Plasterers Kingswinford

Kingswinford Plasterers: Whether you have a small plastering task or a sizeable plastering project to be carried out on your property in Kingswinford, you will need an experienced and professional plasterer to manage the work in a proper and correct manner. Plastering is not really a job you can do yourself, it can take years of practise to perfect.

Some plastering work is often needed, even on modest home improvement jobs. It could be plastering over an old artexed ceiling, plaster skimming a partition, latex screeding or installing cornices or coving before decorating. In truth, it may be any one of hundreds of plastering related jobs.

Plasterers Kingswinford West Midlands

There are numerous ways to find out if prospective Kingswinford plasterers know their stuff, one way is to ask for a portfolio of previous jobs. For this kind of work, you should avoid hiring "cowboys", without exceptions. You could run into significant problems down the line when the quality of the plastering is poor, and these are not always immediately apparent.

Any defects will become glaringly obvious the moment some paint starts going on to your freshly plastered ceilings and walls. Defective surfaces become even more highlighted in bright daylight. To avoid issues like this, choose only from competent plasterers in Kingswinford.

The most important thing for plastered surfaces is that they be smooth and level. An imperfectly plastered surface will cause serious problems with the painting and wallpapering of ceilings and walls, the tiling of wall surfaces, the fitting of skirting boards and the installation of kitchen units.

A polished finish, directly from the trowel is what you can expect from top notch Kingswinford plasterers. Ceilings and walls that have been plastered by a professional, should never need sanding down. You can safely assume that the plastering hasn't been done properly if vigorous sanding is called for. There is certainly something amiss with your plasterer, if you hear the buzz of electric sanding machines.

Plastering and Coving Kingswinford

Plastering over an old artexed ceiling is a common reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times. A much loved form of finish in Kingswinford during the 70's and 80's, artex is to some degree out of favour right now. To give your ceilings that fresh and modern look once more, most plasterers in Kingswinford will gladly cover them with plaster. Plastering over artex is preferable to removing it because it is pretty difficult to get off or repair, which is probably why its popularity has waned.

Rendering Kingswinford: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of lime, sand, cement and water is applied to external (and sometimes internal) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is very popular all around Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resisting qualities, although it's predominately used for cosmetic purposes. While it is quite possible to paint a rendered surface, a better alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result.

Screeding in Kingswinford

Screeding Kingswinford: A few plasterers in Kingswinford, West Midlands also provide floor screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is generally put on top of a concrete sub-floor to take on the final floor finish, to be left as a wearing floor surface or to cover underfloor heating pipes. An effectively laid screed can significantly extend the lifespan of a floor and positively affect its durability, finish and quality. The hand mixing of screed should only be used for small areas, otherwise a screed pump should be used to quickly ensure a smooth, even blend of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this perfect mix straight to its required location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such.

Pebble Dashing Kingswinford: While it is not everyone's cup of tea pebbledashing has been used for many years to decorate and protect the outside walls of properties in Kingswinford. There are people who specialise in pebbledashing out there, but often Kingswinford plasterers will gladly do this kind of work for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a type of external wall coating typically consisting of 2 layers of a base coat made from lime and sand onto which small gravel, pebbles or shells are firmly pressed to form a strong, decorative and maintenance free finish on both renovated and new structures.

Plasterboarding Kingswinford (Dry Lining): Some plasterers in Kingswinford also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is mounted on Gypframe metal framing, a timber studding or joist or a brickwork surface to create a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. While you may decorate the plasterboard surface as it is, normally most prefer to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin layer of plaster afterwards to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to timber joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a metal framework self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used.
