The main thing that you can expect from the most sought after Newbury plasterers is the perfect finish, right from the trowel. A plastered ceiling or wall should never need to be sanded down to get a nice finish, it should only require a quick rub with fine glasspaper before it is decorated. Actually, if any significant amount of sanding is required, you can assume that your plasterer was not as skillful as was claimed. The alarm bells should certainly start ringing out if power sanders are being used with any regularity.

Plastering and Coving Newbury

These days, one of the most common tasks a plasterer is asked to do, is plaster over an artex ceiling. A popular form of finish in Newbury during the Nineteen Seventies and Eighties, artex is pretty much out of favour at present. To make your old artexed ceiling look more sleek and modern, most plasterers in Newbury will gladly plaster over it. Plastering over artex is preferable to removing it because it is quite hard to get off or repair, which is likely why its popularity has waned.

Screeding Newbury: Some plasterers in Newbury can also provide a floor screeding service, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is usually put on top of a concrete sub-floor to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface, to cover underfloor heating pipes or to take on the final floor finish. An effectively laid screed can help to prolong the life 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 used to rapidly produce an even, smooth mixture of cement, sand and water and to pump this fine mix straight to its required location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such. There are a number of different types of floor screed available in Newbury, so you need to inquire about which is suitable for your particular project, you will be choosing from unbonded screed, traditional screed, structural screed, fast drying screed, free-flowing screed, bonded screed and floor levelling compound.

Plaster Newbury: Plaster is a common building material used for decorating or protecting ceilings and walls in Newbury, and for creating decorative elements. In the United Kingdom the term "plaster" ordinarily pertains to a material that is used on the interior of buildings, whilst the material used on exterior surfaces is referred to as "render". The most commonplace kinds of plaster primarily contain either cement, gypsum, or lime, though all pretty much work in the same way. Plaster is a dry powder when manufactured and when needed, is combined with water to produce a stiff, easy to work paste immediately before application. The reaction between the water and the plaster powder generates heat through crystallization and the mixture consequently hardens. (Tags: Plaster Newbury, Render Newbury, Plastering Newbury)
