Plasterers Neath

Neath Plasterers: Plastering jobs come in all sizes and shapes and no matter how small or large, you will want to locate a qualified and professional plasterer to work on your home in Neath. Plastering is not really something you can do yourself, it takes years of practise to master.

Some plastering work is often necessary, even on modest home improvement jobs. It may be fitting coving or decorative mouldings before decorating, plaster skimming a partition, plaster repair before tiling or plastering over an old artexed ceiling. Actually, it might be any one of dozens of plastering related jobs.

Ask to see some photos of previously completed work when talking to prospective Neath plasterers, anybody that knows their stuff will be glad to do this and have nowt to hide. This isn't the sort of work you want to be trusting to "cowboys". Shoddy plastering is worse than no plastering at all, as it is very hard to put right later.

Any defects will become blindingly obvious once some paint starts going on to your newly plastered walls and ceilings. Such imperfections will be even more highlighted when viewed in bright daylight. It should always be possible to find experienced plasterers in Neath, so why pick a bad one?

It is always good to keep in mind that plaster should be smooth and flat, because it is just a base on which other materials are applied. An irregular plastered surface may lead to severe problems with the tiling of wall surfaces, the painting and decorating of the surfaces, the installation of kitchen units and fitting architraves.

Skilled Neath plasterers have their reputations to keep up and will always aim to get the perfect finish straight from the trowel, whenever possible. Any professional plasterer will tell you that a properly plastered ceiling or wall should never need sanding down to achieve a nice finish. You can assume that the plastering hasn't been done correctly if vigorous sanding is called for. If you hear the buzz of electric sanding machines, you need to do a thorough quality check.

Neath Plastering and Coving

While you might call on the services of a plasterer for many tasks, a typical reason these days is for plastering over artex ceilings. Artex was at its height of popularity in Neath during the 1970's and 1980's, but at present it is not so much so. Your Neath plasterer will gladly cover up those dated artex ceilings and get your home looking sleek and contemporary once again. Those of you who are more retro in taste might wish to have your artex ceilings restored and brought back to their former glory.

Rendering Neath: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of lime, cement, sand and water is applied to external (and now and again interior) walls to achieve a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire retarding properties, though it's generally used for aesthetic purposes. While it is quite possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting end result. (Tags: Rendering Neath, Renderers Neath)

Screeder Neath

Screeding Neath: Certain plasterers in Neath also provide floor screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is normally put on top of a concrete sub-floor to encase underfloor heating pipes, to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as carpet, vinyl, tiles or wood) or to be left as a wearing floor surface. A correctly laid screed can considerably increase the life of the complete floor and establish its quality, finish and durability. Hand mixing screed should only be used for smaller areas, in all other instances a screed pump should be employed to rapidly ensure a smooth, even blend of sand, cement and water and to transport (pump) this fine mix straight to its exact location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such.

Dry Lining Neath (Plasterboarding): Some plasterers in Neath also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in plenty of home improvements. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is mounted on a metal frame, a masonry or brickwork surface or a wooden studding to produce a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst you could decorate or paint the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, in general most folks choose to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin coat of plaster to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to timber studding or joists, drywall screws or nails are used, when fixing to a masonry or brick wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing to a metal framework Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.
