Plastering Tynemouth

Tynemouth Plasterers: Whether you are thinking about having a small patch of plaster repaired, a whole room plastered or need the plastering of your entire home in Tynemouth, you will need a competent and professional plasterer to handle the project for you. Plasterers can take several years to perfect their craft, so plastering is not really something you can do for yourself.

Plastering work needs to be carried out on an array of home improvement projects, even modest ones. It may be plaster repair prior to tiling, plastering over an old artexed ceiling, skimming a partition or fitting cornices or coving before decorating. The truth is, it might be any one of a multitude of plastering related tasks.

Any top notch Tynemouth plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some photos) of successfully completed jobs, ask to see it so that you can make sure they know their stuff. You certainly don't want to be hiring a "cowboy" for this sort of work. You will soon come to realise the many complications that can arise as a result of inferior plastering.

It's when the painting and decorating begins that any imperfections become glaringly obvious. Your freshly plastered surfaces will probably look even worse with the sunlight shining on them. So, make sure you only consider competent plasterers in Tynemouth.

Plaster always need to be smooth and level, because it is just a base on which other materials are applied. A poorly plastered area can cause major problems with the fitting of kitchen units, kitchen or bathroom tiling, the fitting of skirtings and the painting and wallpapering of ceilings and walls.

What you really need is a perfect, polished finish straight from the trowel, and the most skillful Tynemouth plasterers can be expected to produce results like this. Sanding (particularly by machine) should never be necessary on newly plastered walls and ceilings, a quick rub down with fine paper is all that should be needed. If vigorous sanding is necessary, you can safely assume that your plastering hasn't been done correctly. If you see the electric sanding machines coming out you should be very wary.

Plastering and Coving Tynemouth

One of the most requested tasks for plasterers these days, is plastering over artex ceilings. The "in" finish for ceilings throughout the 1970's and 80's, artex is not so fashionable in Tynemouth at present. Plastering over that artex ceiling to make it look more sleek and modern is something that most plasterers in Tynemouth will jump at the chance to do. Plastering over artex is preferable to removing it as it is pretty hard to take off or repair, which is probably why its popularity waned in the first place.

Dry Lining Tynemouth (Plasterboarding): A few plasterers in Tynemouth also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which are needed in a lot of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is attached to a brick surface, a wood studding or a metal framework to form a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. Whilst it is possible to paint or decorate the plasterboard finish itself, in reality most people choose to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coating afterwards to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brick or masonry wall "dot and dab" bonding compound is used, when fixing to a metal frame self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used.
