Ask to see some photos of previously completed work when talking to potential Hounslow plasterers, anybody that knows their stuff will be happy to do this and have nothing to hide. For this type of work, you certainly don't want to be employing "cowboys". Untrained plasterers result in substandard plastering and as work progresses this can lead to significant problems.

It is when the painting and decorating commences that any imperfections become glaringly obvious to the naked eye. This effect will be even more highlighted when the defective surfaces are viewed in bright sunlight. It is really a no brainer that you should avoid dodgy tradesmen, and choose only from competent plasterers in Hounslow.

Being level and smooth is the most important attribute for plastered surfaces, because they are just a base onto which other materials are applied. An imperfectly plastered surface will lead to major problems with any area of wall tiling, the fitting of architraves, the painting and decorating of ceilings and walls and the fitting of kitchen units.

The main thing that you can expect from competent Hounslow plasterers is a polished finish, straight from the trowel. Ceilings and walls that have been plastered by a professional, should never need to be sanded down. You can pretty much assume that the plastering hasn't been done correctly if strenuous sanding is called for. If you hear the buzz of orbital sanders, you need to do a thorough quality check.

Hounslow Plastering and Coving

Nowadays, one of the most common tasks a plasterer is requested to do, is cover up an old artexed ceiling. Artex was at its height of popularity in Hounslow during the seventies and eighties, but today it is not so fashionable. Your Hounslow plasterer will jump at the chance to cover up those artexed ceilings and get your home looking fresh and modern once again. It could be that you actually like artex and may want your currently smooth ceilings transformed by applying this material. Most plasterers will be just as glad do this for you.

Rendering Hounslow: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of lime, sand, cement and water is applied to external (and now and again internal) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is a popular method across Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire resistant properties and is water resistant, although it is largely employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is quite possible to paint a rendered wall, a better alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.

Pebble Dashing Hounslow: Although it is not everyone's cup of tea pebble dashing has been around for many years and used to protect and decorate the outside walls of homes in Hounslow. There are people who specialise in pebbledashing around, but often Hounslow plasterers will be willing to do this sort of work for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a form of exterior wall coating that normally consists of 2 layers of a base made from sand and lime into which small gravel or pebbles are firmly pressed to create a robust, decorative and maintenance free finish on both renovated and new homes.

Plasterboarding Hounslow (Dry Lining): Quite a few plasterers in Hounslow also offer dry lining services, which will be required in plenty of home improvements. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is mounted on a timber studding or joist, a brickwork surface or metal Gypframe to create a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. While it's possible to paint or decorate the plasterboard surface itself, normally most elect to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coating afterwards to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used, when fixing plasterboard to timber joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal frame Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.
