Viewing a portfolio of successfully accomplished work is a good way to assess the quality of any potential Rawtenstall plasterers, you need to find someone who knows exactly what they're doing. This isn't the sort of work you want to be trusting to "cowboys". Substandard plastering is worse than no plastering at all, as it is very difficult to put right down the road.

When a coat of paint is applied to your freshly plastered walls and ceilings, the defects will become glaringly obvious. Your freshly plastered surfaces will appear even worse with the sunlight shining on them. By picking only from experienced plasterers in Rawtenstall, you will avoid such problems.

Flat and smooth are the key attributes of a plastered surface, since other materials will always be applied to it. A badly plastered area will lead to severe complications with any area of tiling, the painting and decorating of walls and ceilings, the accurate fitting of architraves and the installation of kitchen units.

With plastering it is preferable to get a polished finish, straight from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from top notch Rawtenstall plasterers. Walls and ceilings that have been plastered by a professional, should never need to be sanded down. If any degree of strenuous sanding is needed to flatten out the plastered areas, they were not competently done in the first place. There is certainly something amiss with your plasterer, if you hear the buzz of orbital sanders.

Rawtenstall Plastering and Coving

Plastering over an artex ceiling is one common reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times. During the seventies and eighties, artex was the "in" finish for ceilings in Rawtenstall, right now that is not so much the case. To give your ceilings that fresh and modern look once more, most plasterers in Rawtenstall will be more than happy to cover them with plaster. Most plasterers will also be glad to apply a coat of artex if you'd like to bring back that 1970's style to your ceilings.

Rendering Rawtenstall: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of lime, cement, sand and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes interior) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is popular all around Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resistant properties, although it's largely used for aesthetic purposes. While it is acceptable to paint a rendered surface, an even better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable finish.

Screeding Rawtenstall: Many plasterers in Lancashire also provide floor screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is normally applied over a concrete sub-floor to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface, to take on the final floor finish or to encase underfloor heating pipes. A correctly laid screed can considerably prolong the life of a floor and establish its durability, quality and finish. Hand mixing screed should only be used where smaller areas are involved, in all other cases a proper screed pump should be employed to speedily guarantee an even, smooth blend of sand, cement and water and to transport (pump) this perfect mix straight to its exact location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like.

Plasterboarding Rawtenstall (Dry Lining): A few plasterers in Rawtenstall also provide dry lining services, which will be needed in plenty of home improvements. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is fixed to a wooden studding or joist, a metal frame or a brickwork surface to form a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. While it is possible to decorate the plasterboard surface as it is, usually most people elect to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine layer of plaster afterwards to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wooden studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.
