What you really need is a perfect, polished finish right from the trowel, and the best Walton-on-Thames plasterers can be trusted to produce results like this. A plastered wall or ceiling should never have to be sanded down to get a good finish, it should only require a quick rub with fine glasspaper before it is decorated. If too much sanding is taking place, the plastering wasn't done properly in the first place. You should check out the quality of the plastering thoroughly, if you see electric sanders being used.

Walton-on-Thames Plastering and Coving

In recent times, one of the most common tasks a plasterer is requested to do, is cover up an artex ceiling. Currently out of favour in Walton-on-Thames, artex was the most popular decorative finish for ceilings during the 1970's and 1980's. Covering that artexed ceiling with plaster is something that most Walton-on-Thames plasterers will be more than happy to do in order to make it look more sleek and contemporary. If however, you would like to bring a bit of that old style back into your home, most plasterers will be just as glad to apply artex as they are to hide it.

Pebble Dashing Walton-on-Thames: Some folks love it and some folks hate it but pebble dashing has been around for many years and used to protect and decorate the outsides of homes in Walton-on-Thames. There are pebbledashing specialists around, but now and again Walton-on-Thames plasterers will do this kind of job for you. Pebbledashing (or pebble dashing) is a kind of external wall coating generally consisting of two layers of a base made from sand and lime onto which small gravel, pebbles or shells are pressed to create a robust, decorative and maintenance free finish on both new and renovated homes.

Plasterboarding Walton-on-Thames (Dry Lining): A few plasterers in Walton-on-Thames also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which are required in a lot of home improvements. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is affixed to Gypframe metal framing, a timber studding or joist or a brick surface to create a wall surface that does not need plastering. While you can decorate or paint the plasterboard surface as it is, in general most prefer to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine coat of plaster afterwards to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used, when fixing plasterboard to timber joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal frame self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.

Artexing Walton-on-Thames: Although more popular through the 1970's and 1980's artex is still an effective way to enhance the appearance of a ceiling, especially a shabby or cracked one. It's not quite as straightforward to locate a plasterer that will take on artexing presently, whereby at one time you would find loads of tradespeople who did little else but apply artex and do artex removal. What boosted its popularity was probably the wide variety of designs and styles that it was fashioned in, and it seemed to be the case that everybody had their favourite, maybe it was scroll, stipple, hook & line, swirl, basket weave, broken leather, medusa, bark, circles, criss-cross or pairs. No matter what your taste, there was a design of artex to suit. Of course you can still get all of these artex designs these days, simply look for a local Walton-on-Thames plasterer who routinely executes this type of work, and not one who will merely "give it a try", in this manner you should be certain that you'll get a proper job done of it. The one downside to artex, and one that triggered its demise, is it is quite tricky to repair or patch.
