Any imperfections will become blindingly obvious as soon as some paint starts going on to your newly plastered walls and ceilings. Your newly plastered surfaces will probably look even worse with the sunlight shining on them. So, make sure you only consider competent plasterers in Washington.

Since plaster is always covered up with other materials it is easy to forget how crucial it is that it is smooth and level. An imperfectly plastered area will cause major problems with the fitting of skirtings, the wallpapering and painting of walls and ceilings, the installation of kitchen units and the tiling of wall surfaces.

The aim of the most experienced Washington plasterers is to get a perfect, polished finish directly from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less. A plastered ceiling or wall should never need to be sanded down to get a good finish, it should only need a quick rub with fine glasspaper before it is decorated. If excessive sanding is taking place, the plastering wasn't done properly in the first place. You should be very wary if you see the electric sanding machines coming out or their boxes.

Plastering and Coving Washington

Plasterers perform many tasks but one of the most common nowadays, is plastering over old artex ceilings. There are still hundreds of ceilings in Washington which are decorated with this once fashionable finish. In order to get your ceilings looking sleek and contemporary once again, your Washington plasterer will be happy to cover them up with a smooth new finish. It could be that you actually like artex and may want your smooth, flat ceilings transformed by applying this material. Most Washington plasterers will be just as willing do this for you.

Rendering Washington: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process where a mix of sand, cement, lime and water is applied to exterior (and now and again internal) walls to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is a popular method all around Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire retarding qualities, although it's generally used for cosmetic purposes. While it is quite possible to paint a rendered wall, a much better alternative is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting end result.

Screeding Washington: Certain plasterers in Washington, Tyne and Wear will also offer a floor screeding service, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is normally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be covered with an appropriate floor finish (such as tiles, vinyl or wood), to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface or to cover underfloor heating pipes. A properly laid screed can help to lengthen the lifespan of a floor and ensure its durability, quality and finish. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used for smaller areas, in all other cases a screed pump should be employed to speedily guarantee an even, smooth mixture of sand, cement and water and to transport (pump) this perfect mix straight to its required location, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and similar equipment.

Pebble Dashing Washington: Though it is not to everyones taste pebble dashing has been around for many years and used to decorate and protect the exteriors of houses in Washington. There are pebble dashing specialists around, but quite often Washington plasterers will happily do this kind of job for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a form of external wall coating that typically consists of 2 layers of a base coat made of sand and lime into which small gravel, pebbles or shells are firmly pressed to form a strong, maintenance free and decorative finish on both new and renovated homes.

Artexing Washington: Though most common through the Seventies and Eighties artex still is an effective way to enhance the look of a ceiling, in particular a shabby or cracked one. It isn't quite as straightforward to find a plasterer who'll deal with artexing presently, where previously you would find a number of tradespeople who did nothing but apply artex and do artex patching. The thing that raised its attractiveness was possibly the large range of designs and styles that it was fashioned in, and it seemed to be the case that everybody had their favourite style, perhaps it was pairs, basket & roses, scroll, swirl, circles, hook & line, criss-cross, medusa, bark, broken leather or stippled. Whatever your taste, you'd find an artex style to suit. Of course you can still get ceilings done in all of these artex designs nowadays, simply identify a local Washington plasterer who continually executes this type of work, and not one which will simply "have a bash", in this manner you can ensure that you'll get a proper job made of it. The one snag with artex, and one that led to its decline, is it is very difficult to repair or patch.
