You can recognize when plastering has been done by a professional, because a quick rub down is all that is required and no sanding is necessary.

Many plasterers will also be glad to slap on a coat of artex if you would like to bring back that 70's style for your ceilings.

Rendering Hoddesdon: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mix of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to external (and sometimes internal) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is popular throughout Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire resistant properties and is water resistant, though it is principally employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is possible to paint a rendered wall, a much better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result. (Tags: Rendering Hoddesdon, Renderers Hoddesdon)

Dry Lining Hoddesdon: Many plasterers in Hoddesdon also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be needed in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the procedure where plasterboard is attached to Gypframe metal framing, a wooden studding or a brick surface to produce a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. While you can decorate the plasterboard finish as it is, in general most people choose to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat afterwards to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" drywall adhesive is used, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing plasterboard to wood joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used.
