Plasterer Clapham Common SW4
We offer a full plastering service for private homes, rental investments and business premises. We offer expert advice on colour schemes, paint finishes and problem areas such as condensation, durability and aesthetics.
Damaged areas of old lath and plaster (period properties) can be cut back, sheeted in plasterboard and plastered to the same level as the existing area. Areas of damaged plasterboard in most modern properties can be cut back, replaced in plasterboard and Ames Taped. We take great pride in the fact that our repairs disappear once they are painted. Most new builds are Ames Taped which provides a quicker and less expensive process. Ames taping yields beautiful results, and is especially useful for example in attic conversions where there are lots of angles.
Plastering over Artex
Artex was very popular in the 70’s and 80’s. Back then, it’s main purpose was to inexpensively cover a multitude of sins. Most people now loath it’s look. Unfortunately Artex can contain asbestos which is why we don’t advocate for its removal (see the HSE website for guidelines). The good news is that we can safely plaster over existing Artex surfaces. This is normally a two coat process to create a perfectly smooth and paintable finish. You’ll be delighted with the transformation.
We use a two part process to level uneven walls, prior to an application of finished plaster or tiling. This is a an important consideration when fitting a new kitchen or bathroom, as a level wall can make or break a good job.
Plasterboard is a modern and versatile material designed for creating walls and ceilings, either as a background for plastering or tiling. Plasterboard can also be used as a finished surface for painting after the structure has been Ames Taped. Plasterboard is an invaluable product when making repairs to lath and plaster walls.
Dot and Dab Method
This is a process of sheeting walls in plasterboard quickly with plasterboard and an adhesive compound. This is a useful method as it eliminates the need for wooden framework and allows for perfect leveling whilst the adhesive is setting.
