Quotations for Plastering in Tiptree Essex

There are lots of home improvement tasks, even modest ones, that end up with some plastering work needing to be done.

Then again, any one of a multitude of plastering related tasks could be necessary.

Plasterers in Tiptree

Hiring a plasterer who knows precisely what they are up to is the most critical issue, so ask prospective Tiptree plasterers to show you a portfolio of their previous projects. For this type of work, you want to avoid hiring "cowboys", without exceptions. You could have to deal with big complications later on when the quality of the plastering is substandard, and these aren't always immediately apparent.

The defects will immediately manifest on the newly plastered wall once a coat or two of emulsion paint has been applied to it. And even more so, with the sun shining on the newly plastered areas. So, make sure you only consider competent plasterers in Tiptree.

The key characteristic of plastered surfaces is that they're flat and smooth, establishing a level base for additional materials to be applied to them. Negligible blemishes and cracking can be easily repaired and sanded down afterwards with very few issues, but irregular plastering is tricky to conceal. Surfaces that are poorly plastered can lead to issues with the accurate fitting of architraves, the installation of kitchen units, the painting and wallpapering of walls and ceilings and any area of tiling (bathrooms or kitchens).

Tiptree Plasterer

Skilled Tiptree plasterers have reputations to maintain and will invariably seek to get a polished finish straight from the trowel, wherever feasible. Any skilled plasterer will tell you that a correctly plastered wall or ceiling should never need sanding down to attain a nice finish. If the finished plastering needs vigorous sanding, you can be fairly certain that it hasn't been done properly. If the use of electric sanders is becomes a regular thing, there's certainly something is amiss with your plasterer.

Plastering and Coving Tiptree

A common reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times, is to plaster over an artexed ceiling.

To make your old artexed ceiling look more fresh and modern, most plasterers in Tiptree will be more than happy to plaster over it. If you're a bit retro in your taste, you may wish to give your currently smooth ceilings a little character by actually putting on artex.

Renderers Tiptree

Rendering in Tiptree UK

Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of cement, sand, lime and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes interior) walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface. A popular technique throughout Southern Europe, rendering is particularly widespread in the Mediterranean countries, especially Spain, Italy and Greece. A rendered finish is mostly employed for aesthetic reasons but is additionally waterproof and has got some fire resistant properties. While of course it is possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, a better option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting end result.

Screeding

Screeding in Tiptree UK

Screeding calls for the spreading of a sand and cement mix, to create a flat, smooth floor surface. Typically screeding is applied over a concrete sub-floor to take on the final floor finish, to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface or to encase underfloor heating pipes. Greater finish, quality and durability is the effect of a properly laid screed floor. Screed is only mixed by hand where relatively small areas are being worked on. For bigger projects, a decent screed pump needs to be used to ensure an even and smooth mix of sand, cement and water, which is then pumped straight to the desired location. There are several different sorts of floor screed available in Tiptree, therefore you should enquire about which is appropriate for your project, you will need to pick from floor levelling compound, structural screed, bonded screed, free-flowing screed, traditional screed, fast drying screed and unbonded screed.

Plasterboarding (Dry Lining) Tiptree

Dry Lining (Plasterboarding)

Dry lining (plasterboarding) is sometimes required in home renovation projects, and there are some plasterers in Tiptree who can offer you this particular service. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is mounted on metal Gypframe, a brick surface or a wood studding or joist to produce a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst it is feasible to paint or decorate the plasterboard finish as it is, in general most elect to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat afterwards to give it that extra special, smooth finish. With regards to fittings, when attaching plasterboard to wooden joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used, when fixing to a metal frame self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing to a masonry or brick wall the "dot and dab" method is used.

Artex

Artexing Tiptree Essex

Even though most popular through the Seventies and Eighties artex continues to be a good way to enhance the appearance of ceilings, in particular shabby or cracked ones. It is not quite as simple to obtain a plasterer who'll do artexing presently, whereas years ago you would find a lot of tradesmen who did nothing but artex and artex removal. Doubtless the wide array of designs and styles was what made artex so popular, and everyone seemed to have their favourite, be it criss-cross, circles, broken leather, pairs, basket & roses, bark, swirl, stippled, medusa, scroll or hook & line. Patterns of artex were available to suit any taste or preference. It is of course still quite possible to get any of these artex ceiling designs done today, you'll just have to locate a tradesman (a plasterer and not a handyman) ready to do it. The only drawback of artex, and what probably triggered its decline, is that it is very difficult to repair or patch.

Decorative Plastering

Decorative Plastering Tiptree

As a technique for decorating and protecting wall surfaces, plastering has existed ever since the times of the ancient Romans, Greeks and Egyptians. The materials used would obviously have differed in those long forgotten days, when combinations of mud and clay were used. A form of plaster was placed on the walls of houses and shops in 13th century London to limit the spread of fires. Buildings of the Georgian and Victorian eras were extensively emblazoned with features and mouldings made from plaster. Beautiful decorative effects by means of age-old techniques coupled with modern materials can be produced by skilled plasterers today. This could include the installation of cornice finishes, ceiling roses, dentils, corbels, brackets, niches and coving.

Skimming and Re-Skimming

Plaster Re-Skimming Tiptree Essex UK

A thin finish of plaster spread over the top of plasterboard, unwanted artex or damaged plasterwork is known as skimming or re-skimming. Out of all the jobs that plasterers are asked to tackle, this is one of the most commonplace. Many home refurbishment projects call for new plasterboard walls or cause damage to existing plasterwork surfaces. A 2 coat skim carried out by a professional will transform such flawed surfaces into smooth, glass-like finishes that are suitable for wallpapering or painting. Before you decorate on top of it, you need to leave it to dry thoroughly for a few days. A beautifully fault-free and flat surface should be the final result.(Tags: Skimming Tiptree, Re-Skimming Tiptree, Plaster Skimming Tiptree)
