Plasterers Falmouth

Falmouth Plasterers: When your home in Falmouth needs some plastering work doing, it doesn't matter whether small or large, you'll be wanting to find a qualified and professional plasterer to do the job with much attention and care. Unless you are incredibly confident, plastering is not something you should attempt by yourself, mastering this trade often takes years of practise.

There are a lot of home improvement projects, even smaller ones, which end up with some plastering work needing to be done. It might be applying some screeding, fitting coving or mouldings before decorating, plastering over artex or skimming a dry lined partition. The truth is, it may be any one of a number of plastering related tasks.

Hiring a plasterer who knows exactly what they're doing is the most important thing, so ask potential Falmouth plasterers if they can show you a portfolio of their accomplished work. Getting saddled with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering is a situation that you want to avoid at all costs. Even inferior plastering can sometimes look tolerable at first glance, but later on, the complications start.

When your newly plastered wall is given a coat of paint, any imperfections will soon become noticeable. Even more so, with the sun shining onto the freshly plastered surfaces. You'll avoid this issue by only picking from competent plasterers in Falmouth.

You need to remember that the plastering is the base upon which other materials are applied, so it needs to be flat and smooth. A badly plastered surface can lead to serious difficulties with the painting of ceilings and walls, the accurate fitting of architraves, the installation of kitchen units and kitchen or bathroom tiling.

Competent Falmouth plasterers will get a polished finish right from the trowel. Ceilings and walls that have been plastered by a professional, should never need sanding down. If strenuous sanding is necessary, you can assume that your plastering has not been done properly. If you hear the buzz of power sanders, you need to do a thorough quality check.

Plastering and Coving Falmouth

One common reason for calling in a plasterer nowadays, is to plaster over an artexed ceiling. A much loved decorative finish for ceilings in Falmouth during the 1970's and 1980's, the popularity of artex has decreased recently. Covering that dated artex ceiling with plaster is something that most Falmouth plasterers will jump at the chance to do so as to make it look more fresh and modern. On the flip side, if you want to bring back that old style, most plasterers will just as gladly slap some artex onto your smooth ceilings.

Rendering Falmouth: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to exterior (and now and again internal) walls 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 is waterproof and has some fire resisting properties, although it is largely used for aesthetic purposes. While of course it is possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, a more effective solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable finish.

Screeding Falmouth: Some plasterers in Falmouth can also offer a floor screeding service, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is generally put on top of a concrete sub-floor to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface, to take on the final floor finish or to encase underfloor heating pipes. An effectively laid screed can extend the life of the whole floor and positively affect its durability, quality and finish. The mixing of screed by hand is only recommended for smaller areas, otherwise a screed pump should be employed to rapidly guarantee an even, smooth blend of cement, sand and water and to transport (pump) this fine mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like.

Falmouth plastering specialists will likely help with sand and cement screeds, overskimming plasterwork, the rendering of blockwork, wall crack repairs, flood and fire renovations, asbestos testing, plaster coving, artex broken leather patterns, dry dashing, drywall lining, internal screeding and rendering, monocouche rendering and other plastering work in Falmouth, Cornwall.
