Plastering is a centuries-old building technique to create smooth finishes on walls or other substrates – typically indoors. Centuries ago plaster was made by slaking lime in water, then adding sand, gypsum and fibres. Modern plasters are high-performance products from leading building material companies. However, the principles of good plastering remain unchanged and using skilled, fully-qualified professionals has never been more important. Rendering is equally long-established for attractive protective coating of external walls. Modern renders combine cement, sand, water and lime (or chemical plasticiser) for workability. Some special renders even include colour pigments and silicone.
Whether you’re a South Devon resident, landlord or property developer, you’ll benefit from our long experience with plastering, rendering and screeding for private and commercial properties. Because we offer a full range of building and property maintenance services, you also get a convenient one-stop service for related maintenance works.
Plastering gives a smooth, high-quality internal finish ready for paint or other decoration. Our plastering services embrace internal plastering throughout properties. It could be one room, small plaster repairs for part of a room (maybe after water damage) or a whole house – such as when skim coating plasterboard at first fix. From complete new builds and extensions, to localised repairs or updating interior décor, we’re here to help. Customers love how we take care of all the plastering for their homes as well as commercial properties such as offices, industrial units and hotels. Wherever we work, we do more than just plaster walls. As skilled plasterers, our specialities include ceilings, coving, cornicing, plasterboarding and skimming new plasterboard to create a smooth finish for paint or wallpaper. Maybe you need high-quality ‘invisible’ patching and repair? Done properly it could save you money by avoiding costly reskimming and plastering. How about removing outdated old Artex swirls from ceilings? With skilled application of backing plasters and a silky-smooth skim coat, we’ll take years off rooms and leave surfaces ready for bright new paintwork.
These complement our plastering services, so let’s move outside. It could be anything from a rendered whole-house wrap to pebble dashing gable ends. Or from tiny ‘patch rendering’ repairs to rendering a garden wall. We’re also skilled at roughcasting (aggregate goes in the mix before application) and pebble dashing, where we apply stone to still-wet render. To complement plastering and rendering, we also offer high-quality screeding. This creates level substrates for decorative floor finishes, encases underfloor heating pipes or forms durable finished wearing surfaces.
The final finish of any internal or external surface is only as good as the underlying preparation. Depending on your needs, that usually means plastering, plasterboarding, skimming, rendering or screeding. From experience, quality and attention to detail begins way before we mix plaster or render. It starts with how we price projects thoroughly and clearly. And how we organise work to minimise disruption to you. It’s about how we protect your property inside and out during works and it continues as we clean and clear the site afterwards. Then there’s our guarantee that provides reassurance long after we’ve left site. Anyone can promise this for plastering services. However, a chat with our customers will confirm that we always do what we promise. What’s more, with a hard-earned local reputation to protect, we’ll never cut corners or adopt anything but best plastering practice. For instance, plaster stop beads are the norm on joints and plasterboard edges, followed by meticulous joint taping to give a smooth substrate and avoid cracking. These are just a couple of examples. Ask us to explain the full process and you’ll see why so many South Devon property owners and developers trust us. They also like the value we offer, which brings us to pricing for plastering and rendering.
We’re often asked this, or similar questions such as ‘How much does it cost to plaster a ceiling?’ or ‘What’s the average cost of plastering a three-bed house?’ for Exeter, Torbay or Dartmouth. In truth, every project differs. It’s difficult to accurately price the cost to plaster a room or a whole property without fully understanding what’s involved. We wouldn’t be doing our job properly if we didn’t discuss your needs thoroughly before pricing. Whether for the cost of plastering a bedroom or a new multi-property development, it’s as much about ensuring we don’t unintentionally over-quote as making sure we charge enough.
