Ticehurst Plastering & Rendering Services

Ticehurst Plasterers: When you're engaged in improvements or refurbishments on your property or business in Ticehurst you will invariably have to either get some fresh plaster applied to a new wall surface or some old plaster walls re-skimmed. Most would agree that plastering is a really skillful occupation and even though you may be fairly handy around the house, it's not something that you should attempt yourself, unless you're confident in your capabilities. This is even more crucial if there are ceilings that need skimming, because you'll almost certainly get your property and yourself in a bit of a mess if you endeavour to do it. You'd definately be sensible to bring in a trained plasterer to undertake this sort of work, and while you shouldn't have much difficulty tracking down a plasterer in Ticehurst, uncovering one that has a time slot to fit you in might be somewhat more challenging. Plasterers, as with many tradespeople, tend to be in demand, and so if at all possible aim to book someone in several weeks or months before it needs doing.

A certain degree of plastering work can be created by even the smallest home renovation assignments. It may be things such as plaster skimming dry lining, fitting cornices or coving before decorating, applying some screeding or rendering a bare wall. But of course, any one of a multitude of plastering related jobs might be necessary.

Plasterers Ticehurst East Sussex

Ask prospective Ticehurst plasterers if they have a portfolio of proficiently accomplished jobs, the most critical thing is to hire plasterers who know precisely what they're doing. You should avoid hiring "cowboys" for this type of work, at all costs. Substandard plastering can cause significant problems as work progresses, and it might not even be visible until you start decorating.

You'll soon become aware of any imperfections once a coat of emulsion has been applied to newly plastered wall. Such flaws will be even more emphasized when viewed in bright sunshine. By using experienced plasterers in Ticehurst, you should hopefully avoid issues like this.

Being simply a base onto which additional materials are applied, means that plastering must be smooth and level above everything else.

Plasterer in Ticehurst

The most skillful Ticehurst plasterers have their reputations to keep up and will always seek to get the perfect finish right from the trowel, wherever possible. Any specialist plasterer will tell you that a correctly plastered wall or ceiling shouldn't ever need sanding down to get a good finish. If any degree of vigorous sanding is needed to level out the plastered surfaces, they were not correctly done to begin with. If the use of electric sanders is becomes a regular thing, there's definately something is amiss with your plasterer.

Ticehurst Plastering and Coving

In recent times, one of the most common tasks a plasterer is requested to do, is cover up an artexed ceiling. Artex was at its height of popularity in Ticehurst during the 1970's and 80's, but currently it is out of fashion. So as to get your ceilings looking fresh and modern once more, your Ticehurst plasterer will jump at the chance to cover them up with a smooth new finish. On the reverse side, if you'd like to bring back that 1970's style, most plasterers will just as gladly slap some artex onto your smooth ceilings.

DIY Plastering Ticehurst: Although when you've got plastering work which has to be undertaken in your property in Ticehurst, it is preferable to employ an experienced plasterer to handle it, it's still quite possible to have a shot yourself, if you have self-belief and are good at DIY. Practicing on a spare bedroom or an out of sight area is definitely a good idea when you're beginning your first plastering journey. When possible try to practice on a wall that's already got a poorly plastered finish, so that your amateur efforts can hardly make it much worse. This is likely to be much less stressful for you, and allow you to spend a bit of time trying out your newly found skills. You'll very likely make rather a mess on the first couple of attempts, but it's possible to skim a wall as many times as you want.

Artex Ticehurst

Artexing Ticehurst East Sussex

Artexing Ticehurst: Especially popular in the 70's and 80's, artex has long been an excellent way to add a decorative finish to a plastered ceiling, as well as to cover up cracks and uneven surfaces. Whilst previously you would find an abundance of tradesmen who did little else but artex and artex repairs, currently it is not quite so simple to obtain a plasterer that will undertake artexing. The thing that boosted its popularity was probably the large range of designs that it was fashioned in, and it appeared that everybody had their favourite style, perhaps it might have been swirl, broken leather, pairs, basket & flowers, circle, bark, scroll, medusa, stipple, criss-cross or hook & line. Patterns of artex were available to suit any preference or taste. You can obviously still get any of these artex styles today, simply find a local Ticehurst plasterer who frequently carries out this type of work, and not one which will simply "give it a go", in this way you can ensure you will get a proper job made of it. Remember, however, that artex is not the easiest thing to patch or repair, which is one of the reasons why it's attraction diminished to begin with.

Pebble Dash

Pebble Dashing Ticehurst

Pebble Dashing Ticehurst: Pebbledashing (sometimes called roughcast) has been used for many years to decorate and protect the outside walls of properties. However it's not to everyone's taste. There are pebbledashing specialists out there, but usually Ticehurst plasterers will be willing to do this type of work for you.

Pebble dashing usually consists of two layers of a base made from sand and lime into which small pebbles or gravel are firmly pressed to give both new and renovated structures an attractive, tough and maintenance free finish.

Plasterboarding (Dry Lining)

Plasterboarding Ticehurst (Dry Lining)

There are a number of home refurbishment projects that will require dry lining to be carried out, and a few Ticehurst plasterers will be willing to carry this out for you. An approach that creates a stable wall surface that does not need to be plastered, plasterboard is attached to Gypframe metal framing, a wood studding or joist or a brickwork surface. Whilst you could decorate the plasterboard surface itself after a bit of filling, usually most people opt to have the plasterboard skimmed with a fine plaster coat afterwards to give it an extra smooth finish. In terms of fittings, when attaching to a metal framework self-drilling, self tapping (Jack-Point screws) are used, when attaching to a brickwork wall the "dot and dab" method is used and when attaching plasterboard to wooden stud or joists, drywall screws or nails are used.

Plaster Re-Skimming

Plaster Skimming Ticehurst East Sussex

Re-skimming or skimming is a thin coating of plaster trowelled over the top of damaged plasterwork, artex or plasterboard. Out of all the jobs that plasterers are asked to carry out, this is among the most common. Plenty of home refurbishments call for new dry lined walls or cause damage to existing plasterwork surfaces. These imperfect surfaces can easily be transformed into smooth, glass-like finishes by a professional who is skilled in this art. Before you can decorate on top of it, you must leave it to dry thoroughly for several days. You should finish up with a wonderfully fault-free and flat surface which will endure for years.(Tags: Plaster Skimming Ticehurst, Skimming Ticehurst, Re-Skimming Ticehurst)

Screeders Ticehurst

Screeding in Ticehurst UK

Screeding Ticehurst: Screeding calls for the application of a cement mix, to make a smooth, level floor surface. The pouring of screed is typically carried out over a concrete sub-floor to encase underfloor heating pipes, to take on the final floor finish or to be used as a finished hardwearing floor surface. An effectively laid screed can help to prolong the lifespan of a floor and establish its finish, durability and quality. The mixing of screed by hand must only be used where smaller areas are involved, in all other instances a screed pump should be used to quickly guarantee an even, smooth mixture of cement and sand and to transport (pump) this perfect mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such. Among the various available sorts of screed are: structural screed, fast drying screed, free-flowing screed, traditional screed, unbonded screed, floor levelling compound and bonded screed.
