Plasterers Scarborough

Scarborough Plasterers: Whether you have a small plastering task or a large plastering project to be done on your property in Scarborough, you'll need a competent and professional plasterer to handle the work in a correct and proper manner. Plastering is not generally a job that you should attempt yourself, it's a technique that often takes many years of practise.

A certain amount of plastering work can be generated by even the smallest home improvement projects. It could be skimming a dry lined partition, rendering a section of wall, plaster repair before tiling or installing coving or mouldings before decorating. The fact is, it may possibly be any one of a host of plastering related chores.

Any decent Scarborough plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some photos) of successfully completed jobs, ask to see it so that you can make sure they know their stuff. This is not the kind of work you want to be giving to "cowboys". Though it may not always be immediately apparent, shoddy plastering can cause big problems as work progresses.

You'll soon become aware of any imperfections as soon as a coat of paint has gone onto the freshly plastered wall. In bright sunlight your defective plastered surfaces will look even worse. By using experienced plasterers in Scarborough, you should hopefully avoid issues like this.

The key attribute of plastered surfaces is that they be smooth and flat, forming a level base for other materials to be applied to them. An unevenly plastered surface will lead to major issues with the painting of the surfaces, the fitting of kitchen units, fitting skirting boards and any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms).

Experienced Scarborough plasterers will get a perfect, polished finish directly from the trowel. A quick rub down before decorating is all that a plastered ceiling or wall should need, it should never need to be sanded. If any amount of vigorous sanding is needed to level out the plastered areas, they were not competently done in the first place. There is definately something amiss with your plasterer, if you hear the buzz of electric sanding machines.

Plastering and Coving Scarborough

These days, a typical reason to call in a plasterer is to cover an artexed ceiling. Hundreds of houses in Scarborough had ceilings that were coated with artex during the 1970's and 80's, when it was the height of fashion. To make your old artex ceiling look more sleek and modern, most plasterers in Scarborough will be happy to plaster over it. If you're more retro in your taste, you might wish to give your currently smooth ceilings a little character by actually putting on artex.

Pebble Dashing Scarborough: Some folks love it and some folks hate it but pebbledashing has been used for many years to protect and decorate the outside of dwellings in Scarborough. There are pebble dashing specialists around, but usually Scarborough plasterers will do this kind of work for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a type of external wall coating normally consisting of 2 layers of a base coat made of sand and lime into which small gravel or pebbles are firmly pressed to create a tough, attractive and maintenance free finish on both new and refurbished buildings.

Plasterboarding Scarborough (Dry Lining): Certain plasterers in Scarborough also provide dry lining services, which will be needed in a lot of home improvements. Dry lining is the process by which plasterboard is fixed to a metal framework, a wooden studding or a brick surface to produce a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. Whilst you may decorate the plasterboard surface after a bit of filling, usually most folks choose to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine coat of plaster afterwards to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used, when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall "dot and dab" bonding compound is used.
