Plastering Grantham

Grantham Plasterers: Whether you are looking to have a small patch of plaster repaired, a whole room plastered or need the plastering of your entire property in Grantham, you will need an experienced and professional plasterer to handle the project for you. It is not advisable to attempt plastering yourself, since it is a craft that often takes many years to master.

When trying to achieve a number of home improvement jobs, you have to consider the likelihood of plastering work being necessary. It might be plaster repair to get ready for tiling, plaster skimming a dry lined partition, installing cornices or coving before decorating or plastering over artex. In actual fact, it might possibly be any of hundreds of plastering related tasks.

Grantham Plasterers

Any top notch Grantham plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some pictures) of successfully completed jobs, ask to see it so you can make sure they know their stuff. Getting stuck with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering is the thing that you want to avoid without exceptions. Inferior plastering is worse than no plastering at all, as it is extremely difficult to put right down the road.

When your newly plastered wall is given a splash of paint, any defects will soon become noticeable. Your freshly plastered surfaces will look even worse with the sunlight shining on them. When you have the choice between experienced plasterers in Grantham and bad ones, always use a competent one.

You should bear in mind that the plastering is simply a base upon which other materials are applied, so it has to be smooth and flat. An unevenly plastered area may lead to major difficulties with any area of wall tiling, the accurate fitting of architraves, the wallpapering and painting of walls and ceilings and the fitting of kitchen units.

The aim of the most experienced Grantham plasterers is to get a perfect, polished finish directly from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less. Ceilings and walls that have been plastered by a professional, should never need sanding down. You can safely assume that the plastering hasn't been done properly if strenuous sanding is called for. The alarm bells should certainly start ringing out if electric sanding machines are being utilized with any regularity.

Grantham Plastering and Coving

Though you may call on the services of a plasterer for many different tasks, one common reason these days is for plastering over old artex ceilings. A widely used decorative finish for ceilings in Grantham during the 70's and 80's, the popularity of artex has decreased in recent times. Most plasterers in Grantham will jump at the chance to plaster over that artex ceiling, making it look more fresh and modern. Most plasterers will also be glad to apply a coat of artex if you would like to bring back that old style for your ceilings.

Rendering Grantham: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mixture of lime, sand, cement and water is applied to external (and now and again interior) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is quite popular all over Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire retarding properties, although it's principally used for cosmetic purposes. While of course it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting end result.

Screeding in Grantham

Screeding Grantham: A number of plasterers in Grantham can also provide floor screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is normally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to take on the final floor finish, to encase underfloor heating pipes or to be left as a wearing floor surface. An effectively laid screed can significantly increase the life of the complete floor and ensure its finish, durability and quality. The hand mixing of screed should only be used for smaller areas, in all other cases a proper screed pump should be employed to swiftly ensure an even, smooth mix of cement and sand and to pump this perfect mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like.
