Plasterers Eastleigh

Eastleigh Plasterers: You should be looking for an experienced and professional plasterer whenever you need some rendering or plastering doing on your property in Eastleigh. Whether the job is large or small should not matter, this is not an activity for novices. Plastering is not really something you can do yourself, it can take years of practise to master.

A certain amount of plastering work can be generated by even the smallest home improvement projects. It might be plaster repair before tiling, skimming a partition, fitting mouldings or coving before decorating or rendering a brick wall. In fact, it might be any one of a host of plastering related jobs.

Viewing a portfolio of successfully accomplished projects is a good way to assess the quality of any potential Eastleigh plasterers, you need to find someone who knows exactly what they're up to. You certainly don't want to be employing a "cowboy" for this sort of work. It is extremely difficult to correct poor quality plastering after the event, so it needs to be done right from the get go.

As soon as a coat or two of paint goes on a newly plastered wall or ceiling, you will soon become aware of any defects. Your newly plastered surfaces will appear even worse with the sunlight shining on them. When you've got the choice between experienced plasterers in Eastleigh and bad ones, always use an experienced one.

The key attribute of plastered surfaces is that they be smooth and flat, forming a level base for other materials to be applied to them. A poorly plastered area will cause major complications with the wallpapering and painting of walls and ceilings, the tiling of wall surfaces, the installation of kitchen units and the fitting of skirtings.

The most sought after Eastleigh plasterers will get a polished finish straight from the trowel. A quick rub down before decorating is all that a plastered wall or ceiling should need, it should never require sanding. If the plastering has not been done properly, vigorous sanding may be needed, and calls the plasterers skills into question. You should be very suspicious if you see the power sanders coming out or their boxes.

Eastleigh Plastering and Coving

Plasterers perform many tasks but one of the most commonplace in recent times, is plastering over artexed ceilings. At the height of its popularity during the nineteen seventies and eighties, artex is less desirable in Eastleigh properties at present. To make your artexed ceiling look more fresh and contemporary, most plasterers in Eastleigh will gladly plaster over it. Those of you who are more retro in taste may want your artex ceilings repaired and brought back to their former glory.

Screeding Eastleigh: Some plasterers in Eastleigh also offer screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is generally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to receive a floor finish (such as floor boards, carpet or tiles), to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface or to cover underfloor heating pipes. A properly laid screed can significantly increase the life of a floor and ensure its finish, durability and quality. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used for smaller areas, otherwise a screed pump should be used to swiftly ensure an even, smooth blend of cement and sand and to pump this perfect mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the use of wheelbarrows and similar equipment. There are a number of different sorts of floor screed available in Eastleigh, so you need to ask to find which is appropriate for your particular project, you will need to pick from free-flowing screed, structural screed, floor levelling compound, fast drying screed, traditional screed, unbonded screed and bonded screed.

Pebble Dashing Eastleigh: Though it isn't to everybodys taste pebble dashing has been used for many years to decorate and protect the outsides of dwellings in Hampshire. There are tradesmen specialise in pebble dashing out there, but quite often Eastleigh plasterers will do this sort of job for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a kind of external wall covering that usually consists of two layers of a base made from lime and sand onto which small gravel, pebbles or shells are firmly pressed to create a maintenance free, strong and attractive finish on both refurbished and new houses.

Plasterboarding Eastleigh (Dry Lining): Certain plasterers in Eastleigh also offer dry lining services, which will be needed in a lot of home improvement jobs. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is attached to a brick surface, metal Gypframe or a wood studding to produce a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst you could paint or decorate the plasterboard finish after a bit of filling, usually most choose to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine layer of plaster to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" bonding compound is used, when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing plasterboard to timber joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used.
