Plastering and Screeding – Often when you are doing improvements to your home you will need some repairs to the plastering of your existing walls or even the skimming of ceilings or new dry lined studding. Sometimes handyman type tradesmen will offer this service, but generally it is advisable to call in a proper experienced plasterer for this kind of work. If you employ an experienced professional plasterer he/she will breeze through the work and the result should be a smooth and level finish with no lumps, bumps or trowel marks, and this is exactly what you want. Plasterers usually tackle a number of other related jobs including screeding, rendering and pebble dashing, so if you have other work in hand talk to them and see what services they provide. If you do not know of any good plasterers you can always check on a site like Rated People, where your job will be sent to trusted local tradesmen, who will contact you directly. As there are no actual plastering qualifications, you will need to look for someone with plenty of experience, and shy away from novices and rogue traders who will probably “bodgit and scarper”.
