Even modest home improvement jobs could call for some plastering work to be done. It could be skimming dry lining, applying some screeding, re-plastering a ceiling or fitting coving or cornices before decorating. Then again, any one of a number of plastering related tasks may be necessary.

Plasterers in Rayleigh

There are various means by which to verify that potential Rayleigh plasterers really know their stuff, one way is to ask for a portfolio of previous assignments. For this type of work, you should avoid employing "cowboys", no matter what. Even inferior plastering can occasionally look passable at first, but down the line, the complications start.

When you start decorating, the imperfections will start to show up. When viewed in bright sunlight, even more imperfections will show up on any uneven surfaces. There are plenty of good plasterers in Rayleigh, so make sure you pick a competent one.

Because plastering is usually concealed by other products and materials it's easy to forget how important it is that it is smooth and flat. Irregular surfaces are hard to conceal, however trivial dents and cracking can easily be repaired with filler later without too much trouble. An irregular plastered surface may lead to severe difficulties with the painting of ceilings and walls, the installation of kitchen units, fitting skirting boards and any area of tiling.

A perfect, polished finish, straight from the trowel is what you can anticipate from top notch Rayleigh plasterers. You can recognise when plastering has been done by an expert, since a quick rub down is all that is needed and no heavy sanding is necessary. You may realistically anticipate some areas that need a bit of attention with sandpaper, but not to any great degree. If electric sanders are being employed you need to check the quality of the work meticulously.

Plastering and Coving Rayleigh

While you may call on the services of a plasterer for many different tasks, a common reason in recent times is for plastering over artex ceilings. Currently somewhat out of favour in Rayleigh, artex was the most fashionable decorative finish for ceilings during the nineteen seventies and eighties. Those artexed ceilings can be made to look fresh and modern once again by bringing in your Rayleigh plasterer to cover them up. If the opposite is the case, then most plasterers will bring that 70's style back again by slapping on a coat of artex.

Do-it-Yourself Plastering Rayleigh: Although when you have plastering work that has to be done in your house in Rayleigh, it is better to employ a reputable plasterer to tackle it, it's still quite possible to have a crack yourself, if you have the confidence and are good at do-it-yourself. Practicing on a spare bedroom or an out of sight area is definitely a wise idea when you're starting out on your initial plastering adventure. When possible try to choose an area that's already got an inaccurately plastered finish, so your efforts can hardly make it any worse. This will enable you to test out your newly found skills and should be less stressful than taking on a wall surface that everybody will regularly see. Within reason, it's possible for you to re-plaster a wall as many times as you wish, therefore if you make a hash of it to begin with, you can simply go back and re-do it as your skills get better.

DIY Plastering Rayleigh UK

If you don't want to go to the extreme of signing up for a plastering course, you might be able to get some really good tips and advice by watching and studying YouTube tutorials, although it isn't always as easy as the experts make it seem in those videos. Practice makes perfect as the saying goes, and plastering is no exception - the more you practice the more confident and adroit you get. By using trial and error you might even think up you own techniques for getting a flawless finish. But if you're unsure, keep to the tried and true methods. Confidence is the most crucial factor with plastering, and the more you do it, the more confident you're likely to become. You can tackle some more advanced plastering projects as soon as you've perfected the art to a reasonable degree. If everything goes awry and you bodge the plastering, you can always call in a reputable plasterer to correct your errors.

Polished Plastering Rayleigh

Polished Plaster Rayleigh (SS6)

Extremely favoured as of late, polished plaster is an updated adaptation of classic Italian plaster finishes. Covering anything from rugged textured plasters to really highly polished Marmorino, Venetian and Lucidato plasters, the name "Polished Plaster" actually describes a wide range of good quality plaster finishes. This technique is mainly used internally, on walls and ceilings, to supply a finished surface that looks like polished marble, travertine or limestone. Polished plaster is smooth to touch while offering natural variations of shade and a distinct feeling of depth. By the mixing up of these different sorts of plaster compounds it is actually possible to come up with distinct customised finishes which can be employed to great effect. By making use of synthetic or natural colourants, appealing colours or tints can be applied to the polished plaster finish. This is especially helpful when trying to create "marbling" effects or produce colours and designs that don't exist in nature.

Decorative Plastering

Decorative Plastering

Plastering is by no means a modern innovation and was being accomplished by the ancient Romans, Greeks and Egyptians in the far distant past. Blends of both mud and clay were used in those long gone days. To help prevent the spread of fires in 13th century London, a kind of plaster was placed on the interior walls of shops and buildings. Buildings of the Victorian and Georgian eras were extensively decorated with features and mouldings made out of plaster of paris or gypsum. In these modern times, specialized plasterers can create stunning decorative effects using age-old techniques combined with modern materials. This could include the application of cornices, dentils, corbels, coving, brackets, ceiling roses and niches.

Screeding Rayleigh

Screeding Rayleigh Essex UK (SS6)

Screeding entails the pouring and spreading of a cement mix, to produce a smooth, level floor surface. In most cases screed is put on over a rougher concrete sub-floor to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface, to encase underfloor heating pipes or to take on the final floor finish. This will prolong the life of the whole floor and positively affect its quality, finish and durability, for several years. A decent screed pump must be used to quickly guarantee an even, smooth mixture of cement, sand and water and to transport (pump) this fine mix directly to its required location. The hand mixing of screed should only be used for small areas. Among the many different kinds of floor screeding are: structural screed, floor levelling compound, free-flowing screed, bonded screed, traditional screed, fast drying screed and unbonded screed.

Plasterboarding (Dry Lining) Rayleigh

Plasterboarding Rayleigh (Dry Lining)

Some plasterers in Rayleigh also offer dry lining services, which will be required in plenty of improvement projects. A procedure which creates a surface that does not need plastering, dry lining is mounted on Gypframe metal framing, a wooden studding or a brickwork or masonry surface. Although in a few situations the plasterboard itself may be decorated (with a bit of extra preparation), a really smooth, durable surface is generated by applying a final skim of finishing plaster. In regards to fittings, when attaching to a metal Gypframe Jack-Point self drilling, self tapping screws are used, when fixing plasterboard to wood stud or joists, nails or drywall screws are used and when fixing to a brickwork wall "dot and dab" bonding compound is used.

Rendering Rayleigh

Rendering Rayleigh Essex UK

The procedure of applying a mixture of cement, sand, lime and water to both interior and exterior walls to obtain a smooth or textured surface, is referred to as rendering, and it's a very similar technique to plastering. A favoured technique across Southern Europe, rendering is particularly prevalent in the Mediterranean area, notably in Greece, Italy and Spain. Mainly employed for cosmetic purposes a rendered surface has some fire resistant qualities and is waterproof. You can get a longer lasting and more resilient result by colouring the render itself, even though it is of course possible to paint a rendered wall. (Tags: Renderers Rayleigh, Rendering Rayleigh)
