All types of internal wall plastering / plaster skimming.
Plaster Skimming Walls
This is probably the most common method of all where the walls are given a skim coat of multi finish over the complete area of the wall. This is a great way to get fresh new looking walls without a huge expense. What you must remember though this is only a thin coat of plaster to give rough walls a new appearance again. This method will not make uneven walls flat again or cure any damp issues you may have. Also if the base coat of plaster is a bit lose you can sometimes get hairline cracks appear. However, this is preventable as long as any visible cracks are covered with a scrim tape before the skim coat.
Float & Sett
When walls are taken back to the brickwork a base coat is required. There is a massive range of lightweight plasters on today’s market which are mixed with drills & all have their own purposes which are great if used on the right background. Generally, you should use a sand & cement mix with an added waterproofer on any external walls. As these walls often have damp issues. On new block work a lightweight plaster called hardwall is ideal for the high suction levels that blocks have & any low suction backgrounds or where adhesion may be a problem a bonding plaster is recommended.
“What People Say”
Originally started off with just the lounge / dining room but with the high standard of finish & competitive pricing, we eventually had Wrighte Plastering skim the whole house. Would recommend to anyone.
Jason clearly knows his industry, he clearly advised us on what plasters to use in certain areas to achieve longitevity & he knew how to apply them as well. Clean, reliable worker with an excellent finish.
