Plasterer Ely

The main thing that you can expect from the busiest Ely plasterers is the perfect finish, straight from the trowel. You should never need to sand down a plastered ceiling or wall apart from a quick rub down before decorating. If the finished plastering needs vigorous sanding, you know that it hasn't been done correctly. You should be very wary if you see the power sanders coming out or their boxes.

Plastering and Coving Ely

One of the most commonplace tasks for plasterers these days, is plastering over old artex ceilings. Today somewhat out of favour in Ely, artex was the most widely used decorative finish for ceilings during the seventies and eighties. Those old artexed ceilings can be made to look sleek and contemporary once again by calling in your Ely plasterer to cover them up. If you are a bit retro in your taste, you may want to give your currently smooth ceilings some character by actually putting on some artex.

Rendering Ely: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to external (and occasionally internal) walls to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is extremely popular all over Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish has some fire retarding qualities and is waterproof, though it's predominately employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is of course possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a better option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result.

Screeder Ely

Screeding Ely: Many plasterers in Cambridgeshire also offer screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is generally put on over a rougher concrete sub-floor to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as tiles, floor boards or carpet), to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface or to cover underfloor heating pipes. A properly laid screed can help to extend the lifespan of the complete floor and positively affect its quality, durability and finish. The hand mixing of screed should only be used for smaller areas, and preferably a proper screed pump should be used to speedily guarantee an even, smooth mix of sand, cement and water and to transport (pump) this fine mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and similar paraphernalia. There are several different kinds of floor screeding available in Ely, therefore you need to enquire about which is suitable for your particular project, you'll need to pick from bonded screed, fast drying screed, traditional screed, structural screed, floor levelling compound, free-flowing screed and unbonded screed.

Dry Lining Ely (Plasterboarding): Several plasterers in Ely also provide dry lining services, which will be required in plenty of home improvements. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is attached to Gypframe metal framing, a brickwork or masonry surface or a wooden studding or joist to create a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst you may decorate the plasterboard surface after a bit of filling, usually most folks choose to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat afterwards to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brick or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used, when fixing plasterboard to timber studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used.

Artexing Ely CambridgeshireArtexing Ely: Although most popular through the 1970's and 1980's artex is still a good way to enhance the appearance of ceilings, in particular shabby or cracked ones. It isn't quite so simple to track down a plasterer that will deal with artexing at the moment, whereby at one time you would find many tradespeople who did very little else but apply artex and do artex patching. What raised its popularity was possibly the large range of designs and styles that it was applied in, and it appeared to be the case that everybody had their favourite, perhaps it was criss-cross, hook & line, basket, medusa, pairs, circle, swirl, scroll, bark, stippled or broken leather. No matter what your taste was, there seemed to be a design of artex to suit. Obviously you can still get all of these artex styles these days, simply find a local Ely plasterer who regularly executes this type of work, rather that one who'll basically "give it a try", by doing this you can be certain that you're going to get a good job done of it. The only pitfall with artex, and what probably led to its drop in popularity, is it's really difficult to patch or repair.
