Screeders Perton

Screeding in Perton UK (WV6)

Some plasterers in Staffordshire also provide floor screeding services, where a new level floor surface is formed by using a cement mix. Screeding is typically put on top of a concrete sub-floor to take on the final floor finish, to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface or to encase underfloor heating pipes. This will help to lengthen the life of the complete floor and assure its quality, durability and finish, for many years. Screed is only ever mixed by hand where relatively small areas of floor are being worked on. For bigger areas, a quality screed pump needs to be used to guarantee a smooth and even mix of cement and sand, which can then be pumped directly to the desired location.

Rendering Perton

Rendering is the method whereby a mixture of sand, cement, lime and water is put on to walls (both interior and exterior), to achieve a smooth or textured surface finish, with a technique that is very similar to plastering. Rendering is a popular method all around Europe and is especially common in the Mediterranean region. Mostly employed for aesthetic purposes a rendered surface has some useful fire resistant properties and is also waterproof. You can get a more resilient and long lasting finish by adding colour to the render itself, though it is possible to apply paint to a rendered wall.

Plasterboarding (Dry Lining)

Plasterboarding (Dry Lining) Perton

There are a number of home refurbishment assignments that will need dry lining (plasterboarding) to be done, and a few Perton plasterers will be able to carry this out for you. By attaching plasterboard to metal framing, a brickwork or masonry surface or a wooden studding or joist, a surface is produced which doesn't need plastering. While you may decorate or paint the plasterboard surface after a bit of filling, in general most choose to have the plasterboard skimmed with a thin plaster coat to give it that extra special, smooth finish. As for fittings, when attaching to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" bonding is used, when fixing plasterboard to wood studding or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a metal framework self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.

What is Plaster?

Plaster Perton

Employed for protecting and decorating the walls and ceilings of buildings, plaster is a material which has been in use since the times of the Egyptians. The term "plaster" typically relates to the material which is used on the interior of structures in Perton. The material used for exterior walls is called "render". Plaster mixes usually contain either cement, gypsum, or lime, all of which work in fairly similar ways. Combined with water to make a stiff, easily workable paste, plaster is simply a fine, dry powder at the time of manufacture. The resulting reaction between the plaster powder and water produces heat through crystallization and the mixture subsequently hardens.
