal frame or a wood studding to produce a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Occasionally the plasterboard itself can be decorated, although mostly it will be skimmed with a fine coat of finishing plaster, which can be papered or painted without the need for filling. With regards to fittings, when attaching to a metal Gypframe Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used, when attaching to a masonry or brick wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when attaching plasterboard to timber joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used.

Plaster Earl Shilton

Plaster is a common building material which is used for decorating or protecting walls and ceilings in Earl Shilton, and for the production of decorative elements. What we call "plaster" in the UK is usually thought of as the stuff that's used for coating the interior rooms of houses and structures, whilst that which is used externally is called "render" or "rendering". Plaster mixes usually contain either cement, lime, or gypsum, all of which work in fairly similar ways. Plaster is a powder when manufactured and when required, is simply combined with water to create a stiff, easily workable paste just prior to application. The reactions between the plaster powder and water generates heat by way of crystallization and the mix subsequently hardens.

Decorative Plastering

Forms of plaster have been used for both decorative and functional objectives ever since the days of the ancient Greeks. The materials used would not surprisingly have differed in those long forgotten days, when blends of both mud and clay were applied. To help prevent fires from spreading in 13th century London, a kind of plaster was put on the internal walls of structures. As you'll witness if you visit structures of this time, elaborate plaster of paris or gypsum mouldings and features were widely used in Victorian and Georgian times. In the 21st Century, skilled plasterers are able to produce amazing decorative effects by the use of age-old techniques coupled with modern materials. This could include the use of coving, cornice finishes, ceiling roses, brackets, dentils, corbels and niches.
