Viewing a portfolio of successfully completed projects is a good way to determine the quality of any prospective Newport plasterers, you need to find someone who knows what they are up to. Getting stuck with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering is a situation that you want to avoid without exceptions. Inferior plastering can lead to big problems down the line, and it may not even be apparent until the decorating starts.

As soon as a coat of paint goes on a newly plastered wall, you will soon become aware of any imperfections. They will likely look even worse with the sun shining on them. By using competent plasterers in Newport, you should hopefully avoid problems like this.

It is always good to keep in mind that plaster needs to be smooth and flat, because it is just a base on which other materials are applied. A badly plastered area could cause major problems with bathroom or kitchen tiling, the installation of kitchen units, the fitting of architraves and the painting of walls and ceilings.

You can always tell the busiest Newport plasterers because they invariably get a perfect finish, right from the trowel. It should not ever be necessary to use electric sanders on freshly plastered walls and ceilings, just a quick rub down with a fine glasspaper before decorating. If your finished plastering needs strenuous sanding, you know that it has not been done as it should be. If orbital sanders are being used you need to check the quality of the plastering thoroughly.

Plastering and Coving Newport

Plastering over artexed ceilings is among the most common reasons for calling in plasterers in recent times. During the seventies and eighties, artex was the "in" finish for ceilings in Newport, today that is not the case. To make your old artexed ceiling look more fresh and contemporary, most plasterers in Newport will jump at the chance to plaster over it. On the flip side, if you want to bring back that 1970's style, most plasterers will just as gladly slap some artex on your smooth, featureless ceilings.

Rendering Newport: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mixture of lime, cement, sand and water is applied to external (and sometimes interior) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is popular all over Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire retarding qualities, although it is mainly employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is of course possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, a better alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result.

Screeding Newport: A number of plasterers in Newport, Wales will also provide floor screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is typically applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be left as a wearing floor surface, to take on the final floor finish or to encase underfloor heating pipes. An effectively laid screed can significantly prolong the life of a floor and assure its finish, durability and quality. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used where small areas are involved, otherwise a screed pump should be used to rapidly produce a smooth, even mixture of cement and sand and to transport (pump) this fine mix directly to where its needed, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and other equipment. There are various different types of floor screeding available in Newport, so you should ask to find which is suitable for your project, you will need to choose from fast drying screed, free-flowing screed, floor levelling compound, unbonded screed, structural screed, traditional screed and bonded screed.

Plasterboarding Newport (Dry Lining): Several plasterers in Newport also offer dry lining services, which are needed in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is affixed to a wood studding or joist, a brick surface or a metal framework to create a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst you could decorate the plasterboard surface itself, generally most opt to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coating to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wood joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used.
