Any decent Port Talbot plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some photos) of successfully completed jobs, ask to see it so that you can make sure they know their stuff. Getting saddled with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering is a situation that you want to avoid no matter what.

It is always good to keep in mind that plaster has to be smooth and level, because it is just a base on which other materials are applied.

Professional Port Talbot plasterers will get a perfect, polished finish straight from the trowel. A quick rub down before decorating is all that a plastered wall or ceiling should need, it should never need to be sanded. You would be right in thinking that the plastering has not been done to a competent standard if too much sanding is required. Be very suspicious of re-hiring plasterers who make use of orbital sanders.

Plastering and Coving Port Talbot

Plastering over old artex ceilings is one of the most common reasons for calling on the services of plasterers these days. During the 1970's and 80's, artex was the "in" finish for ceilings in Port Talbot, right now that is not the case. Covering that old artex ceiling with plaster is something that most Port Talbot plasterers will be happy to do so as to make it look more fresh and modern. Plastering over artex is preferable to removing it as it is quite difficult to get off or repair, which is likely why its popularity has waned.

Rendering Port Talbot: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process whereby a mixture of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes interior) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is very popular all around Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resisting properties, although it is largely employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is of course possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a more effective solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result.

Screeder Port Talbot

Screeding Port Talbot: Some plasterers in Port Talbot can also provide floor screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is formed using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is usually applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be covered with an appropriate floor finish (such as tiles, vinyl or wood), to cover underfloor heating pipes or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. An effectively laid screed can prolong the lifespan of the complete floor and ensure its durability, quality and finish. The hand mixing of screed is only appropriate for small areas, in all other cases a screed pump should be employed to swiftly produce an even, smooth mix of sand, cement and water and to pump this fine mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the use of wheelbarrows and similar equipment.
