Skimming 

When stripping wall paper, replacing wall tiles during redecorating people find the walls or ceiling behind are often cracked, damaged, feature loose plaster, are damp or uneven etc, Having a re-skim done in your property will ensure that this is smooth and ready for decorating or tiling,

Skimming over Artex

This is the best method for getting rid of Artex or other textured surfaces, without replacing the ceiling. It is basically the same as a re-skim, but takes more preparation and may also need a coat of Bonding plaster to level the surface before skimming.

Rendering

Rendering is sand and cement mortar. The mortar is applied to the external walls both on the inside and outside of your property in two separate coats. The first is a base coat that is applied to the brickwork to level out the wall. The second coat is applied a minimum of 24 hours later and is worked to a smooth finish.

Coving

We can supply and fit a range of decorative gyproc cove and cornice to frame and enhance your wall and ceiling lines. 

Patching & Repairs

Small damaged areas can be repaired and patched into existing plaster to avoid replastering whole walls or ceilings

Water Damage

Damp ceilings are a common occurrence in property where water has penetrated the ceiling from above. This can result from a leaking plumbing e.g. radiators or bathroom or shower which is not completely water tight.

With ceilings the size of damp patches determines how much of the ceiling needs replacing before a Re-skim. If the area is a small the section, it can be cut away from the rest of the ceiling and be replaced with plasterboard before a Re-skim. However, in some cases where the damp patch is a larger area, it is better to replace the whole ceiling to ensure damp does come through to the new plastered ceiling.

Insurance Work

There is always a leak from the upstairs neighbour, or from a failed heating pipe. We take care of it all – from protecting the floors, kitchen or whatever space we’re working in, to removing damage and the rubbish, checking cabling and joists for any damage, to re-plastering,  We always provide an all inclusive written quote emailed, so you can forward to your insurer.

Float & Set

Preferred by masonry lovers, either sand and cement renders or gypsum backing plaster are trowelled directly onto brick or block work.  Both are finished off with a tight coat of finishing plaster that can be decorated. 

Refurbishments

We excel on old property refurbishments, using the best building products
