A plastered wall or ceiling should never need to be sanded down to get a good finish, it ought to only need a quick rub down with fine sandpaper before it is decorated. If the plastering hasn't been done competently, vigorous sanding may be needed, and this calls the plasterers ability into question. There is certainly something amiss with your plasterer, if you hear the sound of electric sanders.

Polished Plastering Portishead

Polished Plaster Portishead (BS20)

Polished plaster is a typical name for the surface finish of several plasters and for the classification of new and updated forms of conventional Italian plasterered finishes. Describing anything from rugged textured plasters to really highly polished Marmorino, Lucidato and Venetian plasters, the phrase "Polished Plaster" actually covers a wide range of top quality plaster finishes. Employed largely on interior ceilings and walls, polished plaster is designed to give a finished surface that seems like polished travertine, limestone or marble. Polished plaster is smooth and sleek to the touch whilst offering natural shade variations and a sense of depth. By the mixing up of these various forms of plaster compounds it's quite possible to create distinct customized finishes that can be used to great effect. Polished plaster can be dyed or coloured using artificial or natural colourants. If you want to achieve a "marbled" effect in your polished plaster, or completely unique designs or colours which do not exist naturally, the capability to add tinting to Venetian plaster is particularly helpful.


Screeding Portishead Somerset UK (BS20)

Screeding is a technique by which a flat, smooth floor surface is established by using a cement mix. The application of screeding is usually carried out over a concrete sub-floor to encase underfloor heating pipes, to take on the final floor finish or to be left as a wearing floor surface. A correctly laid screed can help to extend the life of the complete floor and ensure its quality, durability and finish. A proper screed pump needs to be used to rapidly guarantee an even, smooth mix of sand, cement and water and to transport (pump) this perfect mix directly to its exact location. The mixing of screed by hand should only be used where smaller areas are involved. Varied types of screeding are available including: free-flowing screed, traditional screed, bonded screed, structural screed, fast drying screed, unbonded screed and floor levelling compound.
