Any decent Kilmarnock plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some photographs) of successfully completed jobs, ask to see it so that you can make sure they know their stuff.

With plastering it is preferable to get a polished finish, straight from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from skillful Kilmarnock plasterers. Vigorous sanding isn't something that you should ever have to do with a freshly plastered ceiling or wall, just a quick rub down with fine paper. You can pretty much assume that the plastering has not been done correctly if vigorous sanding is called for. If you see the orbital sanders coming out you should be very suspicious.

Kilmarnock Plastering and Coving

While you may call on the services of a plasterer for many tasks, a common reason nowadays is for plastering over old artex ceilings. Artex was at its height of popularity in Kilmarnock during the 1970's and 80's, but currently it is not so much so. To give your ceilings that fresh and modern look once again, most plasterers in Kilmarnock will gladly cover them with plaster. If you are more retro in your taste, you might wish to give your currently smooth ceilings a little character by actually putting on some artex.

Rendering Kilmarnock: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process whereby a mixture of lime, cement, sand and water is applied to external (and sometimes interior) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is extremely popular throughout Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resisting properties, although it is predominately used for aesthetic purposes. While it is of course possible to paint a rendered wall, an even better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable result.

Screeding Kilmarnock: Some plasterers in Kilmarnock, Scotland also offer a floor screeding service, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is typically put on top of a concrete sub-floor to receive a floor finish (such as tiles, floor boards or carpet), to be left as a wearing floor surface or to encase underfloor heating pipes. A properly laid screed can significantly prolong the life of the complete floor and ensure its durability, quality and finish. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used for small areas, in all other cases a screed pump should be used to speedily produce an even, smooth blend of cement and sand and to transport (pump) this fine mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the use of wheelbarrows and similar paraphernalia.

Plasterboarding Kilmarnock (Dry Lining): Quite a few plasterers in Kilmarnock also offer dry lining services, which are required in a lot of home improvements. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is fixed to a metal framework, a wood studding or joist or a brick or masonry surface to produce a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. While you can paint or decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, generally most like to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coating to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall "dot and dab" bonding is used, when fixing plasterboard to timber joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used and when fixing to a metal frame Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.
