The aim of professional St Albans plasterers is to get a perfect, polished finish directly from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less. You can recognize when plastering has been done by an expert, because a quick rub down is all that is required and no heavy sanding is necessary. If the plastering has not been done competently, forceful sanding may be required, and calls the plasterers ability into question. If electric sanding machines are being used you should check out the quality of the plastering meticulously.

Rendering St Albans: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mixture of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to external (and occasionally interior) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resistant properties, though it is mainly used for aesthetic purposes. While it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a better solution is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.

Screeding St Albans: Some plasterers in St Albans also offer floor screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is normally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be covered with a floor finish (such as tiles, floor boards or carpet), to cover underfloor heating pipes or to be left as a wearing floor surface. An effectively laid screed can considerably lengthen the life of the whole floor and positively affect its durability, quality and finish. Hand mixing screed is only suitable for smaller areas, and preferably a proper screed pump should be used to rapidly produce an even, smooth blend of sand, cement and water and to transport (pump) this perfect mix straight to its exact location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such.
