Plasterers Hove East Sussex

Now there are lots of Hove plasterers to choose from, and you need to find one who knows their stuff. If they have a website you could study photos that they have posted, alternatively you could ask to see a portfolio. This is not the type of work you want to be trusting to "cowboys". Though it may not always be immediately obvious, shoddy plastering can cause huge complications later on.

When a coat of paint is applied to your freshly plastered walls and ceilings, the imperfections will become glaringly obvious. Even more so, with the sunlight shining onto the freshly plastered surfaces. There are lots of good plasterers in Hove, so make sure you track down an experienced one.

Being flat and smooth is the most crucial thing for plastered surfaces, because they are just a base upon which other materials are applied. An unevenly plastered surface can cause severe difficulties with bathroom or kitchen tiling, the fitting of kitchen units, the fitting of architraves and the painting of the surfaces.

Plasterer in Hove

The best Hove plasterers have reputations to keep up and will always aim to get a perfect, polished finish directly from the trowel, whenever possible. A plastered ceiling or wall should never need to be sanded down to get a nice finish, it should only need a quick rub with fine glasspaper before it is decorated. If the finished plastering needs strenuous sanding, you know that it hasn't been done properly. Be very wary of re-hiring plasterers who make use of power sanders.

Hove Plastering and Coving

In recent times, a typical reason to call in a plasterer is to cover an old artex ceiling. There are still a large number of ceilings in Hove that are decorated with this once fashionable finish. To get all your artexed ceilings looking fresh and modern again, most Hove plasterers will gladly plaster over them. If you're a bit retro in your taste, you may want to give your currently smooth ceilings a little character by actually putting on artex.

Plasterboarding Hove (Dry Lining): A few plasterers in Hove also provide dry lining services, which will be required in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is affixed to a brick or masonry surface, Gypframe metal framing or a wood studding to create a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. While it's possible to decorate the plasterboard surface after a bit of filling, normally most folks like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin layer of plaster to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used, when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing plasterboard to wooden joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used.

Plaster Hove: Plaster is a common building material which is used for protecting or decorating ceilings and walls in Hove, and for producing decorative elements. In the UK the term "plaster" typically pertains to a material which is applied to the interiors of structures, whilst the material used on exterior surfaces is termed "render". The most commonplace kinds of plaster primarily contain either gypsum, cement, or lime, but all these elements basically work in the same way. Plaster is is produced in powdered form and when needed, is simply mixed with water to create a stiff but easy to work paste immediately before application. The reaction between the plaster and water generates heat by way of crystallization and the mixture then sets and hardens. (Tags: Plastering Hove, Render Hove, Plaster Hove)

Artexing Hove East SussexArtexing Hove: Even though more popular throughout the 1970's and 1980's artex is still a decent way to improve the appearance of a ceiling, especially a shabby or cracked one. It is not quite so simple to obtain a plasterer that will take on artexing these days, where in the good old days you could find many tradesmen who did little else but artexing and artex patching. What boosted its attractiveness was possibly the broad range of designs and styles that it was applied in, and it appeared that everybody had their preferred design, possibly it was hook & line, scroll, medusa, bark, criss-cross, stippled, broken leather, pairs, circle, swirl or basket & flowers. Whatever your taste, you'd find an artex design to suit. You can of course still have ceilings done in all of these artex designs today, just look for a local Hove plasterer who routinely executes this sort of work, rather that one who will merely "give it a try", by doing this you should make certain you will get a good job made of it. The only hitch with artex, and one that brought about its fall in popularity, is that it is very difficult to patch or repair.
