Plastering Weston-super-Mare

Weston-super-Mare Plasterers: If you have some plastering that needs doing on your home in Weston-super-Mare, you will be looking for a competent and professional plasterer to do a good job on your behalf. It matters not if it is just a small area, a whole room or your entire property, it is crucial that you get a good tradesman. If you are extremely confident you could try doing it yourself, but be warned, plastering takes many years of practise to master.

When embarking on a variety of home improvement jobs, you've got to consider the likelihood of plastering work being required. It might be fitting coving or cornices before decorating, plaster skimming a partition, plastering over artex or plaster repair prior to tiling. Actually, it could be any one of hundreds of plastering related tasks.

Weston-super-Mare Plasterers

Employing a plasterer who knows exactly what they're up to is the most important thing, so ask prospective Weston-super-Mare plasterers if they can show you a portfolio of their previous work. You certainly don't want to be hiring a "cowboy" for this type of work. Inferior plastering can cause huge problems as work progresses, and it may not even be apparent until the decorating starts.

Any defects in your newly plastered ceilings and walls will soon show up when a splash of paint is applied. Your freshly plastered surfaces will look even worse with the sunlight shining on them. So, make sure you only consider experienced plasterers in Weston-super-Mare.

Being level and smooth is the most crucial attribute for plastered surfaces, because they are just a base upon which other materials are applied. An irregular plastered surface will lead to severe complications with the decorating of ceilings and walls, the accurate fitting of architraves, the fitting of kitchen units and the tiling of wall surfaces.

What you really need is a perfect, polished finish right from the trowel, and the finest Weston-super-Mare plasterers can be trusted to produce results like this. You can tell when plastering has been done by a professional, because a quick rub down is all that is required and no heavy sanding is necessary. If any amount of strenuous sanding is needed to level out the plastered areas, they were not competently done in the first place. You should be very wary if you see the power sanders coming out or their boxes.

Weston-super-Mare Plastering and Coving

These days, one of the most common jobs a plasterer is asked to do, is cover up an artexed ceiling. Currently out of favour in Weston-super-Mare, artex was the most fashionable decorative finish for ceilings during the 1970's and 80's. Plastering over that artex ceiling to make it look more fresh and modern is something that most plasterers in Weston-super-Mare will gladly do. Many plasterers will also gladly put on a coat of artex if you'd like to bring back that 70's style to your ceilings.

Rendering Weston-super-Mare: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mixture of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to external (and occasionally interior) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is popular all over Europe and is particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resistant qualities, although it is mainly used for cosmetic purposes. While it is quite possible to paint a rendered wall, an even better solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result.

Screeding in Weston-super-Mare

Screeding Weston-super-Mare: A few plasterers in Somerset can also offer a floor screeding service, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is usually put on top of a concrete sub-floor to be left as a wearing floor surface, to encase underfloor heating pipes or to take on the final floor finish. An effectively laid screed can considerably increase the lifespan of the complete floor and establish its finish, quality and durability. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used where small areas are involved, in all other instances a screed pump should be employed to speedily ensure a smooth, even mix of sand, cement and water and to pump this fine mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the use of wheelbarrows and other paraphernalia.

Dry Lining Weston-super-Mare: Quite a few plasterers in Weston-super-Mare also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in a lot of home improvement jobs. Dry lining is the name of the process where plasterboard is mounted on a wooden studding or joist, a masonry or brickwork surface or metal Gypframe to produce a wall surface that does not need plastering. While it is possible to decorate the plasterboard finish as it is, in reality most people like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat afterwards to give it a smoother and harder finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a masonry or brick wall "dot and dab" drywall adhesive is used, when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing plasterboard to timber stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used.
