Screeders Sandy

Screeding is a process through which a smooth, level floor surface is established by the use of a cement and sand mix. Screed is usually applied over a rougher concrete sub-floor to be covered with a floor finish (such as carpet, floor boards or tiles), to be left as a wearing floor surface or to cover underfloor heating pipes. This will help to prolong the life of the complete floor and positively affect its finish, durability and quality, for several years. Screed should only be mixed by hand when relatively small areas of flooring are being worked on. For more substantial projects, a quality screed pump must be used to produce an even and smooth mixture of cement and sand, which is then pumped directly to the desired location.


Employed for decorating and protecting the ceilings and walls of buildings, plaster is a material which has been used since the days of the ancient Egyptians. What most of us call "plaster" in the British Isles is usually thought of as the material which is used for coating the interior rooms of homes and structures, while that which is used on outside walls is known as "render" or "rendering". Plaster compounds usually contain either gypsum, lime, or cement, which all work in pretty similar ways. Plaster is is produced in powdered form and when needed, is mixed with water to create a stiff, easily workable paste just prior to application. The merging of the plaster and water causes a reaction, and heat is produced by means of crystallization, which makes the resulting paste harden.

Decorative Plastering Sandy

As a method of protecting and decorating wall surfaces, plastering has been around since the times of the ancient Romans, Egyptians and Greeks. Blends of both mud and clay would have been employed in those long forgotten days. A form of plaster was spread on the interior walls of buildings in 13th century London to help prevent the spread of fires. As you'll notice if you go to visit structures of this time, elaborate plaster of paris or gypsum mouldings and features were widely produced in Victorian and Georgian times. Incredible decorative plaster effects by means of age-old techniques coupled with modern materials can be produced by talented plasterers today. This involves the installation of cornice finishes, coving, corbels, niches, dentils, ceiling roses and brackets.

Plaster Skimming Sandy Bedfordshire

Skimming or re-skimming is a thin coating of plaster applied over old damaged plasterwork, plasterboard or unwanted artex. This is one of the most common tasks which plasterers are asked to tackle. Existing plasterwork is liable to be damaged during home renovations, or new dry lined walls might be added. A two coat plaster skim carried out by an expert will transform those imperfect surfaces into smooth, glass-like finishes which will be suitable for wallpapering or painting. Before you decorate over it, you need to leave it to dry out for a few days. A perfectly fault-free and flat surface will be the final result.(Tags: Plaster Skimming Sandy, Skimming Sandy, Re-Skimming Sandy)
