There are numerous ways to find out if potential Heywood plasterers know their stuff, one way is to ask for a portfolio of past jobs. For this kind of work, you don't want to be employing "cowboys". Inexperienced plasterers lead to inferior plastering and as work progresses this can lead to significant complications.

Any defects in your newly plastered walls and ceilings will soon show up when a coat of paint is applied. Uneven surfaces become even more highlighted in bright sunshine. You will avoid such issues by only choosing from experienced plasterers in Heywood.

Because plaster is always concealed by other materials it is easy to forget how crucial it is that it is smooth and level. An irregular plastered surface can lead to major difficulties with the tiling of wall surfaces, the installation of kitchen units, the accurate fitting of architraves and the wallpapering and painting of walls and ceilings.

Competent Heywood plasterers have their reputations to keep up and will always seek to get the perfect finish right from the trowel, wherever possible. It should not ever be necessary to use electric sanders on freshly plastered walls and ceilings, just a quick rub down with a fine paper before decorating. You can assume that the plastering hasn't been done properly if forceful sanding is called for. If you see the orbital sanders coming out you should be very wary.

Plastering and Coving Heywood

These days, one of the most common jobs a plasterer is asked to do, is cover up an old artexed ceiling. A popular decorative finish for ceilings in Heywood during the 1970's and 80's, the popularity of artex has waned in recent times. To make your old artex ceiling look more fresh and modern, most plasterers in Heywood will gladly plaster over it. On the other hand, if you'd like to bring back that 1970's style, most plasterers will just as gladly slap some artex onto your smooth, featureless ceilings.

Rendering Heywood: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of sand, cement, lime and water is applied to external (and occasionally internal) walls to achieve a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is a popular method across Europe and is particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resisting properties, although it's predominately used for aesthetic purposes. While it is of course possible to paint a rendered surface, a more effective alternative is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result.

Screeding Heywood Greater Manchester

Screeding Heywood: Certain plasterers in Heywood can also offer screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is usually applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface, to receive a floor finish (such as carpet, tiles or floor boards) or to cover underfloor heating pipes. An effectively laid screed can lengthen the life of a floor and positively affect its durability, finish and quality. The hand mixing of screed must only be used where smaller areas are involved, in all other instances a screed pump should be used to quickly guarantee a smooth, even blend of sand, cement and water and to transport (pump) this perfect mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the use of wheelbarrows and similar paraphernalia. There are a number of different types of floor screeding available in Heywood, so you need to inquire about which is appropriate for your screeding project, you'll need to choose from free-flowing screed, bonded screed, structural screed, fast drying screed, unbonded screed, floor levelling compound and traditional screed.

Dry Lining Heywood (Plasterboarding): Some plasterers in Heywood also provide dry lining services, which are required in plenty of improvement projects. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is mounted on a masonry or brickwork surface, Gypframe metal framing or a wood studding to create a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. While you could decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, usually most folks prefer to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine layer of plaster afterwards to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a masonry or brick wall "dot and dab" bonding compound is used, when fixing plasterboard to wooden studding or joists, drywall screws or nails are used and when fixing to a metal framework Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.
