Professional plastering services
I offer a range of services. I always try my best to create minimum disturbance to you and your home when work is being carried out. All carpets, flooring, and furniture will be protected and your property will be left clean and tidy.
Skimming to plasterboard and other surfaces is a popular method of providing a smooth, seamless finish ready for decoration.
I can supply and fit gyproc coving or decorative plaster coving to enhance your wall and ceiling lines.
Dot and Dab
Directly bond plasterboards to a solid wall. Once set, skim to a smooth finish.
Patching and repairs
Small damaged areas can sometimes be patched into exciting plasterwork.
Skimming over artex
This involves lightly scraping back any high spots to the textured surface applying a sealing agent. Once dry, apply two coats of finishing plaster to a smooth finish. Sometimes it may be necessary to leave the first coat for 24-hours before the second coat is applied.
Float and Set
Preferred by masonry lovers, either sand and cement, a pre-blended render or gypsum backing plaster applied directly to brick or block work. Finished with a top coat plaster to a smooth finish ready for decoration.
Ceiling Replacement or repair
Removing old ceilings can be a messy job. I will advise you on removal of the ceiling or whether over-boarding is an option. Old ceilings will be bagged up ready for disposal, joists de-nailed and new plasterboard screwed in place ready for plastering.
Stud wall/insulation plasterboard
Secure plasterboard to timber stud wall. I can advise on the correct plasterboard. Different plasterboards are used to comply with building regulations and different fixing methods are used as well (ie. moisture/fire/sound/insulation/damp problems etc.)
I have extensive experience of penetrating and rising damp problems and can advise on rectifying the problem using lime plasterers and specialist products.
