Plastering West Bridgford

West Bridgford Plasterers: When your home in West Bridgford needs some plastering work doing, it doesn't matter whether minor or substantial, you'll be wanting to find a seasoned and professional plasterer to do the job with much care and attention. Plastering can take years of practise to master, so you really should not attempt to do it by yourself.

Any decent West Bridgford plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some photos) of successfully completed jobs, ask to see it so that you can make sure they know their stuff. You certainly don't want to be hiring a "cowboy" for this kind of work. You could run into huge problems later on when the quality of the plastering is inferior, and these aren't always immediately apparent.

When a splash of paint is applied to your freshly plastered walls and ceilings, the imperfections will become blindingly obvious. Your newly plastered surfaces will appear even worse with the sun shining on them. By selecting only from decent plasterers in West Bridgford, you will avoid this issue.

Since plaster is always covered up by other materials it is easy to forget how crucial it is that it is smooth and flat. An unevenly plastered surface will lead to serious issues with the painting of the surfaces, the installation of kitchen units, the accurate fitting or skirting boards and any area of tiling (bathrooms or kitchens).

You can always tell top notch West Bridgford plasterers because they invariably get a polished finish, directly from the trowel. Vigorous sanding is not something that you should ever have to do with a newly plastered wall or ceiling, only a quick rub down with fine paper. If forceful sanding is required, you can safely assume that your plastering hasn't been done properly. Be very suspicious of re-hiring plasterers who make use of power sanders.

West Bridgford Plastering and Coving

Plastering over old artexed ceilings is one of the most common reasons for contacting plasterers these days. A much loved decorative finish for ceilings in West Bridgford during the nineteen seventies and eighties, the popularity of artex has decreased in recent times. To give your ceilings that sleek and modern look once again, most plasterers in West Bridgford will be happy to cover them with plaster. Those of you who are more retro in taste may wish to have your artex ceilings repaired and brought back to their former glory.

Rendering West Bridgford: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mix of lime, cement, sand and water is applied to exterior (and now and again internal) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is particularly widespread in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire retarding qualities and is waterproof, although it's predominately employed for cosmetic purposes. While of course it is possible to paint a rendered wall, a better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result.

Dry Lining West Bridgford (Plasterboarding): Certain plasterers in West Bridgford also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be needed in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the procedure by which plasterboard is attached to a metal frame, a brickwork surface or a wooden studding to produce a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst it's feasible to decorate or paint the plasterboard surface itself, in general most like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coating afterwards to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing plasterboard to wooden studding 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 Gypframe self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.
