Plastering has come a long way in the last few years with more modern methods of application which we try to stay on top of.
Re-skim Existing Plasterwork
Wallpaper that has been removed from walls or ceilings can leave an uneven surface which is not suitable for painting. We can re-skim the existing plasterwork and create a perfectly smooth plastered surface ready for painting.
Dry Lining (Dot and Dab)
For new builds, extensions, or walls which have had existing plaster removed due to damage. Dry lining will prepare a wall for plaster finish and is very fast and cost effective. (Not recommended for damp walls or where damp has been an issue in the past)
Float and Set
This is the traditional method of preparing walls for finishing plaster and usually consists of a two coat sand and cement ruled and devil floated to provide a key.
Partition Walls (Studding)
Partition walls can be either metal or timber constructed in either 600mm centres or 400mm centres. Ideal for old uneven or bowing ceilings and for partitioning and creating new rooms.
Screeding consists of preparing a floor – usually a dry sand and cement mix levelled ruled and smoothed using a plastic float. Large floor areas may require a wet mix which is pumped in.
