Any top notch Sevenoaks plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some photographs) of successfully accomplished jobs, ask to see it so you can make sure they know their stuff. This is not the sort of work you want to be trusting to "cowboys". Untrained plasterers result in inferior plastering and as work progresses this can cause significant complications.

When a coat of paint is applied to your newly plastered walls and ceilings, the imperfections will become blindingly obvious. They'll probably look even worse with the sun shining on them. When you have the choice between experienced plasterers in Sevenoaks and poor ones, always use a competent one.

Being smooth and level is the most crucial thing for plastered surfaces, since they are just a base onto which other materials are applied. A poorly plastered area can cause serious difficulties with the fitting of skirtings, the fitting of kitchen units, bathroom or kitchen tiling and the wallpapering and painting of ceilings and walls.

You should expect nothing less than a polished finish straight from the trowel. Walls and ceilings that have been plastered by a professional, should never need sanding down. You would be correct in thinking that the plastering has not been done to a satisfactory standard if too much sanding is necessary. If you see the electric sanding machines coming out you should be very suspicious.

Sevenoaks Plastering and Coving

One of the most commonplace tasks for plasterers in recent times, is plastering over artex ceilings. During the 1970's and 1980's, artex was the "in" finish for ceilings in Sevenoaks, today that is not so much the case. Plastering over that old artex ceiling to make it look more sleek and contemporary is something that most plasterers in Sevenoaks will jump at the chance to do. 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 plaster over it.

Screeding Sevenoaks: A few plasterers in Kent also provide screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is typically applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to receive a floor finish (such as floor boards, carpet or tiles), to cover underfloor heating pipes or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. An effectively laid screed can lengthen the life of the complete floor and positively affect its finish, quality and durability. The mixing of screed by hand is only suitable for smaller areas, otherwise a proper screed pump should be used to quickly produce a smooth, even mixture of cement and sand and to pump this fine mix straight to its required location, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and similar paraphernalia. There are different sorts of floor screeding available in Sevenoaks, so you should enquire to find which is suitable for your particular project, you'll be choosing from unbonded screed, free-flowing screed, fast drying screed, floor levelling compound, bonded screed, structural screed and traditional screed.

Artexing Sevenoaks: Though more popular through the 1970's and 1980's artex is still a good way to enhance the appearance of a ceiling, especially a shabby or cracked one. It isn't quite as straightforward to track down a plasterer who will tackle artexing at the moment, whereby years ago there were quite a lot of tradesmen who did little else but artexing and artex patching. What helped its attractiveness was the large selection of styles and designs that it was applied in, and it appeared that everybody had their preferred design, perhaps it might have been scroll, hook & line, bark, basket weave, medusa, stipple, pairs, criss-cross, broken leather, circle or swirl. No matter what your taste, you'd find a design of artex to match. Of course you can still have ceilings done in all of these artex styles today, just get a local Sevenoaks plasterer who continually executes this type of work, and not one which will just "have a go", in this manner you can be sure that you will get a proper job done of it. The only downside to artex, and what probably led to its demise, is that it's really difficult to patch or repair.
