Quotations for Plastering in Swadlincote Derbyshire

Even small home improvement jobs may call for some plastering work to be done.

In actual fact, it may be any of dozens of plastering related jobs.

Plasterers Swadlincote

Before any work starts you need to check out potential Swadlincote plasterers to see if they know their stuff. Ask to see some photos or a portfolio of completed work. You don't want to get landed with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering. Though it may not always be immediately apparent, poor quality plastering can result in big problems down the line.

As soon as a coat or two of paint goes on a freshly plastered wall or ceiling, you will soon become aware of any defects. Such imperfections will be even more highlighted when viewed in bright sunlight. When you have the choice between competent plasterers in Swadlincote and bad ones, always use an experienced one.

Smooth and level are the key attributes of a plastered surface, because other materials will always be applied to it. A poorly plastered area may lead to serious difficulties with the painting and wallpapering of walls and ceilings, any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms), fitting skirting boards and the fitting of kitchen units.

The main thing that you can expect from the most sought after Swadlincote plasterers is the perfect finish, directly from the trowel. It should not ever be necessary to use electric sanders on newly plastered walls and ceilings, just a quick rub down with a fine paper before decorating. You can safely assume that the plastering hasn't been done properly if forceful sanding is called for. The alarm bells should certainly be ringing out if power sanders are being used with any regularity.

Plastering and Coving Swadlincote

One common reason for calling in a plasterer these days, is to plaster over an old artexed ceiling. There are still thousands of ceilings in Swadlincote that are decorated with this once popular finish. Most plasterers in Swadlincote will be more than happy to plaster over that dated artex ceiling, to make it look more sleek and modern. Plastering over artex is preferable to removing it because it is quite tricky to get off or repair, which is probably why its popularity waned in the first place.

Rendering Swadlincote: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mixture of lime, cement, sand and water is applied to exterior (and now and again internal) walls to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish has some fire resisting qualities and is waterproof, though it's largely used for cosmetic 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 finish.

Screeding Swadlincote: Some plasterers in Derbyshire will also offer screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is normally applied over a concrete sub-floor to encase underfloor heating pipes, to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface or to take on the final floor finish. An effectively laid screed can extend the life of the whole floor and assure its finish, quality and durability. Hand mixing screed is only suitable for small areas, and preferably a proper screed pump should be used to rapidly ensure an even, smooth blend of cement, sand and water and to transport (pump) this perfect mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such.

Pebble Dashing Swadlincote: Some folks love it and some folks hate it but pebbledashing has been used for many years to protect and decorate the external walls of dwellings in Derbyshire. There are tradesmen specialise in pebbledashing around, but from time to time Swadlincote plasterers will be willing to do this sort of job for you.

Plaster Swadlincote: Plaster is a common building material used for decorating or protecting walls and ceilings in Swadlincote, and for making decorative elements. In the United Kingdom the term "plaster" usually pertains to a material that's applied to the interiors of homes, whilst the material used on exterior areas is called "render". The most frequently used kinds of plaster typically contain either cement, gypsum, or lime, and all these components pretty much work in the same way. Plaster is a powder when manufactured and when required, is blended with water to create a stiff but easy to work paste just prior to application. The resulting reaction between the water and the plaster powder generates heat through crystallization and the mixture consequently hardens.
