The aim of competent Enfield plasterers is to get a perfect, polished finish straight from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less. Ceilings and walls that have been plastered by a professional, should never need sanding down. You might reasonably expect some spots that need a bit of work with sandpaper, but not to any significant extent. Be very suspicious of re-hiring plasterers who make regular use of electric sanding machines.

Plastering and Coving Enfield

In recent times, a typical reason to call in a plasterer is to cover an old artex ceiling. There are still thousands of ceilings in Enfield that are decorated with this once popular finish. Plastering over that artexed ceiling to make it look more sleek and contemporary is something that most plasterers in Enfield will gladly do. Most plasterers will also gladly put on a coat of artex if you'd like to bring back that 1970's style to your ceilings.

Pebble Dashing Enfield: Love it or hate it pebble dashing has been around for many years and used to protect and decorate the exteriors of properties in Greater London. There are tradesmen specialise in pebbledashing out there, but sometimes Enfield plasterers will gladly do this type of job for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a type of exterior wall covering typically consisting of two layers of a base made from sand and lime onto which small pebbles or gravel are firmly pressed to form a maintenance free, tough and attractive finish on both new and refurbished homes.

Plasterboarding Enfield (Dry Lining): Many plasterers in Enfield also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which are required in plenty of home improvement tasks. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is fixed to a brick surface, a wood studding or joist or a metal framework to create a wall surface that does not need plastering. Whilst you can decorate or paint the plasterboard finish itself, usually most people elect to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat afterwards to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used, when fixing to a brick or masonry wall "dot and dab" drywall adhesive is used and when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used.
