There are a lot of home improvement projects, even smaller ones, which end up with some plastering work having to be done.

The truth is, it could possibly be any of a host of plastering related tasks.

Viewing a portfolio of successfully completed work is a good way to determine the quality of any prospective Wigston plasterers, you need to find someone who knows exactly what they are up to. Plastering requires a focused approach and should not be done by "cowboys". You could run into significant problems as work progresses when the quality of the plastering is substandard, and these aren't always immediately apparent.

When your freshly plastered wall is given a splash of paint, any defects will soon become noticeable. They will probably look even worse with the sun shining on them. So, make sure you only consider competent plasterers in Wigston.

Smooth and level are the primary attributes of a plastered surface, because other materials will always be applied to it. An irregular plastered area will cause major problems with the fitting of architraves, the wallpapering and painting of the surfaces, the tiling of wall surfaces and the installation of kitchen units.

You should expect nothing less than the perfect finish straight from the trowel. You can recognize when plastering has been done by an expert, because a quick rub down is all that is required and no sanding is necessary. If vigorous sanding is necessary, you can assume that the plastering hasn't been done properly. If electric sanding machines are being used you might want to check out the quality of the work thoroughly.

Wigston Plastering and Coving

A common reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times, is to plaster over an old artex ceiling. Right now out of favour in Wigston, artex was the most widely used decorative finish for ceilings during the 1970's and 1980's. To get all your dated artex ceilings looking sleek and contemporary again, most Wigston plasterers will be happy to plaster over them. If however, you want to bring a bit of that 1970's style back into your home, most plasterers will be just as glad to coat your ceiling with artex as they are to plaster over it.

Rendering Wigston: Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process whereby a mixture of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to exterior (and sometimes internal) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is quite popular throughout Europe and is particularly common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish has some fire resistant qualities and is water resistant, although it's mainly employed for cosmetic purposes. While it is possible to paint a rendered wall, an even better option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting result. (Tags: Rendering Wigston, Renderers Wigston)

Dry Lining Wigston: Quite a few plasterers in Wigston also provide dry lining services, which are needed in plenty of home improvements. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is affixed to a wooden studding, Gypframe metal framing or a masonry or brickwork surface to create a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. Whilst you may decorate the plasterboard surface after a bit of filling, generally most folks opt to get the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat to give it a harder and smoother finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used, when fixing to a masonry or brick wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when fixing plasterboard to wooden studding or joists, drywall screws or nails are used.

Artexing Wigston: Whilst most popular in the Seventies and Eighties artex continues to be an easy way to enhance the appearance of a ceiling, especially a shabby or cracked one. It's not quite so simple to find a plasterer who will do artexing at the moment, whereby in the past you would find numerous tradespeople who did little else but apply artex and do artex patching. What helped its attractiveness was probably the broad range of designs that it was fashioned in, and it seemed to be the case that everybody had their favourite, maybe it might have been circle, medusa, stipple, hook & line, criss-cross, swirl, scroll, basket, broken leather, bark or pairs. No matter what your taste, you would find a style of artex to suit. You can of course still have ceilings done in all of these designs today, simply identify a local Wigston plasterer who constantly performs this type of work, rather that one who'll simply "give it a go", in this way you can be certain that you're going to get a good job done of it. The only disadvantage of artex, and what probably triggered its demise, is it is tricky to repair or patch.
