Plastering Shanklin

Shanklin Plasterers: Whether you have a small plastering task or a large plastering project to be carried out on your property in Shanklin, you'll need a skilled and professional plasterer to tackle the work in a proper and correct manner. It is not advisable to attempt plastering yourself, since it is a craft that can take many years to master.

In reality, it may be any of hundreds of plastering related tasks.

Now there are lots of Shanklin plasterers to choose from, and you need to find one who knows their stuff. If they've got a website you could study pictures that they have posted, otherwise you could ask to see a portfolio. You do not want to get landed with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering. Substandard plastering is worse than no plastering at all, as it is very hard to put right later on.

Any defects in your freshly plastered walls and ceilings will soon show up when a coat of paint is applied. Defective surfaces become even more highlighted in bright sunshine. So, make sure you only consider competent plasterers in Shanklin.

It is always good to keep in mind that plaster needs to be smooth and level, because it is just a base on which other materials are applied. A badly plastered surface may lead to major complications with any area of wall tiling, the installation of kitchen units, the accurate fitting or skirting boards and the painting and decorating of the surfaces.

Professional Shanklin plasterers will get a perfect, polished finish right from the trowel. Vigorous sanding isn't something you should ever have to do with a freshly plastered ceiling or wall, only a quick rub down with fine paper. If a lot of sanding is taking place, the plastering was not done competently in the first place. The alarm bells should definitely be ringing out if electric sanding machines are being used with any frequency.

Shanklin Plastering and Coving

These days, a common reason to call in a plasterer is to cover an old artex ceiling. The "in" finish for ceilings in the 1970's and 1980's, artex is not so widely used in Shanklin at present. To give your ceilings that fresh and modern look once more, most plasterers in Shanklin will jump at the chance to cover them with plaster. On the flip side, if you want to bring back that 70's style, most plasterers will just as gladly slap some artex on your currently smooth ceilings.

Rendering Shanklin: 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 occasionally interior) walls to achieve a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is a popular method across Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish has some fire resistant qualities and is waterproof, though it's largely employed for cosmetic purposes. While of course it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a much better solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.

Screeding Shanklin: Certain plasterers in Shanklin, Isle of Wight will also provide a floor screeding service, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is typically applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to cover underfloor heating pipes, to be left as a wearing floor surface or to be covered with an appropriate floor finish (such as carpet, floor boards or tiles). A correctly laid screed can significantly lengthen the lifespan of a floor and assure its quality, durability and finish. Hand mixing screed should only be used where smaller areas are involved, in all other cases a proper screed pump should be used to rapidly produce a smooth, even blend of sand and cement and to pump this perfect mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and similar equipment.
