Importance of plastering
– plastering creates a clean finish that doesn’t require priming before applying paint
– plaster is more durable than skim plaster or joint compound
– the smooth surface of plaster reduces condensation and eliminates drafts for better energy efficiency.
Also, plastering helps to reduce noise and plaster creates a good acoustic environment.

The process we use for plastering
Firstly, we plaster the plasterboard with a typesetting paste. This is done to make sure there’s no plaster seeping through and then we plaster up using a thickness of at least 150mm, which can be made by mixing in more plaster or water as necessary.
The process includes:
– applying plasterer’s “wet mix” plastering over any surfaces that need filling (often leaving it for a day)
– creating backing pieces from wood laths covered with thin layers of plaster on both sides underneath where you want to apply the new plaster surface
Then we use timber strips into trenches cut in the floor around each wall plate, making sure they’re level so everything will meet flush when all finished. We also put down sheet materials like metal.
