Our plastering work
The techniques we use will get the perfect look for your property. If you plan on painting, we can ensure the wall is coarse enough to hold the paint but still has a smooth look. However, it is possible for plaster to have a host of finishes. To know which ones suit your taste the most, you need to know what they are. Examples of plastering include:
- Scraped finish: To achieve this, the plasterer will scrape the upper coat using a steel blade once it starts to dry.
- Smooth cast: For this, mortar needs to ideally be in the ratio of 1:3. Generally the plasterer will use fine sand as well.
- Pebbledash: Here, the mortar ratio is 1:3 again, and the plasterer will paste pebbles of sizes between 10mm and 20mm on the upper surface.
- Roughcast: With this coarse aggregate is added to the mortar to give it more texture. This is preferable for exterior walls.
- Sand faced: This involves two coats of plaster. For the initial coat, the mortar ratio is 1:4. With the second, it is 1:1. Last but not least, a layer of sand adds to the upper coat.
The benefits of plastering
Now that you know about the different finishes, you should know what the advantages of plastering are. One of the main benefits would be the decorative appeal. When you have your ceiling and wall plastered, there are a myriad of options available to you to augment the decor by introducing all kinds of finishes.
Durability is another benefit. When you compare to dry walls, plaster ones are considerably more durable. As a result they have greater longevity. If there is ever any damage to your surfaces, it is usually easy to repair them.
