How Can we help?
Having your walls plastered is one of those lovely jobs that finishes off all the hard work that has gone on beforehand.
Of course, it is also a really messy job so it pays to either clear the area to be plastered of all furnishings, or at the very least cover it all up properly.
You will also need to think about where we are going to get water from and ensure their route from a water source to the room they are working in is protected.

Traditional Plastering, also known as float and set refers to the process of applying a undercoat plaster basecoat to the background surface before applying a complete skin of finishing plaster or skim coat. As a minimum this is a two stage process which in general can take longer than the directly bonding the plasterboards to the wall (drylining or dot and dab methods) as the base coat must dry to certain level before the finish coat can be applied.
There are different undercoats plasters, which can be used depending on the background and suction, some of the basecoat products are Browning Coat, Bonding Coat, Hardwall & sand and cement to name a few.
Undercoat plaster is usually 10mm to 13mm thick. Sometimes due to the thickness needed in the basecoat when combined with the environmental conditions of the individual site, It may be required to allow the base to try out over night before the skim or finish coat can be applied. The skim or finish coat is usually applied to a thickness of 2mm to 2mm. Once this finish coat is fully dried it is then ready to be painted.
