Hiring a plasterer

Plasterers are tradesmen who specialise in the application of plaster. Plastering is difficult for an unexperienced person to apply to a satisfactory level, so many people hire professional plasterers to do their plastering for them.

  1. Patching repair: holes and cracks in walls or ceiling are filled or plugged, and then re-plastered for an invisable fix
  2. Plastering: forming a layer of plaster on an interior wall or ceiling. Plasterers apply plaster onto wall surafce to create a smooth finish ready to decorate
  3. Plasterboarding: constructing interior walls and celings using plasterboard or drywall panels from Gysum and fibreglass. Applying plasterboards to walls to create a straight and smooth finish
  4. Cornices and plaster moulds: decorative mouldings made from plaster to enhance the decoration and beauty of your home
  5. Artexing and coving: Artexing is a decorative effect that is applied to the wall's plaster when it is still wet, giving the wall a pattern. Coving is the plaster join between wall and ceiling, or wall and floor. These can also be decorative
