Hiring a plasterer who knows exactly what they're up to is the most important thing, so ask prospective Hastings plasterers if they can show you a portfolio of their previous work. Getting saddled with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering is a situation that you want to avoid at all costs. You could run into big problems as work progresses when the quality of the plastering is inferior, and these aren't always immediately apparent.

Once you start decorating the defects will begin to show up. Your freshly plastered surfaces will appear even worse with the sun shining on them. It is really a no brainer that you should avoid poor tradesmen, and choose only from decent plasterers in Hastings.

Since plaster is always concealed with other materials it is easy to forget how important it is that it is smooth and flat. A poorly plastered surface can cause severe difficulties with the painting and wallpapering of ceilings and walls, the fitting of skirting boards, any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms) and the fitting of kitchen units.

You should expect nothing less than a polished finish right from the trowel. Any professional plasterer will tell you that a properly plastered ceiling or wall should never need sanding down to achieve a good finish. If the plastering has not been done properly, vigorous sanding may be required, and calls the plasterers skills into question. Be very suspicious of re-hiring plasterers who make regular use of power sanders.

Plastering over artex ceilings is one of the most common reasons for contacting plasterers nowadays. Countless homes in Hastings had ceilings that were coated with artex during the nineteen seventies and eighties, when it was the height of fashion. Those old artex ceilings can be made to look fresh and contemporary once again by calling in your Hastings plasterer to cover them up. If the opposite is the case, then many plasterers will bring that 1970's style back once more by applying a coat of artex.

Rendering Hastings: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process by which a mixture of lime, sand, cement and water is applied to exterior (and now and again interior) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is a popular method across Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resistant qualities, though it is principally employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is quite possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, an even better alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result.

Dry Lining Hastings (Plasterboarding): Certain plasterers in Hastings also provide dry lining services, which are needed in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is fixed to a brick surface, metal framing or a wooden studding or joist to produce a wall surface that does not need plastering. While you could decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, normally most folks elect to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coating to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brick or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used, when fixing to a metal framework Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used and when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used.
