Plasterers March

March Plasterers: Whenever there is plastering work to be carried out on your home in March, whether small or large, you should be calling on a skilled and professional plasterer to accomplish this task. Plastering is not normally a job that you should attempt yourself, it's a craft that often takes many years of practise.

There are a lot of home improvement projects, even modest ones, which end up with some plastering work having to be carried out. It might be skimming a partition, installing cornices or coving before decorating, re-plastering a ceiling or latex screeding. In truth, it could possibly be any one of a number of plastering related tasks.

Plasterers March

There are numerous ways to find out if potential March plasterers know their stuff, one way is to ask for a portfolio of previous jobs. You should avoid hiring "cowboys" for this type of work, without exceptions. Substandard plastering is worse than no plastering at all, as it is very difficult to put right later on.

It's when the painting and decorating starts that any defects become glaringly obvious to the naked eye. In bright sunshine your defective plastered surfaces will look even worse. When you have the choice between experienced plasterers in March and poor ones, always use an experienced one.

Because plaster is always covered up by other materials it is easy to forget how important it is that it is level and smooth. A shoddily plastered area can cause serious difficulties with the fitting of skirting boards, any area of tiling, the wallpapering and painting of walls and ceilings and the installation of kitchen units.

A perfect finish, straight from the trowel is what you can expect from professional March plasterers. A quick rub down before decorating is all that a plastered wall or ceiling should need, it should never need to be sanded. You might realistically anticipate some areas that need a little work with sandpaper, but not to any great extent. If electric sanding machines are being used you might want to check out the quality of the plastering meticulously.

March Plastering and Coving

Though you might call on the services of a plasterer for many different tasks, a common reason in recent times is for plastering over artexed ceilings. A popular decorative finish for ceilings in March during the seventies and eighties, the popularity of artex has waned as of late. In order to get your ceilings looking fresh and contemporary once more, your March plasterer will jump at the chance to cover them up with a smooth new finish. If the contrary is the case, then most plasterers will bring that 1970's style back once more by slapping on a coat of artex.

Rendering March: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mixture of cement, sand, lime and water is applied to exterior (and now and again interior) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resisting properties, though it is mainly used for aesthetic purposes. While it is acceptable to apply paint to a rendered wall, a much better alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable result.

Screeding in March

Screeding March: Certain plasterers in Cambridgeshire can also offer a floor screeding service, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is typically applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to take on the final floor finish, to be left as a wearing floor surface or to encase underfloor heating pipes. An effectively laid screed can help to increase the lifespan of the whole floor and positively affect its durability, finish and quality. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used where smaller areas are involved, in all other instances a proper screed pump should be employed to rapidly produce an even, smooth blend of cement and sand and to transport (pump) this perfect mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and other paraphernalia. There are different kinds of floor screed available in March, so you should ask around to find which is suitable for your screeding project, you will need to choose from fast drying screed, floor levelling compound, free-flowing screed, unbonded screed, traditional screed, bonded screed and structural screed.

Dry Lining March (Plasterboarding): Quite a few plasterers in March also provide dry lining services, which are required in a lot of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is affixed to metal Gypframe, a wooden studding or joist or a masonry or brickwork surface to form a wall surface that does not need plastering. While you can decorate or paint the plasterboard surface itself, in general most folks like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine coat of plaster to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wooden joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" bonding compound is used.

Artexing March CambridgeshireArtexing March: While more common throughout the 1970's and 1980's artex still is an easy way to enhance the appearance of ceilings, especially cracked or shabby ones. It isn't quite as simple to obtain a plasterer who will do artexing presently, whereby previously there were quite a lot of tradespeople who did very little else but apply artex and do artex patching. The thing that enhanced its popularity was probably the wide variety of designs and styles it could be fashioned in, and it appeared that everybody had their favourite design, perhaps it was pairs, medusa, basket & flowers, criss-cross, scroll, bark, circles, stipple, hook & line, broken leather or swirl. Whatever your taste was, you would be able to find a style of artex to fit. You can obviously still have ceilings done in all of these artex designs nowadays, simply locate a local March plasterer who frequently performs this type of work, rather that one which will simply "have a bash", by doing this you can make certain you will get a good job done of it. The one disadvantage of artex, and what probably brought about its decline, is it's difficult to patch or repair.
