Plasterers Weybridge

Weybridge Plasterers: When your home in Weybridge needs some plastering work doing, it doesn't matter whether minor or substantial, you will be wanting to locate a seasoned and professional plasterer to do the job with the utmost care and attention. Mastering the art of plastering can take many years of practise, so it isn't a job you can do yourself unless you are very confident in what you're doing.

Some plastering work is often needed, even on modest home improvement jobs. It may be latex screeding, installing coving or mouldings before decorating, re-plastering a ceiling or plaster skimming a partition. The fact is, it could be any one of a host of plastering related chores.

Plasterers Weybridge

There are numerous ways to find out if prospective Weybridge plasterers know their stuff, one way is to ask for a portfolio of past jobs. You don't want to get landed with a bunch of "cowboys" doing your plastering. Even substandard plastering can sometimes look reasonable at first, but as work progresses, the problems start.

The defects will soon show up on the freshly plastered wall as soon as a coat of paint has been applied to it. When viewed in bright daylight, even more imperfections will show up on any defective surfaces. So, make sure you only consider experienced plasterers in Weybridge.

Smooth and flat are the primary attributes of a plastered surface, since other materials will always be applied to it. An imperfectly plastered area may lead to severe problems with any area of tiling (kitchens or bathrooms), the fitting of architraves, the painting and decorating of walls and ceilings and the installation of kitchen units.

The most sought after Weybridge plasterers have reputations to keep up and will always seek to get the perfect finish directly from the trowel, wherever possible. A plastered ceiling or wall should never have to be sanded down to get a nice finish, it should only need a quick rub with fine glasspaper before it is decorated. If the finished plastering needs vigorous sanding, you know that it hasn't been done properly. There is certainly something amiss with your plasterer, if you hear the buzz of electric sanding machines.

Weybridge Plastering and Coving

These days, one common reason to call in a plasterer is to cover an old artexed ceiling. There are still a large number of ceilings in Weybridge that are decorated with this once fashionable finish. In order to get your ceilings looking fresh and modern once more, your Weybridge plasterer will be happy to cover them up with a smooth new finish. On the flip side, if you want to bring back that 1970's style, most plasterers will just as gladly slap some artex on your currently smooth ceilings.

Rendering Weybridge: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process whereby a mix of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes internal) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is a popular method throughout Europe and is particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire retarding properties, although it's principally used for aesthetic purposes. While it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a much better solution is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting end result.

Screeding Weybridge: A number of plasterers in Weybridge also offer screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is created using a cement mix. Screeding is generally applied on top of a concrete sub-floor to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface, to cover underfloor heating pipes or to take on the final floor finish. A properly laid screed can considerably lengthen the lifespan of a floor and establish its finish, quality and durability. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used for small areas, and preferably a proper screed pump should be used to rapidly ensure a smooth, even mixture of cement and sand and to transport (pump) this fine mix straight to where its needed, avoiding the use of paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like. There are several different types of floor screed available in Weybridge, so you should enquire about which is appropriate for your project, you will need to choose from traditional screed, bonded screed, floor levelling compound, unbonded screed, structural screed, fast drying screed and free-flowing screed.

Pebble Dashing Weybridge: Although it isn't to everybodys taste pebbledashing has been used for many years to decorate and protect the external walls of dwellings in Surrey. There are pebbledashing specialists out there, but often Weybridge plasterers will happily do this kind of job for you. Pebbledashing (or pebble dashing) is a kind of exterior wall covering which normally consists of a couple of layers of a base coat made from lime and sand into which small pebbles or gravel are pressed to create an attractive, maintenance free and robust finish on both new and refurbished houses.

Artexing Weybridge SurreyArtexing Weybridge: Even though most popular through the 1970's and 1980's artex continues to be an effective way to improve the look of a ceiling, particularly a shabby or cracked one. It is not quite as easy to obtain a plasterer who will do artexing nowadays, whereby in the good old days you could find a number of tradesmen who did little else but artexing and artex repairs. The thing that raised its attractiveness was the wide selection of designs that it was applied in, and it appeared to be the case that everyone had their preferred style, possibly it was scroll, broken leather, pairs, medusa, hook & line, basket & roses, swirl, bark, criss-cross, stipple or circles. Whatever your taste, there appeared to be a style of artex to suit. You can obviously still have ceilings done in any of these styles today, simply identify a local Weybridge plasterer who constantly carries out this sort of work, rather that one which will simply "have a bash", by doing this you can be certain that you'll get a good job done of it. The one disadvantage of artex, and one that led to its drop in popularity, is that it is really difficult to patch or repair.
