Screeding Telford: A number of plasterers in Shropshire also offer screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is usually applied over a concrete sub-floor to cover underfloor heating pipes, to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as carpet, floor boards or tiles) or to be left as a wearing floor surface. A correctly laid screed can significantly increase the lifespan of the whole floor and establish its quality, durability and finish. Hand mixing screed should only be used where small areas are involved, in all other cases a proper screed pump should be used to speedily produce a smooth, even blend of sand, cement and water and to pump this perfect mix directly to where its needed, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like.

Dry Lining Telford (Plasterboarding): Many plasterers in Telford also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be needed in a lot of home improvements. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is affixed to a brickwork surface, a wood studding or joist or metal Gypframe to form a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. While you can decorate the plasterboard surface itself, usually most folks opt to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine coat of plaster to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used, when fixing plasterboard to timber studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal framework Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.
