Plastering Wellington

Wellington Plasterers: Whether you are needing to have your entire home in Wellington plastered, just one room re-skimmed, or only one small section of plaster repaired, you will be hunting for an experienced and professional plasterer to carry out the work properly. Plasterers can take many years to perfect their art, so plastering is not really something you can do yourself.

Plastering work needs to be done on an array of home improvement projects, even smaller ones. It may be skimming a partition, installing mouldings or coving before decorating, rendering a patched up wall or plaster repair prior to tiling. In truth, it may be any of a host of plastering related tasks.

Plasterers Wellington

Ask prospective Wellington plasterers if they have a portfolio of successfully accomplished jobs, the most critical factor is to employ a plasterer who knows what they are up to. You do not want to get landed with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering. Though it may not always be immediately apparent, poor quality plastering can cause big complications down the line.

When a splash of paint is applied to your freshly plastered walls and ceilings, the defects will become glaringly obvious. Any uneven plastered surface will look even worse in bright daylight. There are lots of good plasterers in Wellington, so be sure to track down an experienced one.

Level and smooth are the primary attributes of a plastered surface, since other materials will always be applied to it. An imperfectly plastered surface could cause serious issues with any area of tiling (bathrooms or kitchens), the fitting of skirtings, the painting and wallpapering of the surfaces and the fitting of kitchen units.

With plastering it is preferable to get the perfect finish, straight from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from the most experienced Wellington plasterers. A plastered ceiling or wall should never need to be sanded down to get a good finish, it should only require a quick rub with fine glasspaper before it is decorated. If any amount of forceful sanding is needed to smooth the plastered areas, they were not competently done in the first place. There is certainly something amiss with your plasterer, if you hear the buzz of orbital sanders.

Wellington Plastering and Coving

Plasterers perform many tasks but among the most common in recent times, is plastering over old artexed ceilings. The "in" finish for ceilings in the 70's and 80's, artex is not so widely used in Wellington at present. To get all your old artexed ceilings looking sleek and contemporary again, most Wellington plasterers will jump at the chance to plaster over them. If the opposite is the case, then most plasterers will bring that old style back again by slapping on a coat of artex.

Rendering Wellington: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mixture of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to external (and occasionally interior) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is very popular across Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resistant qualities, although it is principally used for cosmetic purposes. While of course it is possible to paint a rendered wall, an even better option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable result.

Pebble Dashing Wellington: Some people love it and some people hate it but pebble dashing has been used for many years to protect and decorate the exteriors of dwellings in Wellington, Shropshire. There are tradesmen specialise in pebble dashing around, but from time to time Wellington plasterers will do this sort of job for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a kind of exterior wall covering which typically consists of 2 layers of a base coat made of sand and lime onto which small pebbles, gravel or shells are pressed to form an attractive, tough and maintenance free finish on both new and refurbished buildings.

Dry Lining Wellington: A few plasterers in Wellington also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is affixed to a brick surface, Gypframe metal framing or a wood studding to produce a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst you may decorate or paint the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, usually most elect to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat afterwards to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to timber stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used, when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall "dot and dab" adhesive is used and when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used.
