What We Do

As leading tradesmen we cover all aspect of plastering.

External Plastering

When choosing an external plaster for your project you need to consider a number of things. The aesthetics of the plaster we find is the primary factor in choosing a plaster but it is important to also consider durability, water absorption, local building regulations and any preservation orders on the building.

Lime Plastering

Lime plastering/rendering is a traditional type of plastering on walls that were  built using old rubble and porous brick. It was applied to these type of walls to protect them from driving wind and rain. The Lime plaster/render absorbed the rain and then allowing it to evaporate before penetrating the walls. 


Insulation Plastering

Older walls may not be insulated to todays standards. To improve the insulation on older walls we can fit insulated plasterboard to your perimeter walls. Insulated plasterboard  helps retain the heat within your home and reduce your heating costs. Adding insulated plasterboard is a good idea during a home renovation. 


Plaster Boarding\Slabbing

Plaster boarding or slabbing is one of the first jobs we do when we start a job. Slabbing provides an ideal surface for future skimming.

External Wall Insulation

External wall insulation offers you a way to improve the overall thermal efficiency of your building. 

With external wall insulation we fix a layer of insulation to your external walls. We then apply a render of your choosing to complete the finish. 

External wall insulation is idea for houses built without cavity insulation or for walls with only a thin layer of insulation in the cavity. The advantages of External wall insulation are that it reduces heat loss, does not disrupt the house during application and it does not reduce the internal dimensions of you building.
