The most important step is to employ a plasterer who knows exactly what they are up to and has a portfolio of successfully accomplished work that they are prepared to show you.

Plasterer in Pitsea (01268)

You can always tell skillful Pitsea plasterers because they consistently get a polished finish, directly from the trowel. You should be able to recognise when plastering has been done by a professional, because a quick rub down is all that is required and no sanding is necessary. If any degree of forceful sanding is necessary to flatten out the plastered areas, they were not competently done to begin with. If the use of electric sanding machines is becoming commonplace, there's definately something is amiss with your plasterer.

Plastering and Coving Pitsea

In recent times, one of the most common tasks a plasterer is asked to do, is cover up an old artex ceiling. At present out of favour in Pitsea, artex was the most popular decorative finish for ceilings during the 1970's and 80's. To make your artex ceiling look more fresh and contemporary, most plasterers in Pitsea will be happy to plaster over it. Plastering over artex is preferred to removing it as it is pretty difficult to get off or repair, which is no doubt why its popularity waned in the first place.

Do-it-Yourself Plastering Pitsea: When you have plastering work which needs to be done in Pitsea, you've really got a couple of options. You can either contact a competent plasterer to complete the job, or have a crack yourself. Unless you are reasonably good at do-it-yourself and have got the self-assurance to handle the job, perhaps it's best left to the professionals. Picking an area that's already got a poorly plastered finish is a wise idea to start with, so that your amateurish plastering efforts can hardly make it any worse. A spare bedroom or an out-of-sight area would be a good start. This is going to be much less stressful for you, and enable you to spend a bit of time testing out your newly acquired skills. It's possible to re-plaster a wall surface as many times as you like to a certain extent, and you can easily have another go if you don't do a great job at the first attempt.

Before you can decorate over it, you should leave it to dry out thoroughly for a few days. You will end up getting a totally flat and fault-free surface which will endure for years to come.

Renderers Pitsea

Rendering Pitsea Essex UK

Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process where a mixture of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to exterior (and occasionally internal) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is really widespread in the Mediterranean region, but is also extremely popular all over Southern Europe. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire retarding qualities, although it's mainly used for cosmetic purposes. You can obtain a longer lasting and more durable finish by colouring the render mix itself, even though it is quite possible to apply paint to a rendered wall.

Dry Lining (Plasterboarding) Pitsea

Dry Lining Pitsea (Plasterboarding)

There are plenty of home refurbishment assignments that will require dry lining to be carried out, and some Pitsea plasterers will be able to tackle this for you. A process that creates a stable wall surface which does not need to be plastered, dry lining is mounted on a timber studding, a brickwork surface or metal Gypframe. While you could decorate or paint the plasterboard surface after a bit of filling, generally most folks prefer to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coating to give it a smoother and harder finish. In terms of fittings, when attaching to a metal Gypframe self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used, when attaching to a brick or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used.
