The most important detail is to hire a plasterer who knows exactly what they're up to and has a portfolio of successfully completed jobs that they can let you see. For this type of work, you don't want to be employing "cowboys". Though it may not always be immediately apparent, shoddy plastering can lead to huge problems down the line.

Being simply a base onto which other materials are applied, means that plastered surfaces must be flat and smooth above all else. A badly plastered surface can lead to severe complications with the painting and wallpapering of ceilings and walls, kitchen or bathroom tiling, the fitting of skirting boards and the fitting of kitchen units.

You should expect nothing less than a perfect, polished finish directly from the trowel. Sanding (particularly by machine) should never be necessary on newly plastered walls and ceilings, a quick rub down with fine glasspaper is all that should be needed. If the plastering hasn't been done properly, forceful sanding may be required, and this calls the plasterers ability into question. If you see the orbital sanders coming out you should be very wary.

Richmond upon Thames Plastering and Coving

Plastering over artex ceilings is among the most common reasons for calling on the services of plasterers in recent times. Artex was at its height of popularity in Richmond upon Thames during the 1970's and 1980's, but at present it is not so fashionable. Your Richmond upon Thames plasterer will gladly cover up those dated artex ceilings and get your home looking sleek and modern once again. Many plasterers will also be glad to slap on a coat of artex if you would like to bring back that old style to your ceilings.

Rendering Richmond upon Thames: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to exterior (and occasionally internal) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is extremely popular all around Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resisting qualities, although it is principally employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is quite possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, an even better alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.

Screeding Richmond upon Thames: A few plasterers in Richmond upon Thames will also provide floor screeding services, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is generally put on top of a concrete sub-floor to cover underfloor heating pipes, to be covered with a floor finish (such as carpet, tiles or floor boards) or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. A correctly laid screed can lengthen the life of the whole floor and establish its durability, quality and finish. The mixing of screed by hand must only be used where small areas are involved, in all other cases a screed pump should be used to rapidly guarantee a smooth, even mixture of cement and sand and to pump this perfect mix straight to its required location, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and similar paraphernalia.

Pebbledashing (or pebble dashing) is a form of exterior wall covering normally consisting of 2 layers of a base coat made of sand and lime into which small gravel or pebbles are firmly pressed to form an attractive, strong and maintenance free finish on both renovated and new structures.
