Plastering methods and materials

Surfaces would typically be finished with Multi-finish plaster, this is a very common and widely used plaster, board-finish is also widely used. Multi-finish is designed to skim over virtually any surface and board-finish is specifically designed for skimming over plasterboards. Some surfaces may require priming prior to skimming, priming is typically done to reduce surface suction of the plaster, to stop it setting too quickly and increase the working time. A common primer is PVA wood glue watered down, other more specialist primers are also available.

Backing plasters are used to cover a surface such as brick and block work prior to skimming, common backing plasters are Browning, Bonding and Hardwall. All backing plasters have various advantages, disadvantages and specific areas where they should or should not be used. All backing plasters should be allowed to fully cure before skimming.

As well as modern methods of plastering we are fully capable of carrying out more traditional methods such as lime plastering and lath and plaster work.


We can also fit coving to your room. Coving is available in a whole range of styles, sizes and materials such as plaster of paris, polystyrene and gypsum, which is the same material which plasterboard is made from. Coving is usually glued or adhered with coving adhesive.
