Viewing a portfolio of successfully completed work is a good way to assess the quality of any prospective Wednesbury plasterers, you need to find someone who knows exactly what they're up to.

Once a coat of paint goes on a newly plastered wall, you will soon become aware of any defects. Your freshly plastered surfaces will probably look even worse with the sun shining on them. So, make sure you only consider competent plasterers in Wednesbury.

You should bear in mind that the plastering is a base on which other materials are applied, so it should be smooth and level.

The busiest Wednesbury plasterers have their reputations to keep up and will always aim to get a perfect, polished finish directly from the trowel, where possible. Vigorous sanding is not something you should ever have to do with a newly plastered ceiling or wall, only a quick rub down with fine paper. If a lot of sanding is taking place, the plastering was not 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 Wednesbury

Plastering over an old artexed ceiling is one common reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times. A much loved decorative finish for ceilings in Wednesbury during the 70's and 80's, the popularity of artex has decreased recently. To get all your old artexed ceilings looking fresh and modern again, most Wednesbury plasterers will jump at the chance to plaster over them. It could be that you actually love artex and may want your smooth ceilings transformed by applying this material. Most Wednesbury plasterers will just as gladly do this for you.

Rendering Wednesbury: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process by which a mixture of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to exterior (and now and again interior) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is a popular method across Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish has some fire resisting properties and is waterproof, though it's mainly employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is acceptable to apply paint to a rendered wall, a more effective alternative is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result.

Plasterboarding Wednesbury (Dry Lining): Many plasterers in Wednesbury also offer dry lining services, which are needed in a lot of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is mounted on metal framing, a masonry or brickwork surface or a timber studding or joist to form a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. While it's feasible to decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, in reality most prefer to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin coat of plaster to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used, when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing to a metal frame self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used.
