With plastering it is preferable to get the perfect finish, directly from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from the finest Weybridge plasterers. Vigorous sanding isn't something you should ever have to do with a newly plastered wall or ceiling, merely a quick rub down with fine paper. You can pretty much assume that the plastering hasn't been done correctly if forceful sanding is called for. You should be very suspicious if you see the orbital sanders coming out or their boxes.

Plastering and Coving Weybridge

Plasterers perform many tasks but one of the most common in recent times, is plastering over old artex ceilings. A much loved form of finish in Weybridge during the 1970's and 1980's, artex is somewhat out of favour at present. Your Weybridge plasterer will jump at the chance to cover up those old artex ceilings and get your home looking sleek and modern once again. On the flip side, if you'd like to bring back that 1970's style, most plasterers will just as gladly slap some artex onto your flat, featureless ceilings.

Rendering Weybridge: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process where a mix of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to exterior (and occasionally interior) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is quite popular across Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resistant properties, although it's predominately used for cosmetic purposes. While it is of course possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, an even better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting end result.

Screeding Weybridge Surrey

Screeding Weybridge: A few plasterers in Weybridge can also provide floor screeding services, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is typically put on over a rougher concrete sub-floor to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as tiles, carpet or floor boards), to be left as a wearing floor surface or to cover underfloor heating pipes. A correctly laid screed can considerably extend the lifespan of the complete floor and ensure its quality, durability and finish. The hand mixing of screed should only be used where smaller areas are involved, and preferably a screed pump should be used to speedily guarantee a smooth, even mixture of sand and cement and to transport (pump) this fine mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the need for wheelbarrows and similar equipment.

Pebble Dashing Weybridge: Some people love it and some people hate it but pebbledashing has been used for many years to protect and decorate the outside of properties in Weybridge. There are people who specialise in pebbledashing around, but from time to time Weybridge plasterers will gladly do this type of job for you. Pebbledashing (or pebble dashing) is a kind of external wall coating typically consisting of a couple of layers of a base coat made from sand and lime into which small pebbles or gravel are firmly pressed to create a maintenance free, decorative and strong finish on both refurbished and new structures.

Plasterboarding Weybridge (Dry Lining): Quite a few plasterers in Weybridge also offer dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in plenty of improvement projects around the home. Dry lining is the procedure by which plasterboard is fixed to a brickwork or masonry surface, metal framing or a wood studding to form a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst you can decorate the plasterboard finish as it is, generally most like to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin coat of plaster to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used, when fixing to a metal framework self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used and when fixing plasterboard to wooden joists or studding, drywall screws or nails are used.

Plaster Weybridge: Plaster is a building material used for decorating or protecting walls and ceilings in Weybridge, and for making decorative features. In the United Kingdom the term "plaster" usually pertains to a material which is used on the insides of houses, while the material used on external surfaces is called "render". The most common kinds of plaster generally contain either lime, cement, or gypsum, but all work in much the same way. Plaster is a powder when manufactured and when needed, is simply mixed with water to produce a stiff, easy to work paste just prior to application. The reaction between the water and plaster generates heat by way of crystallization and the mix then sets and hardens. (Tags: Plastering Weybridge, Render Weybridge, Plaster Weybridge)
