Plasterers Spalding

Spalding Plasterers: Whether you are needing to have your entire home in Spalding plastered, just one room re-skimmed, or merely one small section of plaster repaired, you will be on the lookout for a seasoned and professional plasterer to carry out the work properly. Plastering can take years of practise to perfect, so you should not attempt to do it yourself.

Quite a few home remodeling assignments will need some plastering work to be done, even smaller jobs. Normally it will be rendering a patched up wall, fitting cornices or coving before decorating, plaster repair prior to tiling or plaster skimming dry lining. Don't imagine however that the above are the only plastering and screeding jobs which may be necessary, because there are a lot more possibilities.

Plasterers in Spalding

There are numerous ways to check if potential Spalding plasterers really know their stuff, one good approach is to ask for a portfolio of past assignments. You don't want to get stuck with a bunch of "cowboys" messing up your plastering work. You'll quickly come to appreciate the many complications that can present themselves due to shoddy plastering.

The defects will soon manifest on the newly plastered wall as soon as a coat or two of emulsion paint has been applied to it. Any defective plastered areas will look even worse in bright sunlight. When you have the choice between decent plasterers in Spalding and poor ones, always choose a competent one.

The most critical thing for plastered surfaces is that they are flat and smooth. Irregular surfaces are hard to cover up, however trivial cracks and blemishes can be easily filled and sanded later without any problems. Difficulties with the fitting of skirtings, any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms), the wallpapering and painting of walls and ceilings and the installation of kitchen units, can be caused by a badly plastered area.

Plasterer in Spalding

The best Spalding plasterers have reputations to keep up and will always aim to get a polished finish right from the trowel, wherever feasible. You can recognise when plastering has been done by an expert, as a brief rub down is all that is needed and no sanding is necessary. If extensive sanding is occurring, the plastering was not done properly in the first place. Be extremely suspicious of re-employing plasterers who make use of power sanders.

Spalding Plastering and Coving

Plasterers perform many tasks but among the most common these days, is plastering over artex ceilings. The "in" finish for ceilings during the nineteen seventies and eighties, artex is not so popular in Spalding currently. Covering that old artexed ceiling with plaster is something that most Spalding plasterers will gladly do in order to make it look more fresh and contemporary. If you're a bit retro in your taste, you may want to give your currently smooth ceilings a little character by actually putting on artex.

Pebble Dash

Pebble Dashing Spalding Lincolnshire

A product which is frequently used to enhance and protect the outside of dwellings, pebble dashing isn't to everyone's taste in Spalding. Plasterers will sometimes carry out this type of work for you, though there are pebbledashing specialists out there. Pebble dashing typically consists of two layers of a base made from lime and sand into which small pebbles or gravel are firmly pressed to give both refurbished and new buildings a tough, maintenance free and attractive surface finish.

Plasterboarding (Dry Lining) Spalding

Dry lining is often needed in home remodeling projects, and you will find plenty of plasterers in Spalding who offer you this particular service. By mounting plasterboard onto a brick or masonry surface, a wood studding or a metal framework, a stable wall surface is created that does not need plastering. Although in certain instances the plasterboard itself can be decorated (with a little extra preparation), a really fine, durable surface is generated by applying one last skim of finishing plaster. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when attaching plasterboard to timber stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used.


A material that's used for protecting and decorating ceiling and wall surfaces, plaster has been with us thousands of years. What most of us call "plaster" in Spalding is generally understood to be the stuff which is used for coating the inner rooms of structures and homes, whilst that which is used on outside walls is referred to as "render" or "rendering". The plaster blend itself may contain various ingredients but most frequently consist of either gypsum, lime, or cement. All of these mixes pretty much work in the same way, but are used for different things. Mixed together with water to create a stiff but easily workable paste, plaster is simply a dry powder at the time of manufacture. The mixing of the water and the plaster powder causes a chemical reaction, and heat is produced through crystallization, making the paste set.
