Now there are plenty of Kilmarnock plasterers to choose from, and you need to find one that knows their stuff. If they've got a website you could study pictures that they've posted, or you could ask to see a portfolio. You certainly don't want to be hiring a "cowboy" for this sort of work. Inexperienced plasterers result in substandard plastering and as work progresses this can lead to significant complications.

Any imperfections will become blindingly obvious as soon as some paint starts going on to your newly plastered ceilings and walls. Uneven surfaces become even more emphasized in bright daylight. There are plenty of good plasterers in Kilmarnock, so make sure you track down an experienced one.

Since plaster is always concealed with other materials it is easy to forget how important it is that it is flat and smooth. An unevenly plastered surface will cause serious difficulties with the installation of kitchen units, the painting and wallpapering of walls and ceilings, the tiling of wall surfaces and fitting architraves.

With plastering it is preferable to get a polished finish, straight from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from professional Kilmarnock plasterers. It should never be necessary to use electric sanding machines on freshly plastered walls and ceilings, just a quick rub down with a fine paper before decorating. You can assume that the plastering hasn't been done correctly if forceful sanding is called for. You should check out the quality of the plastering thoroughly, if you see electric sanders being used.

Kilmarnock Plastering and Coving

Nowadays, one of the most common tasks a plasterer is requested to do, is plaster over an artexed ceiling. A popular decorative finish for ceilings in Kilmarnock during the seventies and eighties, the popularity of artex has waned recently. In order to get your ceilings looking fresh and modern once again, your Kilmarnock plasterer will jump at the chance to cover them up with a smooth new finish. It could be that you actually like artex and may want your flat, featureless ceilings transformed by applying this material. Most Kilmarnock plasterers will just as gladly do this for you.

Rendering Kilmarnock: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mixture of lime, sand, cement and water is applied to external (and now and again internal) walls to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is a popular method throughout Europe and is particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire retarding qualities, although it's mostly employed for cosmetic purposes. While of course it is possible to paint a rendered wall, a much better alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable result.

Pebble Dashing Kilmarnock: Although it is not everyone's cup of tea pebble dashing has been around for many years and used to protect and decorate the exterior walls of dwellings in Kilmarnock. There are people who specialise in pebble dashing around, but sometimes Kilmarnock plasterers will happily do this type of work for you. Pebbledashing (or pebble dashing) is a form of external wall coating usually consisting of 2 layers of a base made from lime and sand onto which small pebbles or gravel are firmly pressed to create an attractive, maintenance free and strong finish on both renovated and new structures.

Plasterboarding Kilmarnock (Dry Lining): Several plasterers in Kilmarnock also offer dry lining services, which are needed in a lot of home improvement projects. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is affixed to a brickwork surface, Gypframe metal framing or a wood studding to form a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst you can paint or decorate the plasterboard finish as it is, generally 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 plasterboard to timber stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing to a brick or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used.
