Plasterers Warwick

Warwick Plasterers: Whether you are looking to have a small section of plaster repaired, a whole room plastered or need the plastering of your entire property in Warwick, you will need a competent and professional plasterer to handle the project for you. Perfecting the art of plastering can take several years of practise, so it isn't a job you can do yourself unless you are extremely confident in what you're doing.

Even small home improvement jobs may call for some plastering work to be done. It could be plastering over an old artexed ceiling, installing mouldings or coving before decorating, plaster skimming some dry lining or applying some screeding. In fact, it may possibly be any one of a number of plastering related chores.

Now there are lots of Warwick plasterers to choose from, and you need to find one who knows their stuff. If they've got a website you could study images that they've posted, otherwise you could ask to see a portfolio. At all costs, you want to avoid hiring "cowboys" for work of this kind. It is very hard to correct substandard plastering after the event, so it needs to be done properly from the outset.

Any imperfections in your freshly plastered ceilings and walls will soon show up when a coat of paint is applied. Uneven surfaces become even more emphasized in bright daylight. To avoid issues like this, choose only from decent plasterers in Warwick.

It is always important to remember that plaster must be smooth and flat, because it is just a base on which other materials are applied. An irregular plastered surface will cause severe complications with the installation of kitchen units, the fitting of skirting boards, kitchen or bathroom tiling and the painting of walls and ceilings.

Experienced Warwick plasterers have reputations to keep up and will always aim to get the perfect finish directly from the trowel, wherever possible. Sanding (particularly by machine) should never be necessary on newly plastered ceilings and walls, a quick rub down with fine glasspaper is all that should be needed. If your finished plastering needs vigorous sanding, you know that it hasn't been done correctly. Be very wary of re-hiring plasterers who make use of electric sanders.

Plastering and Coving Warwick

Nowadays, one of the most common jobs a plasterer is requested to do, is plaster over an old artex ceiling. Today somewhat out of favour in Warwick, artex was the most fashionable decorative finish for ceilings during the nineteen seventies and eighties. So as to get your ceilings looking sleek and contemporary once more, your Warwick plasterer will be happy to cover them up with a smooth new finish. Plastering over artex is preferred to removing it because it is quite difficult to get off or repair, which is likely why its popularity has waned.

Rendering Warwick: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of sand, cement, lime and water is applied to exterior (and now and again internal) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is very popular all over Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resisting properties, although it is generally employed for cosmetic purposes. While of course it is possible to paint a rendered wall, a more effective alternative is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting finish.

Screeding Warwick: Certain plasterers in Warwick will also offer screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is usually applied over a concrete sub-floor to be covered with an appropriate floor finish (such as tiles, carpet or floor boards), to be left as a wearing floor surface or to encase underfloor heating pipes. An effectively laid screed can considerably increase the lifespan of the whole floor and positively affect its finish, quality and durability. Hand mixing screed is only recommended for smaller areas, in all other cases a screed pump should be used to rapidly produce an even, smooth mixture of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this fine mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the use of wheelbarrows and other equipment. There are various different types of floor screed available in Warwick, therefore you need to ask around about which is suitable for your particular project, you will be choosing from free-flowing screed, fast drying screed, floor levelling compound, bonded screed, traditional screed, unbonded screed and structural screed.

Dry Lining Warwick: A number of plasterers in Warwick also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in a lot of home improvement projects. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is mounted on Gypframe metal framing, a brick surface or a wooden studding or joist to form a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst it's possible to decorate or paint the plasterboard finish itself, usually most like to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin layer of plaster to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brick or masonry wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used, when fixing plasterboard to wood studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.
