Plasterers Skegness

Skegness Plasterers: Any time you're carrying out renovations or home improvements on your property in Skegness you'll invariably need to either get some existing plaster walls patched up or fresh plaster administered. The fact is that plastering is a skilled vocation and even though you are perhaps pretty useful at odd jobs, it's not a task that you should try to do on your own, except if you are really confident in your abilities. This especially applies if there are ceilings to be plastered, as you'll probably get yourself and your property in quite a state should you try this. You'd definately be better off calling in a specialist plasterer to tackle this sort of work, and while you should not have any hassle finding a plasterer in Skegness, discovering one that has the free time to fit you in might be more tricky. Plasterers, much like a lot of craftsmen, are likely to be in demand, therefore if at all possible aim to book someone in several weeks or even months in advance.

When embarking on a variety of home remodeling assignments, you've got to bear in mind the possibility of plastering work being necessary. It will potentially be something like re-plastering a ceiling, latex screeding, fitting mouldings or coving before decorating or skimming a dry lined partition. In fact, it may possibly be any of a number of plastering related tasks.

Skegness Plasterers

There are various means by which to verify that prospective Skegness plasterers really know their stuff, one excellent approach is to ask for a portfolio of past jobs. You do not want to get landed with a bunch of "cowboys" bodging your plastering. Even inferior plastering can sometimes look reasonable at first, but down the line, the problems start.

Any defects will become startlingly obvious the moment a bit of emulsion starts to be applied to your freshly plastered ceilings and walls. And even more so, with the sun shining on the newly plastered areas. By choosing only from competent plasterers in Skegness, you'll avoid such problems.

You should bear in mind that the plastering is a base on which other materials are applied, so it must be flat and smooth. It's quite simple to fill and sand down any minor imperfections and cracking, but it is tricky to disguise inherently uneven surfaces. Surfaces that are badly plastered can cause problems with the painting and decorating of ceilings and walls, any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms), the fitting of architraves and the installation of kitchen units.

Professional Skegness plasterers will get a polished finish directly from the trowel. You can tell when plastering has been done by a professional, as a brief rub down is all that is required and no heavy sanding is necessary. If a lot of sanding is occurring, the plastering was not done properly from the start. If the use of orbital sanders is becomes a regular thing, there's definately something is amiss with your plasterer.

Skegness Plastering and Coving

Nowadays, one of the most common jobs a plasterer is requested to do, is cover up an old artex ceiling. A widely used form of ceiling finish in Skegness during the 1970's and 80's, artex is to some degree out of favour at present. Plastering over that artex ceiling to make it look more sleek and modern is something that most plasterers in Skegness will jump at the chance to do. If you're more retro in your taste, you may want to give your currently smooth ceilings some character by actually putting on artex.

Rendering Skegness

The procedure of applying a mix of lime, cement, sand and water to both exterior and interior walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface, is called rendering, and it is a very similar trade to plastering. Rendering is especially widespread in the Mediterranean countries, but is also a popular method all around Europe. Mostly employed for aesthetic reasons a rendered surface has some fire resisting properties and is waterproof. There are a couple of ways that a rendered surface can be coloured, either you can apply paint once it is properly dry, or the colour can be added to the render mix itself, producing a finished surface that is much longer lasting and more resilient.

What is Plaster?

Plaster is a building material that is used for decorating or protecting ceilings and walls in Skegness, and for the production of decorative features. What most of us call "plaster" in the United Kingdom is normally understood to be the material that's used for coating the inner rooms of buildings and homes, whilst that which is used on outside walls is known as "render" or "rendering". The plaster blend itself can contain various compounds but most commonly comprise of either lime, gypsum, or cement. All of these mixes work in pretty much the same way, but have got different uses. Blended with water to make a stiff, easily workable paste, plaster is just a fine, dry powder when manufactured. The combining of the plaster powder and water causes a reaction, and heat is generated by way of crystallization, making the paste set and harden.

Artexing Skegness

Artexing Skegness Lincolnshire

While more common during the Seventies and Eighties artex remains a good way to enhance the look of ceilings, in particular shabby or cracked ones. In the past, there were so many tradespeople doing artexing that it was easy to find somebody providing this kind of service in Skegness. Nowadays however, tracking down a plasterer who is prepared to tackle artexing isn't quite so straightforward. With designs and styles like hook & line, circle, medusa, pairs, stippled, swirl, criss-cross, scroll, broken leather, basket or bark, there was something for everyone. Artex patterns were available to suit any personal preference or taste. Every one of these artex patterns can still be carried out today if you are able to track down a local plumber or artexer prepared to do it. Avoid handyman type people who will just "have a bash". The main snag with artex, and what probably led to its drop in popularity, is it is really difficult to patch or repair.
