Hiring a plasterer who knows exactly what they are up to is the most critical thing, so ask potential Redditch plasterers if they can show you a portfolio of their previous work.

You can always tell skillful Redditch plasterers because they invariably get a perfect finish, directly from the trowel. Walls and ceilings that have been plastered by a professional, should never need to be sanded down. If your finished plastering needs strenuous sanding, you know that it hasn't been done as it should be. Be very wary of re-hiring plasterers who make regular use of orbital sanders.

Redditch Plastering and Coving

Plastering over an artex ceiling is a common reason for calling in a plasterer nowadays. During the nineteen seventies and eighties, artex was the "in" finish for ceilings in Redditch, currently that is not the case. Those artexed ceilings can be made to look fresh and contemporary once again by bringing in your Redditch plasterer to cover them up. If however, you want to bring a bit of that 1970's style back into your home, most plasterers will be just as glad to apply artex as they are to plaster over it.

Rendering Redditch: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mixture of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to exterior (and now and again interior) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is extremely popular throughout Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resisting properties, although it is predominately employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is quite possible to paint a rendered wall, a better alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable result.

Screeding Redditch: Certain plasterers in Redditch, Worcestershire can also provide a floor screeding service, whereby a new level floor surface is formed using a cement mix. Screeding is usually applied over a rougher concrete sub-floor to be covered with a floor finish (such as tiles, vinyl or wood), to be left as a wearing floor surface or to encase underfloor heating pipes. A properly laid screed can help to prolong the life of a floor and positively affect its quality, durability and finish. The hand mixing of screed should only be used where smaller areas are involved, and preferably a screed pump should be employed to speedily guarantee a smooth, even blend of sand, cement and water and to transport (pump) this perfect mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such. There are different sorts of floor screeding available in Redditch, therefore you need to ask around to find which is appropriate for your screeding project, you will need to choose from structural screed, fast drying screed, floor levelling compound, bonded screed, traditional screed, unbonded screed and free-flowing screed.

Plasterboarding Redditch (Dry Lining): A number of plasterers in Redditch also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in a lot of home improvements. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is attached to a timber studding or joist, a brickwork surface or metal Gypframe to create a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst it's feasible to paint or decorate the plasterboard finish itself after a bit of filling, in general most people like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used, when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.
