Polished Plastering Broxburn

Polished Plaster Broxburn

Polished plaster is basically the term applied to contemporary variations of classic Italian plasterered finishes which have been used to great effect for many centuries. Covering anything from rugged looking textured plasters to highly polished Venetian, Marmorino and Lucidato plasters, the name "Polished Plaster" in fact describes a number of good quality plaster finishes. Employed chiefly on interior ceilings and walls, polished plaster is designed to provide a surface finish that seems like polished marble, limestone or travertine. Polished plaster has natural variations of shade delivering a sense of depth whilst still smooth when touched. Additionally it is possible to blend these kinds of plasters to acquire unique custom finishes. Polished plaster can be tinted or coloured by using natural or artificial colourants. The capability to add a tint to Venetian plaster is particularly helpful when a specific "marble" style is required, or when a colour that does not exist in nature is wanted. To find out more regarding polished plaster, take a look at Wikipedia. Or head over to the Armourcoat "what is polished plaster?" page

Plasterboarding Broxburn (Dry Lining)

Plasterboarding (Dry Lining) Broxburn

There are lots of home renovation projects that will need dry lining to be undertaken, and a few Broxburn plasterers will be happy to do this for you. Dry lining is the name of the process by which plasterboard is fixed to a brick surface, a timber studding or metal Gypframe to produce a wall surface that doesn't have to be plastered. Whilst you could paint or decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, usually most people like to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coating to give it a harder and smoother finish. In regards to fittings, when fixing to a metal Gypframe self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used, when attaching plasterboard to wooden stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when attaching to a brick or masonry wall the "dot and dab" method is used.

Decorative Plastering Broxburn

Decorative Plastering Broxburn

Plastering is certainly not a modern day invention and was being carried out by the ancient Egyptians, Romans and Greeks many centuries ago. Preparations of clay and mud were used in those long past days. To help prevent the spread of fires in 13th century London, a form of plaster was placed on the interior walls of shops and buildings. As you will see whenever you go to visit buildings from this time, creative plaster mouldings and features were widely produced in Victorian and Georgian times. In the 21st Century, specialist plasterers are able to deliver amazing decorative effects by means of age-old techniques and modern materials. This can take numerous shapes and will incorporate the use of ceiling roses, brackets, cornice finishes, corbels, coving, dentils and niches.

Screeders Broxburn

Screeding in Broxburn UK (EH52)

Screeding involves the spreading of a cement and sand mix, to generate a new level floor surface. Typically screed will be applied over a rougher concrete sub-floor to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as floor boards, tiles or carpet), to cover underfloor heating pipes or to be left as a wearing floor surface. This will prolong the lifespan of the whole floor and assure its quality, finish and durability, for many years. Screed is only mixed by hand when relatively small areas of flooring are involved. For more substantial areas, a good screed pump needs to be used to guarantee an even and smooth mix of sand, cement and water, which is then pumped directly to the desired location.

Renderers Broxburn

Broxburn Renderers

Rendering is similar in technique to plastering, and is the process by which a mix of cement, lime, sand and water is applied to exterior (and now and again interior) walls in order to achieve a textured or smooth surface finish. Rendering is quite popular across Europe and is especially prevalent in the Mediterranean countries. A rendered finish is mostly used for aesthetic purposes but is also waterproof and has some useful fire retardant properties. While it is possible to apply paint to a rendered surface, a much better option is to colour the render itself, giving a more long lasting, durable finish.

Acoustic Plastering Broxburn

Improving sound insulation and reducing noise transmission within rooms are the primary objectives of the specialist service known as acoustic plastering, offered by plasterers in Broxburn. Part of the process involves the use of a specially formulated plaster that contains sound-absorbing additives or fibres. By controlling reverberation and echo, acoustic plaster contributes to the creation of a more acoustically balanced environment. This application finds common usage in spaces where noise control is crucial, including recording studios, conference rooms, theatres or classrooms. Enhancing sound quality and creating a quieter, more comfortable atmosphere in any space is possible due to the unique properties of acoustic plaster.

Acoustic plastering goes beyond technical excellence, revealing a visual subtlety that enhances its auditory finesse. In opposition to customary sound-absorbing materials, whose appearance often draws attention, acoustic plaster seamlessly becomes part of the present interior design. Its acoustic qualities are subtly improved while preserving the space's aesthetic integrity through the application of various colours and textures for finishing.
