Ask potential Epsom plasterers if they've got a portfolio of successfully completed jobs, the most critical thing is to employ a plasterer who knows what they are doing. You don't want to get landed with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering. Poor quality plastering is worse than no plastering at all, as it is extremely difficult to put right later on.

The defects will soon show up on the newly plastered wall once a coat of paint has gone onto it. This effect will be even more highlighted when the uneven surfaces are viewed in bright sunlight. So, make sure you only consider experienced plasterers in Epsom.

Since plaster is always covered up with other materials it is easy to forget how important it is that it is smooth and flat. An imperfectly plastered area may cause major problems with the fitting of kitchen units, kitchen or bathroom tiling, the fitting of skirting boards and the wallpapering and painting of ceilings and walls.

With plastering it is preferable to get the perfect finish, straight from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from skilled Epsom plasterers. You should never need to sand down a plastered wall or ceiling apart from a quick rub down before decorating. If extensive sanding is taking place, the plastering wasn't done competently in the first place. Be very wary of re-hiring plasterers who make regular use of electric sanders.

Plastering and Coving Epsom

One of the most commonplace tasks for plasterers in recent times, is plastering over old artexed ceilings. During the 70's and 80's, artex was the "in" finish for ceilings in Epsom, at present that is not so much the case. Plastering over that old artex ceiling to make it look more sleek and modern is something that most plasterers in Epsom will gladly do. Plastering over artex is preferred to removing it because it is pretty tricky to take off or repair, which is doubtless why its popularity has waned.

Rendering Epsom: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mixture of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to external (and now and again interior) walls to achieve a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is a popular method across Europe and is particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resistant qualities, though it is predominately employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is quite possible to paint a rendered wall, a better alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting end result.

Screeding Epsom Surrey

Screeding Epsom: Certain plasterers in Epsom, Surrey will also offer floor screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is generally put on over a concrete sub-floor to take on the final floor finish, to cover underfloor heating pipes or to be left as a wearing floor surface. An effectively laid screed can help to extend the lifespan of a floor and ensure its durability, finish and quality. The hand mixing of screed should only be used for smaller areas, and preferably a screed pump should be employed to quickly ensure an even, smooth blend of cement, sand and water and to pump this fine mix directly to where its needed, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and other equipment.
