Polished Plaster Christchurch

Polished Plaster Christchurch

Polished plaster is essentially the term given to updated variations of traditional Italian plasterered finishes which have been used to good effect for many centuries. The expression covers a whole number of decorative plaster finishes - from the highly polished Marmorino, Lucidato and Venetian plaster to the rugged looking textured polished plasters. The technique is predominantly used on internal ceilings and walls, to offer a finish that looks like polished limestone, travertine or marble. It gives you a sense of depth by using natural variations in shade while remaining smooth and sleek to the touch. It is also quite possible to mix these forms of plasters to achieve quite distinctive tailor-made finishes. By the use of artificial or natural colourants, eye-catching colours or tints can be applied to the plaster finish. This is especially important when trying to accomplish "marbling" effects or produce designs and colours that do not exist in nature. For additional information regarding polished plaster, have a look at the Wikipedia "polished plaster" page. Or look at the Armourcoat "what is polished plaster?" page

Dry Lining (Plasterboarding) Christchurch

Plasterboarding (Dry Lining) Christchurch

There are a few home refurbishment projects that will require dry lining (plasterboarding) to be done, and several Christchurch plasterers should be able to tackle this for you. By mounting plasterboard onto Gypframe metal framing, a brickwork or masonry surface or a timber studding, a smooth, flat wall surface is created which does not have to be plastered. At times the plasterboard itself is decorated, although mostly it will be skimmed with a fine coat of finishing plaster, that can be papered or painted without the need for filling. As for fittings, when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" drywall adhesive is used, when attaching to a metal frame self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used and when attaching plasterboard to timber joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used.

Acoustic Plastering Christchurch

If you've ever battled with an echo in a room or struggled to hear conversations in a noisy space, then acoustic plastering could be your solution. This innovative technique tackles sound control by using specialised plaster that absorbs sound waves. Unlike its standard counterpart, acoustic plaster incorporates fibres or aggregates that disrupt sound energy, reducing unwanted echoes and creating a more comfortable acoustic environment.

Thankfully, modern acoustic plaster systems are entirely safe, having replaced the hazardous asbestos used in historical iterations. These systems typically feature a two-layered design. The initial layer, often constructed from mineral wool or a particular blown-glass granulate, acts as the core for sound absorption. Finishing coats are then applied on top, providing a smooth and aesthetically pleasing finish while further dampening sound.

Ditch the bulky acoustic panels and opt for the elegance of acoustic plaster. This innovative soundproofing solution boasts a seamless, uninterrupted finish, eliminating the need for unsightly grids. Furthermore, its flexibility allows for application on curved surfaces and unique shapes, giving you the freedom to create a truly bespoke design. And for added functionality, some acoustic plaster systems can even be integrated with cooling and heating, making them a perfect all-in-one solution for a variety of spaces.
