There are a lot of home improvement projects, even small ones, which end up with some plastering work needing to be done. It might be applying some screeding, plaster skimming a partition, fitting coving or cornices before decorating or re-plastering a ceiling. In truth, it could possibly be any of a number of plastering related tasks.

Hiring a plasterer who knows exactly what they're doing is the most critical thing, so ask potential Poole plasterers if they can show you a portfolio of their accomplished work. Plastering requires a focused approach and should not be done by "cowboys". Inferior plastering is worse than no plastering at all, as it is very difficult to put right down the road.

When you start decorating the imperfections will start to show up. Any defective plastered surface will look even worse in bright daylight. You'll avoid this problem by only selecting from competent plasterers in Poole.

You must never forget that the plastering is the base on which other materials are applied, so it has to be smooth and level. A badly plastered surface can cause severe issues with the painting of walls and ceilings, the tiling of wall surfaces, the accurate fitting or skirting boards and the fitting of kitchen units.

You can always tell the finest Poole plasterers because they almost always get a perfect, polished, directly 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 paper before decorating. You might reasonably anticipate some areas that need a bit of work with sandpaper, but not to any great degree. If orbital sanders are being used you should check out the quality of the plastering meticulously.

Plastering and Coving Poole

One of the most regular tasks for plasterers these days, is plastering over old artex ceilings. The "in" finish for ceilings in the seventies and eighties, artex is not so fashionable in Poole at present. Those dated artex ceilings can be made to look sleek and modern once again by bringing in your Poole plasterer to cover them up. Plastering over artex is preferable to removing it because it is quite hard to get off or repair, which is probably why its popularity waned in the first place.

Rendering Poole: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mixture of sand, cement, lime and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes interior) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is very popular all around Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire retarding properties, though it's mostly employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is of course possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, an even better solution is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.

Plasterboarding Poole (Dry Lining): A few plasterers in Poole also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be needed in a lot of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is affixed to a metal framework, a timber studding or joist or a brickwork surface to produce a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. Whilst you could decorate or paint the plasterboard finish itself after a bit of filling, in reality most opt to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coating afterwards to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a masonry or brick wall "dot and dab" bonding is used, when fixing plasterboard to wooden stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.
