Plasterers Kirkby

Kirkby Plasterers: If you have some plastering that needs doing in your property in Kirkby, you will be looking for a competent and professional plasterer to do a good job on your behalf. It doesn't matter if it is just a small patch, a whole room or your entire property, it is important that you get a decent tradesman. Plastering is not usually a job that you should try yourself, it's an art that takes many years of practise.

It might be skimming a partition, latex screeding, re-plastering a ceiling or installing coving or cornices before decorating. In actual fact, it might possibly be any of a large number of plastering related jobs.

Plasterers Kirkby Merseyside

Before any work begins you need to check out potential Kirkby plasterers to see if they know their stuff. Ask to see some photos or a portfolio of completed projects. You certainly don't want to be hiring a "cowboy" for this kind of work. You could run into big complications down the line when the quality of the plastering is poor, and these aren't always immediately apparent.

Any defects will become glaringly obvious once some paint starts going on to your newly plastered walls and ceilings. Even more so, with the sunlight shining onto the freshly plastered surfaces. By using decent plasterers in Kirkby, you should hopefully avoid issues such as this.

Flat and smooth are the primary attributes of a plastered surface, since other materials will always be applied to it. An imperfectly plastered surface can lead to serious complications with fitting architraves, the tiling of wall surfaces, the wallpapering and painting of the surfaces and the installation of kitchen units.

Plasterer in Kirkby

The aim of the most sought after Kirkby plasterers is to get a polished finish straight from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less. Walls and ceilings that have been plastered by a professional, should never need to be sanded down. If the finished plastering needs forceful sanding, you know that it has not been done correctly. You should check out the quality of the plastering meticulously, if you see electric sanders being used.

Kirkby Plastering and Coving

Plastering over an old artex ceiling is a typical reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times. A popular form of ceiling finish in Kirkby during the 70's and 80's, artex is to some degree out of favour at present. To give your ceilings that fresh and modern look once again, most plasterers in Kirkby will be more than happy to cover them with plaster. Plastering over artex is preferable to removing it because it is pretty tricky to get off or repair, which is no doubt why its popularity has waned.

Screeding Kirkby Merseyside

Screeding Kirkby: Some plasterers in Kirkby, Merseyside can also offer a floor screeding service, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is normally put on over a rougher concrete sub-floor to cover underfloor heating pipes, to be covered with an appropriate floor finish (such as carpet, vinyl, tiles or floor boards) or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. A correctly laid screed can extend the lifespan of the whole floor and positively affect its quality, finish and durability. Hand mixing screed must only be used where small areas are involved, otherwise a proper screed pump should be used to speedily produce an even, smooth mix of sand, cement and water and to transport (pump) this perfect mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the use of wheelbarrows and other equipment.

Pebble Dashing Kirkby: Although it is not to everyones taste pebble dashing has been used for many years to decorate and protect the exteriors of dwellings in Kirkby, Merseyside. There are people who specialise in pebble dashing around, but usually Kirkby plasterers will gladly do this sort of work for you. Pebbledashing (or pebble dashing) is a form of exterior wall coating which generally consists of 2 layers of a base made of sand and lime into which small gravel or pebbles are pressed to form an attractive, maintenance free and tough finish on both renovated and new buildings.

Plasterboarding Kirkby (Dry Lining): Quite a few plasterers in Kirkby also offer dry lining services, which are required in plenty of improvement projects. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is attached to Gypframe metal framing, a wooden studding or joist or a brickwork surface to produce a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. While it is possible to decorate the plasterboard finish as it is, usually most folks choose to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat afterwards to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wood studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a brick or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing to a metal framework self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used.
