Internal Plastering Stages
Scudding: we use a strong ratio of portland cement mixed with sharp, washed plastering sand. This initial plaster coat is applied to the wall to provide a mechanical key, for the subsequent floating coat.
Beading: we fix metal angle beads to each corner before we start the floating coat. These angle beads reinforce and protect the corners, as well as provide a straight guide for the finish plaster.
Floating Coat: This plaster coat is a sand and cement mix, which is applied to all blockwork walls in the house. It is finished using a float containing a nail, which leaves a slight scratch as a grip for the finish coat. Alternatively, we can apply a coat of Airtite Quite on external facing walls prior to the installation of insulated plasterboards. This is an air-tight plaster and will achieve a higher airtightness result, especially over the long term.
Plasterboards: upon request, we can provide a competitive and fixed price for all your slabbing requirements.
Skimming: skimming is the finish coat of plaster done using Gyproc Skimcoat. Which is a versatile finish coat plaster and can be used on a number of different backgrounds. Such as sand & cement, Gyproc undercoats, and plasterboards.
Bespoke or Curved walls: with over 25 years of experience and a professional team we have both the experience and skills required to finish all internal plastering including bespoke walls or features to the highest standard.
