Plastering Services

Bristol Plastering Pros are fully comprehensive plastering ‘near me’ service. Much of the work they do can be categorised as general plastering work, and this encompasses things like reskimming walls and ceilings before they are decorated. It is a typical job for a plasterer, but it is none-the-less an important one because it ensures that homeowners or painters and decorators always have a completely smooth service upon which to work. Painting or wallpapering over uneven or damaged walls will always look less than perfect, and that is where plasterers come in.

Whatever a customer’s requirements may be, our team are the best people to achieve the goal.


Skimming plastering is the process of applying a new layer of finishes to existing walls and ceilings to provide an even surface.

It can be used as a way for homeowners looking to update their homes or change the style they have been living with for years by creating a completely different look without any major renovations needed.

Skimming on internal surfaces can protect the walls from becoming dirty and ensure that the surface remains smooth.

In some cases, the skim coating may involve sand-proofing of existing renderings without re-plastering them too – this treatment will last up to 20 years depending on exposure conditions.”


Rendering Bristol

Plastering rendering is one of the most common services we offer to clients in Bristol and Gloucestershire. We can tailor plastering rendering for any job, from a small room to an entire house or building.

We provide external rendering in Bristol using traditional lime mortars with decorative finishes. It can be used to imitate brick or stone and is often used to even out the surface of a rendering surface.

When it comes to plastering rendering in Bristol, we can offer you several different finishes:

Equestrian plaster rendering is the most common finish for plastering rendering in Bristol. It is achieved by applying the render to an uneven surface then rubbing it with a dry horsehair brush or whisk broom to become rough and fibrous. The result should be textured and porous like natural stone. It will have small holes where hair has penetrated, which are called “tears”.

Creeping Hair Finish Plaster is a rendering finish created when the lime putty is applied over existing surfaces before being rubbed into them using damp hairbrushes or animal fur until they resemble rock formations with many cracks and crevices.

Smooth Plaster Render Finish is achieved by applying a hard lime putty and then rubbing it with damp hair brushes. The result should be textured but not too rough, exhibiting small tears on the surface that resemble mineral formations found in nature.

Dry Lining

One way of stopping corner cracking on walls when carrying out new construction work is using dry lining techniques instead of traditional wet plastering methods. This process can strengthen corners dramatically because they’re built up again and more robustly constructed than before.

Ceiling Works

Homeowners like to have ceilings that are perfectly smooth and attractive. Still, it is not uncommon for ceiling plaster to develop cracks over time or for previous owners to put up their ceiling treatments, such as Artex, which are less than desirable in the modern age.

To get the perfect ceiling look, it is often necessary to have ceiling repairs in the form of plastering, skimming or affixing plasterboard. Plasterers may also help fill holes created by new light fittings and make new or dropped ceilings look more presentable. 

Artex Removal

Artex was once a popular and very fashionable ceiling finish and wall finish, particularly in the 1970s. These days, it has very much fallen out of fashion. Not only that, but Artex, which is a form of textured plaster that forms a distinct pattern, can be difficult and time-consuming to get rid of, especially for people who have busy lives and little experience of stripping such a substance.

The good news is that Bristol Plastering Pros are experts at Artex removal. Homeowners struggling with their retro wall and ceiling treatments need only call in the experts to have them restored to their smooth and stylish selves.

They understand the potential dangers of removing Artex – some ceilings, in particular, can contain asbestos and breathing this in would be very dangerous – and use all of the correct equipment to get it out safely without any risk to their homeowners.

Damp Proofing

Damp proofing protects the plaster from water ingress and ensures moisture doesn’t damage or weaken it.

Waterproof membranes are also applied if necessary as part of damp proofing services, which will help with any future problems caused by leaks for homeowners too.

Aspects of Plastering

Whether it is a commercial or a domestic building, plastering is an essential aspect of any construction work.

The plastering process is the final layer in achieving a finished building, and there are many aspects involved when carrying out this task. The correct plastering techniques and materials only achieve smooth walls and finishes.

Plastered interior walls will provide shelter against external forces such as rain, wind, snow, sun or insects, which can cause damage to your home.

Quality plastering is a skilled job, which takes years to master.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most plasterers will measure how many square metres of wall space will require covering due to how many plastering boards and materials are needed. The average cost for a plasterer will be around £25- £50 per square metre.

It will also depend on the plastering style you require and how many coats a plasterer should use: the more coats, the higher cost of materials.

Skimming is very similar to plastering. It’s a process of smoothing off any surface irregularities, usually with the use of abrasive material such as sandpaper.

The most noticeable difference is that it doesn’t require walls to be plastered and painted afterwards as traditional methods do – so in this sense, it can sometimes save you money on labour costs overall. However, skimming does not provide the same durability or finish quality that a more expensive option would give. And because there are no paint coats involved later down the line, some people may find they need to repaint sooner than anticipated compared with traditional plasterwork.

If the plaster is sound to the point that it’s not crumbly, you can indeed plaster over old plaster. If it’s damaged, you will need to repair the holes and cracks before laying the new plaster.

Skimming is not the same as plastering. It is the process of smoothing out an uneven surface and hiding it with a layer of plaster.

Plastering is laying either wet or dry plasters onto walls, ceilings etc., to cover them up securely and make sure they are waterproofed by putting on at least two coats.

Some plasterers do outside rending as well. It is not uncommon for a plasterer to offer exterior plastering work, but there are specialist firms that focus on this type of thing exclusively.

Outside rendering requires particular skills and experience in order to get the right finish.

There is a huge  demand for plasterers in the UK, some plastering  contractors are  taking on as many jobs as they can.

As such, it’s worth getting an estimate for the job you need done before going with a plasterer so that you know what your best options are and how much they’ll cost you.

Plastering and rendering are two different trades. The main difference is that a plasterer will use plaster for the finish, whereas a render uses cement or lime instead of plaster. Also, the strength of the plaster is usually higher.
