Any decent Exeter plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some photographs) of successfully accomplished jobs, ask to see it so you can make sure they know their stuff. At all costs, you want to avoid hiring "cowboys" for work of this kind. It is very hard to correct inferior plastering after the event, so it needs to be done properly from the get go.

You'll soon notice any imperfections as soon as a coat of paint has gone on the newly plastered wall. When viewed in bright daylight, even more imperfections will show up on any uneven surfaces. So, make sure you only consider experienced plasterers in Exeter.

Since plaster is always covered up by other materials it is easy to forget how crucial it is that it is level and smooth. An irregular plastered area will lead to serious complications with kitchen or bathroom tiling, the accurate fitting of architraves, the fitting of kitchen units and the painting of walls and ceilings.

You can always tell competent Exeter plasterers because they invariably get a perfect, polished, straight from the trowel. Heavy sanding is not something that you should ever have to do with a freshly plastered wall or ceiling, just a quick rub down with fine glasspaper. You would be correct in thinking that the plastering has not been done to an acceptable standard if extensive sanding is necessary. If you see the electric sanding machines coming out you should be very wary.

Exeter Plastering and Coving

Covering up an old artex ceiling, is one of a plasterers most typically requested tasks in recent times. A much loved decorative finish for ceilings in Exeter during the 1970's and 1980's, the popularity of artex has waned in recent times. To give your ceilings that sleek and contemporary look once again, most plasterers in Exeter will gladly cover them with plaster.

Rendering Exeter: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process whereby a mixture of lime, sand, cement and water is applied to external (and occasionally interior) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is extremely popular all over Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire resistant properties and is waterproof, although it's mainly employed for aesthetic purposes. While of course it is possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, a more effective solution is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting end result.
