The most important thing is to employ a plasterer who knows what they are up to and has a portfolio of successfully completed jobs that they can show you. Getting saddled with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering is a scenario that you want to avoid without exceptions. It is very difficult to correct shoddy plastering after the event, so it needs to be done right from the get go.

It is when the painting and decorating starts that any imperfections become blindingly obvious. Such imperfections will be even more accentuated when viewed in bright sunlight. There are lots of good plasterers in Newport, so make sure you pick a decent one.

Being smooth and level is the most crucial attribute for plastered surfaces, because they are just a base upon which other materials are applied. A shoddily plastered area will cause severe difficulties with the fitting of kitchen units, the accurate fitting or skirting boards, the tiling of wall surfaces and the painting and wallpapering of the surfaces.

A perfect, polished finish, straight from the trowel is what you can expect from skilled Newport plasterers. Sanding (particularly by machine) should never be necessary on newly plastered ceilings and walls, a quick rub down with fine glasspaper is all that should be needed. If your finished plastering needs strenuous sanding, you know that it hasn't been done properly. If electric sanders are being used you might want to check the quality of the plastering thoroughly.

Newport Plastering and Coving

Plastering over artex ceilings is one of the most common reasons for calling in plasterers these days. The "in" finish for ceilings during the 1970's and 80's, artex is not so fashionable in Newport currently. To make your old artex ceiling look more sleek and contemporary, most plasterers in Newport will be more than happy to plaster over it. Many plasterers will also gladly put on a coat of artex if you would like to bring back that 70's style for your ceilings.

Pebble Dashing Newport: Love it or hate it pebble dashing has been around for many years and used to decorate and protect the outside of houses in Wales. There are pebbledashing specialists around, but quite often Newport plasterers will happily do this sort of work for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a type of external wall covering generally consisting of two layers of a base made of lime and sand onto which small gravel or pebbles are pressed to form a strong, maintenance free and decorative finish on both renovated and new structures.

Dry Lining Newport: A number of plasterers in Newport also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is affixed to a metal framework, a masonry or brickwork surface or a wood studding or joist to form a wall surface that does not need plastering. Whilst it is feasible to decorate or paint the plasterboard surface as it is, in reality most people choose to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin layer of plaster to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used, when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing plasterboard to wood joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used.
