Plastering Ellesmere Port

Ellesmere Port Plasterers: If you've got some plastering that needs doing on your home in Ellesmere Port, you'll be looking for a seasoned and professional plasterer to do a proper job on your behalf. It doesn't matter if it is just a small patch, a complete room or your entire property, you need a good tradesman. It is not advisable to attempt plastering yourself, since it is a craft that can take many years to master.

Even seemingly minor home improvement projects can generate the need for plastering work. It could be re-plastering a ceiling, applying some screeding, fitting coving or mouldings before decorating or plaster skimming dry lining. The fact is, it might possibly be any one of a number of plastering related tasks.

Viewing a portfolio of successfully completed work is a good way to judge the quality of any prospective Ellesmere Port plasterers, you need to find someone who knows what they're up to. You want to avoid hiring "cowboys" for this type of work, at all costs. Inferior plastering is worse than no plastering at all, as it is extremely difficult to put right later on.

Any imperfections will become blindingly obvious once some paint starts going on to your freshly plastered ceilings and walls. Uneven surfaces become even more accentuated in bright sunlight. To avoid problems like this, choose only from decent plasterers in Ellesmere Port.

You must never forget that the plastering is a base upon which other materials are applied, so it should be flat and smooth. An imperfectly plastered surface may cause serious issues with the fitting of kitchen units, any area of tiling (bathrooms or kitchens), the accurate fitting or skirting boards and the painting of the surfaces.

The main thing that you can expect from competent Ellesmere Port plasterers is the perfect finish, directly from the trowel. You should never need to sand down a plastered wall or ceiling apart from a quick rub down before decorating. If any degree of vigorous sanding is needed to smooth the plastered areas, they were not properly done in the first place. If you see the electric sanding machines coming out you should be very wary.

Plastering and Coving Ellesmere Port

Though you may call on the services of a plasterer for many tasks, one common reason these days is for plastering over old artexed ceilings. There are still a large number of ceilings in Ellesmere Port which are decorated with this once fashionable finish. Covering that old artexed ceiling with plaster is something that most Ellesmere Port plasterers will gladly do so as to make it look more sleek and contemporary. If the reverse is the case, then many plasterers will bring that 1970's style back again by applying a coat of artex.

Screeding Ellesmere Port: Some plasterers in Ellesmere Port can also offer floor screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is usually applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface, to be covered with a floor finish (such as carpet, floor boards or tiles) or to cover underfloor heating pipes. A correctly laid screed can prolong the life of the complete floor and positively affect its finish, durability and quality. The hand mixing of screed should only be used where small areas are involved, otherwise a screed pump should be used to swiftly ensure an even, smooth blend of sand and cement and to pump this perfect mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like. There are several different kinds of floor screed available in Ellesmere Port, so you need to ask around to find which is suitable for your project, you will be choosing from bonded screed, fast drying screed, traditional screed, unbonded screed, free-flowing screed, floor levelling compound and structural screed.

Dry Lining Ellesmere Port (Plasterboarding): Many plasterers in Ellesmere Port also provide dry lining services, which are needed in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the procedure by which plasterboard is mounted on a metal frame, a brick surface or a wooden studding or joist to create a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. Whilst you could decorate the plasterboard finish itself after a bit of filling, normally most prefer to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine layer of plaster afterwards to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brick or masonry wall "dot and dab" bonding compound is used, when fixing plasterboard to wood joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used and when fixing to a metal framework self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used.
