Plasterers Fleet

Fleet Plasterers: Whether you are looking to have a small area of plaster repaired, a whole room plastered or need the plastering of your entire home in Fleet, you will need an experienced and professional plasterer to manage the project for you. Plasterers can take many years to perfect their trade, so plastering isn't really something you can do yourself.

Some plastering work is often needed, even on small home improvement jobs. It may be installing coving or decorative mouldings before decorating, latex screeding, plaster skimming a dry lined partition or re-plastering a ceiling. In truth, it could be any of a large number of plastering related jobs.

Employing a plasterer who knows exactly what they are up to is the most critical thing, so ask potential Fleet plasterers if they can show you a portfolio of their previous work. Getting saddled with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering is something that you want to avoid at all costs. Even substandard plastering can sometimes look tolerable at first, but as work progresses, the problems start.

The imperfections will soon show up on the freshly plastered wall the moment a coat of paint has been applied to it. Such flaws will be even more accentuated when viewed in bright sunshine. You will avoid such problems by only picking from decent plasterers in Fleet.

Since plaster is always concealed with other materials it is easy to forget how important it is that it is level and smooth. An unevenly plastered area will cause serious issues with the fitting of kitchen units, the painting of walls and ceilings, any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms) and fitting architraves.

A polished finish, straight from the trowel is what you can expect from skilled Fleet plasterers. You can recognize when plastering has been carried out by a professional, because a quick rub down is all that is required and no heavy sanding is necessary. You can safely assume that the plastering hasn't been done properly if vigorous sanding is called for. If the use of electric sanding machines is becomes a regular thing, there is definately something amiss with your plasterer.

Plastering and Coving Fleet

One common reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times, is to plaster over an old artexed ceiling. Right now out of favour in Fleet, artex was the most popular decorative finish for ceilings during the 1970's and 1980's. To get all your old artexed ceilings looking sleek and modern again, most Fleet plasterers will be happy to plaster over them. If you are more retro in your taste, you might want to give your currently smooth ceilings some character by actually putting on artex.

Rendering Fleet: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process by which a mixture of sand, cement, lime and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes internal) walls to achieve a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is particularly widespread in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resistant qualities, although it's largely employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is of course possible to paint a rendered wall, a more effective solution is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result.

Pebble Dashing Fleet: Some folks love it and some folks hate it but pebble dashing has been used for many years to decorate and protect the exterior walls of homes in Fleet. There are people who specialise in pebble dashing around, but now and again Fleet plasterers will do this kind of work for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a type of external wall coating which typically consists of two layers of a base made of sand and lime onto which small gravel or pebbles are pressed to create a strong, decorative and maintenance free finish on both new and refurbished homes.

Plasterboarding Fleet (Dry Lining): A few plasterers in Fleet also provide dry lining services, which will be required in a lot of home improvement projects. Dry lining is the procedure by which plasterboard is fixed to a wooden studding or joist, a brick or masonry surface or Gypframe metal framing to create a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst you can decorate or paint the plasterboard finish itself, generally most people prefer to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine layer of plaster to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wooden joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used, when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall "dot and dab" bonding is used and when fixing to a metal framework self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used.

Plaster Fleet: Plaster is a common building material that is used for decorating or protecting ceilings and walls in Fleet, and for making decorative features. In the United Kingdom the term "plaster" typically pertains to a material that is applied to the inside of structures, while the material used on external surfaces is called "render". The most frequently used types of plaster typically contain either gypsum, lime, or cement, although all work in pretty much the same way. Plaster is is produced in powdered form and when required, is mixed with water to produce a stiff, easy to work paste just prior to application. The resulting reaction between the plaster powder and water generates heat through crystallization and the mixture subsequently becomes hard. (Tags: Plaster Fleet, Render Fleet, Plastering Fleet)
