The most critical attribute of plastered surfaces is that they be smooth and flat. It's quite easy to fill and sand down any small cracking and blemishes, but it is hard to conceal fundamentally irregular plaster.

With plastering it's necessary to get the perfect finish, directly from the trowel, and this is what you should be expecting from the busiest Hadleigh plasterers. You should never have to do any sanding on a plastered wall or ceiling aside from a quick rub down before decorating. You would be correct in thinking that the plastering hasn't been done to an acceptable level if too much sanding is necessary. If the use of electric sanders is becoming commonplace, there is certainly something is amiss with your plasterer.

Hadleigh Plastering and Coving

Plasterers perform many tasks but one of the most common nowadays, is plastering over artexed ceilings. Many houses in Hadleigh had ceilings that were coated with artex during the seventies and eighties, when it was the height of fashion. Covering that dated artex ceiling with plaster is something that most Hadleigh plasterers will jump at the chance to do in order to make it look more sleek and contemporary. Plastering over artex is preferable to removing it because it is pretty difficult to take off or repair, which is no doubt why its popularity waned in the first place.

Do-it-Yourself Plastering Hadleigh: Although when you have plastering work that needs to be carried out in your home or business premises in Hadleigh, it is preferable to call in a reputable plasterer to tackle it, it's still quite possible to have a crack on your own, if you have the confidence and are reasonable at DIY. Doing a test run on a spare bedroom or an out of sight area is definitely a great idea when you're starting your initial plastering journey. Whenever possible try to choose a wall that already has an inaccurately plastered finish, so that your efforts can't make it much worse. This is likely to be less stressful for you, and enable you to spend some time mastering your newly acquired skills. It's possible to re-skim a wall surface as many times as you want within reason, and you can quite easily have another go if you don't do a decent job the first time around.

The thing that helped its attractiveness was the a wide variety of styles and designs that it could be fashioned in, and it appeared to be the case that everyone had their favourite design, perhaps it might have been hook & line, criss-cross, swirl, stipple, bark, circle, pairs, scroll, basket & flowers, broken leather or medusa. No matter what your taste, there seemed to be a style of artex to match. Every one of these artex styles can still be achieved today if you can find an artexer of plumber willing to do it. Stay away from handyman type people who will just "have a go". The only pitfall with artex, and one that brought about its decline, is that it is hard to repair or patch.

Polished Plastering Hadleigh

Polished Plaster Hadleigh (SS7)

Polished plaster is a typical term for the finished surface of several plasters and for the classification of updated styles of old fashioned Italian plaster finishes. The phrase "Polished Plaster" is in fact used to describe a comparatively wide array of superior plaster finishes, from rugged textured plasters to very highly polished Venetian, Lucidato and Marmorino plasters. The technique is generally used internally, on walls and ceilings, to supply a finish that looks like polished marble, travertine or limestone. Polished plaster has natural variations of shade providing an impression of depth whilst still being smooth when touched. Special custom finishes can be created by blending these different kinds of plasters. With the use of natural or artificial colourants polished plaster can be given attractive colours or tints. This is particularly handy when trying to achieve "marbling" effects or produce designs and colours that don't exist naturally.

Screeders Hadleigh

Hadleigh Screeders (SS7)

Many plasterers in Essex will also provide a floor screeding service, by which a new level floor surface is formed by using a cement and sand mix. Screeding is typically applied over a concrete sub-floor to be left as a wearing floor surface, to cover underfloor heating pipes or to take on the final floor finish. This will considerably prolong the life of a floor and assure its quality, finish and durability, for years to come. A proper screed pump must be employed to rapidly produce an even, smooth mixture of cement, sand and water and to transport (pump) this perfect mix straight to its required location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such like. The hand mixing of screed should only be used for smaller areas.

Rendering Hadleigh

Rendering Hadleigh Essex UK

The procedure of applying a mixture of sand, cement, lime and water to both interior and exterior walls in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface, is known as rendering, and it is a very similar skill to plastering. Rendering is especially common in the Mediterranean region, but is also popular all around Europe. A rendered finish is water resistant and has some fire resistant qualities, though it is generally used for aesthetic purposes. You can obtain a more resilient and long lasting surface finish by colouring the render mix itself, though it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall.
