Solid Plastering


Plaster skimming is the standard method of providing a smooth, seamless surface finish in preperation for walls and ceilings to receive decorative paint or wallpaper covering.

Plaster can be applied to walls or ceilings, on backgrounds such as artex, existing plaster, plasterboard and standard backing coat

Float and Set

Float and set is the application of a backing coat of a product such as bonding or browning, before applying the finish coat when set.

This method is commonly used in renovation work, on surfaces which are not suitable to receive a finish coat alone.

Boarding / Dot & Dab

Dot and dab is a popular method to quickly provide a good background surface before the application of finish to walls.

Boarding is predominantly used for ceilings or stud walls.

Finishes include, coloured render, brick effect, brick slips, dashing.

Through Coloured Render

Coloured render is commonly refered to as scratch render or monocuche. It is a modern, maintenance free way of updating any property.

It is popular on both commercial and residential property due to its waterproof, breathable, long lasting qualities.

Damp Proofing

Chemical Injection

This is the removal off all damp internal plaster usually to 1.2 meters in height (can be higher dependent on circumstances), followed by the injection of a chemical damp proof course in the brickwork, to eliminate the threat of rising damp.

On completion of the chemical injection the wall can then be rendered and skimmed internally.

Waterproof Membrane

The installation of a waterproof membrane, has been shown to be the most reliable way to damp proof a property. Damp proof membranes can be applied with little or no surface preparation, internally and externally. The damp proof membranes come in different forms depending on use, with smooth surface membranes suitable for floor screed, and mesh membranes suitable for plaster and render finishes.
