The aim of the best Stoke-on-Trent plasterers is to get a polished finish directly from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less.

You should be very suspicious if you see the orbital sanders coming out or their boxes.

Plastering and Coving Stoke-on-Trent

In recent times, one of the most common tasks a plasterer is requested to do, is plaster over an old artex ceiling.

On the flip side, if you'd like to bring back that 70's style, most plasterers will just as gladly slap some artex on your smooth, flat ceilings.

Screeding Stoke-on-Trent: Some plasterers in Staffordshire also provide a floor screeding service, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is usually applied over a concrete sub-floor to encase underfloor heating pipes, to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as floor boards, tiles or carpet) or to be left as a wearing floor surface. A correctly laid screed can significantly increase the lifespan of the complete floor and positively affect its quality, durability and finish. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used for small areas, and preferably a proper screed pump should be used to speedily ensure a smooth, even mix of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this perfect mix straight to its required location, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and other equipment. There are different kinds of floor screed available in Stoke-on-Trent, so you should enquire to find which is appropriate for your project, you'll be choosing from free-flowing screed, floor levelling compound, traditional screed, fast drying screed, structural screed, bonded screed and unbonded screed.

Dry Lining Stoke-on-Trent (Plasterboarding): A number of plasterers in Stoke-on-Trent also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be needed in a lot of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is fixed to a timber studding, a metal framework or a brick surface to form a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. While you may paint or decorate the plasterboard finish after a bit of filling, generally most opt to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat afterwards to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used, when fixing to a metal frame Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used and when fixing plasterboard to wooden stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used.
