Screeding in Truro

Screeding Truro: Many plasterers in Truro, Cornwall will also offer a floor screeding service, whereby a new level floor surface is created using a sand and cement mix. Screeding is generally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface, to encase underfloor heating pipes or to take on the final floor finish. An effectively laid screed can significantly increase the life of a floor and establish its quality, finish and durability. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used for small areas, otherwise a proper screed pump should be employed to speedily ensure an even, smooth mixture of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this perfect mix directly to its required location, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such.

Dry Lining Truro: Some plasterers in Truro also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be needed in a lot of home improvements. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is mounted on a masonry or brickwork surface, metal Gypframe or a wood studding to create a wall surface that does not need plastering. Whilst it is feasible to decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, in general most people opt to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat afterwards to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used, when fixing plasterboard to wooden stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used.
