Rendering

Wall Rendering Walton-on-the-Naze UK

Rendering is the method where a mixture of sand, cement, lime and water is applied to walls (both exterior and interior), to achieve a smooth or textured surface, using a technique which is not dissimilar to plastering. Rendering is very popular across Europe and is particularly widespread in the Mediterranean region. Largely used for aesthetic reasons a rendered surface has got some fire resistant qualities and is also waterproof. There are a couple of ways that colour can be put on to a rendered wall, either it can be painted as soon as it's dry, or the colour can be added to the render mix itself, providing a finish that is much longer lasting and more resilient.

Dry Lining (Plasterboarding)

Dry Lining (Plasterboarding) Walton-on-the-Naze

There are loads of home remodeling assignments that will require dry lining (plasterboarding) to be undertaken, and a handful of Walton-on-the-Naze plasterers will be happy to do this for you. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is fixed to a timber studding or joist, a brick surface or metal Gypframe to form a wall surface that doesn't need plastering. While you could decorate or paint the plasterboard surface as it is, generally most choose to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coating to give it a harder and smoother finish. In terms of fittings, when attaching to a brickwork or masonry wall "dot and dab" bonding is used, when fixing plasterboard to wood joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal Gypframe Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.

Polished Plaster Walton-on-the-Naze

Polished Plaster Walton-on-the-Naze Essex UK

Polished plaster is a common term for the finish of several plasters and for the classification of updated forms of traditional Italian plaster finishes. Covering anything from rugged looking textured plasters to really highly polished Lucidato, Marmorino and Venetian plasters, the phrase "Polished Plaster" in fact covers a wide selection of high quality plaster finishes. Employed generally on internal walls and ceilings, polished plaster is supposed to deliver a surface finish that appears to be polished limestone, marble or travertine. Polished plaster has natural shade variations delivering a sense of depth whilst still smooth when touched. Original tailor-made finishes can be created by combining these different sorts of plasters. Polished plaster can be tinted or coloured by using artificial or natural colourants. The opportunity to tint Venetian plaster is especially valuable when a specific "marble" design is required, or when a colour that doesn't exist naturally is the goal. For more info about polished plaster, you could pay a visit to the Wikipedia polished plaster page.
