Ask to see some photos of previously completed work when talking to prospective Finchampstead plasterers, anyone that knows their stuff will be glad to do this and have nowt to hide. This is not the type of work you want to be trusting to "cowboys". Significant problems can result from poor quality plastering, as you'll quickly realise.

It is really a no brainer that you should steer clear of dodgy tradesmen, and pick only from competent plasterers in Finchampstead.

The most important thing for plastered surfaces is that they be level and smooth. An imperfectly plastered surface can cause severe difficulties with the fitting of kitchen units, the tiling of wall surfaces, the painting and wallpapering of the surfaces and fitting skirting boards.

Skillful Finchampstead plasterers have their reputations to keep up and will always aim to get the perfect finish directly from the trowel, where possible. Ceilings and walls that have been plastered by a professional, should never need to be sanded down. If vigorous sanding is necessary, you can pretty much assume that the plastering has not been done correctly. If electric sanders are being used you might want to check the quality of the work meticulously.

Plastering and Coving Finchampstead

Covering up an old artex ceiling, is one of a plasterers most typically requested tasks nowadays. Today somewhat out of favour in Finchampstead, artex was the most popular decorative finish for ceilings during the nineteen seventies and eighties. Those old artexed ceilings can be made to look fresh and modern once again by calling in your Finchampstead plasterer to cover them up. Those of you who are more retro in taste might wish to have your artex ceilings repaired and brought back to their former glory.

Rendering Finchampstead: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of lime, sand, cement and water is applied to external (and occasionally internal) walls to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is a popular method all around Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire retarding properties, although it is predominately used for cosmetic purposes. While it is possible to paint a rendered surface, an even better solution is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable finish.

Screeding Finchampstead: Some plasterers in Finchampstead will also provide screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is generally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface, to encase underfloor heating pipes or to take on the final floor finish. An effectively laid screed can considerably prolong the lifespan of the complete floor and positively affect its quality, finish and durability. The mixing of screed by hand is only suitable for smaller areas, in all other cases a proper screed pump should be employed to swiftly ensure a smooth, even blend of cement, sand and water and to transport (pump) this perfect mix directly to where its needed, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and other equipment.

Pebble Dashing Finchampstead: Although it isn't to everybodys taste pebble dashing has been around for many years and used to protect and decorate the outside of properties in Berkshire. There are people who specialise in pebble dashing around, but from time to time Finchampstead plasterers will do this type of job for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a type of external wall covering generally consisting of two layers of a base coat made from sand and lime into which small pebbles or gravel are pressed to form a maintenance free, decorative and tough finish on both new and refurbished structures.

Dry Lining Finchampstead: A few plasterers in Finchampstead also offer dry lining services, which are required in a lot of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is attached to Gypframe metal framing, a timber studding or a masonry or brickwork surface to form a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. While it's feasible to decorate the plasterboard surface itself, generally most people prefer to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coating afterwards to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" bonding compound is used, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing plasterboard to wood joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used.
