The Importance of Plastering

If you are making the most of lockdown and using it to do a bit of home improvement, then you may be in need of the services of a plasterer. The golden rule when it comes to plastering is to get an expert in! A professional plasterer like these Cheltenham plasterers will be able to do a good job – after all the results of the plastering is something that you will have to live with for years to come in your home and uneven poorly plastered walls are not the most attractive thing to live with!

If you have recently had an extension built, then you will want the walls to have a smooth finish – the plastering really is the grand finale of the build, so you don’t want it looking bad at this stage. Plaster in new buildings can be applied straight to the plaster board. Ceilings are usually completed before the walls are and you may see your plasterer sporting some snazzy stilts to be able to reach up to the ceiling! Working wearing those is an art form in itself!

If it is renovation work that you are doing the process may be a little different. It may be that the walls need to be made ready to be plastered before any work can begin on them and it depends on the state that the wall is in as well as what materials that it is made from to how much time this takes.


But there is nothing better than seeing the finished spectacle of a well plastered wall – it is then a perfect blank canvas for you to make your own.
