Plasterers Stafford

Stafford Plasterers: Whether you have a small plastering task or a sizeable plastering project to be carried out on your property in Stafford, you'll need a competent and professional plasterer to manage the work in a correct and proper manner. It is not advisable to attempt plastering yourself, since it is a craft that often takes many years to master.

Some plastering work is often needed, even on small home improvement jobs. It could be installing mouldings or coving before decorating, plaster skimming some dry lining, applying some screeding or plastering over artex. Actually, it could be any one of a multitude of plastering related jobs.

Plasterers Stafford Staffordshire

Any top notch Stafford plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some photos) of successfully completed jobs, ask to see it so you can make sure they know their stuff. For this type of work, you should avoid hiring "cowboys", at all costs. Inferior plastering can result in big complications as work progresses, and it may not even be apparent until the decorating starts.

Any imperfections will become blindingly obvious as soon as some paint starts going on to your freshly plastered walls and ceilings. Uneven surfaces become even more accentuated in bright sunlight. There are plenty of good plasterers in Stafford, so be sure to pick a decent one.

Because plaster is always covered up with other materials it is easy to forget how important it is that it is flat and smooth. A shoddily plastered area may lead to serious complications with the painting and decorating of the surfaces, the fitting of kitchen units, the accurate fitting of architraves and any area of tiling (bathrooms or kitchens).

You can always tell skillful Stafford plasterers because they almost always get a perfect finish, straight from the trowel. Vigorous sanding is not something that you should ever have to do with a freshly plastered wall or ceiling, merely a quick rub down with fine glasspaper. You might reasonably expect some areas that need a bit of work with sandpaper, but not to any great degree. There is definately something amiss with your plasterer, if you hear the buzz of power sanders.

Plastering and Coving Stafford

Whilst you might call on the services of a plasterer for many tasks, one common reason nowadays is for plastering over artexed ceilings. A large number of homes in Stafford had ceilings that were coated with artex during the nineteen seventies and eighties, when it was the height of fashion. Plastering over that dated artex ceiling to make it look more fresh and modern is something that most plasterers in Stafford will gladly do. Those of you who are more retro in taste may wish to have your artex ceilings restored and brought back to their former glory.

Rendering Stafford: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to external (and now and again internal) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is popular across Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resistant properties, although it is predominately used for aesthetic purposes. While it is quite possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a better alternative is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result.

Plaster Stafford: Plaster is a common building material that's used for protecting or decorating ceilings and walls in Stafford, and for creating decorative features. In the United Kingdom the term "plaster" ordinarily pertains to a material that is used on the insides of structures, while the material used on outside surfaces is termed "render". The most common forms of plaster typically contain either lime, cement, or gypsum, and all work in much the same way. Plaster is a powder when manufactured and when required, is blended with water to create a stiff, easy to work paste just prior to application. The reaction between the water and the plaster powder generates heat through crystallization and the mixture subsequently becomes hard. (Tags: Render Stafford, Plaster Stafford, Plastering Stafford)

Artexing Stafford StaffordshireArtexing Stafford: Even though more common throughout the Seventies and Eighties artex is still an excellent way to improve the appearance of a ceiling, especially a cracked or shabby one. It's not quite as straightforward to obtain a plasterer who'll do artexing these days, where previously you could find many tradesmen who did very little else but artex and artex patching. What helped its popularity was probably the wide selection of designs that it was applied in, and it seemed that everybody had their preferred design, perhaps it might have been stippled, broken leather, medusa, bark, criss-cross, swirl, hook & line, basket, pairs, scroll or circle. Whatever your taste, there appeared to be an artex style to fit. You can obviously still have any of these artex designs these days, just locate a local Stafford plasterer who routinely carries out this type of work, rather that one which will basically "have a go", in this way you should make sure that you're going to get a decent job made of it. The one snag with artex, and one that brought about its drop in popularity, is it is really difficult to patch or repair.
