Professional Plasterer In London
Plastering is a fundamental part of any construction project, providing a seamless finish that guarantees a great foundation for the application of wallpaper, painting or any other decorative element. While the aesthetic value of plastering cannot be overstated, it also offers practical benefits by providing a crucial damp-proof layer over brickwork that helps prevent moisture accumulation and damage.
However, when it comes to creating a perfectly smooth and polished wall, there’s no substitute for the skills of a professional plasterer. Whether you plan to wallpaper or paint your space, the results are always better when the underlying plaster is flawlessly applied and maintained. At the same time, it’s important to remember that plaster is a natural material prone to cracking and blowing over time. That’s why hiring an experienced plastering rendering and skimming professional is essential for ensuring the longevity and durability of your walls. With our expertise, you can have complete peace of mind knowing that your home will look stunning for years.
If you suspect a wall may have suffered some damage, it’s best to inspect it thoroughly before undertaking any decorating work. An easy test is to gently tap the wall with your knuckle; if you detect a hollow, spongy or springy sound, it’s a tell-tale sign that some sections of plaster may have ‘blown’. The majority of plastering projects are best left to the professionals in London.
Have you ever watched a professional plaster and thought, ‘I can do that; it looks so easy?’
Well, that’s your first mistake, because easy it is not, that’s for sure!
Holding a ‘hawk’ loaded with wet plaster in one hand whilst skimming the wall with the other can be tiring, plus the smoothness of the finish is the key to professional plastering, especially if you’re wallpapering or painting over the plastered area.
A lumpy or uneven finish will show through the wallpaper, so it’s best not to wallpaper over the cracks (so to speak). If you need help with your plastering project, just make sure you choose a skilled tradesperson.
