Before any work commences you need to check out potential Grantham plasterers to see if they know their stuff. Ask to see some photos or a portfolio of completed projects. You should avoid hiring "cowboys" for this sort of work, without exceptions. You could run into huge problems down the line when the quality of the plastering is inferior, and these are not always immediately apparent.

Once a coat or two of paint goes on a newly plastered wall or ceiling, you will soon notice any imperfections. This effect will be even more accentuated when the uneven surfaces are viewed in bright sunlight. To avoid issues like this, pick only from decent plasterers in Grantham.

You must never forget that the plastering is the base upon which other materials are applied, so it should be smooth and flat. A badly plastered surface may cause serious difficulties with the installation of kitchen units, bathroom or kitchen tiling, the fitting of skirting boards and the decorating of walls and ceilings.

What you really need is a perfect, polished finish right from the trowel, and experienced Grantham plasterers can be expected to produce results like this. Walls and ceilings that have been plastered by a professional, should never need sanding down. If strenuous sanding is required, you can assume that the plastering has not been done correctly. Be very suspicious of re-hiring plasterers who make use of electric sanders.

Grantham Plastering and Coving

One of the most regular tasks for plasterers these days, is plastering over artex ceilings.

Screeding Grantham Lincolnshire

Screeding Grantham: Certain plasterers in Grantham also offer screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a cement mix. Screeding is generally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be covered with a floor finish (such as tiles, carpet or floor boards), to encase underfloor heating pipes or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. An effectively laid screed can help to increase the lifespan of the whole floor and assure its finish, quality and durability. The hand mixing of screed should only be used where small areas are involved, and preferably a screed pump should be used to speedily ensure a smooth, even blend of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this perfect mix directly to its required location, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such. There are several different kinds of floor screeding available in Grantham, therefore you need to enquire to find which is suitable for your project, you'll be choosing from floor levelling compound, structural screed, bonded screed, fast drying screed, traditional screed, unbonded screed and free-flowing screed.

Plasterboarding Grantham (Dry Lining): Many plasterers in Grantham also offer dry lining services, which will be required in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is attached to a brick surface, a wooden studding or joist or metal framing to produce a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. While it is feasible to decorate or paint the plasterboard finish itself, generally most folks elect to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine layer of plaster afterwards to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used, when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing plasterboard to wooden stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used.
