The aim of the most experienced Radcliffe plasterers is to get the perfect finish directly from the trowel, and you should count on nothing less. A plastered wall or ceiling should never have to be sanded down to get a good finish, it should only need a quick rub down with fine glasspaper prior to decorating. If extensive sanding is occurring, the plastering wasn't done properly to begin with. If electric sanders are being used you need to check the quality of the plastering meticulously.

Radcliffe Screeders (M26)

Screeding is a technique through which a smooth, level floor surface is established by using a cement mix. Screed is usually applied over a concrete sub-floor to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as floor boards, carpet, vinyl or tiles), to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface or to encase underfloor heating pipes. This will help to increase the life of the complete floor and assure its finish, durability and quality, for several years. The mixing of screed by hand must only be used where smaller areas are involved, in all other instances a proper screed pump should be used to speedily guarantee an even, smooth mix of sand, cement and water and to pump this perfect mix directly to its required location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like. There are several different sorts of floor screeding available in Radcliffe, so you should inquire to find which is suitable for your screeding project, you will need to pick from structural screed, fast drying screed, free-flowing screed, traditional screed, floor levelling compound, bonded screed and unbonded screed.

Exactly What is Plaster?

Plaster Products

Used for protecting and decorating ceilings and walls in buildings, plaster is a material which has been in use since the days of the ancient Egyptians. What most of us call "plaster" in the United Kingdom is usually understood to be the material which is used for coating the internal rooms of buildings and homes, whilst that which is used externally is called "render" or "rendering". The plaster formula itself can contain various compounds but most commonly consist of either cement, gypsum, or lime. All these mixtures pretty much work in the same way, but have different uses. A dry, fine powder at the time of manufacture, when required plaster is mixed with water to form a stiff, easily workable paste. The mixing of the water and the plaster powder causes a chemical reaction, and heat is generated through crystallization, which makes the resulting paste go hard. Quality Radcliffe plastering contractors will supply their own plaster or plastering products, but if you wish to buy some yourself head to Screwfix, Travis and Perkins, Wickes, British Gypsum or B&Q.
