Plastering is an essential part of any residential or commercial restoration project. A high-quality plastering job from DMBR will not only provide you with the foundations upon which to decorate the interior of your building, but it will also protect it from humidity and damp issues. A poor plastering job can lead to a multitude of problems; it can leave your walls looking uneven and can result in weak performance when it comes to insulation, energy efficiency and damp proofing.
When plastering the walls of a period or listed property, you will need to take extra care. Walls inside older buildings can become uneven over time, and ceilings can present extra challenges, making successful results from plastering a little harder to obtain.
Experienced plasterers with attention to detail
We specialise in restoring period and listed buildings, so we have many years’ experience in plastering complex interiors. Our team of highly experienced plasterers are equipped with the skills and tools required to take on a variety of plastering and wall insulation jobs; we have worked in public buildings such as schools and councils, right through to Grade I and Grade II listed family homes including National Trust properties. We will ensure the utmost precision and attention to detail when taking on any plastering job and are used to working within the restrictions and guidelines of conservation officers.
One of the most effective materials for plastering properties – particularly period buildings – is lime. Lime is a type of plaster that is made from a mixture of water, sand and lime, and has been in use since ancient times. One of the main advantages of using lime plaster is that it is highly effective in preventing damp. This slow-setting plaster prevents moisture from moving around in other areas, while also providing natural ventilation. It is used to fit in with many older style aesthetics while helping to create warmth in older homes.
We also work with modern plaster materials, which may be more suited to certain styles and types of properties. You may already have an idea of the type of plastering you would like – or the type that is already in use in your property – but we can also help to advise on the most suitable kind.
