About plastering

Plastering and Skimming
This is the application of a finishing plaster known in the trade as a ‘two coat skim’ over walls and ceilings. The result is a smooth surface which is ready to painting or papering.

This is the application of a sand and cement mix to exposed brickwork which offers a good impermeable surface. Internally, outward facing walls are rendered, internal facing walls are bonded. Rendering a wall consists of the application of two layers, firstly the scratch coat which offers the second layer a flat and even surface. The second coat is rubbed down to complete a quality finished surface.

Tanking and Waterproof Render
Tanking is the application of a continuous water resistant barrier coating on the inside of an existing building or applied to the external surfaces of a property to prevent water ingression. Drylining
This term relates to the securing of plasterboards over stud walls, brickwork and ceilings using screws on timber or adhesive on masonry. Once the area is drylined, next it needs to be skimmed. Dry lining uses plasterboard fixed to the walls and is a dry process, which can be decorated shortly after completion. Dry lining can be taped and jointed using special paper tape or it can be skim coated.

Screeding is levelling and smoothing the top layer of a material that is poured, such as concrete, so the material is the same height as the forms, or guides, that surround it. While screeding concrete is a common example used in gardening and home improvement.

Artex is applied to ceilings and walls to produce a durable, long lasting and artistic finish. On cracked or uneven ceilings artex can be used to mask defects giving an old ceiling an almost new look.
