You can always tell the most experienced Gloucester plasterers because they almost always get a perfect, polished, straight from the trowel. Sanding isn't something that you should ever have to do with a freshly plastered wall or ceiling, only a quick rub down with fine paper. If the plastering hasn't been done properly, strenuous sanding may be needed, and calls the plasterers skills into question. The alarm bells should definitely be ringing out if electric sanding machines are being used with any frequency.

Gloucester Plastering and Coving

One of the most regular tasks for plasterers nowadays, is plastering over artex ceilings. Countless homes in Gloucester had ceilings which were coated with artex during the nineteen seventies and eighties, when it was at its height of popularity. Plastering over that artex ceiling to make it look more sleek and contemporary is something that most plasterers in Gloucester will be more than happy to do. Those of you who are more retro in taste might wish to have your artex ceilings restored and brought back to their former glory.

Rendering Gloucester: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mixture of lime, sand, cement and water is applied to external (and occasionally interior) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is very popular throughout Europe and is particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire retarding qualities and is waterproof, although it is principally used for cosmetic purposes. While it is quite possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a much better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result.

Screeding Gloucester: A number of plasterers in Gloucestershire will also offer screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is usually put on top of a concrete sub-floor to be left as a wearing floor surface, to cover underfloor heating pipes or to take on the final floor finish. A correctly laid screed can significantly lengthen the life of a floor and establish its quality, durability and finish. Hand mixing screed should only be used where small areas are involved, and preferably a proper screed pump should be used to quickly ensure an even, smooth mix of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this fine mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and other paraphernalia.

Dry Lining Gloucester: Certain plasterers in Gloucester also provide dry lining services, which will be required in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the procedure where plasterboard is fixed to a wooden studding or joist, metal framing or a brickwork or masonry surface to form a wall surface that does not need plastering. Whilst you could decorate the plasterboard finish as it is, in reality most folks opt to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coating to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wood studding or joists, drywall screws or nails are used, when fixing to a metal frame Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used and when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used.

Plaster Gloucester: Plaster is a building material that is used for protecting or decorating walls and ceilings in Gloucester, and for producing decorative elements. In the United Kingdom the term "plaster" commonly pertains to a material that is applied to the insides of houses, while the material used on external areas is referred to as "render". The most commonplace forms of plaster mostly contain either lime, cement, or gypsum, and all these elements work in pretty much the same way. Plaster is is produced in powdered form and when required, is blended with water to form a stiff, easy to work paste immediately before application. The reaction between the plaster powder and water generates heat by way of crystallization and the mix consequently hardens. (Tags: Plaster Gloucester, Plastering Gloucester, Render Gloucester)
