Kingskerswell Plasterer

The main service that you can anticipate from competent Kingskerswell plasterers is a perfect, polished finish, right from the trowel. Vigorous sanding is not a process that you should ever need to do on a freshly plastered wall or ceiling, just a quick rub down with ultra-fine paper. In actual fact, if any substantial amount of sanding is required, you can surmise that your plasterer wasn't as skilled as you expected. You should check the quality of the plastering thoroughly, if you see electric sanders being employed.

Artex

Artexing Kingskerswell Devon

Even though artex is not as popular in the 21st century as it was in the nineteen seventies and eighties it's still an effective way to enhance the appearance of an uneven or cracked ceiling. While previously you would find many tradesmen who did little else but apply artex and do artex patching, these days it is not quite so simple to track down a plasterer that will tackle artexing. Undoubtedly the large variety of styles and designs was the thing that made it so widely loved, and everybody seemed to have their favourite, be it swirl, criss-cross, stippled, pairs, hook & line, medusa, scroll, bark, broken leather, circle or basket & roses. There was always an artex pattern that was suitable, no matter what your taste. It's obviously still perfectly possible to get any one of these artex ceiling designs done today, you'll simply have to locate a craftsman (a plasterer and not a handyman) ready to tackle it. Having said all that, it ought to be pointed out that artex is quite tricky to patch or repair and it is probably because of this that its popularity declined.

Screeding

Kingskerswell Screeders

Screeding Kingskerswell: Screeding is a procedure through which a new level floor surface is established by using a cement mix. The application of screeding is generally done on top of a previously prepared concrete sub-floor to cover underfloor heating pipes, to receive an appropriate floor finish (such as floor boards, carpet, vinyl or tiles) or to be left as a wearing floor surface. A correctly laid screed can significantly prolong the lifespan of the complete floor and positively affect its durability, quality and finish. Screed is only ever mixed by hand where relatively small areas of flooring are involved.
