Plasterers Newcastle

Newcastle Plasterers: Whether you are looking to have a small patch of plaster repaired, a whole room plastered or need the plastering of your entire property in Newcastle, you will need an experienced and professional plasterer to handle the project for you. Mastering the art of plastering can take many years of practise, so it isn't a job you can do yourself unless you are very confident in what you are doing.

Some plastering work is often necessary, even on modest home improvement jobs. It might be applying some screeding, skimming a dry lined partition, rendering a bare wall or installing coving or decorative mouldings before decorating. In actual fact, it may possibly be any of a host of plastering related chores.

Ask to see some photos of previously completed work when interviewing prospective Newcastle plasterers, anybody who knows their stuff will be glad to do this and have nothing to hide. Plastering requires a focused approach and shouldn't be done by "cowboys". Significant problems can result from shoddy plastering, as you'll quickly come to realise.

When your newly plastered wall is given a coat of paint, any imperfections will soon become noticeable. Defective surfaces become even more emphasized in bright daylight. When you've got the choice between experienced plasterers in Newcastle and poor ones, always use an experienced one.

The primary attribute of plastered surfaces is that they be flat and smooth, forming a level base for other materials to be applied to them. A poorly plastered surface will cause severe difficulties with the accurate fitting of architraves, the fitting of kitchen units, any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms) and the painting and decorating of walls and ceilings.

The aim of the busiest Newcastle plasterers is to get a perfect, polished finish right from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less. Ceilings and walls that have been plastered by a professional, should never need sanding down. You can pretty much assume that the plastering has not been done correctly if strenuous sanding is called for. The alarm bells should certainly start ringing if electric sanders are being used with any frequency.

Newcastle Plastering and Coving

Covering up an old artex ceiling, is one of a plasterers most commonly requested tasks in recent times. Hundreds of houses in Newcastle had ceilings which were coated with artex during the 70's and 80's, when it was at its height of popularity. To give your ceilings that sleek and contemporary look once more, most plasterers in Newcastle will be happy to cover them with plaster. Plastering over artex is preferred to removing it because it is quite difficult to take off or repair, which is likely why its popularity waned in the first place.

Rendering Newcastle: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of lime, cement, sand and water is applied to external (and sometimes internal) walls to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resisting qualities, although it is predominately used for cosmetic purposes. While it is acceptable to paint a rendered surface, a more effective option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.

Pebble Dashing Newcastle: Some folks love it and some folks hate it but pebbledashing has been around for many years and used to decorate and protect the external walls of dwellings in Newcastle. There are pebble dashing specialists out there, but quite often Newcastle plasterers will do this kind of work for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a form of exterior wall coating usually consisting of a couple of layers of a base coat made from lime and sand onto which small pebbles or gravel are pressed to create a decorative, maintenance free and robust finish on both new and renovated structures.

Dry Lining Newcastle (Plasterboarding): A number of plasterers in Newcastle also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in a lot of home improvements. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is mounted on a metal framework, a brickwork surface or a wood studding or joist to form a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. Whilst you can decorate the plasterboard finish itself, normally most opt to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coating to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used, when fixing to a metal frame self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing to a masonry or brick wall the "dot and dab" method is used.
