Ask to see some photos of previously completed work when interviewing potential Llanelli plasterers, anyone who knows their stuff will be glad to do this and have nowt to hide. Plastering requires a focused approach and shouldn't be done by "cowboys". Substandard plastering can cause huge problems down the line, and it may not even be apparent until the decorating starts.

The defects will soon show up on the freshly plastered wall once a coat of paint has been applied to it. When viewed in bright daylight, even more imperfections will show up on any uneven surfaces. There are enough good plasterers in Llanelli, so be sure to pick a competent one.

Being simply a base onto which other materials are applied, means that plastered surfaces must be smooth and flat above all else. A badly plastered area can lead to major complications with the wallpapering and painting of the surfaces, any area of tiling (bathrooms or kitchens), the fitting of architraves and the installation of kitchen units.

With plastering it is preferable to get a perfect, polished finish, directly from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from skillful Llanelli plasterers. Sanding (especially by machine) should never be necessary on newly plastered ceilings and walls, a quick rub down with fine paper is all that should be needed. You would be correct in thinking that the plastering has not been done to a competent standard if extensive sanding is necessary. Be very wary of re-hiring plasterers who make use of orbital sanders.

Plastering and Coving Llanelli

Covering up an artexed ceiling, is one of a plasterers most commonly requested tasks in recent times. The "in" finish for ceilings during the 1970's and 80's, artex is not so widely used in Llanelli currently. Plastering over that artex ceiling to make it look more fresh and contemporary is something that most plasterers in Llanelli will jump at the chance to do. If you are a bit retro in your taste, you may wish to give your currently smooth ceilings some character by actually putting on some artex.

Screeding Llanelli: Some plasterers in Llanelli, Wales will also offer floor screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is generally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be left as a wearing floor surface, to cover underfloor heating pipes or to be covered with an appropriate floor finish (such as floor boards, carpet or tiles). A properly laid screed can significantly prolong the life of the whole floor and establish its durability, finish and quality. The mixing of screed by hand must only be used where small areas are involved, and preferably a proper screed pump should be employed to rapidly ensure an even, smooth blend of sand, cement and water and to pump this perfect mix directly to where its needed, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like. There are a number of different kinds of floor screed available in Llanelli, therefore you need to ask around to find which is appropriate for your screeding project, you'll need to pick from traditional screed, fast drying screed, floor levelling compound, free-flowing screed, structural screed, bonded screed and unbonded screed.

Dry Lining Llanelli (Plasterboarding): Some plasterers in Llanelli also offer dry lining services, which are needed in a lot of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is attached to metal framing, a brick surface or a wood studding to form a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. Whilst it is feasible to paint or decorate the plasterboard finish after a bit of filling, normally most like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a masonry or brick wall "dot and dab" bonding is used, when fixing plasterboard to wooden joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used and when fixing to a metal frame self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used.
