As soon as a coat or two of paint goes on a newly plastered wall, you will soon become aware of any imperfections. They will likely look even worse with the sun shining on them. So, make sure you only consider competent plasterers in Irvine.

You need to remember that the plastering is the base on which other materials are applied, so it must be flat and smooth. An imperfectly plastered area can lead to serious issues with the painting of the surfaces, the fitting of kitchen units, fitting architraves and bathroom or kitchen tiling.

Experienced Irvine plasterers have reputations to keep up and will always seek to get a polished finish directly from the trowel, where possible. Ceilings and walls that have been plastered by a professional, should never need to be sanded down. If your finished plastering needs forceful sanding, you know that it hasn't been done correctly. You should be very wary if you see the orbital sanders coming out or their boxes.

Plastering and Coving Irvine

Plastering over an artex ceiling is a common reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times. Artex was at its height of popularity in Irvine during the 1970's and 1980's, but at present it is not so much so. Your Irvine plasterer will gladly cover up those old artex ceilings and get your home looking sleek and modern once again. On the reverse side, most plasterers will also apply artex to your smooth ceilings if you are wanting to bring back that 70's style.

Pebble Dashing Irvine: Though it isn't to everybodys taste pebble dashing has been used for many years to protect and decorate the exterior walls of properties in Scotland. There are people who specialise in pebble dashing out there, but now and again Irvine plasterers will be willing to do this type of job for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a kind of external wall coating which generally consists of two layers of a base coat made from lime and sand into which small gravel or pebbles are pressed to create a maintenance free, tough and decorative finish on both refurbished and new homes.

Dry Lining Irvine: A few plasterers in Irvine also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in a lot of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is fixed to a wood studding, Gypframe metal framing or a masonry or brickwork surface to produce a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. While it is feasible to decorate or paint the plasterboard finish itself after a bit of filling, in general most choose to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin coat of plaster to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to timber studding or joists, drywall screws or nails are used, when fixing to a metal frame self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing to a masonry or brick wall "dot and dab" bonding is used.

Artexing Irvine: Though more common in the Seventies and Eighties artex continues to be an effective way to improve the look of ceilings, particularly cracked or shabby ones. It's not quite so easy to locate a plasterer who will deal with artexing these days, where in the past there were an abundance of tradespeople who did little else but artexing and artex repairs. What raised its popularity was probably the wide selection of designs that it was fashioned in, and it seemed to be the case that everyone had their favourite, possibly it might have been swirl, criss-cross, circles, scroll, medusa, pairs, stipple, bark, broken leather, basket or hook & line. Whatever your taste, you'd find an artex design to match. You can obviously still have all these artex styles nowadays, simply find a plasterer in Irvine who constantly carries out this sort of work, and not one who'll just "give it a try", in this manner you can be sure that you're going to get a good job made of it. The only pitfall with artex, and what probably led to its demise, is it's tricky to patch or repair.
