Even seemingly minor home improvement projects can generate the need for plastering work. It could be plaster skimming dry lining, re-plastering a ceiling, plaster repair to get ready for tiling or installing coving or decorative mouldings before decorating. In fact, it might be any of a number of plastering related jobs.

Sale Plasterers

Before any work begins you need to check out potential Sale plasterers to see if they know their stuff. Ask to see some photos or a portfolio of completed work. You want to avoid hiring "cowboys" for this kind of work, at all costs. Untrained plasterers result in poor quality plastering and down the line this can cause huge problems.

The defects will soon show up on the newly plastered wall the moment a coat of paint has been applied to it. Uneven surfaces become even more emphasized in bright daylight. So, make sure you only consider decent plasterers in Sale.

Flat and smooth are the main attributes of a plastered surface, since other materials will always be applied to it. An imperfectly plastered surface can cause major difficulties with the fitting of kitchen units, the decorating of the surfaces, any area of tiling (bathrooms or kitchens) and fitting architraves.

Plasterer in Sale

What you really need is a polished finish right from the trowel, and competent Sale plasterers can be expected to produce results like this. A plastered wall or ceiling should never have to be sanded down to get a good finish, it should only require a quick rub with fine glasspaper before it is decorated. If your finished plastering needs strenuous sanding, you know that it hasn't been done as it should be. If you see the electric sanders coming out you should be very wary.

Sale Plastering and Coving

In recent times, one of the most common jobs a plasterer is requested to do, is plaster over an artex ceiling. A much loved decorative finish for ceilings in Sale during the nineteen seventies and eighties, the popularity of artex has decreased recently. To give your ceilings that sleek and modern look once again, most plasterers in Sale will be more than happy to cover them with plaster. If however, you want to bring a bit of that 70's style back into your home, most plasterers will be just as glad to coat your ceiling with artex as they are to cover it up.

Rendering Sale: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of cement, sand, lime and water is applied to external (and sometimes interior) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is very popular all around Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish has some fire resistant qualities and is waterproof, though it's generally employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a much better solution is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result.

Plasterboarding Sale (Dry Lining): Many plasterers in Sale also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be needed in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is attached to metal Gypframe, a brick surface or a timber studding to produce a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst you can paint or decorate the plasterboard finish as it is, normally most prefer to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coating to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" bonding compound is used, when fixing plasterboard to wood joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal Gypframe Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.

Sale plastering specialists can normally help you with skimming over existing plasterwork, blown plaster, artex restoration and removal, plastering over artex, flood and fire renovations, repairing holes in ceilings and walls, drywall plastering and skimming, the rendering of breeze blocks, artexing preparation, pebble dashing restoration, coving and ceiling roses, traditional coving, wall crack repairs, ceiling replacements and other plastering work in Sale, Greater Manchester.
