Plasterer in Grays

Competent Grays plasterers have their reputations to keep up and will always seek to get the perfect finish right from the trowel, wherever possible. A plastered wall or ceiling should never need to be sanded down to get a good finish, it should only need a quick rub with fine glasspaper before it is decorated. If too much sanding is taking place, the plastering wasn't done properly in the first place. If you see the orbital sanders coming out you should be very suspicious.

Plastering and Coving Grays

Plasterers perform many tasks but one of the most commonplace these days, is plastering over old artex ceilings. A large number of homes in Grays had ceilings that were coated with artex during the 70's and 80's, when it was at its height of popularity. To make your artex ceiling look more sleek and modern, most plasterers in Grays will gladly plaster over it. On the reverse side, most plasterers will also apply artex to your smooth ceilings if you want to bring back that 70's style.

Rendering Grays: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mixture of cement, sand, lime and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes internal) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is a popular method across Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resistant qualities, although it is mainly used for aesthetic purposes. While of course it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a more effective option is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result.

Plasterboarding Grays (Dry Lining): Several plasterers in Grays also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which are needed in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is attached to a brick surface, a timber studding or joist or metal Gypframe to form a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. While you may decorate the plasterboard surface after a bit of filling, in general most people like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin layer of plaster afterwards to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" drywall adhesive is used, when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing plasterboard to timber joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used.
