Plastering is the broad term used to describe most of the services we offer. The vast majority of customers require their walls or ceiling Over Skimming with a new coat of plaster to enable them paint straight over it for a smooth crisp finish. If you have a badly cracked, lumpy and unsightly wall, which you are unable to paint because it will show through all the blemishes and marks? We can Unibond (PVA glue)the walls before over skimming, Tape joint or roll scrim over the cracks and re plaster the walls. This makes the walls look as new, and is perfect for painting with no need for the use of lining paper.
Dry lining is the term used for applying plasterboards to your walls with the use of adhesive. This is the perfect way to level up an uneven wall, offering the advantage of a quick drying time in comparison to traditional plastering. Dry lining is also what would be used if you wished to put thermal boards (plasterboard with insulation on them from 22mm to 100mm) on cold walls in your house to increase the amount of heat a room retains. Also sound block plasterboards can be applyed this way to reduce the noise levels from neighbours in terrace houses. once boarded boards can be skimmed or filled and sanded.
