Plastering Stroud

Stroud Plasterers: Plastering jobs come in all shapes and sizes and no matter how small or large, you will want to locate a skilled and professional plasterer to work on your property in Stroud. Plastering can take years of practise to master, so you shouldn't attempt to do it yourself.

Some plastering work is often necessary, even on small home improvement jobs.

Hiring a plasterer who knows exactly what they are doing is the most important thing, so ask prospective Stroud plasterers if they can show you a portfolio of their accomplished work. For this sort of work, you should avoid hiring "cowboys", no matter what. Even shoddy plastering can sometimes look passable at first, but as work progresses, the complications start.

You will soon notice any imperfections as soon as a coat of paint has gone on the newly plastered wall. Defective surfaces become even more highlighted in bright sunshine. By using decent plasterers in Stroud, you should hopefully avoid issues like this.

The key attribute of plastered surfaces is that they be smooth and flat, forming a level base for other materials to be applied to them. An irregular plastered area could cause major issues with the installation of kitchen units, any area of tiling (bathrooms or kitchens), the fitting of skirtings and the painting and wallpapering of walls and ceilings.

The main thing that you can expect from the best Stroud plasterers is the perfect finish, straight from the trowel. Sanding (particularly with machine tools) should never be necessary on freshly plastered walls and ceilings, a quick rub down with fine paper is all that should be needed. If your finished plastering needs vigorous sanding, you know that it has not been done properly. You should be very suspicious if you see the electric sanders coming out or their boxes.

Plastering and Coving Stroud

In recent times, one of the most common jobs a plasterer is asked to do, is cover up an old artex ceiling. At the height of fashion during the 1970's and 1980's, artex is out of favour in Stroud homes at present. Most plasterers in Stroud will be happy to plaster over that dated artex ceiling, to make it look more sleek and modern. If however, you want to bring a bit of that 1970's style back into your home, most plasterers will be just as glad to coat your ceiling with artex as they are to hide it.

Rendering Stroud: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes internal) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is very popular all over Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire retarding properties, although it is mostly used for cosmetic purposes. While it is quite possible to paint a rendered surface, a much better solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable result.
