Rendering Knutsford

Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to external (and occasionally interior) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is very popular all over Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resisting qualities, though it's predominately employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is possible to paint a rendered wall, a much better alternative is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting end result.

Artexing Knutsford

Artexing Knutsford CheshireWhile more popular through the 1970's and 1980's artex continues to be an easy way to improve the look of a ceiling, in particular a shabby or cracked one. It is not quite as straightforward to locate a plasterer who will do artexing nowadays, where in the past you would find a number of tradesmen who did very little else but apply artex and do artex repairs. The thing that helped its popularity was possibly the big selection of designs and styles that it was applied in, and it seemed that everyone had their favourite, perhaps it was swirl, scroll, broken leather, circle, bark, basket & roses, criss-cross, medusa, pairs, hook & line or stippled. No matter what your taste was, there appeared to be a design of artex to fit. Of course you can still get all these designs nowadays, simply identify a plasterer in Knutsford who routinely carries out this sort of work, rather that one which will simply "have a bash", in this way you can ensure that you'll get a decent job made of it. The only hitch with artex, and one that brought about its demise, is that it's difficult to repair or patch.
