Kirkcaldy Plasterers: If you have some plastering that needs doing on your property in Kirkcaldy, 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 area, a whole room or your entire property, it is crucial that you get a good tradesman.

Plasterers Kirkcaldy Scotland

There are various ways to find out if potential Kirkcaldy plasterers know their stuff, one approach is to ask for a portfolio of previous jobs. Getting saddled with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering is the thing that you want to avoid at all costs. You could run into significant problems later on when the quality of the plastering is sloppy, and these aren't always immediately obvious.

It's easy to become aware of any defects as soon as a coat of paint has gone onto the freshly plastered wall. When viewed in bright sunlight, even more imperfections will show up on any defective surfaces. To avoid problems like this, pick only from experienced plasterers in Kirkcaldy.

You should bear in mind that the plastering is a base on which other materials are applied, so it needs to be smooth and level. A poorly plastered surface could cause major complications with the fitting of skirting boards, the painting and wallpapering of ceilings and walls, bathroom or kitchen tiling and the fitting of kitchen units.

Top notch Kirkcaldy plasterers will get a perfect finish straight from the trowel. Heavy sanding isn't something that you should ever have to do with a newly plastered wall or ceiling, only a quick rub down with fine paper. You would be right in thinking that the plastering has not been done to a competent standard if extensive sanding is necessary. The alarm bells should certainly be ringing out if power sanders are being utilized with any regularity.

Kirkcaldy Plastering and Coving

Plastering over an artex ceiling is a common reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times. Right now somewhat out of favour in Kirkcaldy, artex was the most widely used decorative finish for ceilings during the 1970's and 1980's. To get all your dated artex ceilings looking fresh and modern again, most Kirkcaldy plasterers will jump at the chance to plaster over them. It might be that you actually like artex and may want your smooth, flat ceilings transformed by applying this material. Most Kirkcaldy plasterers will be just as glad do this for you.

Rendering Kirkcaldy: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mixture of cement, sand, lime and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes interior) walls to achieve a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is a popular method throughout Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire retarding properties, although it's largely employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is quite possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, a more effective option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable finish.

Pebble Dashing Kirkcaldy: Though it is not everyone's cup of tea pebble dashing has been used for many years to protect and decorate the exterior walls of properties in Scotland. There are pebbledashing specialists around, but often Kirkcaldy plasterers will gladly do this sort of work for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a form of external wall coating generally consisting of a couple of layers of a base made from sand and lime into which small gravel, pebbles or shells are firmly pressed to form an attractive, robust and maintenance free finish on both refurbished and new houses.

Artexing Kirkcaldy: Although most common throughout the Seventies and Eighties artex continues to be an effective way to enhance the look of a ceiling, particularly a shabby or cracked one. It isn't quite as simple to locate a plasterer who will undertake artexing at the moment, whereby at one time you would find tons of tradespeople who did nothing but apply artex and do artex patching. What enhanced its attractiveness was the large range of designs it could be applied in, and it appeared that everyone had their preferred style, maybe it might have been broken leather, basket weave, scroll, hook & line, medusa, stipple, swirl, criss-cross, circles, bark or pairs. Whatever your taste, there appeared to be an artex design to fit. Of course you can still get ceilings done in any of these artex designs these days, just get a plasterer in Kirkcaldy who regularly does this sort of work, and not one which will just "have a go", in this manner you can be certain you will get a proper job done of it. The main downside to artex, and one that triggered its fall in popularity, is that it's quite tricky to patch or repair.
