With plastering it's advisable to get a polished finish, directly from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from the busiest Laindon plasterers. Sanding (especially by machine) should never be necessary on newly plastered ceilings and walls, a quick rub down with very fine sandpaper is the most that ought to be required. If the plastering hasn't been done properly, strenuous sanding may be needed, and this calls the plasterers ability into question. The alarm bells should definitely be ringing if electric sanding machines are being used with any regularity.
