Following that the wall can is plastered over for a smooth finish ready to be decorated. For wall repairs, our experienced team can pop round to assess the type of damage to offer the right solution.
Skim is another name for plaster. So we do 2 coats of skim/ plaster. When we plaster over existing wall surfaces we apply PVA and “over-skim” with multi-finish plaster. Our professional skimming provides a smooth finish surface ready for decorating. We also skim over existing Artex ceilings. Please contact us for quotations and availability.
Plastering over Artex
Over the years, Artex has become less and less popular. Removing unwanted Artex can be laborious and time consuming. At B&D; Plastering, we aim to make the process a breeze and breathe new life to your ceilings. We can bond over the Artex and apply a layer of smooth plaster for a smooth contemporary finish ready for decorating.
Ceiling repair & plastering
Ceilings can have a big impact on the whole room. At B&D; Plastering, we can handle all types of ceiling repairs. Ceiling repairs can sometimes be achieved by applying a coat of bonding and then plastered over or when necessary repairs can be corrected by boarding over. Other ceilings may need to be repaired by having a section cut out and replaced, or totally removed and replaced with plasterboard.
Plaster boarding is the process of lining a wall or surface prior to decorating. Available in various thickness, types and size, Plasterboard is an extremely versatile material for internal layouts.
Plaster Boarding ceilings is used when a ceiling is damaged and perhaps needs boarding over. Plaster boarding can also be used if a ceiling needs taking down and replacing with plaster board and then plastered over. Plaster boarding can also be used for stud walls.
Some advantages of Plasterboard:
- Much lighter and faster than brickwork
- Faster installation time than traditional plastering techniques
- Less drying time
- Puts less loads on floors and foundations
Rendering will improve the weatherproofing and appearance of your walls. Rendering is the application of a premixed layer of sand and cement to brick, cement or stone. It is generally used on exterior walls but can be used to feature an interior wall. It is also used for damp problems when mixed with a water proofer.
Bonding is used during building and renovation projects and repairs to walls. Bonding is often used on ceilings as an undercoat to straighten out bumps.
Similar to bonding except hardwall offers a quicker drying surface and higher impact resistance. Hardwall is an excellent solution for damamged areas around the house to prepare ready for plastering.
