You do not want to get landed with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering. Inferior plastering is worse than no plastering at all, as it is very hard to put right later.

Once you start decorating the imperfections will begin to show up. Your newly plastered surfaces will probably look even worse with the sun shining on them. By using competent plasterers in Harlow, you should hopefully avoid issues like this.

An irregular plastered area can lead to major complications with the accurate fitting of architraves, the painting and decorating of ceilings and walls, the tiling of wall surfaces and the installation of kitchen units.

With plastering it is preferable to get the perfect finish, directly from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from skilled Harlow plasterers. You can recognize when plastering has been done by an expert, because a quick rub down is all that is required and no sanding is necessary. You would be correct in thinking that the plastering has not been done to an acceptable standard if too much sanding is necessary. Be very suspicious of re-hiring plasterers who make regular use of electric sanding machines.

Plastering and Coving Harlow

Though you may call on the services of a plasterer for many different tasks, one common reason these days is for plastering over artexed ceilings. A widely used form of finish in Harlow during the 1970's and 1980's, artex is pretty much out of favour today. To give your ceilings that sleek and contemporary look once more, most plasterers in Harlow will be more than happy to cover them with plaster. If the reverse is the case, then many plasterers will bring that 1970's style back once more by slapping on a coat of artex.

Screeding Harlow: Many plasterers in Essex also offer a floor screeding service, whereby a new level floor surface is formed using a cement mix. Screeding is typically put on top of a concrete sub-floor to encase underfloor heating pipes, to be left as a wearing floor surface or to take on the final floor finish. A properly laid screed can significantly extend the life of the whole floor and ensure its finish, quality and durability. Hand mixing screed must only be used where smaller areas are involved, in all other instances a proper screed pump should be used to quickly produce an even, smooth mixture of cement, sand and water and to pump this fine mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the use of wheelbarrows and other equipment. There are a number of different sorts of floor screeding available in Harlow, so you need to enquire about which is suitable for your project, you will need to choose from floor levelling compound, fast drying screed, bonded screed, traditional screed, structural screed, free-flowing screed and unbonded screed.

Dry Lining Harlow (Plasterboarding): Some plasterers in Harlow also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in plenty of home improvements. Dry lining is the procedure where plasterboard is affixed to a masonry or brickwork surface, Gypframe metal framing or a wood studding or joist to produce a wall surface that does not need plastering. Whilst you may decorate or paint the plasterboard finish as it is, generally most people opt to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to timber stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used.

Plaster Harlow: Plaster is a building material used for decorating or protecting ceilings and walls in Harlow, and for creating decorative features. In the UK the term "plaster" normally pertains to a material that's used on the insides of homes, while the material used on external areas is termed "render". The most common types of plaster normally contain either cement, gypsum, or lime, although all work in pretty much the same way. Plaster is a dry powder when manufactured and when required, is combined with water to create a stiff but easy to work paste just prior to application. The reaction between the water and plaster generates heat through crystallization and the mixture subsequently becomes hard. (Tags: Plastering Harlow, Render Harlow, Plaster Harlow)

Artexing Harlow EssexArtexing Harlow: Though more popular in the 1970's and 1980's artex remains an effective way to enhance the appearance of a ceiling, especially a cracked or shabby one. It isn't quite as simple to locate a plasterer that will do artexing these days, whereby in the past you would find numerous tradespeople who did nothing but artexing and artex removal. What helped its attractiveness was the wide range of designs and styles it could be fashioned in, and it appeared that everybody had their favourite, perhaps it might have been circle, hook & line, broken leather, basket weave, stippled, pairs, scroll, criss-cross, medusa, bark or swirl. Whatever your taste was, there seemed to be a design of artex to suit. You can obviously still have any of these artex styles these days, simply uncover a local Harlow plasterer who routinely carries out this sort of work, and not one which will merely "have a try", by doing this you should make certain that you'll get a proper job done of it. The main downside to artex, and what probably triggered its fall in popularity, is that it's difficult to patch or repair.
