Plasterers Retford

Retford Plasterers: Whether you are thinking about having a small section of plaster repaired, a whole room plastered or need the plastering of your entire property in Retford, you will need a seasoned and professional plasterer to manage the project for you. It is not advisable to attempt plastering yourself, since it is a craft that takes many years to master.

There are a lot of home improvement projects, even smaller ones, which result in some plastering work needing to be carried out. It might be rendering a patched up wall, skimming some dry lining, installing coving or decorative mouldings before decorating or applying some screeding. In truth, it might possibly be any one of dozens of plastering related chores.

Plasterers Retford

Before any work begins you need to check out potential Retford plasterers to see if they know their stuff. Ask to see some photos or a portfolio of completed projects. This isn't the kind of work you want to be trusting to "cowboys". Even poor quality plastering can sometimes look passable at first, but later on, the complications start.

The imperfections will soon manifest on the freshly plastered wall the moment a coat of paint has gone onto it. In bright daylight your defective plastered surfaces will look even worse. It should always be possible to find experienced plasterers in Retford, so why pick an inferior one?

Plaster always need to be smooth and flat, because it is just a base on which other materials are applied. An irregular plastered area could cause severe complications with the installation of kitchen units, the accurate fitting of architraves, kitchen or bathroom tiling and the painting and decorating of walls and ceilings.

A perfect, polished finish, straight from the trowel is what you can expect from top notch Retford plasterers. Sanding is not something that you should ever have to do with a freshly plastered ceiling or wall, merely a quick rub down with fine glasspaper. You can pretty much assume that the plastering hasn't been done properly if vigorous sanding is called for. If electric sanders are being used you might want to check out the quality of the work thoroughly.

Plastering and Coving Retford

Plasterers perform many tasks but among the most commonplace in recent times, is plastering over old artexed ceilings. A widely used form of ceiling finish in Retford during the 1970's and 80's, artex is to some degree out of favour at present. Covering that artex ceiling with plaster is something that most Retford plasterers will jump at the chance to do in order to make it look more fresh and contemporary. If the reverse is the case, then many plasterers will bring that 70's style back again by slapping on a coat of artex.

Rendering Retford: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process by which a mixture of cement, sand, lime and water is applied to external (and occasionally internal) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is extremely popular all around Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire resisting qualities and is water resistant, although it's predominately used for cosmetic purposes. While it is acceptable to paint a rendered surface, a more effective option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.

Dry Lining Retford (Plasterboarding): Some plasterers in Retford also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which are needed in a lot of home improvement tasks. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is affixed to a timber studding, a masonry or brickwork surface or metal Gypframe to produce a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst it's possible to decorate or paint the plasterboard finish after a bit of filling, in reality most opt to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat afterwards to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to timber studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall "dot and dab" bonding is used and when fixing to a metal frame self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.
