Plastering and Skimming
Plastering and skimming is the application of a finishing plaster known in the trade as a ‘two coat skim’ over walls & ceilings. The result is a smooth surface which is ready for painting or papering.
Rendering is the application of a sand & cement mix to exposed brickwork which offers a good impermeable surface. Internally, outward facing walls are rendered, internal facing walls are bonded. Rendering a wall consists of the application of two layers, firstly the scratch coat which offers the second layer a flat & even surface & also a good key. The second coat is rubbed down to complete a quality finished surface.
Artexing is applied to ceilings & walls to produce a durable, long lasting & artistic finish. On badly cracked or uneven ceilings artex can be used to mask defects & unevenness, giving an old ceiling an almost new appearance.
Screeding is levelling & smoothing the top layer of a material that is poured, such as concrete, so the material is the same height as the forms, or guides, that surround it. While screeding concrete is a common example used in gardening & home improvement.
Drylining is a term, which relates to the securing of plasterboards over stud walls, brickwork & ceilings using screws on timber or adhesive on masonry (Dot + Dab). Once drylined the area can be skimmed. Dry lining uses plasterboard fixed to the walls & is therefore a relatively dry process, which can be decorated shortly after completion. Dry lining can be taped & jointed using special paper tape or it can be skim coated.
