Quotations for Plastering in Hodnet

Most home restoration tasks will require some plastering work to be carried out, even modest jobs. It might be stuff like installing mouldings or coving before decorating, skimming some dry lining, latex screeding or rendering a bare wall. Don't however imagine that the above are the only plastering, screeding and rendering jobs that might be necessary, since there are certainly many more possibilities.

Plasterers in Hodnet

Before any work commences you need to check out potential Hodnet plasterers to see if they really know their stuff. Ask if you can examine some photographs or a portfolio of finished work. For this kind of work, you want to avoid using "cowboys", without exceptions. Shoddy plastering is generally worse than no plastering at all, because it is extremely difficult to put right later.

Any defects will become blindingly obvious once some emulsion starts going on to your newly plastered walls and ceilings. They will probably look even worse with the sun shining on them. It should usually be possible to locate experienced plasterers in Hodnet, so why pick an inferior one?

Because plaster is usually concealed with other materials you can easily forget how crucial it is that it's flat and smooth. Minor cracks and dents can easily be repaired with filler afterwards with few issues, but uneven surfaces are difficult to disguise. Hassles with the painting and decorating of the surfaces, kitchen or bathroom tiling, the fitting of architraves and the installation of kitchen units, can result from an unevenly plastered surface.

A perfect, polished finish, right from the trowel is what you should expect from the most experienced Hodnet plasterers. You should be able to recognise when plastering has been done by an expert, since a brief rub down is all that's needed and no heavy sanding is necessary. If the plastering has not been done competently, forceful sanding may be required, and calls the plasterers ability into question. If electric sanders are being used you should check out the quality of the work thoroughly.

Hodnet Plastering and Coving

Plasterers perform many tasks but one of the most commonplace these days, is plastering over old artex ceilings. Currently out of favour in Hodnet, artex was the most popular decorative finish for ceilings during the nineteen seventies and eighties. To give your ceilings that sleek and modern look once again, most plasterers in Hodnet will be happy to cover them with plaster. Plastering over artex is preferable to removing it as it is quite hard to get off or repair, which is doubtless why its popularity has waned.

DIY Plastering Hodnet: While it is usually much better to bring in a reputable plasterer in Hodnet when you've got plastering work that needs to be undertaken in your home or business premises, it is quite possible to have a bash at plastering yourself if you're really good at do-it-yourself, and have the self-confidence to tackle it. As an unskilled plasterer it is a wise idea to commence your plastering journey by perhaps practicing on a spare bedroom or an out of sight area, especially one that's already got a poor plastered finish and that can only be improved by your efforts. This will enable you to test out your newly acquired skills and should be a lot less stressful than taking on a wall that everyone will regularly see. It's quite possible to re-plaster a wall surface as many times as you like within reason, and you can quite easily have another crack if you do not do an adequate job the first time around.

Polished Plaster Hodnet

Polished Plaster Hodnet

Polished plaster is a common name for the surface finish of certain plasters and for the description of updated sorts of classic Italian plasterered finishes. The expression covers a large collection of ornamental plaster finishes - from the extremely highly polished Venetian plaster, Lucidato and Marmorino to the textured polished plasters. Providing a surface finish that looks very like limestone, travertine or marble, polished plaster is normally used on inside ceilings and walls. Polished plaster delivers a feeling of depth using natural variations in shade whilst remaining smooth when touched. Special customized finishes can be achieved by mixing these different kinds of plasters. Polished plaster can be tinted or coloured by means of natural or synthetic colourants. The possibility to tint Venetian plaster is especially useful when a certain "marbled" design is required, or when a colour that doesn't exist in nature is needed.

Plasterboarding Hodnet (Dry Lining)

Plasterboarding (Dry Lining) Hodnet

There are several home renovation assignments that will need dry lining (plasterboarding) to be done, and several Hodnet plasterers should be able to do this for you. A process that produces a surface which doesn't need to be plastered, dry lining is fixed to Gypframe metal framing, a brick or masonry surface or a wooden studding. Although in a lot of cases the plasterboard itself may be decorated (with a little preparation), an extremely smooth, durable surface is generated by applying a final skim of finishing plaster. As for fittings, when attaching plasterboard to timber joists or studding, nails or drywall screws are used, when fixing to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when attaching to a metal Gypframe self-tapping (or Jack-Point screws) are used.

Artex

Artexing Hodnet Shropshire

Artexing Hodnet: Particularly popular in the nineteen seventies and eighties, artex has long been a good way to add a decorative finish to a plastered ceiling, and also to cover up cracks and uneven surfaces. Whilst at one time you could find a lot of tradesmen who did very little else but artexing and artex patching, these days it's not quite as straightforward to locate a plasterer that will do artexing. What helped its popularity was probably the a wide variety of designs and styles it could be fashioned in, and it seemed to be the case that everyone had their preferred style, possibly it might have been bark, medusa, basket & flowers, pairs, swirl, criss-cross, circle, hook & line, scroll, stippled or broken leather. No matter what your taste, there was a style of artex to match. It is of course still quite possible to get any of these artex ceiling patterns carried out today, you will simply have to locate a tradesman (a plasterer rather than a handyman) willing to do it. Keep in mind, however, that artex is not the easiest thing to repair or patch up, which is one of the reasons why it's popularity waned in the first place.
