Plastering and Coving Long Eaton

Plastering over an old artexed ceiling is one common reason for calling in a plasterer nowadays. The "in" finish for ceilings throughout the 1970's and 1980's, artex is not so widely used in Long Eaton today. To give your ceilings that sleek and modern look once again, most plasterers in Long Eaton will jump at the chance to cover them with plaster. If however, you would like to bring a bit of that old style back into your home, most plasterers will be just as glad to apply artex as they are to plaster over it.

Rendering Long Eaton: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of sand, cement, lime and water is applied to external (and sometimes interior) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is popular across Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire retarding qualities, though it is mostly employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, an even better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable result.

Long Eaton Screeders

Screeding Long Eaton: Some plasterers in Long Eaton, Derbyshire also offer floor screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a cement mix. Screeding is generally applied over a rougher concrete sub-floor to be covered with a floor finish (such as floor boards, carpet, vinyl or tiles), to cover underfloor heating pipes or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. An effectively laid screed can considerably extend the life of the whole floor and positively affect its quality, finish and durability. The mixing of screed by hand is only suitable for smaller areas, in all other instances a proper screed pump should be employed to rapidly ensure a smooth, even blend of cement, sand and water and to pump this perfect mix directly to where its needed, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and similar paraphernalia.

Dry Lining Long Eaton: A number of plasterers in Long Eaton also provide dry lining services, which are required in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is affixed to a masonry or brickwork surface, a timber studding or metal Gypframe to form a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst it's possible to decorate or paint the plasterboard finish itself after a bit of filling, in general most people prefer to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat afterwards to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal framework Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used, when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used and when fixing plasterboard to timber joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used.

Plaster Long Eaton: Plaster is a common building material used for protecting or decorating ceilings and walls in Long Eaton, and for the production of decorative elements. In the UK the term "plaster" commonly pertains to a material that's applied to the interiors of homes, while the material used on exterior surfaces is termed "render". The most frequently used kinds of plaster generally contain either lime, cement, or gypsum, but all these elements basically work in the same way. Plaster is a dry powder when manufactured and when required, is simply blended with water to form a stiff but easy to work paste just before application. The reaction between the plaster and water generates heat by way of crystallization and the mixture then hardens. (Tags: Plastering Long Eaton, Plaster Long Eaton, Render Long Eaton)
