Quotes for Plastering in Winsford

Any top notch Winsford plasterers will carry a portfolio (or at least some photos) of successfully completed jobs, ask to see it so you can make sure they know their stuff. For this kind of work, you certainly don't want to be hiring "cowboys". You could run into huge problems later on when the quality of the plastering is inferior, and these are not always immediately obvious.

It's when the painting and decorating starts that any defects become glaringly obvious to the naked eye. Any uneven plastered surface will look even worse in bright sunshine. When you've got the choice between competent plasterers in Winsford and bad ones, always use an experienced one.

Plaster always need to be smooth and flat, because it is just a base upon which other materials are applied. An unevenly plastered surface may lead to major issues with the installation of kitchen units, fitting skirting boards, the tiling of wall surfaces and the painting of the surfaces.

The aim of competent Winsford plasterers is to get a polished finish directly from the trowel, and you should expect nothing less. Sanding (especially with machine tools) should never be necessary on newly plastered ceilings and walls, a quick rub down with fine paper is all that should be needed. If any amount of forceful sanding is needed to smooth the plastered areas, they were not properly done in the first place. Be very suspicious of re-hiring plasterers who make use of power sanders.

Plastering and Coving Winsford

A typical reason for calling in a plasterer in recent times, is to plaster over an artexed ceiling. The "in" finish for ceilings throughout the 1970's and 80's, artex is not so widely used in Winsford at present. To make your artexed ceiling look more sleek and contemporary, most plasterers in Winsford will be happy to plaster over it. If however, you would like to bring a bit of that old style back into your home, most plasterers will be just as glad to coat your ceiling with artex as they are to cover it up.

Rendering Winsford: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of sand, lime, cement and water is applied to exterior (and now and again interior) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface finish. Rendering is popular all over Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish has some fire resistant qualities and is waterproof, although it's largely used for aesthetic purposes. While of course it is possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, an even better option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting end result.

Plasterboarding Winsford (Dry Lining): Certain plasterers in Winsford also provide dry lining services (plasterboarding), which will be required in plenty of improvement projects. Dry lining is the procedure by which plasterboard is attached to a metal frame, a wood studding or joist or a brick or masonry surface to produce a wall surface that does not have to be plastered. Whilst it is possible to decorate or paint the plasterboard finish itself after a bit of filling, normally most people like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine layer of plaster afterwards to give it an extra smooth finish. As for fittings, when fixing to a masonry or brick wall the "dot and dab" method is used, when fixing plasterboard to timber stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used and when fixing to a metal framework Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used.

Winsford plastering specialists can normally help you with skimming over brickwork, Venetian polish plastering, rendering with sand and cement, plastering over artex, plasterboard skimming, monocouche rendering, tyrolean rendering, blown plaster, flood and fire renovations, the rendering of breeze blocks, metal studding partitions, repairing holes in ceilings and walls, lime rendering, artex removal and restoration and other plastering work in Winsford, Cheshire.
