Sanding (especially by machine) should never be necessary on newly plastered ceilings and walls, a quick rub down with fine glasspaper is all that should be needed.

Plastering and Coving Ilkeston

These days, a typical reason to call in a plasterer is to cover an old artex ceiling. During the 70's and 80's, artex was the "in" finish for ceilings in Ilkeston, at present that is not the case. To make your dated artex ceiling look more fresh and contemporary, most plasterers in Ilkeston will gladly plaster over it. Plastering over artex is preferred to removing it because it is quite difficult to get off or repair, which is likely why its popularity has waned.

Screeding in Ilkeston

Screeding Ilkeston: Many plasterers in Ilkeston, Derbyshire can also provide screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is generally put on top of a concrete sub-floor to be left as a wearing floor surface, to cover underfloor heating pipes or to be covered with a floor finish (such as carpet, tiles or floor boards). A correctly laid screed can considerably increase the life of the complete floor and assure its finish, durability and quality. Hand mixing screed should only be used for smaller areas, in all other instances a proper screed pump should be employed to rapidly guarantee an even, smooth mixture of cement, sand and water and to pump this fine mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such.
