Plasterers Kirkcaldy

Kirkcaldy Plasterers: When your property in Kirkcaldy needs some plastering work doing, it doesn't matter whether substantial or minor, you'll be wanting to find a skilled and professional plasterer to do the job with much care and attention. Plastering can take years of practise to master, so you shouldn't attempt to do it yourself.

Some plastering work is often necessary, even on smaller home improvement jobs. It could be rendering a bare wall, installing coving or mouldings before decorating, skimming a dry lined partition or screeding. In truth, it may possibly be any one of a multitude of plastering related tasks.

Before any work starts you need to check out prospective Kirkcaldy plasterers to see if they know their stuff. Ask to see some photos or a portfolio of completed work. This isn't the kind of work you want to be giving to "cowboys". Even shoddy plastering can sometimes look tolerable at first, but as work progresses, the problems start.

It's when the painting and decorating begins that any defects become blindingly obvious. In bright sunlight your defective plastered surfaces will seem even worse. By picking only from experienced plasterers in Kirkcaldy, you will avoid such problems.

Since plaster is always covered up with other materials it is easy to forget how crucial it is that it is smooth and level. A poorly plastered surface will cause major problems with the fitting of architraves, the fitting of kitchen units, any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms) and the painting of ceilings and walls.

With plastering it is preferable to get a perfect, polished finish, right from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from the most skillful Kirkcaldy plasterers. Walls and ceilings 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. You should check the quality of the plastering thoroughly, if you see power sanders being used.

Kirkcaldy Plastering and Coving

These days, one of the most common jobs a plasterer is requested to do, is plaster over an artexed ceiling. There are still thousands of ceilings in Kirkcaldy that are decorated with this once fashionable finish. Those old artexed ceilings can be made to look sleek and modern once again by bringing in your Kirkcaldy plasterer to cover them up. Many plasterers will also be glad to slap on a coat of artex if you would like to bring back that 70's style to your ceilings.

Dry Lining Kirkcaldy: Many plasterers in Kirkcaldy also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which are needed in plenty of home improvements. Dry lining is the procedure by which plasterboard is affixed to a metal frame, a brickwork or masonry surface or a timber studding to form a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. While it is feasible to paint or decorate the plasterboard surface itself, in reality most prefer to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine coat of plaster afterwards to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wooden studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a brickwork 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.
