There are various ways to find out if potential Whitefield plasterers know their stuff, one approach is to ask for a portfolio of previous jobs.

Plaster always need to be smooth and flat, because it is just a base upon which other materials are applied. A shoddily plastered area can cause serious problems with the installation of kitchen units, the painting and decorating of the surfaces, the tiling of wall surfaces and fitting skirting boards.

With plastering it is preferable to get a polished finish, directly from the trowel, and this is what you can usually expect from top notch Whitefield plasterers. You can tell when plastering has been done by a professional, because a quick rub down is all that is required and no sanding is necessary. If the finished plastering needs forceful sanding, you know that it has not been done correctly. You should be very wary if you see the orbital sanders coming out or their boxes.

Plastering and Coving Whitefield

In recent times, one common reason to call in a plasterer is to cover an old artex ceiling. At the height of fashion in the 70's and 80's, artex is out of favour in Whitefield homes today. Most plasterers in Whitefield will be more than happy to plaster over that dated artex ceiling, to make it look more sleek and modern. On the reverse side, most plasterers will also apply artex to your ceilings if you would like to bring back that 70's style.

Rendering Whitefield: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to external (and now and again interior) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is a popular method all over Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is waterproof and has some fire resisting properties, though it's generally employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is acceptable to apply paint to a rendered wall, a better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable end result.

Plasterboarding Whitefield (Dry Lining): Several plasterers in Whitefield also offer dry lining services, which are needed in a lot of improvement projects. Dry lining is the process where plasterboard is affixed to a wooden studding or joist, metal Gypframe or a brickwork surface to produce a wall surface that does not need plastering. Whilst you can decorate the plasterboard finish as it is, in general most elect to get the plasterboard skimmed with a thin layer of plaster 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 brick or masonry wall "dot and dab" drywall adhesive is used and when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.
