Even small home remodeling projects may require some plastering work to be carried out. It might be the likes of plastering over artex, plaster repair to get ready for tiling, plaster skimming some dry lining or fitting coving or mouldings before decorating. In fact, it may possibly be any one of a multitude of plastering related jobs.

Wedmore Plasterers

Ask prospective Wedmore plasterers if they've got a portfolio of recently completed jobs, the most critical factor is to hire a plasterer who knows what they're doing. You definitely don't want to be employing a "cowboy" for this type of work. Even poor quality plastering can sometimes look tolerable at first, but down the line, the complications begin.

It's easy to notice any defects once a coat of emulsion has gone on the freshly plastered wall. When viewed in bright daylight, even more imperfections will show up on any uneven surfaces. To avoid problems like this, choose only from experienced plasterers in Wedmore.

You must never forget that the plastering is a base upon which other materials are applied, so it should be flat and smooth. It is fairly easy to fill and repair any minor cracking and imperfections, but it is tricky to disguise fundamentally uneven plaster. Problems with any area of tiling (bathrooms or kitchens), fitting skirting boards, the fitting of kitchen units and the painting of ceilings and walls, can be caused by a poorly plastered area.

Plasterer Wedmore

With plastering it is preferable to get a polished finish, directly from the trowel, and this is what you can usually anticipate from the busiest Wedmore plasterers. Sanding isn't something that you should ever have to do with a freshly plastered wall or ceiling, only a quick rub down with ultra-fine glasspaper. You may reasonably expect some spots that need a little work with sandpaper, but not to any significant extent. If you hear the loud buzz of electric sanding machines, you need to do a comprehensive quality assessment.

Plastering and Coving Wedmore

One of the most regular tasks for plasterers nowadays, is plastering over old artexed ceilings. Currently somewhat out of favour in Wedmore, artex was the most fashionable decorative finish for ceilings during the 1970's and 1980's. To get all your dated artex ceilings looking fresh and contemporary again, most Wedmore plasterers will be happy to plaster over them. Most plasterers will also be glad to put on a coat of artex if you would like to bring back that old style for your ceilings.

Do-it-Yourself Plastering Wedmore: While it's always much better to use an experienced plasterer in Wedmore when you have plastering work that needs to be carried out in your home, it is quite possible to have a crack at plastering yourself if you're reasonably good at do-it-yourself, and have the confidence to tackle it. Doing a test run on a spare bedroom or an out of sight area is definitely a wise idea when you're starting your first plastering journey. If possible try to practice on an area that already has a poorly plastered finish, so that your efforts cannot make it any worse. This should enable you to relax and get comfortable with the required techniques and should be much less stressful. It is possible to re-plaster a wall as many times as you want within reason, and you can very easily have another go if you don't do an acceptable job the first time around.

DIY Plastering Wedmore UK

You will be able to get some excellent plastering tips by viewing You Tube tutorials on the web if you do not want to go to the extreme of signing up for a plastering course. The problem is that some of those videos can frequently make it look easy, and plastering is far from that. Plastering is a "hands on" undertaking and the more you practice the more adroit you get. Through experimentation you could even think up you own techniques for getting a flawless plastered finish. But if in doubt, follow the tried and tested procedures. Confidence is the most crucial factor with plastering, and the more you do it, the more confident you're likely to become. Once you have perfected the art to a level you're happy with, you'll be able to move on to plastering the main walls of your home. You've still got the option of calling in an experienced Wedmore plasterer if you mess it up.

Screeding Wedmore

Screeder Wedmore

Screeding Wedmore: A number of plasterers in Wedmore, Somerset will also provide a floor screeding service, by which a smooth, level floor surface is created by the use of a sand and cement mix. Screeding is normally put on top of a concrete sub-floor to cover underfloor heating pipes, to be left as a wearing floor surface or to take on the final floor finish. This will considerably extend the lifespan of the complete floor and establish its quality, durability and finish, for many years. A proper screed pump should be used to rapidly ensure an even, smooth blend of cement, sand and water and to pump this perfect mix directly to its exact location, avoiding the need for paraphernalia like wheelbarrows and such. The mixing of screed by hand must only be used where small areas are involved. Among the various kinds of floor screeding are: fast drying screed, structural screed, free-flowing screed, traditional screed, bonded screed, unbonded screed and floor levelling compound.

Rendering

Wedmore Renderers

Rendering Wedmore: Rendering is the procedure whereby a mix of sand, cement, lime and water is applied to walls (both interior and exterior), in order to achieve a smooth or textured surface finish, using a technique that's pretty similar to plastering. Rendering is very popular across Europe and is especially widespread in the Mediterranean region. A rendered surface is water resistant and has some fire resisting properties, although it's predominately employed for aesthetic purposes. There are two ways that a rendered wall can be coloured, either you can apply paint as soon as it is dried out, or colours can be added to the render itself, producing a surface which is much more resilient and long lasting.

Polished Plastering Wedmore

Polished Plaster Wedmore

Polished Plaster Wedmore: Polished plaster is essentially the definition applied to modern variations of traditional Italian plasterered finishes that have been used to great effect for many centuries. The term covers an entire choice of decorative plaster finishes - from the very highly polished Marmorino, Lucidato and Venetian plaster to the rugged looking textured polished plasters. Used predominantly on internal walls and ceilings, polished plaster is supposed to deliver a surface finish that looks like polished marble, limestone or travertine. Polished plaster is sleek and smooth to the touch but offers natural variations of shade and a distinct feeling of depth. Exclusive custom finishes can be achieved by combining these various types of plasters. Polished plaster can be coloured or tinted by means of artificial or natural colourants. The capability to add a tint to Venetian plaster is especially helpful when a specific "marbled" style is required, or when a colour that doesn't exist in nature is the aim.

Exactly What is Plaster?

Plaster Wedmore

What is Plaster? - A frequently used building material that's employed for decorating and protecting ceiling and wall surfaces, plaster has been around for many centuries. What we call "plaster" in Wedmore is generally understood to be the material that's used for covering the internal rooms of buildings and houses, whilst that which is used externally is known as "render" or "rendering". Plaster blends typically contain either gypsum, lime, or cement, all of which work in relatively similar ways. A dry, fine powder at the time of manufacture, when needed plaster is combined with water to create a stiff but easily workable paste. The merging of the plaster and water causes a reaction, and heat is produced by means of crystallization, making the paste go hard.

Artex Wedmore

Artexing Wedmore Somerset

Artexing Wedmore: While most popular in the 1970's and 1980's artex continues to be an excellent way to enhance the look of ceilings, particularly shabby or cracked ones. Whilst in the good old days you would find lots of tradespeople who did very little else but artex and artex patching, currently it isn't quite as easy to obtain a plasterer that will deal with artexing. The thing that helped its attractiveness was the big selection of designs it was fashioned in, and it seemed that everyone had their favourite, possibly it was medusa, pairs, circle, hook & line, swirl, broken leather, stipple, criss-cross, basket & roses, bark or scroll. There was always an artex pattern that was suitable, irrespective of your personal taste. You can obviously still get any of these styles these days, simply look for a local Wedmore plasterer who continually does this kind of work, and not one which will simply "give it a try", by doing this you should make sure you will get a proper job made of it. Bear in mind, however, that artex is not the easiest stuff to repair or patch up, which is a primary reason why it's appeal waned in the first place.
