Plastering requires a methodical attitude and should not be attempted by "cowboys". You will quickly come to realise the many problems that can arise as a result of substandard plastering.

It is when the painting and decorating begins that any imperfections become glaringly obvious. In bright sunlight your substandard plastered surfaces will look even worse. It really is a no brainer that you should avoid dodgy tradesmen, and pick only from experienced plasterers in Rainham.

Plaster always need to be smooth and flat, because it is just a base on which other materials are applied. An imperfectly plastered surface could cause serious complications with the accurate fitting or skirting boards, the fitting of kitchen units, any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms) and the painting and wallpapering of the surfaces.

What you really need is a polished finish right from the trowel, and competent Rainham plasterers can be trusted to produce results like this. You can recognize when plastering has been carried out by an expert, because a quick rub down is all that is required and no heavy sanding is necessary. If the plastering has not been done properly, forceful sanding may be needed, and this calls the plasterers ability into question. You should check the quality of the plastering thoroughly, if you see electric sanding machines being used.

Plastering and Coving Rainham

One common reason for calling in a plasterer these days, is to plaster over an artexed ceiling. A popular decorative finish for ceilings in Rainham during the seventies and eighties, the popularity of artex has decreased recently. To get all your artexed ceilings looking fresh and modern again, most Rainham plasterers will jump at the chance to plaster over them. Plastering over artex is preferred to removing it as it is pretty hard to get off or repair, which is likely why its popularity has waned.

Rendering Rainham: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of cement, sand, lime and water is applied to external (and sometimes interior) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is a popular method across Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resistant qualities, although it's mainly employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is acceptable to apply paint to a rendered wall, a more effective alternative is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result.

Screeder Rainham

Screeding Rainham: Many plasterers in Rainham, Essex will also provide floor screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is typically applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to encase underfloor heating pipes, to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as floor boards, vinyl, carpet or tiles) or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. A correctly laid screed can considerably extend the life of the whole floor and establish its durability, finish and quality. Hand mixing screed should only be used for smaller areas, in all other instances a proper screed pump should be used to swiftly ensure a smooth, even mix of cement and sand and to pump this fine mix directly to where its needed, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such. There are different sorts of floor screed available in Rainham, so you need to ask around about which is appropriate for your project, you will be choosing from traditional screed, bonded screed, structural screed, unbonded screed, floor levelling compound, free-flowing screed and fast drying screed.
