There are numerous ways to find out if potential Gravesend plasterers know their stuff, one approach is to ask for a portfolio of past jobs. For this type of work, you want to avoid hiring "cowboys", no matter what. Though it may not always be immediately obvious, poor quality plastering can lead to huge problems down the line.

It is always important to keep in mind that plaster needs to be level and smooth, because it is simply a base on which other materials are applied. An irregular plastered surface will cause severe difficulties with the fitting of kitchen units, the accurate fitting of architraves, bathroom or kitchen tiling and the painting of the surfaces.

With plastering it is preferable to get a polished finish, right from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from experienced Gravesend plasterers. Any professional plasterer will tell you that a correctly plastered wall or ceiling should never need sanding down to achieve a nice finish. You can assume that the plastering hasn't been done correctly if forceful sanding is called for. There is certainly something amiss with your plasterer, if you hear the buzz of power sanders.

Dry Lining Gravesend: Some plasterers in Gravesend also offer dry lining services, which will be required in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the procedure where plasterboard is affixed to a brickwork or masonry surface, metal framing or a timber studding or joist to create a wall surface that does not need plastering. Whilst you can decorate or paint the plasterboard finish after a bit of filling, in reality most people opt to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat afterwards to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used, when fixing plasterboard to wooden joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used and when fixing to a masonry or brick wall the "dot and dab" method is used.
