Viewing a portfolio of successfully completed work is a good way to judge the quality of any potential Lancaster plasterers, you need to find someone who knows what they're doing. You certainly don't want to be employing a "cowboy" for this sort of work. Significant complications can result from substandard plastering, as you'll soon come to realise.

It's when the painting and decorating begins that any defects become glaringly obvious. Such imperfections will be even more accentuated when viewed in bright sunshine. By using experienced plasterers in Lancaster, you should hopefully avoid issues such as this.

The best Lancaster plasterers have reputations to keep up and will always seek to get a perfect, polished finish straight from the trowel, whenever possible. Heavy sanding is not something that you should ever have to do with a freshly plastered ceiling or wall, just a quick rub down with fine glasspaper. If too much sanding is taking place, the plastering was not done properly in the first place. You should be very suspicious if you see the power sanders coming out or their boxes.

Plastering and Coving Lancaster

Covering up an artexed ceiling, is among a plasterers most frequently requested tasks these days.

On the other hand, many plasterers will also apply artex to your ceilings if you have a yen to bring back that 70's style.

Rendering Lancaster: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process where a mixture of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to exterior (and now and again interior) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is extremely popular all around Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resistant properties, although it's generally used for cosmetic purposes. While it is of course possible to paint a rendered surface, an even better alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable finish.

Screeder Lancaster

Screeding Lancaster: Several plasterers in Lancaster, Lancashire will also provide floor screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is normally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to take on the final floor finish, to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface or to encase underfloor heating pipes. A correctly laid screed can significantly increase the lifespan of a floor and ensure its quality, durability and finish. Hand mixing screed must only be used where smaller areas are involved, in all other cases a proper screed pump should be used to rapidly guarantee an even, smooth mix of cement and sand and to transport (pump) this fine mix straight to its exact location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like. There are a number of different kinds of floor screed available in Lancaster, so you should ask around to find which is suitable for your screeding project, you will need to pick from free-flowing screed, bonded screed, unbonded screed, traditional screed, structural screed, floor levelling compound and fast drying screed.

Dry Lining Lancaster: A few plasterers in Lancaster also provide dry lining services, which are required in plenty of home improvement projects. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is fixed to a wooden studding, metal framing or a brickwork or masonry surface to form a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst you could decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, usually most prefer to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine layer of plaster afterwards to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to timber joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used, when fixing to a brick or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing to a metal frame Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.
