Plastering March

March Plasterers: When your home in March needs some plastering work doing, it doesn't matter whether big or small, you will be wanting to locate a competent and professional plasterer to do the job with much care and attention. Plastering is not really a job you can do yourself, it takes years of practise to master.

A certain amount of plastering work can be generated by even the smallest home improvement projects. It could be installing coving or cornices before decorating, plastering over artex, latex screeding or skimming a dry lined partition. In fact, it may possibly be any of a host of plastering related jobs.

March Plasterers

The most important detail is to hire a plasterer who knows what they are up to and has a portfolio of successfully accomplished jobs that they can allow you to study. Plastering requires an organised attitude and should not be attempted by "cowboys". You'll soon come to realise the many problems that can arise as a result of inferior plastering.

The defects will soon manifest on the freshly plastered wall as soon as a coat of paint has been applied to it. Your newly plastered surfaces will appear even worse with the sun shining on them. It is really a no brainer that you should steer clear of poor tradesmen, and choose only from decent plasterers in March.

It is always good to keep in mind that plaster should be smooth and level, because it is simply a base on which other materials are applied. A shoddily plastered area could cause major difficulties with the wallpapering and painting of ceilings and walls, the fitting of skirting boards, the installation of kitchen units and the tiling of wall surfaces.

Plasterer in March

What you really need is a polished finish right from the trowel, and the busiest March plasterers can be expected to produce results like this. You can tell when plastering has been done by an expert, because a quick rub down is all that is required and no heavy sanding is necessary. Actually, if any significant amount of sanding is needed, you can assume that your plasterer was not as skillful as was claimed. If you see the power sanders coming out you should be very suspicious.

March Plastering and Coving

These days, one of the most common tasks a plasterer is asked to do, is cover up an old artexed ceiling. There are still a large number of ceilings in March which are decorated with this once popular finish. Those artex ceilings can be made to look sleek and contemporary once again by bringing in your March plasterer to cover them up. On the other hand, if you want to bring back that old style, most plasterers will just as gladly slap some artex on your smooth, featureless ceilings.

Screeding March: Several plasterers in March, Cambridgeshire can also offer a floor screeding service, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is typically applied over a rougher concrete sub-floor to be left as a wearing floor surface, to encase underfloor heating pipes or to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as floor boards, tiles or carpet). A correctly laid screed can significantly prolong the lifespan of the whole floor and establish its finish, durability and quality. Hand mixing screed should only be used for small areas, and preferably a screed pump should be used to quickly produce a smooth, even 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. There are several different types of floor screeding available in March, therefore you need to ask to find which is suitable for your project, you'll need to choose from fast drying screed, floor levelling compound, bonded screed, structural screed, unbonded screed, free-flowing screed and traditional screed.

Dry Lining March: A few plasterers in March also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which are required in plenty of improvement projects. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is attached to a wooden studding, a brick or masonry surface or metal Gypframe to create a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. Whilst it is possible to decorate or paint the plasterboard finish after a bit of filling, in reality most folks choose to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat afterwards to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to timber studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.
