A perfect finish, directly from the trowel is what you can expect from the most experienced Oadby plasterers. Sanding (especially by machine) should never be necessary on newly plastered ceilings and walls, a quick rub down with fine paper is all that should be needed. You might realistically expect some areas that need a bit of work with sandpaper, but not to any great extent. The alarm bells should certainly be ringing if electric sanding machines are being utilized with any frequency.

Plastering and Coving Oadby

In recent times, one of the most common jobs a plasterer is requested to do, is cover up an old artex ceiling. A widely used decorative finish for ceilings in Oadby during the 1970's and 1980's, the popularity of artex has waned as of late. Covering that artexed ceiling with plaster is something that most Oadby plasterers will gladly do in order to make it look more fresh and contemporary. Many plasterers will also gladly apply a coat of artex if you'd like to bring back that 70's style for your ceilings.

Dry Lining Oadby (Plasterboarding): Some plasterers in Oadby also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be needed in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is mounted on a brickwork or masonry surface, metal framing or a wood studding or joist to create a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst you may decorate the plasterboard surface as it is, usually most choose to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brick or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used, when fixing to a metal Gypframe Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used and when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used.

Plaster Oadby: Plaster is a common building material that is used for protecting or decorating walls and ceilings in Oadby, and for creating decorative elements. In the United Kingdom the term "plaster" commonly pertains to a material that is used on the inside of houses, while the material used on outside areas is termed "render". The most common forms of plaster mostly contain either cement, lime, or gypsum, and all these ingredients pretty much work in the same way. Plaster is a powder when manufactured and when needed, is simply blended with water to create a stiff, easy to work paste immediately before application. The resulting reaction between the plaster and water generates heat through crystallization and the mixture subsequently hardens. (Tags: Render Oadby, Plastering Oadby, Plaster Oadby)
