Employing a plasterer who knows exactly what they are up to is the most important thing, so ask potential Ryde plasterers if they can show you a portfolio of their previous work. You do not want to get landed with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering. Shoddy plastering is worse than no plastering at all, as it is very hard to put right down the road.

When a coat of paint is applied to your newly plastered ceilings and walls, the defects will become blindingly obvious. Defective surfaces become even more emphasized in bright sunlight. It really is a no brainer that you should steer clear of poor tradesmen, and pick only from decent plasterers in Ryde.

It is always good to keep in mind that plaster has to be level and smooth, because it is simply a base on which other materials are applied. A poorly plastered surface can cause severe difficulties with the fitting of skirtings, the fitting of kitchen units, bathroom or kitchen tiling and the decorating of walls and ceilings.

You can always tell the most experienced Ryde plasterers because they consistently get a polished finish, straight from the trowel. A quick rub down before decorating is all that a plastered wall or ceiling should need, it should never require sanding. If vigorous sanding is required, you can pretty much assume that the plastering has not been done properly. You should check out the quality of the plastering thoroughly, if you see orbital sanders being used.

Ryde Plastering and Coving

In recent times, a common reason to call in a plasterer is to cover an old artexed ceiling. Artex was at its height of popularity in Ryde during the seventies and eighties, but today it is out of fashion. Those old artex ceilings can be made to look fresh and modern once again by bringing in your Ryde plasterer to cover them up. Those of you who are more retro in taste might want your artex ceilings restored and brought back to their former glory.

Rendering Ryde: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process where 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 particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish has some fire resistant properties and is waterproof, though it is mostly employed for aesthetic purposes. While of course it is possible to paint a rendered wall, an even better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result.
