Plasterers Sunninghill

Any decent Sunninghill plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some pictures) of successfully accomplished jobs, ask to see it so you can make sure they know their stuff. Getting stuck with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering is the thing that you want to avoid at all costs. You'll soon come to realise the many complications that can arise as a result of substandard plastering.

It's when the painting and decorating begins that any defects become glaringly obvious. This effect will be even more highlighted when the uneven surfaces are viewed in bright sunlight. So, make sure you only consider competent plasterers in Sunninghill.

Smooth and level are the main attributes of a plastered surface, since other materials will always be applied to it. An imperfectly plastered surface will lead to severe problems with fitting skirting boards, the decorating of walls and ceilings, the tiling of wall surfaces and the installation of kitchen units.

With plastering it is preferable to get a polished finish, straight from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from the most skillful Sunninghill plasterers. Sanding isn't something you should ever have to do with a newly plastered wall or ceiling, merely a quick rub down with fine paper. You would be right in thinking that the plastering has not been done to an acceptable standard if extensive sanding is necessary. If the use of electric sanding machines is becoming commonplace, there is definately something amiss with your plasterer.

Plastering and Coving Sunninghill

Though you might call on the services of a plasterer for many tasks, one common reason nowadays is for plastering over old artexed ceilings. Artex was at its height of popularity in Sunninghill during the 1970's and 80's, but today it is not so much so. Plastering over that old artex ceiling to make it look more sleek and modern is something that most plasterers in Sunninghill will be happy to do. If you're more retro in your taste, you may wish to give your currently smooth ceilings a little character by actually putting on artex.

Rendering Sunninghill: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mixture of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to exterior (and now and again internal) 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 waterproof and has some fire retarding qualities, although it's largely employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is quite possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, a better solution is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable finish.

Pebble Dashing Sunninghill: Though it isn't to everybodys taste pebbledashing has been used for many years to decorate and protect the external walls of homes in Sunninghill, Berkshire. There are people who specialise in pebbledashing out there, but now and again Sunninghill plasterers will be willing to do this type of job for you. Pebbledashing (or pebble dashing) is a form of external wall covering that usually consists of 2 layers of a base made of sand and lime onto which small gravel or pebbles are pressed to create a decorative, tough and maintenance free finish on both new and refurbished houses.

Dry Lining Sunninghill (Plasterboarding): Some plasterers in Sunninghill also offer dry lining services, which are needed in plenty of home improvement projects. Dry lining is the procedure by which plasterboard is fixed to a brick surface, metal framing or a wood studding to produce a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst you can decorate or paint the plasterboard finish itself, normally most folks elect to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat afterwards to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to timber studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing to a metal frame self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.
