There is definately something amiss with your plasterer, if you hear the buzz of electric sanding machines.

Screeding Royton: Certain plasterers in Royton can also provide screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is generally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to take on the final floor finish, to cover underfloor heating pipes or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. A properly laid screed can significantly lengthen the life of the complete floor and positively affect its finish, quality and durability. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used where small areas are involved, and preferably a screed pump should be used to swiftly ensure a smooth, even mix of cement and sand and to transport (pump) this perfect mix straight to its required location, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such.

Dry Lining Royton (Plasterboarding): Certain plasterers in Royton also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which are needed in plenty of home improvement jobs. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is affixed to a brick surface, metal framing or a timber studding to create a wall surface that does not need plastering. Whilst you could decorate or paint the plasterboard finish itself, in general most folks opt to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine layer of plaster afterwards to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to timber joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used, when fixing to a metal frame Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used and when fixing to a brick or masonry wall "dot and dab" drywall adhesive is used.
