What do plasterer services include?

Your plasterer services include all the activities necessary to apply plaster on your walls and ceilings, apply different types of plaster, and repair existing plaster. Your hired plasterer can do the necessary planning and preparation before application. Plasterers can recommend different options for the task, advise the most suitable plastering materials, and use the appropriate materials, all while following the manufacturer’s recommendations, building codes, and the best practices in the construction industry. The plasterer service can involve different jobs, such as: 

Ceiling Plastering

A plasterer can seal each portion between plasterboards with fibre tape or a similar protective material. They can mix the plaster to the right consistency, apply it to the ceiling and ensure complete and consistent coverage. Your Tasker can ensure the application complies with the manufacturer’s instructions, industry best practices, and any appropriate regulations. 

Wall Plastering

Plasterers can prepare the site by placing a protective covering on the floor, furniture, light switches, and electrical sockets. You may hire someone to do the wiring before plastering or switch off the power before your Tasker starts work. Your wall plasterer can use the appropriate tools and techniques for wall plastering, and follow the instructions for drying and reapplying plaster coats until the job is finished. 

Plaster Repair

Plasterers can inspect the site to assess the extent of damage to the structure. You may need to hire someone to inspect and repair areas close to or supporting the plaster before your plasterer starts work. You can also ask someone to check if the damage is due to leaky or busted pipes and fix those first. Your plasterer can prepare the appropriate amount of plaster for the repairs and do what is necessary to mimic the existing plaster. After repairs are complete, you may want to hire someone to apply fresh paint to the restored plaster and return it to its former glory.

Plaster Coving

As for plaster coving, a plasterer can inspect and prepare the site before working on the coving. Some Taskers can move or cover the furniture in the room, but note that you may have to hire a separate service to clear the space. Your Tasker can measure and cut the coving to fit, install it onto the ceiling with adhesives and secure the coving as the adhesive sets.

Polished Plaster

To apply polished plaster, a plasterer can prepare the walls by cleaning and smoothing them with a sander. Following the manufacturer’s instructions and industry best practices, they can apply as many coats of polished plaster as needed, sanding or applying glaze between coats. They can apply a water-based sealant to finish the job. 

Lime Plastering

Plasterers can prepare the site and mix lime plastering material of the right consistency. They can apply the lime plaster in the appropriate number of layers, scoring and smoothing each layer as needed and allowing the layers to dry between applications.

We’ve had some windows replaced - 1 casement window (125x180cm) and two bays (260x180cm & 330x210cm). Previously, there was plastic trim disguising the join from the windows to the walls. We have instead left these exposed and want for someone to build out corners with plasterboard and skim finish round the top and sides of each set. With the larger bay, we want to build out a couple of layers of plasterboard and finish to create the look of columns in the corners and between the front facing windows (happy to provide photos). We have also removed some loose plasterboard round the bottom of the larger bay, which needs replacing. Additionally, 2 small walls in the same room need re-skimming. - Due date: Before Tuesday, 31 May 2022
