Plastering Wolverhampton

Wolverhampton Plasterers: If you have some plastering that needs doing in your home in Wolverhampton, you will be looking for an experienced and professional plasterer to do a good job on your behalf. It doesn't matter if it is just a small area, a whole room or your entire property, you still need a good tradesman. Plasterers can take several years to perfect their art, so plastering isn't really something you can do for yourself.

A certain amount of plastering work can be created by even the smallest home improvement projects. It might be re-plastering a ceiling, skimming dry lining, screeding or fitting cornices or coving before decorating. In fact, it may be any one of a number of plastering related tasks.

Before any work starts you need to check out prospective Wolverhampton plasterers to see if they know their stuff. Ask to see some photos or a portfolio of completed projects. Plastering requires an organised attitude and should not be attempted by "cowboys". You will quickly come to realise the many complications that can arise as a result of shoddy plastering.

Once a coat or two of paint goes on a newly plastered wall or ceiling, you will soon become aware of any imperfections. Defective surfaces become even more accentuated in bright daylight. You'll avoid this problem by only selecting from decent plasterers in Wolverhampton.

Level and smooth are the primary attributes of a plastered surface, because other materials will always be applied to it. An unevenly plastered surface may cause serious issues with the painting and wallpapering of walls and ceilings, kitchen or bathroom tiling, the fitting of skirtings and the fitting of kitchen units.

The busiest Wolverhampton plasterers have reputations to keep up and will always aim to get a polished finish directly from the trowel, where possible. A plastered ceiling or wall should never need to be sanded down to get a good finish, it should only require a quick rub with fine glasspaper before it is decorated. You might reasonably anticipate some areas that need a little attention with sandpaper, but not to any significant degree. If you see the electric sanding machines coming out you should be very wary.

Wolverhampton Plastering and Coving

Plastering over artexed ceilings is one of the most common reasons for contacting plasterers in recent times. At the height of fashion during the 1970's and 1980's, artex is out of favour in Wolverhampton properties at present. Those artex ceilings can be made to look fresh and contemporary once again by bringing in your Wolverhampton plasterer to cover them up. If you are more retro in your taste, you might wish to give your currently smooth ceilings a little character by actually putting on artex.

Rendering Wolverhampton: Rendering is a similar procedure to plastering, and is the process where a mix of lime, sand, cement and water is applied to external (and now and again interior) walls to obtain a textured or smooth surface. Rendering is quite popular across Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean region. A rendered finish has some fire retarding properties and is water resistant, although it's principally used for cosmetic purposes. While it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall, a better solution is to mix colour into the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable finish.
