Plastering Services that we cover

Wet Plastering

Homes in Britain are generally treated to a wet plastered finish by covering the surface to be plastered in mortar and smoothened with trowels to produce a clean finish. The dried wet plastered surface cis then papered or painted according to preference and is an ideal way of making damaged walls like new.

Dry Lining & Skim Coating

Dry plastering techniques are very popular due to ease of use, speed of drying times and the flexibility it allows in design. Dry plastering is a method of fixing sheets of plaster board to a wall and can be stuck to a wide range of surfaces making straightening out very uneven walls simple. Typically dry lined walls would be surface skimmed to get a wet plastered finish for decoration.

External Plaster

There are a variety of external plaster techniques - also known as Stucco which we can deliver . When planning the type of external plaster to be used, it's important to keep in mind the wear and tear and weather damages that may occur to make the right choice which we can help you with.

Rough Cast

Rough cast / Tyrolean is applied after creating a smooth finish render and is applied by flicking a sand and cement slurry at the wall. The final finish can vary from a fine (for straight walls) to a heavy texture (usually older buildings).

Spar & Pebble Dash Finishes

Pebble dashing / Sparring provides a strong and maintenance free external render. Once a scratch coat has been applied a top coat of sand and cement can be put on top and while still soft small stones are thrown evenly at the wall thus making them stick. The stones (spar) come in many different colours and can also be used with different colour cements.";

Float Cast Rendering

To achieve a smooth external render we need to apply a sand and cement scratch coat. The top coat is flattened and when ready will be floated down to create a smooth render. When render is dry it will then be ready to paint.";
