You should expect nothing less than the perfect finish directly from the trowel. Sanding isn't something that you should ever have to do with a freshly plastered wall or ceiling, only a quick rub down with fine paper. You can safely assume that the plastering has not been done properly if vigorous sanding is called for. There is definately something amiss with your plasterer, if you hear the buzz of power sanders.

Rendering Shoreham-by-Sea: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mixture of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to external (and now and again internal) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is quite popular throughout Europe and is particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire retarding properties and is water resistant, although it's generally used for aesthetic purposes. While it is quite possible to paint a rendered surface, an even better solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable result.

Dry Lining Shoreham-by-Sea (Plasterboarding): Quite a few plasterers in Shoreham-by-Sea also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the procedure by which plasterboard is fixed to a timber studding or joist, a brickwork or masonry surface or metal framing to form a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. While it's possible to paint or decorate the plasterboard surface itself, usually most folks choose to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin coat of plaster afterwards to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wood joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing to a masonry or brick wall the "dot and dab" method is used.

Plaster Shoreham-by-Sea: Plaster is a common building material used for protecting or decorating ceilings and walls in Shoreham-by-Sea, and for creating decorative elements. In the UK the term "plaster" normally pertains to a material that is applied to the interiors of homes, while the material used on outside surfaces is referred to as "render". The most commonplace types of plaster normally contain either cement, gypsum, or lime, but all basically work in the same way. Plaster is is produced in powdered form and when needed, is mixed with water to create a stiff, easy to work paste immediately before application. The resulting reaction between the plaster and water generates heat through crystallization and the mixture then sets and hardens.
