Plastering Woking

Woking Plasterers: Whether you have a small plastering task or a substantial plastering project to be done on your property in Woking, you'll need an experienced and professional plasterer to handle the work in a correct and proper manner. If you're extremely confident you could try doing it yourself, but be aware, plastering takes many years of practise to master.

Even seemingly simple home improvement projects can generate the need for plastering work. It might be skimming a partition, plastering over an old artexed ceiling, plaster repair before tiling or installing coving or cornices before decorating. In truth, it might possibly be any of dozens of plastering related tasks.

The most important detail is to hire a plasterer who knows what they're doing and has a portfolio of successfully completed jobs that they can show you. Plastering requires a methodical approach and should not be attempted by "cowboys". You could run into significant problems down the line when the quality of the plastering is sloppy, and these are not always immediately obvious.

The imperfections will soon manifest on the freshly plastered wall once a coat of paint has gone onto it. Such flaws will be even more accentuated when viewed in bright daylight. It should always be possible to locate competent plasterers in Woking, so why pick an inferior one?

Plaster always need to be level and smooth, because it is just a base on which other materials are applied. A poorly plastered area will cause major issues with the decorating of ceilings and walls, the installation of kitchen units, the fitting of architraves and any area of tiling.

Experienced Woking plasterers have reputations to keep up and will always aim to get a polished finish right from the trowel, whenever possible. Sanding (particularly with machine tools) should never be necessary on newly plastered walls and ceilings, a quick rub down with fine glasspaper is all that should be needed. If extensive sanding is taking place, the plastering wasn't done properly in the first place. The alarm bells should certainly be ringing out if electric sanders are being used with any regularity.

Woking Plastering and Coving

One of the most commonplace tasks for plasterers in recent times, is plastering over artex ceilings. A widely used decorative finish for ceilings in Woking during the seventies and eighties, the popularity of artex has decreased in recent times. To get all your old artexed ceilings looking sleek and modern again, most Woking plasterers will jump at the chance to plaster over them. Many plasterers will also gladly put on a coat of artex if you'd like to bring back that 70's style for your ceilings.

Rendering Woking: Rendering is a similar technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of cement, sand, lime and water is applied to exterior (and now and again interior) walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface. Rendering is extremely popular all over Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire retarding properties, although it's generally employed for aesthetic purposes. While it is of course possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a more effective option is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more durable, long lasting end result.

Screeding Woking: Some plasterers in Surrey can also offer a floor screeding service, whereby a smooth, level floor surface is formed using a cement mix. Screeding is normally put on top of a concrete sub-floor to encase underfloor heating pipes, to be covered with a floor finish (such as carpet, vinyl, tiles or wood) or to be left as a wearing floor surface. An effectively laid screed can lengthen the lifespan of the complete floor and establish its finish, durability and quality. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used where small areas are involved, and preferably a proper screed pump should be used to swiftly guarantee a smooth, even mix of cement, sand and water and to pump this fine mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the use of wheelbarrows and other equipment.

Pebble Dashing Woking: While it is not everyone's cup of tea pebble dashing has been used for many years to decorate and protect the outside walls of houses in Surrey. There are people who specialise in pebble dashing around, but quite often Woking plasterers will gladly do this kind of work for you. Pebble dashing (or pebbledashing) is a kind of external wall coating that generally consists of 2 layers of a base coat made from sand and lime into which small pebbles or gravel are pressed to form a tough, maintenance free and attractive finish on both renovated and new structures.
